Rival Sons have announced their first full North American headline tour. The dates include stops at New York’s Brooklyn Steel, Philadelphia’s Union Transfer and Los Angeles’s Henry Fonda Theatre. The Sheepdogs will support all U.S. dates.
Pre-sales begin Wednesday, December 5th at 10:00 a.m. local time; all remaining tickets will go on sale to the public on Friday, December 7 at 10:00 a.m. local.
The upcoming tour schedule marks the release of Rival Sons’ much-anticipated new album, Feral Roots, which arrives everywhere on January 25th through Low Country Sound/Atlantic Records.
The primal intensity of Feral Roots reflects a certain unrest at the heart of the album, sparked by Buchanan’s recent move to Tennessee. “With all the stimuli we’re constantly receiving these days, I think a lot of people have a desire to live with more freedom and simplicity,” noted Buchanan. “There’s a longing for your truer nature to prevail, and to reclaim some sort of wildness.” But with its nuanced explorations of art and love and truth, “Feral Roots” ultimately argues for pushing beyond pure survival instincts and striving for something more exalted: an unbreakable commitment to creating beauty of your own.

Rival Sons are also set for a special headline performance at 98.9 The Bear’s Electric Christmas, on December 15th at Fort Wayne, Indiana’s Pierre’s Entertainment Center.
