Los  Angeles swaggering and soulful rockers Rival Sons will hit the largest single day  sporting  event in the world, the Indianapolis 500. The group will  be  performing  live on the Versus Network this Friday (5/28) around 1:30pm ET at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway part of Miller Lite Carb Day and at the IZOD RacetotheParty event held this Saturday (5/29) at Monument Circle in Downtown Indianapolis, sharing the stage with Camp Freddy.

Rival Son‘s song “Tell Me Something” from their fiery debut album Before The Fire is  being  used  in  Izod Indy Car Series TV campaign. Almost 400,000 people will gather at the Speedway this Sunday, May 30 to celebrate speed, technology, cars and stars of the IZOD IndyCar Series.

Since forming in June 2008, Rival Sons line up, singer Jay Buchanan, guitarist Scott Holiday, bassist  Robin Everhart  and  drummer Michael Miley have received acclaim  for their blend of hard rock swagger with blistering musicianship.

The  website Pinpoint Music (www.pinpointmusic.com) picked Before The Fire as  one  of the Top 25 albums of the year, saying, “The Rival Sons are like rock  and roll defibrillators–surging electric life back into the heart of what  we  thought  was  lost.”   Their  song  “Memphis  Sun”  was listed on Buzzbands.la  official playlist for 2009 and the Huffington Post cited them as a “band  to  watch.” As testament to the buzz surrounding Rival Sons, they  have  opened  for such powerhouse icons as AC/DC (Las Vegas, 4/09/10, MGM Grand Arena) and Alice Cooper (Los Angeles, 10/28/10, Nokia Theater).

    Never heard of this band. I’m digging the sound. It’s retro but it’s done right. I can see how the race fans would dig these guys as the singers vocals reminds me a little of Kix Brooks from Brooks & Dunn believe it or not! Listen to Hillbilly Deluxe and see if you hear it. Overall good band and well written article.
    Good Job!
