Rival Sons Releasing New Album Next Week

.
Rival Sons will be releasing their new album, Head Down, next Tuesday (9/18) via iTunes in North America.

The album will also be released overseas next week: September 14 in Europe and September 17 in the U.K., and the group will be launching a five-week U.K./European headlining tour kicking off September 21 in Brighton, England.

About the album title, frontman Jay Buchanan says, "We took a lyric from one of the songs that exemplified the process of making the record. Head Down comes from the phrase, 'Keep your head down and keep on swinging.' I thought it was fitting, and it works perfectly with the album cover."

The album cover was painted by artist Jason Holley (Josh Ritter, Ray LaMontagne). Guitarist Scott Holiday adds, "I began searching for the right artist for our cover on the interwebs, just mulling around, and very quickly came across Jason. I was immediately taken aback by his aesthetic and style and felt he had a few pieces already done that I would be into using. We sent him the record and discussed ideas that we felt reflected the music and process. He created an original piece, painted in oil. The end result is pretty symbolic and interesting—something that, in my opinion, reflects the record beautifully."
