Rival Sons - Keep On Swinging (video)

Love me some Rival Sons!! They just released a new video Keep On Swinging from their upcoming album Head Down.  The album is due to be released on September 17th. If you like vintage soulful kick ass stripped down blues based rock and roll, then Rival Sons is your band. No pretensions here. They are as good as it gets! If Keep On Swinging is any indication of what Head Down will sound like, I'm jumping to the front of the queue to buy the album!

RIVAL SONS guitarist SCOTT HOLIDAY comments:
"Churches, people feelin' the spirit, and a handful of snakes!  That's a little taste of the new video - the first from our new record, Head Down.  The song?  'Keep On Swinging'.  Directed by our buddy Greg Ephraim, who did 'Pressure and Time' and 'All Over the Road', this idea was an easy choice when we read his treatment.  A little bit of southern baptist evangelical churchin' spirit and a big dose of rock 'n' roll.  We actually had a bunch of people from the actual parish of the church we played in sitting in during the performance, and I think they were actually feeling the spirit!  It was pretty far out...  A really fun way to kick off the new album.  People fainting in the aisles, Jay as a possessed preacher and, well, you never can go wrong with the serpent making an appearance in a rock 'n' roll video."

HEAD DOWN is available to pre-order now on CD, digisleeve CD and limited edition audiophile vinyl.  A special stencil edition created by the band themselves is also available exclusively from the Earache Webstore.  Pre-order the album now in Europe at http://bit.ly/jucwYJ or in North America at http://bit.ly/mtaFfm
