Rival Sons’ new LP was produced by GRAMMY Award-winner Dave Cobb at Nashville’s famed RCA Studio A. The band also worked on the record at the legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Muscle Shoals, AL. The label Low Country Sound is an imprint of Elektra. It was founded by Cobb in 2015.
“The primal intensity of Feral Roots reflects a certain unrest at the heart of the album,” vocalist Jay Buchanan said. “With its nuanced explorations of both the wild and domestic struggles of love and truth, Feral Roots ultimately argues for pushing beyond pure survival instincts and striving for something more exalted: to reclaim a long diluted genre through a galvanizing return to form.”
Exclusive pre-order bundles are also available. Limited edition vinyl in addition to CD and digital download. Autographed lithographs of the album’s cover art are also available. They were painted by renowned contemporary artist Martin Wittfooth. Fans who pre-order will receive an instant downloads of “Feral Roots” along with two other recently released tracks – “Do Your Worst” and “Back In The Woods.”

The band will make stops at New York’s Brooklyn Steel, Philadelphia’s Union Transfer, Los Angeles’ Henry Fonda Theatre, and more. Very special guests for the tour are The Sheepdogs.
