Rival Sons have released a stop-motion video for their track Until The Sun Comes. View it below.
It’s taken from the band’s last album, Head Down, which Classic Rock named the number-two album of 2012. The band also won Breakthrough Act Of The Year at our Roll of Honour Award ceremony in November.
But while Rival Sons are enjoying the limelight, they’re hoping not to be branded with the label of being a retro act.
Guitarist Scott Holiday tells Dropping The Needle: “I was raised by my mom and dad and aunts and uncles – they’re all rock and roll people. They’d be blastin’ early Van Halen, lots of Zeppelin, lots of Stones, lots of Beatles, and, of course, early Aerosmith. It was the sound in my head.
“I’ve made much more modern sounding records, but I never felt it had exactly quite what I wanted. Then, I came across Dave Cobb, our producer, and he was very like-minded.
“We’re not trying to make an old-sounding record or a retro record. We’re just trying to make a record that sounds good. We’re using plenty of new things and tons of really old stuff, too. Not to be cool, but just to make the best sounding record. I’m touchy because we get the ‘retro’ tag a lot.”
