Rival Sons to support Evanescence on North American tour

Californian blues-rockers Rival Sons have confirmed a North American tour supporting gothic rockers Evanescence.

Rival Sons will be joining Evanescence for the three-week trek, which kicks off on October 10th in Oakland, California and finishes on the other side of the country in New York City on November 1st.

Rival Sons guitarist Scott Holiday comments:

“We’re stoked to be touring across America and into Canada this October with Evanescence.  Very happy to be invited by them.  Between Evanescence, Pretty Reckless and us, the bill is pretty well diversified and will definitely give us the chance to play to a new demographic of rock fans, which we’re always thriving for.  We’ve also been so busy in Europe for most of this year; this tour will give us the opportunity to bring our rock ‘n’ roll back to fans we’ve been missing here in the States.

“We will return to Europe immediately at the end of this tour, so if you want to catch us in the USA, this will probably be your last chance in 2011.  Rest assured, we will definitely be back in 2012…  Super duper, mega full-force!”
