Young Rival are playing at the Rivoli during CMW – their show is on Thursday the 6th march at 12am as part of the Paquin Showcase!
The band have just finished recording an album in New York with Emery Dobyns – Emery has recently recorded with patti smith, Antony and the Johnsons, Battles, The Black Crows and YOUNG RIVAL. The recordings are in the final stages of mixing and needless to say, they sound incredible.
Young Rival toured in the fall with The Sadies and are set to do a Spring tour with the Born Ruffians – their live show is impressive to say the least… the records sound great but the live stuff will blow your mind.
The band have come a long way since their debut release on Sunny Lane Records and are now looking for something new – their old tracks have been placed in a handful of movies recently but that’s probably the last you’ll hear of that sound – Young Rival have evolved and found the perfect balance between The Zombies and the Arctic Monkeys it would seem.
I’ll leave it at that - come and have a drink with me and see for yourself. This is the start of something really good…
