  RIVAL SONS ANNOUNCE EUROPEAN HEADLINING TOUR
6th August 2012



rival sons



Rival Sons have confirmed dates for a European headlining tour in support of their forthcoming new album, 'Head Down', which is due to be released on September 17th. The tour kicks off on September 21st with nine shows in the UK, before moving on to continental Europe.

It follows a massively successful run through Europe earlier this summer, where the band performed numerous headlining club shows and huge rock festivals, as well as shows with Guns N' Roses and Evanescence.

Rival Sons drummer Michael Miley comments: "Hey y'all! It's SOO good to be home, back in sunny Los Angeles... Getting some much needed rest after the 'Pressure & Time' onslaught. We had so much fun this summer - and the last year as well - in Europe and UK.

"September 17 marks the new chapter for Rival Sons. SOO looking forward to playing the new material for ya's. Our autumn tour dates will be announced SOON. Thanks to all our awesome super fans. See you soon!"

Rival Sons guitarist Scott Holiday adds: "This last tour was definitely our most successful yet. All the headline shows were at capacity, support shows with kick-ass bands and the festivals were extremely great to us... Great slots, huge crowds, and got to connect and play with some of our favorite bands as well as meet a ton of new great ones. Making lots of new friends. We also got to play some unbelievable new places.

The whole tour was basically a complete onslaught of radicalness. Looking forward to coming back through to all these places in support of the new record this next year. People are always graciously telling us these amazing things like, 'you guys have made me believe rock 'n' roll isn't dead'... 'You guys are the future of rock 'n' roll' etc. But I can wholeheartedly say, the reaction we got from the crowd on this tour reinstated my firm belief that people really want, even NEED rock 'n' roll in their lives."

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
