Dark Pop Rock – not sure I had ever heard of that sub-genre before I stumbled upon a hot little band out of Los Angeles called RIVALS. They just had a new album come out a few months back and they are currently on tour in support of Red Jumpsuit Apparatus– speaking of that, they’ll be making a stop at The Foundry Concert Club in Lakewood on July 12th, more on that shortly.
Wanted to take a few moments and introduce you to this interesting twist on the metal scene. Consisting of vocalist Kalie Wolfe, bassist Sebastian Chamberlain, guitarist Micket Woodle, and drummer Josh Alves, the band has been gigging around for the last four years and it appears as if they may be on the cusp of breaking big.
They just rolled out a video for the title track from their debut album Damned Soul – you should listen, you can click on the video above.
Personally – I very much dig the track OVER IT. Check out the video for that one as well.
So – I mentioned earlier that RIVALS will be in town – that happens on July 12th when they open in support of Red Jumpsuit Apparatus at The Foundry Concert Club. CLICK HERE to get yourself admission to the show. Catch in a small club while you still can.
