Formed in 2009, Nashville/LA quartet Rival Sons play a brand of soulful hard rock dripping with the blues and swaggering to a good-time groove. They're arguably the one of the best bands in the swelling ranks of '70s revivalist acts.
The Virginmarys exploded onto the rock music scene in 2013 with their album 'King of Conflict', which debuted #3 on the Billboard New Artist Alternative Chart and #8 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart. With 'King of Conflict', The Virginmarys were dubbed the buzz band of SXSW, received major support from US Active Rock and Alternative radio, and press acclaim from Rolling Stone, Alternative Press, USA Today, and more.
The band followed up with 2016’s Divides which, in addition to major press, was hailed by Apple Music, Spotify, Yahoo! Music, and more. The Virginmarys have brought their highly charged live show to tours throughout the US, Europe, and Japan, supporting artists including Queens of the Stone Age, Shinedown, Eagles of Deathmetal, Crobot, and hitting huge festivals to include Reading & Leeds, Download Festival, Sonisphere, Isle of Wight Festival, and more.
After spending a year jamming AC/DC and blues covers together in pubs around the Midlands, Andy Masson (Vocals/Guitar), Alex Masson (Bass/Backing Vocals) and Mike McQuillan (Drums) all relocated to Guildford, Surrey to study at the prestigious Academy of Contemporary Music. It is here they met Steve Balkwill (Lead Guitar), and joined forces in March 2009 to create The Fury - a super-tight, locally renowned and heralded young hard-rock band.
