RIVAL SONS--Jay Buchanan (vocals), Scott Holiday (guitar), Michael Miley (drums) and Dave Beste (bass)--recently released a 2-Disc Tour Edition of their critically acclaimed 2014 album, Great Western Valkyrie (on October 16, 2015 via Earache Records). After storming onto charts around the world upon its release and being rated the number one album of 2014 by Classic Rock magazine, the new limited edition CD includes a bonus disc featuring six powerful bonus tracks (full track list below).
