Rival Sons is releasing their new album, Great Western Valkyrie, in the USA on June 10. The album was produced by Dave Cobb at LCS Studios in Nashville earlier this year.

"I'd like to think we became a little bit more of ourselves making this record and that the selection of influences has broadened a bit," states Rival Sons frontperson Jay Buchanan. "I think Scott [Holiday, Rival Sons guitarist] really expanded his approach in these songs, and you can definitely hear it in the moodier tracks, while on the hot tracks you can hear him forcing his aviary of Firebirds to drink moonshine. Dangerous. There are some serious house burners on GWV, but there are also a couple where more subtlety was required from the arrangement."

Great Western Valkyrie is available to pre-order now on digi-sleeve CD and limited edition coloured vinyl, as well as an ultra-limited box set including the following:
* Double LP on limited clear vinyl with etched fourth side
* Signed band photo insert
* Custom vinyl slipmat
* 5 bonus track CD
