Nashville/Los Angeles quartet Rival Sons has released “Do Your Worst,” the first new music to be made available from the band’s forthcoming LP, expected to arrive early next year on Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb’s Low Country Sound imprint via Atlantic.
Vocalist Jay Buchanan commented on how “Do Your Worst” was born: “Sometimes environment really shapes a song. Hunkered down in a threadbare shack deep in the south Tennessee woods, we (Scott and I) sweated it out and just wrote for a week straight. We were set out on an old causeway surrounded by neglected reservoirs and overgrown with shit you don’t want to see and yes; infested with all manner snakes. The song is a whiskey nightmare crawling with copperheads to me.”
Featuring Buchanan, guitarist Scott Holiday, bassist Dave Beste and drummer Mike Miley, Rival Sons are wrapping up work on their new disc, which was recorded in the historic RCA Studio A in Nashville and the legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Alabama with longtime collaborator Cobb helming the production.
