“Keep On Swinging”, the new video from California blues rockers RIVALS SONS, can be seen below. The band once again worked with director Greg Ephraim, who also helmed the group’s “Pressure And Time” and “All Over The Road” clips.
Commented RIVAL SONS frontman Jay Buchanan: “Shooting the video for ‘Keep On Swinging’ was a pleasure. Snake handling while wailing to a congregation in an old church is pretty high up there on the list of odd ways to pass the time; excuse me while I go to hell.”
Added RIVAL SONS drummer Michael Miley: “We recently returned from an exciting expedition; it was an adventure. The Spirit was moving in that room. We were playing in a church somewhere in the South (can’t reveal exact location) and had to convince this congregation we could be a musical catalyst for the casting out of demons; we succeeded. We had to tame snakes with our music. There was a swarm of ravens. A girl that was baptized was on fire! Crazy stuff! And it was all caught on tape… I’m sure it will be all over the interwebs soon. Be on the lookout.”
RIVAL SONS is featured in a new interview in which he discusses his musical upbringing, recording the band’s new album, “Head Down”, in Nashville, and some of the equipment used by the group in the studio. Check it out below.
