Rival Kings’ new single Drown is here, and it’s a pumping, raging beast. The band turn their earthy song-writing into modern pop music like it’s nobody’s business.
The six-piece band’s new single Drown, heralds their second album WAR, the successor to their acclaimed debut Citizens (2014). WAR is a commentary on the inner struggle of a generation full of doubt and enforced individuality. It’s an ode to the lack of orientation of the so-called Generation Y, full to the brim with medication, captives of their own freedom, and in many ways more narrow-minded than the generations they deplore. A lonely generation.
The song reflects what the Rival Kings do best: Perform music with an energy that has managed to thrill and fascinate crowds at countless festivals & club shows (Zurich Open Air, Gurten-Festival, M4Music Festival, Stimmen Festival).
