Rival State Tour And New Album
In celebration of their impending, debut album, Apollo Me, Rival State will be hitting the road for 5 shows across New Zealand.
Apollo Me reunites the band with a new sound and a new aesthetic. The band began writing for their upcoming October 12 release in 2011, working with British producer Matt Hyde who has also worked with the likes of Slipknot, Trivium, Funeral for a Friend and Ash, just to name a few.
"You can expect a very diverse record with no repeats of stale ideas, but a joint union of rock n roll, punk, and grunge. We wrote the record we had always envisioned combined with sounds, tones, and ideas we had been experimenting with over our time apart. We believe we have written a record that is new, fresh, and we are extremely proud of it and feel it is worth a listen!" says Luke Van Hoof.
