C&L Late Night Music Club: Rival Sons Darkfighter

I asked my friend Joe Daly to pick a band we should feature in the LNMC, and he chose Rival Sons. I didn’t know much about them, but after listening to their music, I understand why this was his pick.

Daly wrote a brilliant article in 2023 for Classic Rock magazine Loudersound that discusses them in depth.

After six albums in 15 years and touring alongside a raft of A-listers, new album Darkfighter finds Rival Sons ready to take it to the next level.

While diehard fans of any band tend to be resistant to change, it’s hard to imagine Rival Sons fans not being exhilarated by Darkfighter.


Darkfighter might just be Rival Sons’ masterpiece. It showcases rich emotional depth and compositional maturity, not to mention a dramatic metamorphosis from the swaggering Led Zeppelin worship of their early days to the here and now, where they have conjured a modern, stridently affecting sound that is very much their own. The plan is to play the entire album live on their upcoming tour.

Here is the band’s 2024 tour schedule. They will be back in the States in September.
