TC Electronic – Rival Sons’ Scott Holiday Presents “A Little Slap/A Lotta Freak Out” for Flashback 2 Delay

We hung out with Rival Sons when they visited TC town Aarhus in the Spring of 2017 and got down to making some new TonePrints with enigmatic guitarist, Scott Holiday. For his Rival Sons rig, Scott likes his delays weird and quirky, and is definitely not into the whole “pristine studio delay” thing. Thanks to the MASH footswitch and our new tape delay algorithm, he was able to get just the right amount of controllable weirdness to match his taste. As Scott describes it, “It’s unruly but it’s obviously very…

Premier Guitar – Rig Rundown – Rival Sons’ Scott Holiday

Premier Guitar invaded Rival Sons’ soundcheck for a Rundown of Scott Holiday’s offsets, Oranges, and three boards worth of tone treats. Holiday wanted a guitar that fit the sound and image of Rival Sons. He went with “Bluebird,” a 1999 Gibson Custom Historic 1965 Firebird VII Reissue. It’s totally stock and strung with Cleartone (.011–.050) strings. When Holiday wants to get low and rumbly, he goes with this 2015 Kauer Baritone Banshee Custom, strung with Cleartone (.016–.071) strings. For something hollow-ish, Holiday plays “Ol’ Bess,” his 2014 Fano Alt de…

100% Rock Magazine – INTERVIEW: MIKEY MILEY, RIVAL SONS – May 2016

Here is a sample of the interview conducted by Shane Pinnegar. Getting down to business, Miley considers how they approach playing to someone else’s crowd, especially on a megatour like Black Sabbath’s. “It’s kind of the story of our lives, really,” he admits. “We’ve been up against the world, so to speak, since we’ve been a band just because we’re not really making concessions to modern rock radio. We’re trying to play rock the way I think it was originally intended. Maybe we’re failing, maybe we’re not, but that’s kind…
