Rivals come to The Litterbox in Elizabeth

Rivals come to The Litterbox in Elizabeth

(ELIZABETH, NJ) -- After a successful spring run, pop/rock number RIVALS is hitting the road again. This time accompanied by You, Me, And Everyone We Know and Josh Lambert. The Dangerous tour is named after RIVALS’ intense upcoming single, “Dangerous,” which hits all streaming platforms July 13th. The tour comes to The Litterbox in Elizabeth, NJ on August 3rd.

“We’re so hyped to go out on another run and play some shows with You, Me, and Everyone We Know and of course our boy Josh Lambert! We have new music coming and lots of it at that! Be sure to come hang with us and let’s dance and cry and sing and everything in between. Love ya” - Kalie Wolfe

RIVALS’ latest album, Sad Looks Pretty on Me, exists in two worlds. The Los Angeles quartet — vocalist Kalie Wolfe, bassist Sebastian Clarke, guitarist Micket Woodle, and drummer Josh Alves — draw a wobbly line between blossoming pop-rock and wilting post-hardcore, often alternating between sides for earth-shattering effects. By wearing their inspirations proudly (and enlisting the help of contemporaries), RIVALS clamor for the attention of both radio listeners and bedroom moshers. Their explosive live act—which has garnered the attention of audiences nationwide—will wear this new set of songs.

Try this on for size: how many songs have you heard that begin like “Fake Rich,” out of the gate with stuttering percussion, but end up turning the corner with a gnarly breakdown courtesy of Cane Hill frontman Elijah Witt? It’s a perfect distillation of the band’s core ethos: create a club hit, curl it around sneering guitars and urgent drums, and tear it down. While this mentality of pop-metal destruction is relentless and well-stocked here, like on the pitch-shifted alt-metal of “On the Loose” and the dirtied, jagged synth-rock of “Little Mistakes,” Wolfe and company are concerned with creation, too. From the ashes of tortuous mental anguish, RIVALS always rise to the challenge of confronting demons head-on—while fashioning their moods into something irresistible.  

The Dangerous Tour kicks off in Niagara Falls, NY on July 29, 2022, finishing up in Atlanta, GA on August 7,2022. For more information, visit wearervls.com
