Influential rockers Rival Schools have always had a feverishly devoted following, one that has been anticipating new music from the quartet for nearly a decade. Now that the band is ready to deliver Pedals (March 8th; PhotoFinish/Atlantic), the follow-up to their classic debut album, they’ve decided to reward their fans by offering some extra goodies. All pre-orders of Pedals will include a digital download of the album, a signed Rival Schools lithograph poster, and a download of the new song “Shot After Shot” that will be available immediately upon purchase. Additionally, there will be various bundles available that each include anything from a hoodie to a piece of rare custom vinyl. See below for more info on the various packages, and to make a pre-order purchase head over to www.rivalschools.net/preorder.
After giving a sneak of the new material with the video for “Shot After Shot,” in January the guys will be shooting a video for “Wring It Out,” the first official single off Pedals. Rival Schools will also play a brief run of east coast shows in March, leading up to the album’s release. The guys will then head to Europe for a co-headlining tour with Trail of Dead.
