Rival Sons Unleash ‘Electric Man’ Video as They Gear Up for Spring Tour
Rival Sons have released a music video for their song “Electric Man.” Check out the 4-minute mad science themed clip above, which shows footage of the group rocking out, spliced between footage of scientific experiments and measurements.
Of the clip, bassist Dave Beste tells Entertainment Weekly, “We were recently asked to be an experiment in a laboratory study. The people behind the study evidently wanted to measure our rock-n-roll power, and so we played 'Electric Man' and in the process we broke all their equipment. Somebody taped it and we made a special video out of it. So watch it, and enjoy it. We love science.”
A while back, Loudwire had the chance to talk with singer Jay Buchanan and he had this to say about the single. "The lyrics on that song, it’s just a party song. I’ll read reviews and people really try to hand my ass to me and really cut me down about juvenile lyrics and actually I’ll just take the piss out of myself... The song is about grooving and about that feeling when you’re on the dance floor, there’s nothing heavy about that song and that was the aim. I don’t have a problem with that because sometimes you don’t want to think and you just want to shake your ass and that’s it."
They're sure to be playing that song and more, when they kick off their tour on May 7 in Toronto. They’ll play throughout the U.S. before wrapping things up back in Canada on June 14, when they rock Vancouver. Check out a full list of their tour dates below.
