Rival Sons – “Open My Eyes (Acoustic)”

Long Beach, California based hard rock band Rival Sons have just released a two disc tour edition of their most recent album “Great Western Valkyrie” which came out last year on Earache Records. To promote this new version of the album, they have dropped a single which is a stripped down live acoustic version of their song “Open My Eyes” (which can be listened to below via YouTube).

This acoustic redux of “Open My Eyes” definitely does not have the heavy punch of the original, but the pleasing delta blues slide guitar will make you forget about it pretty quickly. Despite the lack of a power cord involved in the making of the music, the song is no less electrifying in this newer version of it. It has this warm down home kind of feeling that will get you to a point where you feel lost in the music while swaying from left to right and plenty of other ways.

Rival Sons is currently in Nashville working on recording a new album before they continue their current tour with Deep Purple and start another one with Black Sabbath early next year.
