Additional Information

Nearly a decade after the release of their classic debut United By Fate, Rival Schools have finally returned from their hiatus to deliver their long-awaited follow-up, Pedals, available March 8th on Photo Finish/Atlantic Records. The album is an immensely satisfying second dose of what made the band so cherished when they first hit the scene, and serves a reminder of their influence on so many young bands active today.

When Walter Schreifels, Sammy Siegler, Ian Love, and Cache Tolman joined forces they were touted a "supergroup," having played in bands like Gorilla Biscuits, Glassjaw, Youth of Today, Quicksand, Burn, CIV, and Iceburn, to name a few. With a shared desire to continue progressing forward from their roots in the hardcore scene, the guys crafted a sound that fused heavy rock of all varieties with anthemic melodies and sophisticated hooks. Some argued over whether to call the beloved quartet "alternative rock," "post hardcore," or a bevy of other labels that didn't quite fit, while others just rocked out and sang along.
