California hard rockers Rival Sons have been confirmed to play at this year’s edition of the Download Festival, which is held at Donington Park in Leicestershire, UK from June 8th to June 10th.

The band, who are currently on a sold out tour in the UK with Black Stone Cherry, will be performing on the second stage on the final day of the festival, and join a line-up including Metallica, Black Sabbath, Soundgarden, Slash and more.

Rival Sons guitarist Scott Holiday comments: “The lore of Download has been circumnavigating us for some time now, so we couldn’t be more pleased to be asked to join the festivities.  This is also probably the most prominent festival we are told to play by our fans.  Well… it’s on, now!  Who wouldn’t be ecstatic to play with some of the greatest bands on earth, for a huge throng of fired-up festival goers?!  Very pleased.
