Guitarist Scott Holiday stated:
“Regretfully, we have to let our fans know that our friend and bassist Robin Everhart has left the RIVAL SONS. It is an amicable split and we shall all remain brothers. We wish him well. On the upswing, we will be having our good friend and bass slayer Dave Beste sitting in for the upcoming tour. We invite you to fear not; although we will miss our pal, everyone is extremely excited and revved up for the next chapter in the Rival Sons’ future.”
Bassist Robin Everhart added:
“After years of intensive touring with Rival Sons, I have come to the conclusion that I am not a road warrior and that the ‘rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle’ is not for me. I will miss playing the music that we made together, and I’m proud of our many accomplishments over the last eight years. As always, thanks to all the fans for their listenership and devotion — it’s been an honor to play for you. Keep on swinging!”
