As they embark on a national headlining tour, pop/rock outfit RIVALS releases their newest track, “Dark Matter,” with a sultry and powerful music video directed by Christian Lawrence, which can be viewed here. Produced by John Espy (The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus) and mixed/mastered by Cody Stewart (The Browning, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus), the track signifies a new chapter for RIVALS, scaling down on electronic elements and presenting raw instrumentation and vocals. The track was inspired by vocalist Kalie Wolfe’s perseverance as an independent, female artist, embracing her powerful femme energy every time she falls, to only get back up stronger. Wolfe elaborates:

“Were independent now, no label, no backing, just us and some bitchen ladies to push us through (our booking agent Ashely Ventura and our PR rep Steph Maksimow). ‘Dark Matter’ is our restart, our refresh of us and who we are…it’s a song I wrote about just being a complete badass against all odds, a song about slipping but recovering. Also, a little nod at our bae Ariana Grande, if god is a woman, well then so is the devil <3.” - Kalie Wolfe, RIVALS

The Dark Matter Tour will be supported by Ashland (Rise Records), Josh Lambert, and the star of SHOWTIME Network’s Shameless, Ethan Cutkosky, who will be appearing on select dates of the tour. Check out tour dates below and that new track HERE.
