To mark the announcement Rival Schools have shared a new version of United By Fate standout, “Holding Sand.” Recorded by Schreifels, the acoustic version strips off the distortion and churning bass of the original to reveal the expert song-craft that has always been at the core of the musician’s storied career.
United By Fate is a debut album of Rival Schools, a band that consists of Walter Schreifels (Gorilla Biscuits, Youth of Today Quicksand), drummer Sammy Siegler (Youth of Today, Judge, CIV), bassist Cache Tolman (Iceburn, Institute), and Ian Love (Burn, Atlantic/Pacific).
