Post-hardcore rockers Rival Schools made a name for themselves well and truly with the release of their debut record United By Fate, back in 2001. Following the dissolution of the band due to interal differences in the mid-00s, 2011 saw the long-awaited second album from the reunited band in Pedals. The album, not only marking the first release from the band in a decade but a reminder of what we'd all been missing, has proven to be everything people had been expecting from Rival Schools in their absence.
Having toured Australia back in 2009 with the Soundwave Festival, Rival Schools are coming back through this year for a September tour! Along with Toy Boats as support act, Rival Schools will be showing Australian audiences what it's like to be a part of their live show experience and what we've been missing.
