The 2011 full-length debut from Toronto rock trio Rival Boys, Mutual Feelings Of Love, elicited just that in those exposed to it. More of those feelings were generated by their Ice Storm EP earlier this year, and RB are quickly back with a very impressive new full-length, Animal Instincts. The band is led by the sister/brother pairing of powerhouse singer/bassist/violinist Lee and guitarist Graeme Rose, and they recorded the album at elite studio Revolution Recording, with engineer Joe Dunphy.
The disc was launched at Toronto's The Great Hall last week. Future gigs include Hamilton's Casbah (July 9) and Toronto's Fort York (July 27).
