Rivers In the Wasteland is the follow up to The Reckoning, a collection of timeless American rock and roll that caught the attention of many including NPR, Elle, USA Today and The New York Times who simply said "this gifted band makes anthemic Southern rock" and Entertainment Weekly who applauds the bands "arena muscle" and "porch-pickin' country ... sharp enough to inspire both lighter waving and moonshine chugging."
