There was a ten year gap between Rival Schools debut album, United By Fate (2001) and their second official release, Pedals (2011). That’s a bigger gap than was between Quicksand’s debut and Rival Schools. That doesn’t mean Rival Schools was silent during that time. In 2003, the band recorded a follow-up to United By Fate…but the common problems that plague every band caused the album to never see the light of day…until now. This week, the re-mastered…maybe even re-recorded version of that second album, Found, finally gets an official release. Though it had been floating around the internet for years…this finished version is light years in quality above anything else out there.
