The break-up of Pacific Air in mid September marked a real loss, but not all is gloomy as front-man Ryan Marshall Lawhon's new solo project, Mating Rituals, looks ultra-promising.

Young Rising Sons have a positive attitude that cannot be subdued and the talent to drive it home with every. single. song.

There really isn't anything holding these guys back!
