DETROIT, MI - Detroit-based alternative rock band, Rival City, featuring Jeff Gutt (X-Factor finalist), drummer Will Hunt (Evanescence), guitarist and programmer Geno Lenardo (Filter) and bass/background vocalist KC Jenkins, have premiered their brand new lyric video for their single, "Fading Out", exclusively today via AXS. Watch HERE."'Fading Out' is the inner turmoil of being in a relationship that isn't working or having trouble," Gutt explains. "It's about trying to find that common ground and wondering if it's even still worth it. In the end it's about love and all of our need for it. We all want the same thing but sometimes we have to make the most of the chances we have in front of us." The single is now available on Spotify, iTunes, GooglePlay and Amazon.

Gutt initially staked his claim in bands like Dragonfly, Acrylic, Band With No Name and Innerfaith, but got his chance in the most unlikely of ways. The musician made his first appearance on The X Factor and was dismissed after making it to the Top 12. He apparently made enough of an impression to be called back the following year. Even X Factor creator and judge Simon Cowell, publicly admitted that eliminating Gutt so early the previous season was a mistake. The second time proved to be the charm, as Gutt's renditions of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," Radiohead's "Creep" and Aerosmith's "Dream On" won him fans the world over.

After dazzling audiences and judges with his commanding voice and electrifying physical presence, Jeff set out to form his own band, and with Will, Geno and KC, he found the chemistry, songwriting creativity and showmanship that has developed into their own genre-defining sound and look in the alternative rock landscape.

"Fading Out" is the latest release from Rival City. Stay tuned for a series of new music, videos, and tour dates coming soon.
