The Rising release their sing-along song for the summer. Recorded live while on tour with Lucy Spraggan in Dublin, Ireland. On the 16th May 2023 in Dublin’s Opium Live. The recording shows the band fully live with no additional post production. Giving listeners a taste of the band’s energetic live shows.
The Rising are best described as blending the fresh-faced sounds of today’s Pop/Rock with a dash of Modern Country Pop/Rock Stylings fresh from Nashville. With a strong focus on their DIY ethos they write, record, produce and play every instrument on their music.
They were based in Leamington Spa, UK for several years. But, due to pressures associated with lockdowns they were (sadly) forced to move back to their native home in Belfast, Northern Ireland. However, they are hoping to return.
To date The Rising have received support from the likes of BBC Introducing, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio London, Planet Rock Radio, Guitarist Magazine, Maverick Magazine, Hot Press Magazine and Spotify editorial playlist support, such as ‘Very Nearly Nashville’. Their single ‘Bruise You Left’ has achieved over 280,000 streams on Spotify.
Constant touring across Ireland, UK and Europe has allowed the band to build up a healthy fanbase as well as perform at prestigious events such as Big Feastival, Pub In The Park and Country 2 Country Festival in London’s 02.
The Rising have released two albums and several EPs. However, in 2020 the duo embarked on a strategy of releasing a single every six weeks. This constant work ethic resulted in the band being named Band Of The Month on BBC Introducing. They are currently recording their follow up full length album as a Vinyl Boxset which was successfully crowdfunded via Kick Starter.
The Rising host an interactive live streamed show every Monday night at 8pm on their Facebook page. Filmed in High definition with studio quality sound.
