Rising to the Occasion

Rise are Daz Whittaker (vocals), Ernie Robinson (guitar), Lee Graham (bass) and Dale Baker (drums).

Formed in early 2013 in Manchester, RISE hid themselves away to write and rehearse the songs that would shape them. Working closely with friends N-Trance in the studio, the sound on record is that of a band with years of experience yet not lacking aggression and hunger.

Forging a sound somewhere between The Longcut, The Music, and The Verve circa-93, RISE have a unique and refreshing sound, simply describing themselves as ‘space rock dance’.

Debut Single ‘Purple Heart’ is what RISE are all about and shows of all of their best traits in one song.

Released digitally on Monday 29th April, the track will be available from all Major Online Retailers.
