The Skinny: French three-piece band RISE are gearing up to release their debut full-length album Resilience, produced by Jochem Jacobs. Today, we’re stoked to offer a first listen to the guys’ brand new song, “About ‘Friends'”. Mixing post-metal, indie-pop, alternative, and black metal, RISE’s music is perfectly suited for fans of Deftones, Deafheaven, Muse, or Devin Townsend.
Borrowing its influences from the broadest musical horizon possible, RISE seeks above all to convey emotions. The power of rock, the heaviness of metal and the classical drama are combined, thus giving birth to a rich and astonishing mixture. The topics approached, halfway between hope and melancholy, are primarily based on the concept of Resilience, dear to the project’s originator.
