Rise 10th Anniversary Edition BLACK Vinyl
180g numbered Black Vinyl with printed innersleeves.
Almost 10 years to the day, 17th June 2016 sees the release of RISE - 10th Anniversary Edition. Fully re mastered, this celebratory issue of the band’s successful debut which broke the 100,000 sales barrier, comes bundled with all sorts of extras including the never before heard 2004 demos, rare acoustic versions and exclusive mixes of tracks that never made the original album.
Lead singer and front man Cormac Neeson said “This album will forever hold a special place in our hearts. As with most of the music we release, we approached the 10th Anniversary of Rise from a music fans perspective. We spent weeks sifting through our old demos and photos from that period in our lives and found some stuff I'd forgotten even existed! We also went back into the studio to freshen up a new version of Under The Sky and of course there's a never before released vinyl format of this record which I’m personally looking forward to annoying the neighbours with when I get back home to Belfast!”
The artwork has been revised by original designer Paul Chessell and developed to include lots of old photos, liner notes and period memories penned by each member of the band. The track listing includes the original album re-mastered, 8 demos from 2004 and 4 mixes of tracks from 2006 plus a brand new mix of Under The Sky.
RISE gave the band, who hail from Northern Ireland, a hit not only in the UK but in other key international territories, notably Japan. The 2006 album set them on their way to not only performing shows with the likes of AC/DC, Deep Purple, Whitesnake, Rolling Stones and Paul Rodgers but also headlining shows across the world. Classic Rock magazine named The Answer ‘Best New Band’ in 2005 and in the same year Jimmy Page, who has attended several concerts, also gave them his seal of approval.
The RISE - 10th Anniversary Edition release will be welcomed by the fans many of whom have requested that physical vinyl versions of this material be made available. The release certainly sees the band marking and celebrating what has gone before, whilst very much having one eye on what is yet to come.
