The Rising present their 'Moving On Tour 2019. This gig is a special home-coming show. This venue is super special being Belfast's only Floating Arts Venue. Tickets are super limited at 70.
The Rising are a Country Rock band from Northern Ireland. They can best be described as blending fresh-faced Pop/Rock with Modern Country Stylings fresh from Nashville.
The band have just released their 2nd album “Moving On” to great critical acclaim including positive reviews and features with the likes of Guitarist Magazine, Country Music Magazine, Hotpress Magazine, Maverick, No Depression, The Arts Desk, Yorkshire Times and many more.
The album was recorded between the band’s native Belfast and Nashville (TN) and features musicians such as Chris Brush and Tommy Detamore on Pedal Steel Guitar.
First single from the album “Rebound” achieved success when it was given a world premiere by US based Country Music Bible ‘The Boot’. BBC Introducing also named it song of the week on the week of is release.
Since the beginning the band’s music has also enjoyed heavy radio play and play listing globally, including USA, UK, Europe, Ireland and beyond. Including good support on UK National radio including extensive radio play on the likes of BBC Radio 2, BBC London etc including support and sessions with the likes of Graham Norton, Gaby Roslin and Alex Lester.
The band have also toured extensively, from headline tours, festivals through to touring with Ward Thomas, The Shires and Jess & The Bandits.The band have also been privileged to perform at the UK's leading Country Festival, Country 2 Country Festival at London’s O2 on two consecutive years.
“Moving On is Country Pop/Rock with Chantelle McAteer’s vocals supported by Logan’s jangly rhythm and strong lead guitar. Hook-laden songs with singalong choruses” - 8/10 - Guitarist Magazine
“Amazing” - Gaby Roslin (BBC Radio London)
“A glorious amalgamation of Rock, Country and Folk' - Jim Gellatly (XFM/Amazing Radio)
When it comes to country-tinged pop-rock songs, there are very few who do it with as much style as Belfast’s The Rising right now. The kind of song which could dent the charts and hearts of the states given the right breaks, fans of the likes of Lady Antebellum and early Taylor Swift will lap this up” - Edwin McFee, Hotpress Magazine
“If your after big songs with big choruses then you could do little better' - R2 Magazine
“Choruses and tunes which aim for anthem status.. The Rising are definitely a band to watch.” - Golden Plec
