Forming in the Fall of 2006, I Rise has already made an impact in their hometown of Worcester, MA. Featuring ex-members of Youth Attack, I Rise blends elements of Burn, Quicksand, and Rage Against the Machine with themes such as religion and personal politics. Recently, they've added Chris Berg, formerly of Verse, as well as Jesse and Pat who were in Last Lights.
I Rise now has 3 releases under their belts, a 7" entitled Down on 1917n early Spring, a split with Rhode Island's Soul Control, as well as a full-length on 1917, ...for Redemption.
On the touring front, I Rise has gone out with Bane, 108, Have Heart, Verse, Down To Nothing, and Soul Control in the past, and are already planning on getting back on the road this Fall. Stay tuned!
