RISE TO REMAIN — the up-and-coming London, England metalcore outfit featuring singer Austin Dickinson, the son of IRON MAIDEN frontman Bruce Dickinson — has parted ways with bassist Joe Copcutt and drummer Pat Lundy. As a result, the band has been forced to cancel its previously announced U.S. shows as the support act for MACHINE HEAD.RISE TO REMAIN's critically acclaimed debut album, "City Of Vultures", will now be released in the U.S. on June 5 to coincide with RISE TO REMAIN's extensive soon-to-be-announced North American tour. The American version of the CD will also feature exclusive new material recorded in the coming months. RISE TO REMAIN will head back out on the road in Europe in March as part of a headlining tour, with support from German metallers HEAVEN SHALL BURN. Helmed by renowned metal producer Colin Richardson (SLIPKNOT, AS I LAY DYING), "City Of Vultures" delivers twelve electrifying tracks that will leave all hard music fans pleased. The CD is described in a press release as "an explosive, assured and extraordinarily diverse first offering that marks RISE TO REMAIN as an extremely talented standard bearer for a new generation of metal bands."
RISE TO REMAIN is no stranger to the road, having toured throughout Europe with IRON MAIDEN, BRING ME THE HORIZON, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE and other notable acts, along with having played career-defining, blistering sets at this year's Download and Sonisphere festivals.
