Total Uprawr conducted an interview with RISE TO REMAIN, the London, England metalcore outfit fronted by Austin Dickinson — the son of IRON MAIDEN singer Bruce Dickinson — on March 15 at the Takedown festival in Southampton. You can now watch the chat below.RISE TO REMAIN recently made available a free download of the band's brand new single, "Over And Over".
A ferocious, take-no-prisoners blast of coruscating metal, the track was debuted to an ecstatic reception on the Main Stage at Download festival last year, with the singalong chorus proving an instant hit. Now revealed in its full majesty, "Over And Over" encompasses everything fans have ever loved about RISE TO REMAIN; insanely skillful guitar solos, pummeling rhythms, epic vocals that veer between brutal roars and tuneful intensity, and a melodic hook that reaches into your skull and tears your brain to pieces.
Says Austin Dickinson: "For our first track in a while, we wanted to redress exactly what RISE are about. Musically, it's fucking heavy, melodic and shreddy as hell, and lyrically it's about the ongoing cycle of battling to remain yourself. "For a band that is growing and growing, and a fan base that is full of diverse individuals, I think this speaks to all of us. "I'm so excited to share it with everybody; this is simply a taster of what is to come from us in 2014. Prepare yourself, Risers."
The follow-up to the band's acclaimed 2011 debut, "City Of Vultures", RISE TO REMAIN's second album will see the band take their next great leap forward, transforming themselves from British metal's new heroes into a world-class force to be reckoned with.
"Over And Over" is available right now as a free download on www.risetoremain.com.
