We are extremely excited to get back across to mainland UK to showcase
our new album “Moving On” as a full band. Its been a little while from
our previous UK Tour so can’t wait to get back and showcase our new
music but also the full band. We have done a lot of shows stripped back
and acoustic due to budget restrictions on touring as an independent
band. So it will be exciting for us to play as a full band.
We are also excited to announce that the tour aims to showcase other
talent on the UK scene. We are keen to stress that we aren’t the biggest
fan of the term ‘headline’ or ‘support’. So, on this tour we will be
presenting and showcasing three acts each night. These acts may or may
not be in the same genre as ourselves, we just want to showcase new
music. More details will be released about these acts over the coming
The Rising can best be described as blending fresh-faced Pop/Rock with
Modern Country Stylings fresh from Nashville. The band have just

Magazine, Country Music Magazine, Hotpress Magazine, No Depression, The
