The official “lyric video” for “City Of Vultures”, the title track of the debut album from RISE TO REMAIN — the up-and-coming London, England metalcore outfit featuring singer Austin Dickinson, the son of IRON MAIDEN frontman Bruce Dickinson— can be seen below.
“City Of Vultures” has had its North American release date pushed back to January 24, 2012 from the previously announced October 11 (via Century Media Records).
One of the most exciting new heavy metal acts to come out of the U.K. in quite some time, RISE TO REMAIN has been a trending topic overseas for the past year. Named both the “Best New Band” at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards and the “Best British Newcomer” at the Kerrang! Awards, RISE TO REMAIN has high aspirations for the new album.
“I hope a lot of people will respect this record, especially coming from a really young band, because there’s a lot that’s outside the usual metalcore cliché thinking box,” says Dickinson.
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. The band will head stateside for a U.S. tour this fall around the release of “City Of Vultures” and will back again in early 2012 to continue bringing its own brand of technical metalcore to American audiences.
