RYSE are a small, three piece Alternative Rock band with a massive sound.
Formed in the heart of Guildford, the band's ambitious take on riff heavy music flirts with modern progressive rock and anthemic choruses. Compared to the twisted child of Biffy Clyro and Rage Against the Machine, raised on a diet of Nirvana-like angst and Radiohead-esque melodies, RYSE take glorious rock and roll back to a mainstream audience.
With lyrics fuelled from obsessions with the darker side of modern technology, the class divide and spiritual existence, they write from the heart and head directly to their fans.
Ricky Cooksie: Lead Vocals, Guitars & Keyboards
Jake Duncan:Drums, Percussion & Backing Vocals
Chris Jones: Bass Guitars & Backing Vocals
RYSE have just released their 3 track EP with songs titled, Angels/Demons , My Kind of Apocalypse , Space Cowboys.
The lads have come up with a AWESOME EP and you can hear their influences in the music.
Space Cowboys has to be our favourite song but all the tracks are something special!
We hope to hear back from the lads of RYSE and see what the future holds!
