Rise   Rise

After almost 3 years in the making, the new CD, Stand The Line, from the Catholic band RISE is scheduled to hit stores on February 1, 2006.


We recently had the exclusive opportunity to sample 3 songs from the new CD and the guys have definitely found their sound! With the addition of new drummer Mike Partain, the guys, Steve Rogers (lead singer, writer) Mike Beloud (guitar) and Jorge Ramirez (bass) have completed songs that can be described in one word, REAL!

From the song “Maybe Someday”, a true Rock n’ Praise tune, to the Acoustic heartfelt song “Half Way”, the guys have definitely been touched by the Holy Spirit in creating music that will be loved by teens as well as adults.


RISE has also added a new level to Christian music with a song called “Cancers Creation.” We have never heard a song like this in Christian or secular music. Steve Rogers bravely opens his soul and writes about his experience with cancer and the guys presentation of this song will have you by your heart strings.

The new CD is true to Rise’s Rock n’ Roll roots, from the sound and feel of Bon Jovi to the writing and harmonies of the Eagles. Stand The Line is a CD for those who miss the genuine sound of a classic Rock band blended with a strong love and devotion for our Lord. These guys have nailed it! In the words of the Righteous Brothers; “If there’s a Rock n’ Roll heaven, you can bet RISE will be headlining!

What do you get when you mix a bunch of 80’s rockers, only now they are a Police Officer, the president and CEO of an international tech company, a sales manager for an industrial materials manufacturer and a general contractor? and the only thing these four individuals had in common was music and Jesus Christ!YOU GET RISE!
