Sussex born alternative rock quartet CITY OF ASHES are pleased to reveal the details of their eagerly anticipated second studio album Rise, released on the 25th March 2016. New single “Battles Of My Youth”, has been championed by Kerrang Radio‘s Alex Baker, with the video premiering on the Ticketmaster blog last week.
The band’s debut album saw them play over 180 shows all over the country, including a tour with US giants Trapt. For fans of 30 Seconds To Mars and The Rasmus, Rise tells a story like no other and incorporates beautiful vocal tones and melodic guitars to entice its listener from beginning to end.
After the success of their debut album and single release ‘Masks’, which calculated almost 40,000 views on YouTube, CITY OF ASHES are thrilled to finally speak about their new material; “This new record pushes story telling in so many new ways for us. The bright points of this record shine in a whole new light but the darks are so much more intense too. I think it’s going to challenge our audience but I think they’ll enjoy it.” reveals vocalist Orion Powell.
