"Seventh Rize Brings Rock BACK!!!"

To Whom It Concerns:

Seventh Rize has brought Rock and Roll back to the forefront as a viable genre. These boys have mastered their craft in the art of Rock and Roll. A recent show in Bandera, Texas , the Cowboy Capital of the World, proved that. They had cowboy hat-clad good ole boys shaking in their boots, and in their jeans, while they enjoyed the best new REAL rock band playing today.

"Seventh Rize...A True Rock Band!!"

To whom it may concern:

Let me start by saying one of the dreams of my life has finally come true. Touring with a TRUE ROCK BAND! Spending the week with Seventh Rize on their Brothers in Arms tour was fabulous. The band was very professional, hard working and well mannered.

Seventh Rize really knows how to get the crowd out of their seats. It was amazing to see the people react as they did.

Seventh Rize works as hard as they perform.

The music is the best music I have ever heard.

I know that Seventh Rize is going to go far in the music business. If I had to sum up the tour in one word I would have to say “SUPERB”.

From the back bone drive of drummer “Sulli”, to the tearing riffs of guitarist Jerry Stone, to the bass thumping of bass player David Hamilton and the smooth, supreme vocals of lead vocalist Stacy Humphries makes SEVETH RIZE “THE BEST DAMN ROCK BAND IN YEARS”...

"...One of the hardest working bands in the land!"

To Whom It Concerns:

Seventh Rize is one of the hardest working bands I’ve ever worked with in my 18 years of having a Record Label. I work with bands from all over the world and I wish every band worked as hard as Seventh Rize. The band has a incredible live show and captures what Rock and Roll is all about. Their songs are straight forward and fans can relate to every story told in their songs.

I can honestly state that Seventh Rize WILL satisfy!

Bio

Seventh Rize was formed in the Fall of 1991 and hails from the rural oil fields of West Texas. Previous experience and dedication, along with extensive rehearsal led Seventh Rize to take the club circuit by storm! Averaging over 200 shows per year, Seventh Rize headlined in clubs and festivals, opened numerous major concerts and was a featured artist on several regional radio stations and publications.

In the Fall of 1995, with bigger goals in mind, Seventh Rize made a collective decision to begin seriously writing original music and so constructed their own studio, Dean O’s Studio, to self-produce their original music. In 1999, as fate would have it, legendary drummer/producer/author Bobby Rock (Nelson, Vinnie Vincent Invasion, Hardline) heard the music and offered the band a production deal to produce the debut Seventh Rize album!

With excitement and anticipation in the air, the band was flown to Los Angeles to begin recording basic tracks at Studio 14731 which is owned and operated by Bruce Bouillet, guitarist for legendary metal band Racer X and The Scream. With additional help from Bob Kulick, Seventh Rize began the task of recording “Visceral Rock”. While in Los Angeles, the band was honored to have both Brett Garsed (Nelson) and Neil Zaza come down to the studio and contribute some amazing guitar solos and slide work! Back in Texas, at Dean O’s Studio, powerful vocals were performed by Henry Font (Pist.On) and Bobby Rock laid down some serious percussion tracks to spice things up. Needless to say, the groove for “Visceral Rock” was set! The final mixing was completed by Bruce Bouillet at Jake’s Place in Sherman Oaks, CA with mastering by Marty Blasick at Motion City in Los Angeles, CA.

The band and crew released “Visceral Rock” to the masses in August of 2000 with praise from hard rock fans and critics alike! Reviewers agree that “Visceral Rock” is nothing short of a “No Nonsense”, “Solid”, “100% Pure Rock-n-Roll” record! Shortly after the release, Seventh Rize signed an infamous “Indie Deal Gone Bad” which put the band on an extended vacation!

In the Fall of 2006, founding member Sulli and long-time vocalist Stacy "The Big Daddy" Humphries decided to make the commitment in bringing Seventh Rize back to the scene! The group re-released “Visceral Rock”, on May 18, 2007 and began performing shows with the likes of Warrant, Firehouse and White Lion…not to mention several headlining events, including a Vh1 Special, along with numerous in-store appearances. Seventh Rize also appeared at Rocklahoma ‘08! Seventh Rize also scored national endorsements with Sonor Drums, Aquarian Drumheads, Ahead Drumsticks, Sabian Cymbals and Peavey Electronics!

Successfully re-established, Seventh Rize began the next logical step…writing new material. The core writing sessions went extremely well and the band decided to bring back Bobby Rock to produce the new album, “Full Moon”. The entire recording/mixing/mastering process for “Full Moon” was spread between Texas and Los Angeles. Initial responses on the new album can be summed up in one word, “Intense”! For the first time in the bands’ career, Seventh Rize worked with an outside writer, namely Bruce Turgon from “FOREIGNER”. A chemistry which proved successful with their Vh1 single "To Love Rodeo, To Win Rodeo"! The band worked night and day on “Full Moon” to live up to its motto, “Let The Music Do The Talking”.

Once “Full Moon” was complete, Seventh Rize began searching for the “right” label to promote it. The band was set on finding a label that shared their vision and truly lived for rock-n-roll music! They found these qualities in Perris Records and signed with the label in April 2009. The first single, also the title track, will hit airwaves soon and “Full Moon” is set for a nation-wide release on July 14, 2009!

In support of "Full Moon", Seventh Rize hit arena stages and delivered their brand of kick ass arena rock across Texas as direct support for the legendary Lou Gramm of Foreigner in addition to a club tour with Jackly! The band is currently in pre-production for their next album, Seventh Rize III!!
