"The Rising Sound"

For you soccer fans, this band truly loves the sport... who better to bring you the MLS Saturday on FSC theme song, Get In The Game! (Get the Song.) Taylor dreams up lyrics like "You wanna play me, well I'll play you right back / You think you know my game, my game is tighter than that!" Tom lays down a mean driving bass line like a player breaking through the defense. Kevin is a walking encyclopedia of the sport, and has been known to throw down a challenge on the field, not to mention the fact that his soaring guitars ring out "victory"!

But Get In The Game! is much more than just a sports theme. "We didn't just want to write a sports song," says lead singer Taylor Martyr. "The song's saying to you, 'Get in the game of life.'"

The song's producers, Nat Schellin and Chris Martin, agree. Nat and Chris are also heads of the band's record label, Jaggo Records, and the band's first album under the label is in production now. "We went into this project with the goal of producing songs that would make the final cut for the album, and this is one of those," says Nat. "The band recorded a really rocking track, and it's going to bring more fans to The Rising Sound AND to the game of soccer. Besides, America needs a soccer song... The Rising Sound totally delivers!"

The Rising Sound is a three-piece band that has just taken an interesting twist from electronica to alternative music. After being together for 10 years, the guys have harnessed a raw alternative sound that just about every musician can respect. They’re putting out a debut EP with this new sound very soon that promises to be amazing based on the tracks we’ve received. You can find more information about The Rising Sound on their Myspace page,

Rachael also sent me two MP3s to listen to and I was extremely impressed. The music was upbeat and different and the vocals were a lot of fun. Check them out!

Imagine if all your favorite bands, spanning genres from 90s rock to new wave to electronica, came together to create music. Thanks to California’s hottest emerging band, The Rising Sound, you can stop wondering and start listening. Few bands can reminisce about the great acts of the past without getting caught in their sound, but The Rising Sound recreates their roots in the truest sense of the word. Styling sounds from The Chemical Brothers and Duran Duran alike and adding Jet-like edge with a twinge of Bowie, the band has embarked on an ambitious journey into new sonic territory.
Their self-released debut EP entitled "Lights Out // In Space," seamlessly combines edgy rock riffs, futuristic electronic elements and soaring melodies to create a signature sound that is uniquely their own. The fluid yet poignant lyrics tie together the energetic guitars, bass, and drums with a resounding catchiness. Every song feels like an old friend, with a familiar sound yet an entirely new twist that makes a first-time listener stop with fresh curiosity and vague recognition to ask, “Who is this?”

A few years ago the answer would have been, “IOS,” the well-known three-piece electronica/dance band who played in front of over 100,000 people at the San Francisco Love Parade. IOS was composed of frontman Taylor Martyr, guitarist Kevin Holt, and bassist Tom Benzian, who grew up together in San Francisco. After absorbing the city’s vibrant nightlife culture and playing to the masses, the trio moved south to Los Angeles in 2006, where they added drummer Reade Pryor to the mix and their sound took on a rock and roll edge. They changed their name to reflect their zealous musical growth, and The Rising Sound was born.

With their EP newly released, The Rising Sound is finishing up the year with a Fall/Winter tour, with official dates along the West Coast to be announced. Their live performance is loaded with contagious energy, passionate playing and is always a party! In the meantime, you can get "Lights Out // In Space" on iTunes and all major download sites.
