Former Cinderella frontman and powerhouse vocalist, Tom Keifer, ascends to new heights on his second solo album, Rise! This collection of 11 brand new songs rock with a fury and passion that is sure to make critics and fans take notice! Two brand new concept videos for the standout single "The Death Of Me" and the uplifing title track "Rise" directed by Vicente Cordero and assistant directed by Alisa Daglio of Industrialism Films! Also features the moving ballad "You Believe In Me" written by Tom for his wife Savannah!

The common thread to each song on Rise is the intuitive interplay between each member of #keiferband (Savannah Keifer, Tony Higbee, Billy Mercer, Kendra Chantelle, Jarred Pope, Kory Myers), a tight but loose collective that’s spent the last six-plus years on the road honing their live craft together in support of Keifer’s critically acclaimed 2013 solo debut, The Way Life Goes. Rise is the studio-bred equivalent of a band just now realizing the full scope of its powers. “We were trying to capture the feeling of what people have witnessed live with this band,” Keifer explains. “There’s an off-the-rails, real live feel to Rise — and that’s what we were going for. It shows a real kind of angst and reckless abandon that we tried not to polish too much. And when we pull it back on the ballads, it’s more about the emotion, the soul, and making people feel something in a different way.”

“When this band came together, we all felt a bit like broken souls, each with our own unique story,” he explains. “If you ask anyone in the band, they would all say this band came along at just the right time. Every human who walks this planet faces challenges and extreme adversity they have to overcome. As a band, we feel fortunate to be able to face those things together. There is a piece of every band member in the ‘The Death of Me’ as well as throughout the entire Rise album.”

“We were trying to capture the feeling of what people have witnessed live with this band,” Keifer explains of the new album. “There’s an off-the-rails, real live feel to Rise — and that’s what we were going for. It shows a real kind of angst and reckless abandon that we tried not to polish too much. And when we pull it back on the ballads, it’s more about the emotion, the soul, and making people feel something in a different way.”

He continues, “To me, the perfect rock and roll record is perfectly fucked up. You try to make each record interesting and different. I don’t ever want to make the same record twice, even though there’s a common thread between them. Everything doesn’t have to be perfectly in place, but there is a balance you try to strike. Sometimes there may be something about it that’s technically not ‘right,’ but there’s a vibe, an energy and an attitude to it that I always try to preserve.”
