Official press release: Century Media Records is proud to announce the release of Rise To Remain's debut album, City of Vultures on October 11th. One of the most exciting new heavy metal acts to come out of the UK in quite some time, the band has been a trending topic overseas for the past year. Named both the Best New Band at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards and the Best British Newcomer at the Kerrang! Awards, Rise To Remain has high aspirations for the new album. "I hope a lot of people will respect this record, especially coming from a really young band, because there's a lot that's outside the usual metalcore cliché thinking box," says vocalist Austin Dickinson. Produced by renowned metal producer Colin Richardson (Slipknot, As I Lay Dying), City of Vultures delivers twelve electrifying tracks that will leave all hard music fans pleased. Metal Hammer Magazine describes the band as a "tight and well-oiled machine, blending elements of thrash and metalcore in an impressively proficient and undeniably catchy manner." City of Vultures is an explosive, assured and extraordinarily diverse first offering that marks Rise To Remain as an extremely talented standard bearer for a new generation of metal bands. Rise To Remain is no stranger to the road having toured throughout Europe with Iron Maiden, Bring Me The Horizon, Bullet For My Valentine and other notable acts, along with having played career-defining, blistering sets at this year's Download and Sonisphere Festivals. The band will be heading stateside for a US tour this fall around the release of City of Vultures and will back again in early 2012 to continue bringing their own brand of technical metalcore to American audiences.
