The Rising’s Star Continues to Rise

The Rising C2C

Friends of Essentially Pop, The Rising, will be performing at this year’s C2C, in London’s O2. To celebrate this fantastic news we’ll bring back the song that started it all for us, ‘Calling You’.

The Rising - Calling You (Lyric Video)

When we last spoke to the band back in October, they said that their plans for 2016 included a new album. In the meantime their debut album, ‘Coming Home’, is available to buy from Amazon, 7 Digital, Google Play, and iTunes. You can also stream it via Deezer and Spotify.

If you’re not yet familiar with The Rising, you can see our articles about them here. We’ll keep you up to date with more information about their performance as information comes to hand. You can find The Rising online on their official homepage, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
