1378024_566716346741788_217672759_n

Genre(s): Ambient/Progressive/Melodic Deathcore
Location: Manasota

PSAB: Where did the name”Upon Our Rise” come from

exactly?


UOR: I believe our
guitarist Luke came up with

it. It’s been so long I can

barely remember.


PSAB: Your EP The Humanity Defect is
set to release July 15th.

What can we expect from

this upcoming EP?


UOR: The best way to describe it
I would say is a little bit

of everything, We all highly

appreciate all forms of

metal so we try to

incorporate that into our

songwriting.


PSAB: You’re currently
unsigned, if you could be

signed to any record label,

which label would that be

and why?


UOR: Metalblade. They
just seem to have a great

working relationship with the

bands they have, plus so

many of the bands we love

are on that label.


PSAB: What is the local metal
scene like in that area?


UOR: There are a lot of talented
people here, unfortunately

so many of the bands split

up before they can get

anywhere with it. I have

seen so many great bands

come and go. I also see a

lot of good hearted people

getting somewhere and

persevering and that is

fucking awesome.


PSAB: Which bands play the
most influence on your

music?


UOR: For me personally I
would say.. Deftones, The

Faceless, The Contortionist,

again, Wretched, The Last

Ten Seconds of Life,

Abiotic, Whitechapel, and Aegeaon.


PSAB: Do you have any shout
outs to give to your fans?


UOR: EVERYONE. All the friends
who came to hang out with

us at shows, bought our

shirts, came up to meet us

after our set. The dudes

who offered to let us

practice in their homes, the

people who host these

shows and go through all

the stress to give everyone

nights they’ll never forget.

Most of all though, I think

we would like to thank the

dude who helped haul our

equipment to probably 90%

of the shows in the past,

Cody Wimmer.
