AND PRE-ORDER RISE: ASCENSION
(Lodi, CA) – A Skylit Drive has released another track from their upcoming album Rise: Ascension. The song “Rise” is streaming on the Tragic Hero Records youtube page and was the title track from their 2013 breakthrough record that they’ve re-visited and will release on 1/06/15 as an acoustic album.
David McKenna of Revolver Magazine gave Rise: Ascension 4/5 stars and said “The result is an oddly satisfying reinterpretation of what was already a solid record.” and that “A Skylit Drive even manage to breathe new life into Rise’s heavier cuts.”
For the new record, the band enlisted platinum producer Jim Wirt (Incubus, Something Corporate, The Rocket Summer) who worked with the band on the pre-production of Rise. They didn’t simply plug in acoustic guitars and record coffee shop versions of the songs however; they instead re-worked the pieces into standalone compositions featuring piano, cello, bass, and other assorted instruments.
In promotion with the new record, A Skylit Drive has released a brand new line of merch available exclusively through the Tragic Hero Records online store.
