Produced by TOM KEIFER, Savannah Keifer, and Kyle O’Connor, RISE scales renewed sonic heights. From the tasty slide work that stamps “Touching the Divine,” the nontraditionally arranged, heavy, dark jam of “Untitled,” the breakneck thrust of “All Amped Up” to the tender coda of “You Believe in Me,” RISE signifies the ongoing evolution of the former Cinderella frontman as a person, songwriter, and bandleader. It’s the aural portrait of an artist who, to borrow a phrase, is still climbing
RISE was recently praised by KNAC.com as “…a return to form for KEIFER and company. RISE features a cross section of tunes that cull inspiration from NIGHT SONGS and LONG COLD WINTER with a potent, modern age punch that will please diehard and casual fans alike. There’s riffs a plenty, gritty, powerful vocals, and well-crafted ballads, making for a well-balanced listening experience…On RISE KEIFER is showing the kids and his contemporaries how it’s done. Well done KEIFER BAND. 5.0 Out Of 5.0” While Ink19.com hailed, ““In sum, with RISE, TOM KEIFER succeeds in proving (once again) to be an artist who knows no creative boundaries and remains in a league of his own.”
Three videos have been released from the new album: “The Death Of Me” (written by KEIFER and his wife Savannah, and directed by Vicente Cordero), a lyric video for “Touching The Divine” (written by TOM and Savannah KEIFER, and Kendra Chantelle) and “Rise,” the title track (written by TOM KEIFER, Savannah Keifer with Keifer and Shawna Thompson of Thompson Square and directed by Vicente Cordero).
