Red Carpet Interview
2011 Nominee – Rock Artist of the Year – 21st Annual LA Music Awards
fascinating singer/songwriter/author MATTHEW ROBERTS and his band NEW RISING SON. And their Number One internet Searched story over Thanksgiving weekend… achieving massive exposure domestically with a four page interview in the November 30, 2009 IN TOUCH WEEKLY, front page of the New York Post, Perez Hilton.com, and the British Sun. Look for New Rising Son Details Magazine and any number of TV show appearances and documentaries.
Epic thought-provoking mood rock vaguely reminiscent of Nine Inch Nails and Depeche Mode, but without the smug ennui and the dissociated post-teen angst sense of entitlement. what sets New Rising Son apart from the universal mind stream are the complexity of lyrics, their complicated deep philosophical intent and the poignant and surreal way in which they are delivered. Backed by veteran guitarist Quinn Moore, rock solid bassist John Eckert and powerhouse drummer Brant Maze, and armed with an arsenal of songs like the subtle seductive “Holy Ground”, driving “Rain” and the spooky “Never Ending Dream”. Most recently, “Holy Ground” and “Rain” are now available in the Rock Band Network store, devolped for Xbox-Rock Band! Read Matthew Robert’s 2000 autobiography “The First Rays Of The New Rising Son” available at Newrisingson.
