Saliva are gearing up to release their new album Rise Up and have teamed with Rock Confidential to premiere their new lyric video for the song of the same name.
New vocalist Bobby Amaru has joined longtime members Wayne Swinny, Dave Novotny and Paul Crosby to deliver an album full of anthemic choruses and crushing guitar riffs – everything you’d expect from Saliva.
The artwork for the “Rise Up” single features a raised fist – a perfect visual for the attitude and swagger from the newly revitalized group. “‘Rise Up’ … it’s a statement on where we’re at,” adds Swinny. “The title just has that fire to it.”
Despite being the newest member in the band, Amaru wants to prove why Saliva is as vital now as they were in 2001. “We’ve just gone back to the basics. You know, being a rock band.”
Rise Up is due April 29 through new indie label Rum Bum Records. As a new chapter in the Saliva story unfolds, the band is promising lots of touring in 2014, including international dates. For an updated itinerary, please visit this location.
