OB: You guys have recently had a line up change. Having Jason (vocals) in the band now, how has the music changed?
Rising Up Angry (Chris Williams): The Music hasn’t changed much at all, Jason just made it better, its much more sing able now .
OB: How difficult was it to find an accomplished singer, and what were some of the tips you could give to make the challenge easier on other bands looking for new members?
Rising Up Angry: well for us it hasn’t been easy just ask anyone that has been following the band we have been through a few singers
over the years .We put a post out on myspace and had over 60 replys from all over the world. We decided on Jason for many reasons . He has the Voice ,the look ,The Stage Presents and the will to go all the way with out any excuses. Its been real hard to find some one that has all that in one guy. But were real happy we can get the show back on the road again .
