A Skylit Drive have announced that their new album Rise will be released by Tragic Hero Records on October 7th, 2013. The band worked with several notable producers including Cameron Mizell (Sleeping with Sirens, Memphis May Fire), Kit Walters ( Letlive, He Is Legend, Alesana), Mitch Marlow (Filter, In This Moment) and Jim Wirt (Incubus, Something Corporate, The Rocket Summer). "I thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent in Cleveland with producer Jim Wirt," says vocalist Michael "Jag" Jagmin. "It's a nice change of pace writing with someone outside of the band. We're used to writing our albums completely secluded locked away in a practice spot somewhere. Including someone as knowledgeable as Jim into the mix has been a great benefit for us."A SKYLIT DRIVE will be embarking on the Rise Up Tour in support of the album with For All Those Sleeping, I The Mighty, Wolves at the Gate, and PVRIS (Paris).
The band will tour the US through September and October, then heading to Australia for November. A UK headline 2013 run will be announced in the coming weeks.
