Multi-platinum hard rock icons Extreme’s latest single “Rise” has seen unprecedented success following its debut on March 1 alongside a fiery music video which has received over 2 million views to date. The critically acclaimed track, from their new album “Six” out June 9 via earMUSIC, has earned praise from international top tier media outlets including Consequence, Classic Rock, Music Radar and Guitar World in addition to accolades from such fellow musical peers as Brian May and radio personality Howard Stern while peaking at #3 on the Classic Rock charts.
The band—Gary Cherone (vocals), Nuno Bettencourt (guitar), Pat Badger (bass), and Kevin Figueiredo (drums)—have today (April 19) shared two new singles along with dazzling videos to accompany each: “Banshee” and “#Rebel.”
“BANSHEE” is a seductive classic hard rock tune with a chugging rhythm section, playful guitar wizardry and electrifying vocals that testify to the power and inspiration of the female form and spirit.
“#REBEL” takes on scathing so-called keyboard warriors with its head-nodding beat and searing dive bomb lead guitar runs serving up the harder edges of EXTREME’s sound. “We’re calling out those trolls who can’t back up their words,” explains Cherone.
