GET STOKED because #iRise is a fiery banger with a nasty attitude by #ShreditorInChief, Timothy Martuch (ASCAP). There's something of a story behind what this song is about, if you're interested, maybe the #Shreditor can put together a video about it.
Now for some history:: This song began on November 28th of 2016, as a riff that Tim presented to a bandmate in The Runarounds. It was originally intended to be written as something of any anthem and was aptly named by the bandmate "F*** Yeah."
Because the content presented by the former bandmate didn't particularly resonate with the riff's composer, Tim decided he'd keep the riff from the unfinished song when The Runarounds stopped working together on new music.
Fast forward nearly 3 years, to November 16th, 2019. This is when Tim began work on the song as it exists today. This process was more passive than most of Tim's work. Periodically adding to the instrumental. By the time the lyrics were started, on February of 2020, the instrumental has been finished for about a month. more
