Villa Rise Bio:
“The inability to express ones self, and the overwhelming desire to be able to do so, is essentially at the core of all of this. If we could honestly tear our hearts and souls from their vessels and hang them on display, to explain to you all that this is necessary, to justify all of this longing, we would. This however, is as close as we have, and perhaps will ever come.”
Villa Rise is a band in a state of constant and cohesive turmoil. They are as honest a reflection of an inexplicable unrest that could possibly constructed by the five flawed individuals who form its ranks.
It is not a matter of wanting to show you all anymore… it is an inability to sit still and to stay quiet.
The Sydney based band have been touring the county relentlessly since releasing their sophmore EP "Wastelands" in late 2011. Amid a haze of darkness and anxiety Villa Rise cling only to the message that happiness is a state of mind, and if you can accept that, it is within your control.
2012 hails an exciting new chapter in the lives of these 5 former Sydney siders, who have embarked on a journey to the United Kingdom to hone their skills and apply their brand of honest and energetic Hardcore Punk.
