Rise to Remain Split with Bassist and Drummer, Cancel U.S. Tour, Postpone U.S. Album Release

Rise to Remain—featuring vocalist Austin Dickinson, son of Iron Maiden frontman Bruce—have announced that they have parted ways with their bassist, Joe Copcutt, and drummer Pat Lundy.

As a result of the lineup changes, the band has cancelled their planned upcoming dates in the U.S. supporting Machine Head. The band has also postponed the U.S. release of their debut album, City of Vultures, until June 5, when it plans on coming to American shores for a soon to be announced tour. The U.S. release of the album will feature exclusive new bonus material to be recorded in the coming months.

Replacements for the now-departed members will be announced in due course.
