Young Rising Sons Release New Single “Whiskey”

At first glance, Young Rising Sons may seem to be just another Jersey band, raised on Bruce in the ‘Land of Hope and Dreams’. Perhaps, at some point, that’s exactly what they were, but Young Rising Sons has grown into a family, with its foundation rooted in resilience.

On a moody fall day in the East Village, bassist Julian Dimagiba & drummer Steve Patrick stumbled into a dive bar and caught Andy Tongren performing an acoustic set. The two realized that Tongren, an Ohio-born singer, songwriter, and guitarist, was what their band needed. They had instant chemistry, and the newly formed Sons threw themselves at the NYC and NJ circuits.  After beginning to develop a humble, yet loyal fanbase they met producers Shep Goodman & Aaron Accetta.

In 2014 Young Rising Sons signed with Goodman & Accettas’ production company, Dirty Canvas Music, and released ‘High”. It garnered the attention of fans and industry executives alike. The band ultimately signed with Interscope Records and released their self-titled EP shortly after. Following their signing, Young Rising Sons played to the world through placements in Toyota, Pepsi & Hulu commercials, trailers – like Universal Picture’s “A Dog’s Purpose,” the Guitar Hero video game, and ESPN broadcasts of NCAA Football.

They have performed across the US, Canada, and the U.K. with the likes of Halsey, The 1975, & The Neighbourhood.  From 200-cap shows at Bowery Electric, to a field of 20,000 at Firefly, the Sons fans have grown with the band. After a short hiatus, YoungRising Sons makes their long awaited return with ‘+WHISKEY-‘ in hand.
