THE POWERLESS RISE marks the follow-up to the band's critically acclaimed fourth album An Ocean Between Us (Metal Blade) which debuted at #8 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Rock Chart, earning the group a Grammy nomination for "Best Metal Performance" alongside metal heavyweights Slayer and King Diamond. For the new album, the group re-teamed with producer Adam Dutkiewicz of Killswitch Engage and mixer Colin Richardson who they'd previously worked with on An Ocean Between Us.

Fans will get a taste of the new album when the San Diego-based group--whose last four albums have sold more than 1.3 million copies--performs live next week on the Revolver Golden Gods Awards, which tapes Thursday, April 8 at Club Nokia in Los Angeles and will air May 22 on Vh1 Classic.
