Coming straight out of New York's legendary hardcore scene, On The Rise has stepped out of the shadows, and into the limelight as one of New York Hardcore's premier bands. Gaining popularity since day one, this Long Island based quintet have only just begun their mission: to re-write hardcore history. Resting on the strength and integrity of their songwriting, as well as their explosive live performances, On The Rise has gained the support, admiration and respect of both devout hardcore listeners, and established, touring hardcore bands.

On The Rise played an energetic, in-your-face style of hardcore since 1997. While the line up of hardcore devotes who perform in On The Rise were never involved in any serious preceeding projects, a couple have gone on to join Agnostic Front (Mike - Bass), and Maximum Penalty (Steve - Drums).
