New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Dallas, TX based Nu-Metal Band Phoenix Rising has released the Official Music Video for their newest single "Lights Out," off of their upcoming debut LP, From the Ashes. A love letter to UFC and ESports, this high energy music video follows a day in the life of an MMA fighter and ESports Street Fighter 5 gamer as they get ready for their respective tournament matches.
"The newest single from PHOENIX RISING, "LIGHTS OUT" is one of the most aggressive songs in our repertoire. This is an anthem for those people who are constantly getting kicked down by life and the ongoing struggles that never seem to cease. We will never be beaten! 'You think its an easy win, I am a phoenix and I just rise again.'

For the video, we decided to make it a love letter to UFC and Esports since everyone in the band enjoys MMA matches and competitive video games. We wanted a high energy music video that shows a day in the life of a MMA fighter and Esports Street Fighter 5 gamer in parallel as they get ready for their respective tournament matches.

The two fighters awaken with purpose and the video instantly delves into their day. The fighters train, practice combinations, and go to the tournament all culminating in the final knockout against their nemesis.
The video showcases PHOENIX RISING not only performing in the octagon ring, we wanted each member to have a cameo in the video as well!

'LIGHTS OUT' has a ton of attitude and is built to get the blood pumping with driving beats combined with aggressive riffs. With lyrics like "Step inside the ring I'm ready to go", we wanted "LIGHTS OUT" to give you the motivational energy to get up and fight for what you want out of life." -

PHOENIX RISING, based out of Dallas, Texas, came together in 2017 in the most unlikely of places: a Craigslist ad posted by Vocalist Kent Summerour in search of like-minded musicians who not only wanted to make music with substance, but who wanted to create a live spectacle like nothing else in the local music scene. After a short search and a lot of luck, the ad was answered by five seasoned musicians one of whom was Australian. Comprised of a second vocalist, guitar, synth and a whole lot of rhythm, PHOENIX RISING was born.

Like setting fire to gas, the newly formed group had written an album's worth of material in one month, and the search for producers began. This search led PHOENIX RISING to Tyler Smyth; however Smyth was on tour six hours away in San Antonio . With no way to get in touch with Smyth, Kent went down to San Antonio with a pillow and a sleeping bag, on a mission to maneuver himself back stage, and persuade Smyth to listen to the demos, hoping that after hearing the music, Smyth would be driven to work with the band. Mission Complete, Smyth agreed to work with PHOENIX RISING in LA and shortly thereafter, the band flew out to record their debut album From the Ashes.

With the Album complete, supported by several Music Video's - PHOENIX RISING now look forward to drawing emotion from the listener and inspire fans with their powerful stage show. The music has a very "overcoming" quality to it. Musically and lyrically, PHOENIX RISING wants you to stand up for what you believe in and overcome any and all adversity that blocks your path.
