The "Rise Up" Campaign


Recommended Posts

In the past several weeks we have heard the Gospel themed "Rise Up" campaign on the radio. Our band has had a song called "Rise Up" for a few years and we started thinking that there are some fans out there that may not feel too fired up with a Gospel themed campaign because thats not the type of music they listen to regularly so maybe there could be a hip hop version, a rock version, etc to reach different fans that get fired up musically in different ways. We are huge fans of the Falcons and figured we would lend our song in support of the campaign.

Dear Enemy has started a campaign to raise support for the Atlanta, Falcons’ upcoming season. What better way to support the hometown team than with a song from a hometown band?! Dear Enemy has gone back in the studio to rerecord and reproduce their song, “Rise Up,” in support of the Falcons and to help get some hard rock and metal fans more fired up about a great season. They can hear the song and share at:

Feel free to take a listen or don't but the main point is let's get the Atlanta fans more fired up about the Falcons this season and get some butts in the seats!!! We realize not everyone is into hard/rock and metal and this is in no way meant to be representation of all Atlanta fans but we figured this is something that could reach the niche of fans that are more affected by this type of music. This is not intended to be spam or soliciting but rather a start of a discussion on your feelings about the new "Rise Up" campaign and if you think it can work to get the fans excited about the upcoming season and also if you think different styles of music would be more effective in doing so.

That freakin rocks and will definitely get people pumped up. Maybe somebody on here could make a Falcons video and use that music.

Thanks so much! Yeah we didn't want to have any issues with licensing or anything like that since we can't legally use any footage and were unsure about the logos but we are all about putting those on there. We just have to make sure everything is legit and don't want to do anything to slight the organization. Spread the word and let them know this is what will get people pumped!!! They can't ignore the fans!

Yeah man..there's plenty of us out there and alot of them are Falcons fans so this is just a perfect marriage we think. Imagine this song playing in the stadium at times with everyone singing along RISE UP! GET UP! RISE UP!

Now THAT is what its about! Uniting the fans under one voice to get the players hyped up and pushing that extra inch to make the play happen!

There are some metal fans here. Speaking of which, there is an awesome song by High on Fire called "Snakes for the Divine", where he screams "RISE UP TONIIIGHT!" with the most grizzled sounding shriek ive heard in a long time. It would be perfect in the dome!
