Apocalyptica and Epica have joined forces to create the powerful anthem, “Rise Again.” The single precedes a tour in 2023 where both bands will share headlining duties.
This collaboration is an extension of their previous work together; Apocalyptica’s instrumental piece from 2020’s Cell-0 album “Rise” has been reimagined into this distinct new take with Simone Simons’ vocals.
Eicca Toppinen expressed excitement when describing how they carefully crafted the single together:
When we were putting the ‘Epic Apocalypse’ tour together, we were thinking of making this collaboration with Epica even deeper by releasing a song together.
Rise’ from our Cell-0 album had the beauty and feel that we felt could fit perfectly for Simone’s unique voice. We are so happy about the song and really excited about this tour with Epica as it will be something really special and amazing!!!
