Saliva rises again.  The Memphis, Tennessee based band that made its name in the late 1990s, is all new in every sense of the word.  Having parted ways with its now former front man Josey Scott and its former label, it has gone back to the drawing board and started fresh.  It will release its new single ‘Rise Up’ online next Tuesday, February 18th.  The single is the title track from its upcoming album due out April 29th via its new label, Rum Bum Records.  New single.  New album.  New label.  New front man.  It doesn’t end there.  The band will also hit the road in support of its new album beginning February 28th in Orlando, Florida.  Currently, the band has announced a total of nine dates.  More dates are likely to be announced.  Fans can keep up with those updates and more on the band’s official website and Facebook page, http://saliva.com and http://www.facebook.com/Saliva.

The band’s new front man is Bobby Amaru.  Guitarist Wayne Swinny explained in an interview how the band came to meet its new front man. “We’re lucky to have found him”, says Swinnny of Amaru.  “We discovered him through one of our old crew guys.  He really energized the rest of us.  He’s a great songwriter, and a top-shelf producer in his own right.”  Swinny went on to explain the meaning behind the song and how it relates to adding Amaru to the fold, as well as producer Bobby Huff (3 Doors Down, Papa Roach) on Rise Up.  “It’s a statement on where we’re at.  The title just has that fire to it.”
