New clip gives back to fans

Extreme has decided to give back to the generations of rock fans who have continuously supported them and kept rock alive. Following the overwhelming response to “Rise,” the first single and video from their current album Six via earMUSIC, the band has released an alternate version of the single’s music video, “Rise: Generations on a Mission.”

Directed by guitarist and co-founder Nuno Bettencourt, the clip tells the story of two young musicians living the same dream which generations of rock fans and Extreme fans have lived and breathed for decades… creating music, playing music and sharing that passion on stage or in the audience. As a part of this, Extreme and earMUSIC have created a space where fans, bands and musician friends of Extreme spanning the years can come together and share their covers of “Rise.” Extreme and earMUSIC’s mission is to share fans’ “Rise” covers using their platforms to spread the word, reach the world and unite all generations on the journey to keep rock and roll alive.

“It is not a contest and it is not a competition, but the winner is rock ‘n’ roll,” says Bettencourt.

In the US, Six sold an impressive 15k units in its first week and charted on several different Billboard charts: No. 2 on the Top Hard Rock Albums, No. 10 on both the Top Album Sales and Top Current Album Sales, No. 14 on the Independent Albums chart, No. 42 on the Artist Top 100 and No. 67 on the Top 200.

Recorded at Bettencourt’s home studio in Los Angeles, Six swings between unapologetic fits of fret-burning hard rock and intimately introspective balladry.

Extreme is currently gearing up August 2nd to perform for audiences across the globe on their headlining Thicker Than Blood world tour which includes appearances in the US, Australia, Japan, UK and Europe including specials guests Living Colour in the US, Australia and UK only, and The Last Internationale in Europe only.
