Not only is today the first month of December, but its also the first day to start casting your votes for Othello/Kennewick natives 'Rise From The Fallen' in the 2011 Project Independent.

Each year, Project Independent coordinates with promoters throughout the world to find the best, independent metal artists in the area. We then invite these artists to participate in our exclusive artist showcases, where they perform in front of their peers, and in the presence of Project Independent A&R. The best, most professional artists are then selected to participate in an online voting process where music fans from around the world decide who will be the next Project Independent Featured Artist.

This year Othello/Kennewick natives 'Rise From The Fallen' won the Project Independent stop in Spokane. They stopped into the 97 Rock/Glass Hook studios a couple weeks ago to talk about the gig and what's up next for them. Take a listen to the interview and then head over to the Project Independent website and cast your vote for these local doods \m/

You can also catch Rise From the Fallen with All Gussied Up, Interim Divine, and Spineshank tonight at Rock Reactor in downtown Kennewick. It's only $10, so get off your ass and go support some local shows!
