Formed in 2008, Tension Rising is a metal band, based in New York City. The band's current lineup consists of Frontman and Rhythm Guitarist Chris Garrigan, Bassist Alex Repetti, and Lead Guitarist Alex Raykin. “Tension Rising's ability to wander between sub-genres, weave melodicism through the music and in doing so create something which is both familiar and comfortable yet fresh and forward-looking [is what] makes it a worthy, perhaps necessary, addition to the rock canon.”
The band put out their critically acclaimed album, PENUMBRA, on September 7, 2020.
Tension Rising is currently represented by Death By Metal Promotions.
Alex Repetti is proudly endorsed by Beardly Customs, iGig Cases and DSMnoisemaker.
