Rise has been a long time coming, with its first two singles Build A World Maestro released towards the end of 2016. 

Both songs caused quite a stir among industry and fans alike with their striking videos being produced by acclaimed film-maker, Adrian Goleby
Adrian will once again be at the helm for the next visual feast to be served up by the band in the very near future.

Rise was produced, mixed and recorded by Matt D'Arcy at Basin Productions amongst the picturesque foot hills of Melbourne’s Dandenong ranges, with mastering duties handled by Steve Smart at Studios 301 in Sydney.

Orsome Welles ended 2016 on a major high, touring nationally with fellow Wild Thing Presents comrades Circles, and appearing at the sold out Progfest in Melbourne where they were a major crowd favourite, receiving rave reviews 

Orsome Welles have found an approach to prog-rock that no other band has achieved.” - Heavy Mag
The band is in devastating form…their live set just gets bigger, badder and bolder with every show they play.” - The Music
Vocalist Michael Stowers’ operatic wail truly elevates them into the prog rock cosmos.” - Beat Magazine

Orsome Welles are a band that defy classification. An unconventional merge of progressive and heavy, overlaid with an early 20th century panache; pounding grooves, infused with intricate instrumentality and raw uncaged power. 

Their avant-garde live show, exemplified by their musical ferociously offset by the soulful, soaring vocals of enigmatic frontman Michael Stowers is a sight to behold.

Since arriving on the scene in 2014 with their Erth News Bulletin EP, Orsome Welles have received praise from all areas of international heavy scene. 
They have supported global heavyweights such as Trivium, Seether, Orphaned Land and The Ocean and played with the best of the best of the burgeoning Australian prog-rock heavy scene including Twelve Foot Ninja, Ne Obliviscaris, Caligula’s Horse, Voyager, and more.
