Antigone Rising (AR), the New York based all-female rock band, has announced the release of Whiskey & Wine – Volume 2 in conjunction with new tour dates. The fab four comprised of Nini Camps (lead singer), Dena Tauriello (drums), and founding sisters Kristen Henderson (bass/vocals) and Cathy Henderson (guitar/vocals), are showing no signs of slowing down. Since releasing Whiskey & Wine – Volume 1 on iTunes last year, the band has not only kept busy with a non-stop touring schedule, but they have committed to long studio hours to complete the highly anticipated Volume Two of the double EP project.
“With W&W Vol. 2, the songs have gotten much more personal, the productions a little more elaborate. These songs all have something to say,” says Kristen Henderson. “It’s important to the band that we write songs that say something about who we are and what we stand for.”
Antigone Rising have toured with such A-listers as Aerosmith and The Rolling Stones; were appointed as cultural ambassadors by the United States government to tour Israel and the Middle East; and have also played a part in LGBTQ advocacy, making news when Kristin Ellis-Henderson appeared on the cover of Time Magazine with wife Sarah Kate Ellis-Henderson (president/CEO of GLAAD) for a feature on marriage equality.
Known for their unique and electrifying live performances featuring toe-tapping beats and powerful vocals, Antigone Rising continues to make a lot of noise. Look out for the new album on March 17.
