This left-of-center sextet strives to have fans of all walks of life colliding together in the enjoyment of sonic art.

In 2011 the band unveiled three singles off of their debut EP, I’m Not Dying Today, which grasped the attention of Rise Records, who released the EP in February 2012. After Palisades’ success with their inaugural release, they began touring heavily, hitting the road with The Air I Breathe, My Ticket Home, and Hands Like Houses on the 2012 Rise Records Freshman Class Tour.

The record was a huge triumph, reaching #4 on the iTunes Rock charts, #7 on Billboard’s Hot New Artists chart, and debuting on the Billboard Top 200 lists. The band continued their monumental success with a music video for the album’s lead single, “High and Low,” garnering placement on MTV Clubland, and showcasing the energy that they infuse in their live shows for television and viral viewers.
