Risen is a hard rock and metalcore band that originated out of Indianapolis, Indiana in the United States. The band began in 2020, formed by Guitarist Jammin Shue, Vocalist Chandler Ballinger, and Drummer Mason Beard.

History Edit

Risen began in early 2020, created by Jammin Shue, who would find Vocalist Chandler Ballinger and Drummer Mason Beard and the three would begin practicing together. Guitarist Garnett Mwangi was also hired briefly, however, he was unable to continue.

Shortly thereafter, the three hired on Guitarist Hyperion Zhang, as well as Bassist Heidi Dendler, and the band began to practice. Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the band was forced to cancel their first show.

During their off-time, the band hired on Travis "Ducky" Fields, who had previously played in A World Apart, alongside Shue.[1][2] On August 8, 2020, the band performed their debut show, however, only with the lineup of Ballinger, Shue, Zhang, and Beard.
