iTunes Review

Bouncing back from the loss of band members Brian White and Cory La Quay, the post-hardcore unit A Skylit Drive revisit their 2013 album Rise from an unplugged perspective. Rise: Ascension reveals subtleties in tunes that the previous album only hinted at. Michael Jagmin makes full use of his exceptional vocal range on “Said & Done,” “I, Enemy,” and similarly angst-drenched rockers. Nick Miller’s deft acoustic guitar work ranges from the delicate (“Just Stay”) to the driving (“Unbreakable”), accented by well-tailored string arrangements. For even longtime fans of the band, Rise: Ascension is an impressive revelation.

Impressed, but Fans Keep This In Mind

Noticing a lot of "missing the screams and drums" and "missing Brian and Corey". While it is a tragedy that the band lost two very talented members, the band is trying to continue forward and make music for us - the fans. Honestly, I loved this album. It was beautifully done. (Pendulum and Save Me Tragedy sounded wondrous in their new acoustic versions.) By the way, they probably wouldn't have done screams with this album anyway because it's an ACOUSTIC album. Don't get me wrong, I love screaming vocals a lot. But I appreciate that ASD put forth this album, and in my opinion, it's great. Give them time to find new members before you doubt their success in the future.

A Definite Need For ASD Fans

I haven’t been listening to A Skylit Drive for very long. Once I heard Rise for the first time, I instantly wanted to hear more from them. So I went back and listened to some of their older music. Loved it, but still wanted more. I understand that there has been a line-up change in the band, but don’t let that be the deciding factor in whether or not you should purchase this album. This album, to me at least, was exactly what I was hoping for once I heard about it before its release. They didn’t let me down and now I have 12 more great tracks to add to my library. You need this album.

Has to be Good

I heard Rise's Acoustic and it was good so I'm guessing the others will be good as well :D


Formed: Lodi, California

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Formed in 2006 while all of its bandmembers were attending high school in Lodi, California, A Skylit Drive quickly established a familiar post-hardcore sound, combining the aggression of screamo with the pop-leaning aspects of emo. The sextet released its debut EP, She Watched the Sky, in 2007 on Tragic Hero Records. By the end of that year, A Skylit Drive had endured numerous lineup changes, a situation that lent itself well to 2008's tense, angst-fueled full-length debut, Wires...And the Concept...
