Extreme will release its first album in 14 years, titled, Six, on June 9th, according to Ultimate-Guitar.com. The band has just dropped the set's first single, titled "Rise."
Frontman Gary Cherone spoke about the new track explaining, "Musically, it's aggressive. Lyrically, it's a cautionary tale on the rise and fall of fame. You get seduced into it. Once you're on top, they'll rip you apart and tear you down. That's the nature of the beast."
Guitarist Nuno Bettencourt went on to say, "When Eddie Van Halen passed, it really hit me. I'm not going to be the one who will take the throne, but I felt some responsibility to keep guitar playing alive. So, you hear a lot of fire on the record."
