Return to Profiles
Aurora Rising were formed in August 2005 when local singing sensation Laura Purdue joined forces with the original and surviving members, Mark (aka Dougs), Gav, Richard and their new bassist Brian of what had been a Glasgow covers band which had reached the end of the line after the original singer walked out, unhappy with the prospect of bringing originals into the set.

  With her good looks, stage presence and incredible voice Laura breathed new life into the old line and a new band was formed.  Bringing originals into the set, the band quickly gelled coming up with the brilliant and brooding Blue Red Sky, which with its fast paced riff, grinding rock and incredible vocals was like a shot of adrenalin to the heart and quickly became their signature tune.  The night train had taken off once again.

  Drawing from varied influences like The Rolling Stones, Guns ‘n’ Roses, Led Zeppelin, ACDC, Metalica and even a hint of The Beatles as evinced in the mesmerizing McCartney influenced Stargazer, Aurora Rising have played all over the Glasgow scene and even as far a field as the far north of Scotland as they spread the word and try to turn on the world to their potent brand of this latest incarnation of rock ‘n’roll.

  As of the end of April, Aurora Rising have just finished recording a four song demo which should be available in early May with samples on the website.  A refreshing down to Earth band,  they write songs about relationships (Blue Red Sky), escapism (Live and Love), the teenage dream (Stargazer), belonging (Open Road), revenge (Victory Rising) and even a dab of politics as well (Dances of Democracy).  

  For more information on the band, please feel free to visit the website which includes full biography, pictures and downloads.
