Frontiers Music Srl has announced the signing of GENERATION RADIO (formerly THE RISE ABOVE),a new rock group centered around the combined talents of Jay DeMarcus and Jason Scheff. Two-time Grammy Award-winning bassist Demarcus of the hugely popular country act RASCAL FLATTS and Scheff, who was lead vocalist and bass player for the multi-platinum band CHICAGO for over 30 years, are joined by drummer/vocalist Deen Castronovo (JOURNEY, REVOLUTION SAINTS),guitarist Chris Rodriguez and guitarist Tom Yankton in GENERATION RADIO.

Fans of classic AOR in the style of JOURNEY and CHICAGO are going to absolutely lose their minds when they hear GENERATION RADIO's stunning debut, which is scheduled for release this summer. More details will be released soon.

Demarcus said: "I am so excited to finally release the project that we worked on in 2020, during a worldwide pandemic. It was a wonderful, and much-needed, distraction for all of us. We stumbled onto some magic and I am so proud to partner with Frontiers on this and for the world to hear what we’ve done. Any fans of CHICAGO, JOURNEY or RASCAL FLATTS will find something in this record that will resonate with them. To make some music with my friends and heroes is a truly incredible thing."

Added Scheff: "I know that the band is very excited to have partnered with Frontiers on this first release from GENERATION RADIO. I have a personal great feeling about it, having brought Frontiers to CHICAGO to release our 36th album 'Now: Chicago XXXVI', of which I produced and co-wrote the title track. We have a beautiful history together, so it only made sense to bring Frontiers into any of my ongoing projects. We are booking live dates as we speak and are already talking about getting started on the next record."
