“Earlier this month, Madison Rising released a distinctive and widely acclaimed rock version of the Star Spangled Banner, updated with a special addendum to reflect our nation’s struggles at the dawn of the 21st century. “We’ve re-worked the National Anthem in an absolutely unique way, but staying as true and respectful to the original version as possible,” said lead singer Dave Bray, a Navy veteran. “It updates and re-energizes one of the best-known songs in American history in way that lifts the American spirit and instills once again a sense of pride in our great nation.”
The music video has already received thousands of rave reviews with virtually everyone who watches it calling it among the best renditions ever. The song itself is available on iTunes, Amazon and numerous other outlets. This year marks the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 during which Francis Scott Key originally penned the Star Spangled Banner.”
The band is attempting to get 1 million views of their version by Nov 6th, Election Day.
