Barricades Rise are Jonathan Coates and Michael McEntee. Based in the Midlands (UK) they are an acoustic duo and the music they produce can be described as Acoustic-Folk-
Jonathan and Michael have played together for close to 15 years in various bands and Barricades Rise was born from the ashes of a 5 piece rock band in 2008. The energy and passion of the rock band is something that they have carried forward into Barricades Rise and coupled with their desire for creating songs with memorable melodies, they truly but on a performance on stage by disregarding the set etiquette of the standard acoustic gig and always leave the stage glistening in sweat. This energy and passion has also been captured on their recordings. Jonathan’s voice rips through each track with a force that is rarely heard from other vocalists and put together with Michael’s creative guitar style, they truly have crafted a unique yet accessible sound.
Since forming, Barricades Rise have been gigging constantly all around the country and gaining new fans with every show. From small pubs to large scale festivals, they have made their mark. They recorded their debut album ‘You and Your Adored’ in 2009 and it received great reviews from the online press. A free download EP, No Love Lost, followed in 2010. After the birth of their two sons, the pair took 6 months off but are now back and starting to write new material with the aim for a new release in 2013 entitled “All I Have Is Here” on Spectra Records.
