Montreal, QC’s THE RISING FEW are upping their game with a bigger sound and larger than life songs with the launch of their taunting new EP ‘Adult Entertainment’, a high-energy, anthemic songbook sure to resonate with all rock enthusiasts. The EP is now available as of May 12th on iTunes, Spotify and all major online retailers.
In support of the EP, vocalist and illustrator Karim Terouz has put together a time lapse video painting a mural of the release’s cover artwork to background samples of their new tracks.
“‘These are some of the best random, visual motifs on the net altered to flow with the strokes and sounds of our new EP” comments Terouz.

Cairo born singer-songwriter, Karim Terouz, fronts the now expanded THE RISING FEW, a culturally diverse group of Montreal musicians from scattered points of the world (Haiti, France, Syria, Canada, Brazil, Armenia and Egypt) that seem to converge in their shared love for melodically constructed, Springsteen inflicted rock and roll storytelling.
With their new EP, ‘Adult Entertainment’, the follow up to their 2014 debut album “Sinners On St-Laurent’”, THE RISING FEW have transitioned from their beginnings as a folky local singer songwriter/backing band to stadium-worthy rock for the world’s global mainstream stage.
Delusional behavior is the main theme driving this new EP’s lyrical and musical content. Songs like “Big Boy Games” illustrate the act of treason while ‘’The Sinking of The I’m Alone’’ depicts the historical sinking of the Canadian schooner the ‘’I’m Alone’’ during the prohibition era. Other songs like the hypnotic “Try Try Again” flirts with the delusion of failure while the subtle ‘’Lights and Shadows’’ tackles melancholy in love-loss, as you cannot fight without loving. The generous EP also contains 2 additional bonus tracks.
“It was GO BIG or GO HOME! We’re all recent immigrants to Canada and in a time where cultural differences are threatened, THE RISING FEW take the chance to promote their unity, by tackling these issues and presenting them in classy, colorful, adult contemporary rock.” says Karim Terouz.
