ANTIGONE RISING storms into the new year with a foot stompin’ new single and a founding band member on the cover of Time Magazine. When the New York based, alt-country female rockers do something, they do it big. Catapulted into the national spotlight in 2005 with a groundbreaking major label debut that landed them in the top 20 of the Billboard Heatseekers chart for an entire year, the ladies love outdoing their past accomplishments.


Founding sisters Cathy and Kristen Henderson have always had the same philosophy. Play better than the boys and make sure the fans feel like part of the family. That philosophy plus writing undeniably catchy songs has allowed this self sustained group to maintain her independence and leave an indelible mark on an industry best known for leaving girl (bands) behind.


Antigone Rising’s career has been marked by outdoing past accomplishments. As if touring with The Rolling Stones and Aerosmith could ever be outdone, in 2012 the women were invited by the US Government to travel and perform throughout the Middle East as cultural ambassadors. Headlining arenas in Bethlehem and Tel Aviv at night, performing outreach workshops in remote villages along the West Bank by day, the band soaked in the culture and brought home an understanding of a part of the world most only see via negative news reports.


The next chapter starts now. Antigone Rising’s latest single, “That Was The Whiskey” was co-written with good friend and song writer Lori McKenna (Faith Hill, Little Big Town, Hunter Hayes). “Whiskey” is getting praise from critics as a foot stompin’ mash up, perfectly blending the band’s ability to rock with their gift for writing undeniably catchy songs.
