Episode Info:

Uprise was a hardcore band based out of Northern Jersey. 

I heard about them when Mike Z joined the band because he was a classmate of mine at Jefferson Township High School and it was the first time I ever saw a local band put out a 7in which blew my mind. I talk about this in the interview.

You may also remember the Morris County Youth Crew from back then which Matt formed. That name has come up a few times in previous podcast interviews. Especially Episode 23 with Brian Molloy who talks about the Morris County Adult Crew. Which, btw, I made merch for. You can check that out on in the STORE.

I got Matt on the phone and this is what we talk about:

  • Hair metal
  • Growing up in Morristown
  • Straight edge
  • Gorilla Biscuits
  • His band Downfall
  • The Music Den in Jefferson
  • The NJ Impossibles
  • Replacing Fortitude with Uprise on a show
  • THE Morris County Adult and Youth Crew
  • Ben from Dillinger Escape Plan being in the band
  • Frank Cappuccio
  • Their 7 in being pink
  • Weston
  • Hello Bastard’s artwork ripping off another album
  • And a ton more

Check out Matt’s other band Dead Nation on Spotify.

And his other other band Kissing is a Crime
