The Word Alive Share Their Remake Of The ‘League Of Legends’ Track “Rise”


The Word Alive have shared their remake of the past ‘League Of Legends‘ track, “Rise“. The band’s vocalist Tyler “Telle” Smith originally joined up with The Glitch Mob and Mako on that song, which emerged as the theme song for the 2018 ‘League Of Legends‘ world championship event.

Smith commented of the decision to remake the song now with his own band:

“Back in 2018 I received an email asking if I had any interest in working with Riot Games Music to help create the 2018 League Of Legends Worlds Anthem. Little did I know that email would change my life, and lead to some of the most amazing friendships and career defining moments of my life.

Rise became the second biggest worlds anthem in esports history, and a staple amongst not just gamers but music fans world wide. I’m honored to play a role in Rise, but we were always asked over the years if we would make “our own” version. With the 5 year anniversary we decided to go into the studio and give fans exactly what they’ve asked for as a thank you for all of the amazing memories. I hope you enjoy our ‘Rise Redux‘!”
