In an empowering return, The Georgia Thunderbolts have unveiled their latest single, "Rise Above It All," out today on all digital platforms. This new anthem, steeped in the band's signature blend of rock and roll, Southern rock, Americana, Rock Country, and raw, heartfelt energy, serves as an early taste of their eagerly awaited new studio album, due out this fall. "Alone we can do wonderful things. Together? We can reach immeasurable bounds,” comments vocalist TJ Lyle. “Be kind. Be courageous and even in the darkest of nights, always chase the light! There’s no limit to what we can achieve. Together we can and we will rise above it all."



This release follows the band's debut album, which has quietly become a sensation, amassing over 6 million streams worldwide. The Georgia Thunderbolts continue to forge their path in the music industry, blending timeless rock influences with their unique flair, as praised by critics and fans alike. Described as "timeless," "quintessential," and "the real deal" by esteemed publications such as Rolling Stone Country, Classic Rock, American Songwriter, Art Voice, and Music Matters Magazine, the band has solidified its place as the torchbearers of Southern rock. The release follows the band’s most recent single “Gonna Shine” and an accompanying music video directed by Jim Arbogast.

In support of their new material, The Georgia Thunderbolts are set to bring their electrifying live performances to venues across the country. Noteworthy tour dates include appearances at the Ellis Theater in Philadelphia, MS with The Kentucky Headhunters, the Coffee Butler Amphitheater in Key West, FL alongside the Marshall Tucker Band, and the iconic Beaver Dam Amphitheatre in Beaver Dam, KY, sharing the stage with legends like Ace Frehley and Foghat.

Hailing from Rome, Georgia, at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, The Georgia Thunderbolts have blazed a trail for a new generation of classic and southern rock enthusiasts. Their sound, deeply rooted in soulful southern swagger, blistering blues, and raw rock, is reminiscent of the iconic rock 'n' roll legends that influenced their musical journey. Their eclectic inspirations span from southern gospel and Hank Williams to the grit of Black Sabbath, the southern rock charm of the Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd and great Georgia singers like James Brown and Otis Redding. It's not just their music that captures attention; their deep-rooted history in Rome, a town steeped in rich agricultural heritage, influences their lyrical narratives and showcases their authentic southern spirit.

From their early days, the band has shared memorable moments on stage with music titans such as Black Stone Cherry, Deep Purple, the Allman Betts Band and Blackberry Smoke. The band has also performed at notable festivals, including the Georgia Country Music Fest alongside headliner Koe Wetzel. Their debut album, as well as their new album, recorded at the iconic Barrick Recording Studio in Glasgow, KY, is a testament to their dedication, passion, and commitment to rock ‘n’ roll. With tracks that blend anthemic guitar riffs, wild harmonica, and pulse-pounding drums, The Georgia Thunderbolts have proven that they are here to rustle up a new era of rock 'n' roll. Their timeless sound, combined with their relentless work ethic and humility, positions them as torchbearers, ensuring the legacy of southern rock remains vibrant and relevant for generations to come.

The band's ascent is a testament to their dedication, passion, and the vibrant legacy of rock and roll.
