Risis are a Maltese rock band formed in 2008. The band was born from a myriad of different names and line-ups, however it all started with drummer Chris Galea who met ex-guitarist of So Chronic and ex Stone Joker, Stefan Farrugia.
They auditioned for a number of bassists until they met James Attard whom they knew through his former band White Crimson. Together they covered powerful bands like Muse, Skunk Anansie and Rage Against the Machine until they decided to start working on original material. While looking for a singer, James stumbled across Jodi’s profile on Facebook. After a successful audition, Jodi Heckenlaible joined Risis and provided the strong voice they were looking for.
The name ‘Risis’ derives from their former “identity cRisis” syndrome where they used to change their band name before every gig.
All the four members show amazing technical and musical skills, with their songs being personal and powerful as can be felt in their live performances. Risis are currently producing their first single with renowned producer Niki Gravino.
