You not only can order their album, but there are lots of other pledges where you can obtain Sweet & Lynch merch, autographed lithograph, signed vinyls and even the Ultimate Fan Pack. There is something for everyone’s budget on there, so check it out and spread the word about Sweet & Lynch.

Check out their song, The Wish and get completely hooked!

I love this track as it brings a fresh new life to the 80’s rock that we all fell in love with without feeling dated. It has a killer guitar solo and vocals that just grab your attention and have you fully engaged with full throttle to rock! This is one sweet rock band that definitely proves Rock n Roll is not dead, far from it with these iconic musicians at the helm.

Make sure to visit their social media sites and stay up to date on their latest news. We will see if we can bring you an interview soon too to find out more about Only To Rise and hopefully with the release right around NAMM time, who knows, maybe a show in the works? Fingers crossed!!!
