Rise and Fall has posted a video clip online for "Hidden Hands," which can be viewed below. The band commented:
"On a sunny Sunday morning in October last year we invited close to 30 of our friends to our practice space in Ghent for the shoot of the first ever Rise And Fall music video. We didn't invite them to act like they were the crowd or anything, no, we invited them to be Rise And Fall.
"From 8 in the morning 'till sunset, footage was shot of our friends pretending they were Rise And Fall. It resulted in 8 hours of footage which was later distilled into a 112 seconds long video by director Mathieu Vandekerckhove who also filmed the whole project. All this hard work, and sweat (we kept the heat at full blast in our practice space), resulted in a visual and auditive whirlwind that will commence after you hit play. Turn it up loud, watch it full screen and in HD if possible! We wanna thank everyone in the video and especially Mr. Vandekerckhove who spent hours on end editing this bastard.
"Look for members of Oathbreaker, Congress, Hessian, Reproach, Kindred, Amenra, Kingdom, Blind To Faith, Insult, Inhume, The Rott Childs, Kabul Golf Club, Kapitan Korsakov, Drums Are for parades, Minor Thieves, Vermin Twins, Officer Jones, Morrocan, Control Records, Rhythm To The Madness, Justice, Filler, Joshua's Song,… all bands we advise you to check out and find out what's going on in Belgium in 2012. Thank you."

Rise And Fall has posted the song "Hidden Hands" online the band's upcoming album "Faith." Check out the track in the player below. "Faith" is set for release via Deathwish on March 20th, 2012. The following press release was also issued about the album:
"'Faith' is Rise And Fall's artistic exploration on the concepts of faith and fate, nature and nurture, and life and death. Struggles that we can all relate to in our daily lives. Sonically, the album melds an impassioned technical proficiency and emotional performance unlike any other previous Rise And Fall release. Showing that in their maturity, Rise And Fall have gained creative depth without losing the ferocity that earned them their rightful place on the throne of the Belgian hardcore community.
"'Faith' was engineered and recorded by Kurt Ballou (Converge) at God City studios. It includes guest appearances by Kurt himself, Stephen Brodsky (Cave In), Justin De Tore (Mind Eraser, etc.), Kevin Baker (The Hope Conspiracy, APMD, etc). More...
