Rise Records Sign Sleeping With Sirens
 
Sleeping With Sirens have signed to Rise Records.

xsinkshipsx 11/09/09 03:10 PM

bullshit

ndoleman 11/09/09 03:11 PM

Screams are bad, singing sounds good. Just another rise band though

Riveting lyrics are what can only make the voice of Kellin sound even better as he smoothly combines screaming and singing.

Do bands pay someone to write shitty bios?

Keagan Ilvonen 11/09/09 03:22 PM

Sounds better than a lot of Rise bands but nothing great. Hard to tell with only one song.

ship of fools 11/09/09 03:23 PM

Are vnecks still cool?

Max_123 11/09/09 03:23 PM

was just about to submit this haha
yeah yeah, they're just another Rise band but he's got a great voice

Nick Le 11/09/09 03:27 PM

This was the band that had like a big build-up to their MySpace that I thought was very anti-climactic. I think.

Edit: I like the clean vocals a lot though.

Taking_Frags 11/09/09 03:29 PM

sweet hair broz

red8ge 11/09/09 03:33 PM

Ever notice everytime rise signs a band, they suddenly get 20 shirts on merchnow?

NationalProduct 11/09/09 03:50 PM

i heard a bunch of the demos and im normally not a hardcore kid, but they have some softer stuff i really dig, congrats guys. not many bands ever get the chance at a record deal so congrats. its what every band wants, and i hope you guys do well

tyramail 11/09/09 03:50 PM

not bad, but hard to judge with only one song.

PoweredbyPJ 11/09/09 03:54 PM

this band is really good. they had 2 songs up before but took them down today. i liked them both waaay more then the one they just put up today.

Only when you have a badass chest piece to show off ...

Also ... considering how many of these bands there are with stupidly higher and higher pitched singers, I can't believe no one has turned up with a ludicrously low croon.

Color Morale 11/09/09 04:39 PM

this is so fucking good
i love when they sighn bands like this

more heart 11/09/09 04:43 PM

These guys were already listed on Rise's website yesterday hehe. They're alright. Nothing special, but I guarantee I'll be buying their debut record.

TwelveTribes230 11/09/09 04:47 PM

I could see myself getting into this band. The vocals are really good (yes they are high pitched), but still good.

encmetalhead 11/09/09 04:55 PM

vocals are really good actually

Alex DiVincenzo 11/09/09 06:35 PM

Screams don't sound very good -- both in terms of performance and mixing -- but the clean singing is good.

erm, no

Dysentary Gary 11/09/09 06:50 PM

terrible band name.

barkingincision 11/09/09 07:06 PM

i knew this band would get signed
typical
good vocals, though it's an obvious attempt at jonny craig. they're even on tour with him.
the production quality is atrocious.

barkingincision 11/09/09 07:12 PM

i would actually like to hear this dude without so much blatant autotune on his voice, maybe some actual reverb.
whoever is producing these screamo bands really needs to stop.

why does every band nowadays with a high-pitched singer automatically have to be thrown into the category "trying to be like Jonny Craig"

i've already seen that
i already said he was good.
and yes, he is influenced by jonny craig and anthony green, all that
honestly this band would be more listenable if the production wasn't so shitty
do you even hear those drums? no tonality, just flat and processed, and the vocals are so laced with antares it's hard to imagine this producer has a job.

Their singer sounds nothing like either singer. Honestly, he sounds more like Misha from Broadway. As far as the production goes, did you stop and think there could be a possibility that this is only a demo? Demos typically have shitty quality.

hopefully it's just a demo
but according to Rise's blog they just finished their album with the guys who did the Of Machines, Oceana, Broadway and more albums so it should be decent

Mr. Nasty Time 11/09/09 07:31 PM

they look like every other band (you'd see in alt. press)

yeah those dudes who tracked those albums are the ones who autotune the living shit out of bands these days, not to mention end up with really bad recordings
im sorry, im not hating on the band, but whoever produces these rise bands doesn't know what the fuck they're doing.

that's what i was going to say. he sounds a bit like michael jagmin from a skylit drive also. but definitely not jonny craig.

Good signing for Rise. I can see myself liking their record quite a bit judging from the one song.

danawalker 11/09/09 10:10 PM

so stoked on this. good dudes!

robdobi 11/10/09 03:56 AM

whoever is singing sounds like he or she is pinching their balls.

ninthandash 11/10/09 05:16 AM

I think the lead vocals sound like they're being sped up a little bit and pitch shifted.
And I swear to God, I've heard riff at like 0:13 before.
Am I thinking of Saosin or something?

rise bands typically get a deal with merch now where they are fronted the money for a few shirts and then they pay back the company through sales. i talked to alex from oceana and thats what he told me

WaterViolence 11/10/09 09:12 AM

Myspace song is hot.

willvc 11/10/09 09:44 AM

Well, dang.. they were on a roll.
