I honestly can't tell their vocalist apart at all, they sound musically and vocally identical to attack attack, they just don't use synth.
Why would we complain that they signed a good band? That's when we'll be happy that a good band is getting label support. No on here is saying Rise is a bad label, they do a great job promoting bands for the most part, it just gets old when they sign the same band over and over when there are other great bands they are passing up. Signing bands like these lowers the popular opinion of an otherwise fine label like Rise.
American Me, Attack Attack, Miss May I, My Ticket Home, The Plot in You, Before Their Eyes, The Color Morale, The Devil Wears Prada, Ten After Two, For the Fallen Dreams, In Fear and Faith, Of Mice and Men, Legend, Scarlett O'hara, Woe is Me, Abandon All Ships, Sleeping With Sirens, Those Who Lie Beneath and Ms. White might be a little confused though. Especially more so with just instrumental songs. A lot of these bands sound similar in a way, some more so than others.
Axe TDWP off that list. They're not on Rise anymore. Just saying. Other than that....point taken.
All I had to do was see the promo picks. Same straightened hair kids that were all bit by the ugly spider. And then read the comments on here. Yep, the terrible pile of bands signed to this label continues to rise. (see what I did there?)
They sound like AA! because they recorded with Caleb.
Why would recording with someone change your entire style to sound exactly like Attack attack? They sound like them because they lack originality and think it would help them get signed, which worked I guess.
