I find it interesting that everyone on AP.net staff seems to be so down with Rise Records, now. Don't get me wrong, I ain't goin lie, they're my favorite label, but everybody hates on them and now it seems Rise is getting lots of AP.net coverage & praise. What's changed?
They've taken at least one step to becoming a legitimate label, instead of the shitty scenecore label they are known as. Hopefully they continue to push good bands and maybe drop some of the terrible ones they have now. Or at least move them to an imprint.
Me too, hopefully it is more quality stuff.
I know a band who has done everything since they were formed to be on Rise, including their haircuts, current merch, layouts, and overall forgettable sound. They are going to be really upset if Rise does stop signing those types of repetitive shitcore bands.
