Because everybody cares.

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.

Excited to see the others signings.
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.

Haha wait till you see what Velocity announces next.
If is not that they're dropping AAS, I don't think I'll be too excited.

I can see it now. You know those stickers Rise puts on the front of all their releases with the "for fans of" and lists bands picked out by a deaf person? Man Overboards will read "For Fans Of: A Day To Remember, Attack Attack!, and Devil Wears Prada." And Transit's will read: "For Fans Of: A Day To Remember, Attack Attack!, and Devil Wears Prada."

I don't care they signed to Rise. The thing I do care about are the tours they'll be on now. I don't see myself going to a show with 14 year old Attack Attack fans.

Just because they're on Rise doesn't mean they'll tour with the shittiest of Rise bands. They'll probably keep going on the kinds of tours they've been doing and have planned, maybe some bigger tours in the genre when Rise can get them some. Wouldn't expect them to be opening for any synthcore *-_-

Yes, because you've seen the future. Only time will tell.
Well you haven't either. Only time will tell.

You wouldn't expect it... but didn't Polar Bear Club and This Is Hell just opened for ABR and BMTH? I know PBC is on B9, but This is Hell is on Rise, opening for shitty bands that aren't in their genre.
That's not the norm though, and it was a pretty big tour they got to play with a similar genre band in Polar Bear Club. All I'm saying is its not likely these guys will tour with shitty metalcore bands, Rise has enough of those already that they don't need to fill out their tours with pop punk bands.
