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.
I had to check the Rise website (something I never thought I'd do) to make sure this was real.
I love how they argue that this is a "diverse label". I mean, come on.
I'll support anything either band does, because that's the love they deserve, but this is just weird.
Yes, I'm WTFing, and no I'm not way too confident in their decision.
As long as they don't change.
i'm really surprised by this move though. i've always thought rise could be a great label if they improved their roster a little bit and this is definitely a step in the right direction. can't wait to hear new material from both bands.
