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.

what's next, hellogoodbye on sumerian?

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.

Rise is not going to stop signing metalcore synth screamo bands. They have the market absolutely cornered, and it's what's made them into a powerful label. And honestly, there are a lot of kids out there who like that music, I personally hate it, but that's just my opinion.

I knew about this deal months ago, when Rise first offered it and Man Overboard and Transit were considering it. Rise simply said they love their music and would like to make a real effort to expand the label's roster. Synthy metalcore won't be a around forever, so they're just trying to diversify, and try and remove that 'only one style of music' label image. They're definitely going to put all the effort they can into Man Overboard and Transit. Congrats to all involved.

I'm glad Rise decided to sign to really good pop-punk bands. They finally have some diversity in them.

So, next we're gonna hear that Fearless has signed Blink-182 eh?

Anyways, good luck to Man Overboard & Transit, both are great bands and I'm glad to see they'll have some solid backing. Hope they get huge, they both deserve it.

Transit and Manoverboard are hardworking dudes they deserve this. Expect a manoverboard and mayday parade tour. Rise may not be what everyone expected but this is better than them going on fuledby ramen where they won't get enough attention or getting brought up to a major too soon like Valencia. I bet when the starting line puts out their next album it's on a label like rise.
