Good move for all parties. Rise gets to boost their cred a bit and the bands get the kind of support and distribution they need to take the next step.
Really happy for Transit. They've come a long way since I played with them at VFW's and they released the kind of record that deserves this much attention. Plus they work tremendously hard.
And fingers crossed they blow up so my burned CD of their early demos will be worth bank. If I can find it...
"It was a cold October fall, VFW hall. Singing songs while my friends sing along. Some days the cops get called, but no we won't knock this off. We're diving off of pool tables we're piling on. And when we're cleaning up, VFW might get drunk. He'll tell us about girls he got in Vietnam. BEST DUDE!"
