Yuck

Their roster is fucking disgusting and its even worse that they're a subsidiary of Victory.

Really wished they would have signed back on to No Idea or do something with Tom Gabel's new record label

Talk about misinformed.

Rise isn't, and never was, a subsidiary of Victory. Both are separate entities. For a period of time Victory distributed Rise releases, but that partnership ended a few years back.
Still no excuse for signing all those shitty scene bands, they might as well be Victory lite.

Who the fuck cares? Stop being such a whiny bitch because they didn't sign to some super small punk label.
I'll stop being a whiny little bitch when you get better taste in music you sanctimonious asshole. So I guess I'm going to continue to be a whiny little bitch

Your avatar suits you. Just be happy the band is signed asshole. ...And that whole better taste thing? Yeah that's horse shit, no such thing as your opinion being greater than anyone else you elitist dick.
I'd rather be an elitist dick than listen to horrible music.

And do you know why they signed those bands? BECAUSE PEOPLE BOUGHT THOSE RECORDS.

Weird how record labels sign bands that have a popular sound, it's like they're trying to make money and be a sustainable business in what has turned into an almost impossible to survive industry.

Why didn't HWM sign to an indie punk label? Because it's not 1998 and they don't have to.
I'd rathe a record label have integrity and sign good bands (Discord, No Idea) than be worried about making money. There are lots of great independent labels out there that don;t make a substantial amount of money, but they're still able to sign great artist.

I don't see someone like Ian Mackaye or Mike Park signing an artist just so they can add an extension to their house.
