Again, why does the band signing to rise have anything to do with the rest of the roster? Who cares who pushes an album be it Rise, Victory, or any one else as long as its being made. And as others have said, while Rise does have some shit-core bands they have great ones to balance out their roster.

If you're for some reason still infuriated by them being signed to a label where they can have their art supported then take that stick out of your ass and move along.

I feel like they should have stayed with Epitaph.

Nobody gets that the shitty bands need to exist on the roster so the good bands are able to get proper funding. Bands like Woe Is Me and The Plot In You will be no names next year, but Rise will have cashed in while they still could and can use that money to market Man Overboard, Transit, This Is Hell, Hot Water Music, Sharks and A Loss For Words better and get them on bigger tours. I'm as disappointed as anyone Oceana, Tides of Man and PmToday have all jumped ship, but the future does look bright for Rise.

Here's to newfound respectibility!

Well this is even more random than the MO/Transit signings.

Did HWR officially reunite?

Still no excuse for signing all those shitty scene bands, they might as well be Victory lite.
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.
