You can check out the first part of my interview with Favorite Weapon here. In this half, I talk with vocalist Hance Alligood and guitarist Alex Heroes about the band's beginnings, naming their band after Brand New's Your Favorite Weapon, and what we can expect from their Velocity/Rise Records debut, Sixty Saragossa. Check back tomorrow for part two.
Immediately following Woe, Is Me, I knew I still wanted to do music, but I just didn’t know at that point whether it would be a new band, solo album, whatever. So last October, almost a year ago I went to Florida with Tom Denney, and he said “I don’t know what you’re thinking about doing with music, but if you want to come down and just...

You can check out the second part of our interview with Like Moths To Flames vocalist Chris Roetter here. In this half, we talk about future lyrical content, a brand new EP and album, and social causes. The band also hopes to be on next summer's Warped Tour. For part one, head here.
Honestly, you know how everyone says they’re their own worst critic? When I listen back to An Eye For An Eye, there’s a lot of shit that I probably would’ve changed lyrically. Some stuff we tried to write in for our fans, like the cheesy one-liners that are there because they make sense in context of the song, but you pull it out by itself and it’s like “Wow, that’s super lame.” I kind of want to stray...

You can check out the first part of our interview with Like Moths To Flames vocalist Chris Roetter here. In this half we talk about the band's time on this summer's All-Stars Tour, the band's live performance, as well as their current album, An Eye For An Eye. Come back tomorrow for part two.
No, we’re trying to change it up and go with more of a plan as a unit, as opposed to a plan as individuals. We’re trying to sit down and take the pre-production and the writing more into consideration instead of the studio to come and go “Shit, we have to write 15 songs”. We’re going in with the intent of having 10-15 songs, and then trimming it down to record 2 or 3.

It's pretty hard to argue that Rise Records isn't one of the top independent record labels out there. Thinking about it, the first time I had ever heard of the label was when Drop Dead, Gorgeous played at a Christian festival Tomfest in July of 2006. I remember learning about new bands through the label's sampler CDs (remember those?) - this was one of my first exposures to bands like The Devil Wears Prada and more. The following AbsolutePlaylist is a collection of what I consider to be Rise Records very best - hopefully you find a new artist or two to check out and support. Definitely include links to your own favorites in the replies.

You can read our interview with Crown The Empire here. The band's new album The Resistance: Rise Of The Runaways is currently streaming on iTunes First Play.
On this record we don’t focus as much on the sad as much, it’s a very empowering record. We talk about belonging to that group of people that all feel the same way; we all belong to it, and we’re more than welcome to anyone who wants to be part of this world with us

Head to Billboard to read an article on Rise Records' "Unlikely, Exponential Success."
“I think illegal downloading actually helped us 10 years ago because fans would spread the word to people who would later support the bands,” says Ericson. “We’ve been aggressive about getting our music out there where it can be heard hassle-free.”

Polar Bear Club's new album, Death Chorus, hits stores tomorrow (you will be able to read my review on the record later tonight), and a lot of discussion has focused on vocalist Jimmy Stadt's cleaner vocal delivery. So Stadt released a statement about the new vocal direction, which you can read in the replies.
Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t an excuse or an apology, we in PBC back this record 100 percent including the vocals. If it isn’t your thing then that’s fine, it’s completely fine if you prefer older records to this one! What isn’t fine though is the idea that we’re trying to “get big” or “go mainstream” or “Rise Records changed us” yadda yadda yadda. I feel stupid that I even have...
