Either way, really enjoyed the acoustic EP. curious to see where they go with this. Still don't see how they fit in with the rest of the Wave, as the styles aren't even close.


Don't always agree with ACA but I do here. What the hell are you talking about?

The temptation to put out a worthless record and cash in on a generation of dumb ass kids is just so large. It's so easy to do, and, until MDAM really establish themselves, it's a worry of mine. Though, a tour with Thursday, meWithoutYou, Aficionado.. covering Touche Amore.. endorsement from La Dispute, Pianos, etc.. that should erase that fear. Here's to hoping it's fucking awesome!

They've toured with plenty of other great bands as well, they're doing it right.

They absolutely won't go that route, I have more faith in this band than basically any band I've ever worked with in my life. They have a great sound, a sound that's JUST different enough to carry some water, and an excellent mentality. Their LP is my most anticipated for 2012 by far!

I am super excited for this one too... BUT THERE IS NEW GASLIGHT NEXT YEAR, THOMAS. MDAM are a top 5 most anticipated for me, but Gaslight will hold the top slot no matter what.

Haha yes

I don't like some of the recent signings but I admire Rise Records. And because of that, they made me give Transit and A Loss For Words a second chance and I got a pair of great records. The guy does it right. Even the bands I personally hate, he treats right. Such a great label.

The staff really need to invest in a shock collar for cwhit.

Regrettably, I missed Polar Bear Club, Fireworks, Such Gold, Balance and Composure, and Make Do and Mend this fall. That's a really solid lineup, and I shit the bed.. but the sets were so, so, so short that I couldn't really justify it.

Before that, who have they toured with? I don't recall seeing them ever headline the NYC-area?

These guys never disappoint.

Nick Le 11/30/11 11:43 AM

Congrats! Love End Measured Mile. Still need to cop the acoustic EP.

Great news.

WE KNEW. WE KNEW!

Also, this is nothing short of incredible and I haven't been this excited for a record since the hype for Daisy or Blue Sky Noise...
