Haha, so Jay was right after all.

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...

Band is good. Just don't get how they fit.
The wave isn't a genre thing. They're just all friends. They do all however play a more organic style of hardcore/post hardcore/punk music, so while MDAM don't fit exactly with the genre, they do with the general theme of the Wave.

Great news. I think Craig said that he's announcing another signing next Monday.
Hey from facebook!

they refer to themselves as the wave because they're a wave of new post-hardcore bands. one of the bands isn't post-hardcore by any stretch of the imagination. can you guess which one?
Looks like someone needs a lesson in post-hardcore roots...


Sounds closer to MDAM then it does LD or TA right?

i mean i know post-hardcore used to draw a lot of influence from punk and stuff but today's definition of post-hardcore is different from the definition of post-hardcore 20 years ago. genres evolve. or you were you unaware of that?
I was aware of that, but to say that Make Do And Mend aren't post-hardcore isn't true. Screaming and breakdowns are not a requirement of post-hardcore. Post-hardcore, as I'm sure you know because you don't seem ignorant (being sincere not sarcastic), is short for post-hardcore punk. Make Do and Mend's sound definitely aligns with the post-hardcore punk sound, it's just influenced by the older PH bands like Fugazi/Embrace, Shellac, etc. Post-Hardcore is an umbrella. Sure they aren't more screamo influenced (like the rest of the wave bands), but they fit the theme of post-hardcore getting more organic and back to roots.

EDIT: but we don't have to argue, this is amazing news either way.

Rise Records is quite incredible lately. So much good to come out in 2012.
Everyone seems to forget their other recent signings, Daytrader and Cheap Girls, who I think are both incredible. Both of them have records coming out in 2012, TEN, HWM, Make Do and Mend, and those are just the new signings. So psyched.

best posts. i was laughing so hard.
Looks like Craig Erickson's true musical tastes are finally bleeding through. This is hell for all the scene kids though, I mean they're attracted to xcore bands like moths to flames. Who will be the scene go-to label when Rise throws all the xcore bands to the sharks?

Do me a favor.. I was on the phone with a client and typed out a ton of grammatical errors in that awesome joke. Can you edit your quote to reflect my corrections? Hahaha I can't believe I'm asking but it's driving me batshit.

Dream on, dreamer. No one's gonna fix your crummy grammar.
Oh, woe is me. My grammar sucked so bad he must have needed the help of a professional decoder just to interpret what I was saying.

Back to Rise though, at this velocity, they'll have every band even remotely related to the genre signed by 2015.

I feel like their plan of attack lately is What Would No Sleep Do?
Guess you didn't catch the velocity pun :/

And yeah, but I have no problem with that. I mean, good bands are going to get the promotion they deserve and as for No Sleep/Run For Cover (and etc etc), they'll have to scout out more talent to fill their roster and they've got a good track record with that. It's a weird win-win-win situation in a way.

Went completely over my head. You're too good at this game. You're a legend.
I see what you did there! I can't think of any more. I guess I went from first to last place in this thread :/
