The Acacia Strain ZOMGGGGG.
But it seems Rise drops all their great bands that don't fit the trends. They may e signing better bands, but they're still the profitable ones that are really trendy currently, like the whole new pop punk scene.
Well, yeah, a record label is a business. Would you rather resign This Is Hell, a band that is 4 full-lengths deep and going nowhere, or an up-and-comer like Transit?
