ITT: OP implies that there is no beef among bands in similar genres that AP.net covers.
-Sherri / Max Bemis and Chad Gilbert
- A Day to Remember and various other bands.
-NOFX and Underoath
-Fat Mike and Propaghandi
-Fat Mike and Chris Hannah
-Escape the Fate and Ronnie Ratke (or however you spell it)
-Slipknot and Mushroomhead (and actually a lot of other bands too)
Artists who make similar music have been beefing since the Baroque period. It just so happens that these bands are on the same label. There is no way that Rise is going to try to censor what their bands say to each other and risk damaging their good reputation as a record label. All of the effort that it would take for them to facilitate these rivalries would earn them a minimal amount of profit as hardly anyone is going to buy these albums just to hear the few minutes of beef in lyrics.
Never implied that there are never conflicts between other bands within AP genres, I'm not sure where you're getting that. I also didn't say anything about Rise censoring their bands, I think at this point they're either encouraging non-amicable band splits or staging them entirely.
I think you'd be surprised about the rewards for the label, Issues' debut EP hit 96 on the Billboard 200, actually performing better than either of Woe, is Me's records. Of Mice & Men, another band born out of a Rise records split, also put out records that perform pretty much on-par with Attack Attack!. Attack Attack! are a pretty damn profitable band, too: Their last two records charted at 26 and 11 on the Billboard 200. I'd argue that the primary reason OM&M has had similar success is that Austin had a pretty public falling out with AA!, only makes sense that the label would want to try and replicate that type of success with Tyler Carter and the Issues situation.
I find it interesting, I'm not sure why that's so awful.
