ICYMI: Rise Records catch-up

It’s pretty safe to say Rise Records have had a couple of huge weeks these last couple of weeks with quality and quantity both breaking out of its roster.

First up is The Gospel Youth who released their stunning new album on the 14th July – their debut on Rise as well as their first full length. Always Lose comes as a follow-up to the twelve crowdfunded singles in twelve months that made the group their name, becoming renowned as the up-and-coming British rock band with their honest lyrics and catchy hooks. In addition to the whole album, they’ve released a video for the track Your Love Was A Cancer which was filmed on this year’s Vans Warped Tour. The band are currently still out on the road for another couple of weeks on that run until it closes on 6th August.

Goldfinger have made a monumental comeback with their first album in nine years titled The Knife which was released yesterday. Since 2008’s Hello Destiny, the band have been working on songs to supply other artists as well as frontman John Feldmann’s infamous production work for the likes of 5 Seconds of Summer and Black Veil Brides. The new album itself features appearances from Mighty Mighty Boss Tones guitarist Nate Albert and a near-whole album performance from blink-182‘s Travis Barker on drums amongst others, and was released on Rise yesterday (21st July).  The latest single from the album is called Put The Knife Away which easily demonstrates how Goldfinger have grown since that last album with huge gang vocals and a more poppy feel throughout that almost verges on blink-182 sounds.

Silverstein released a brand new album on the 14th July through Rise as well, titled Dead Reflection which comes 17 years into their veteran career. Latest single Mirror Box was also put out at the same time, a song which demonstrates the band’s melodies while remaining heavy in many ways. Silverstein will be on tour in North America, UK and EU for the rest of the year so check out dates here.

Palisades have released a new music video, this time for their song Better Chemicals. It features on their self-titled third album which was released on the label earlier this year. The band are currently on tour with Japan’s ONE OK ROCK in the US, and will be returning to the UK in August for the annual Reading & Leeds festival.

Woke Up Waiting Announce New EP

Vancouver’s Woke Up Waiting have announced a new EP and will be the bands’ first as a trio.

Better Off This Way’ is set to be released on 20/10/2016 and will feature six tracks which are said to be a mix between party anthems, guitar-driven ballads and raw acoustic tracks.

Speaking about the EP; the band said “This EP will make you want to party, cry, fall in love, get out of love and anything and everything in between. It’s a true look at all three of us as individuals and the things we’ve experienced over the last few years of our lives”.

Coming together through unexpected circumstances, Woke Up Waiting are the result of several bands disbanding, and after the trio built up a following from performing covers of songs from popular pop-punk bands such as All Time Low, the trio are now ready to tackle the world of pop-punk with their own, party driven anthems.

Lead single from the EP ‘Best Of Me’ is available to check out below:
