Rise Records is an American indie label that was founded in 1991 by Craig Ericson in Nevada City, California. He released a small number of 7" records before putting the label on hiatus to attend college. Ericson didn't release anything further until 1999, after moving to Portland, Oregon. He began issuing small-print 7" records, and his first CD release came in 2000, from the group One Last Thing. The label helped to build a strong foundation for bands like Anatomy of a Ghost, Ever We Fall (who later signed with Hopeless Records) and Fear Before the March of Flames (who signed to Equal Vision Records). Later signings included artists like Breathe Carolina, The Devil Wears Prada, Drop Dead, Gorgeous, and more, which all gained considerable popularity while signed to Rise, and moved on to what were larger labels at the time (Interscope Records, Fearless Records and Ferret Records, respectively). Rise has also signed some veteran bands, including Hot Water Music, Bouncing Souls, The Bled, Bleeding Through and From First To Last.
Rise Records' releases are distributed in the U.S. by ADA and BMG. In July 2013, the company moved from Portland to neighboring Beaverton, Oregon. The label has a distribution deal with Alternative Distribution Alliance (ADA), the indie distribution company owned by Warner Music Group and directly in Europe and Australia with Warner Music and BMG.
In September of 2014, Australian label UNFD announced a distribution partnership with Rise and then in May of 2015, BMG announced the acquisition of the label. Rise maintains its headquarters and Ericson will remained in charge. BMG helps with back office operations and provides Rise a more international reach. In December of 2017, Craig Ericson announced his departure from the label. Rise Records is currently located in Los Angeles CA at 6100 Wilshire Blvd. FL. 16 and run by Sean Heydorn, who can be reached by email at email@example.com
Rise Records typically sticks pretty closely to releasing music from artists who fall within the genres of Indie-Rock, Pop-Punk, Emo, Screamo, Metal, Metalcore and hardcore. They do sometimes veer off this path for the right music by the right artist. For a full list of Rise Records releases check out their website and sign up for their mailing list.
