The Rise were from Austin, Texas. They broke up a long time ago and left us with loads of 12″s we couldn’t afford to get to the states. It’s a shame cos they were one of the best hardcore bands we ever heard and reminded us of a more positive, productive message that used to be carried in punk and hardcore. You can buy the record ‘Reclamation Process’ still in our store. Member’s Cory and James Welch now make music under the guise of OCELOT. Other members went off to play for …And You Wil Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, Juliette and The Licks and The AM Syndicate.
