Rise Records signs Legend

Official press release: Rise Records is pleased to announce the signing of Detroit, Michigan's, Legend. Featuring former For The Fallen Dreams vocalist Chad Ruhlig, Legend is stomping out of the gate determined and ready to bring the heavy. Vocalist Chad Ruhlig states, "We are extremely excited to announce our signing with Rise Records. Having done work with Craig Ericson and Rise before, we couldn't think of anybody else we would rather work with than Rise. We will be hitting the studio in January and this will hands down be the heaviest album of 2010. You can be sure of that." The group will enter the studio in January 2010 under the complete mastery of Zeuss at Planet Z Recording in Hadley, Massachusetts. Their debut album is set to release in April of 2010. Keep an eye out for constant touring before then and check their MySpace often for new updates and new songs. Craig Ericson, owner of Rise Records says, "I've been a huge fan of Chad ever since he was in For The Fallen Dreams. He's an amazing front man and performer. I'm very excited about his new band and was thrilled that Rise was able to sign Legend." Check out the band at

Hakuna_Matata 11/18/2009 10:03:29 PM

great, more acacia strain wannabes

blankz 11/18/2009 10:07:05 PM

they sound exactly the same as ftfd. and it`s not just cuz of the original vocalist. musically...exact same. terrible band. fck off rise.

beatyourfuckingface 11/18/2009 10:09:10 PM

and agreed. they do wanna sound just like the acacia strain. exactly what i thought when i first heard their music. and their bass player is a fcking homo for getting a mongoloids tattoo on his forehead.

i just checked them out and they actually rule FTW.

grundle_sweat 11/18/2009 11:26:22 PM

LOL @ FACE AND NECK TATS this band is actually bury your dead volume 2.

guitarist_sandy 11/18/2009 11:41:41 PM

I actually dig them. Sure, they sound like old ftfd, and just about every drop A 6 string band ever, but it's good.

lawlziez 11/18/2009 11:55:43 PM

Seems like Rise is turning into Metal Blade. Signing a band every fcking week.

thehays 11/19/2009 12:07:02 AM

for what they do, this band is fcking top notch. great signing for rise, stoked to see them at the end of the month!

nahbrahdood 11/19/2009 12:18:22 AM

This shit is such a 2nd rate (and thats bad) Bury your Dead.

m_kwd 11/19/2009 12:27:26 AM

i LOVE that movie! we sampled it at the beginning of our 3rd album!! yeah, the movie rules. go TOM CRUISE!

sgt_grumbles 11/19/2009 12:59:10 AM

A great stride in modern nu-metal

This is hell, the only good band on rise

niceguy 11/19/2009 2:00:21 AM

more people need to be commenting on the bass player. that kid's parents paid for all his siq tatz. hilarious shit. kid got punked out at a show in cincinnati and moved to detroid like a week later.

sgt_grumbles 11/19/2009 3:00:17 AM

Oh, that's a shame, they took down the song with the fcking rap in it.

BONER_JAMZ 11/19/2009 3:29:50 AM

nice guys for the most part. *mists water*

tinysamoan 11/19/2009 4:09:39 AM

cool niceguy. Nice to know that you're so in the "scene". drop dead. Good dudes.

balls_rich 11/19/2009 4:33:15 AM

every time a member from a band on rise records quits their band and starts a new band rise is so fast to offer said new band a contract. fck this label, they only put out the shittiest flavor of the week trash.

brown_town 11/19/2009 8:10:45 AM

BONER_JAMZ 11/19/2009 3:29:50 AM nice guys for the most part. *mists water*

breakdatback 11/19/2009 9:21:05 AM

numetal poser band wishes they were hardcore

meanmuggin 11/19/2009 9:28:10 AM

I'm so stoked, this is next level mosh right here.

xdumbcorex 11/19/2009 9:37:17 AM

ALL HYPE! they've only been playing shows for a few months and they immediately get signed because Chad is what made For The Fallen Dreams worth listening to. Smash Your Enemies is better than them

shit_spasm 11/19/2009 10:28:07 AM

i thought he left for the fallen dreams because he couldn't handle touring. he always left early or didnt play shows randomly....

LEGEND_hater 11/19/2009 10:45:59 AM

fck scott sparks, if he hadn't ran out of warsaw so fast last time in cincy he would have been curbstomped. next time for fckin sure

LEGEND_hater 11/19/2009 10:46:27 AM

Bassist gets jumped a few times for runnin his little teenage mouth, moves to Detroit sucking Chad's dck like everybody else trying to get in a shit band.

Cincinnati_CC 11/19/2009 10:57:40 AM

this is true, big things are going down on December 7th, Warsaw Arena.

hot4you814 11/19/2009 11:02:38 AM

mikediaz 11/19/2009 1:46:22 AM This is hell, the only good band on rise this is hell has been on think fast for awhile now.

C_Alsip 11/19/2009 11:10:21 AM

a lot of shit being talked around Cincy, booking the legend tour for warsaw is turning high risk

loki 11/19/2009 11:10:37 AM

Legend is stomping out of the gate determined and ready to bring the heavy. Legend is stomping out of the gate determined and ready to bring the heavy. Legend is stomping out of the gate determined and ready to bring the heavy.

Cincinnati_CC 11/19/2009 11:18:57 AM

Chris, just let it happen. Promoters don't need to worry about the security of their bands, just keep the show and leave the rest to us

alxrights 11/19/2009 11:23:52 AM

wonder if hes gonna quit this band for that hot little girl of his this time

LEGEND_hater 11/19/2009 11:29:02 AM

don't worry lambgoat this band will break up soon after being jumped multiple times

tidotot 11/19/2009 11:29:17 AM

Theyre good bass player does suck tho grew up in the suburbs of cincy yet claims to be hard and from the streets what a joke...use to have chad in his hero sections a cpl years ago.

thehays 11/19/2009 11:35:02 AM

LOL @ kids making usernames just to comment about how much they hate the bass player

Cincinnati_CC 11/19/2009 11:35:55 AM

titodot is completely correct, except they aren't good. But yes, bassist is the biggest gay of all time. Mommy and daddy pay for his tattoos

thatbigtonyguy06 11/19/2009 11:43:36 AM

the same dude is making multiple usernames JUST to talk shit haha what a PATHETIC attempt to stir things up. LEGENDHATER, CINCI_CC, C_ALSPI ARE THE SAME PEOPLE an all new low lambgoat.

LEGEND_hater 11/19/2009 11:46:04 AM

so because a few people share a common negative opinion you assume we are the same? You are obviously a member of Legend trying to cover up the hatred towards you gays

LEGEND_hater 11/19/2009 11:48:06 AM

especially since ThatBigGuyTony is a new profile just registered today. Hello member of Legend, and I hope your van flips

beatyourfuckingface 11/19/2009 11:54:23 AM

i'd love nothing more than to beat the living fck out of their bass player and rip his shitty tattoo off his forehead.

tidotot 11/19/2009 11:56:24 AM

legend_hater why are you spending so much time on commenting their shit. really letting their good news consume your life? we get it theyre bass players a retard we all know that

xfordirelifesakex 11/19/2009 12:23:27 PM

At least all the hatred seems to be aimed at just chad and scott. Nobody seems to know or care who the other dudes are haha.

lordrinso 11/19/2009 12:27:49 PM

Show will go on w/ no problems because there are never problems at shows in Cincy anymore. Lame bogus profiles prove how worthless the individuals making them are. Losers for real.

tidotot 11/19/2009 12:29:05 PM

not even towards chad. just scott. sucks they have such a shitty dude in their band cus noone is focusing on the music.

thatbigtonyguy06 11/19/2009 1:03:27 PM

LOL@ legend_hater, pretty sure that chris alsip guy tour manages them.

swollen_shut 11/19/2009 2:43:33 PM

Another overly hyped for no goddamn reason mi band. Lol at their ego inflated ms profile.

LEGEND_hater 11/19/2009 2:44:07 PM

I'm not complaining about the band, they're a Bury Your Dead rip off but who cares Nobody on here has been complaining about anybody except their gay bass player. Chad is ok. Scott is a punk ass teenager

wookiefan85 11/19/2009 2:50:20 PM

Im pretty sure Chad is mexican....... Latino Flip

grundle_sweat 11/19/2009 2:52:45 PM

LEGEND are on a path of devastation that will leave the naysayers wishing they hadn't second guessed just how severe this mid-western five piece truly is. LOL @ BAND'S ABOUT ME

beatyourfuckingface 11/19/2009 3:02:21 PM

grundle_sweat are you gonna make that a sticker for their first and only release off of rise?

analblowjobs 11/19/2009 4:24:34 PM

LEGEND_hater isn't stoked.

shots 11/19/2009 4:40:36 PM

these guys look like the bad guys cronies from a new james bond movie

big_metal_al 11/19/2009 5:32:25 PM

Ya know, I dig this. I liked Chad in FTFD.

motherfackingzambie 11/19/2009 6:07:24 PM

Tell me which one is from Detroit? these gays spit more water at a show than Triple H

motherfackingzambie 11/19/2009 6:15:54 PM

I'm going to start a band called "Myth" and wear all white and spit fire to one up these guys.

motherfackingzambie 11/19/2009 6:16:49 PM

Ante up 456

scatwow 11/19/2009 6:24:23 PM

i wanted to fck her when i met her when he played for ftfd...jus sayin!

beatyourfuckingface 11/19/2009 8:14:37 PM

did they all move to detroit and start this band to try to seem tougher?

LEGEND_hater 11/19/2009 10:34:19 PM

their bassist does have a good point, the more we comment this shit the more people are noticing a useless sack of shit band. nevermind. they just suck. the end

jerm 11/20/2009 12:01:14 AM

only true gays hate this band

xxxbenxxx 11/20/2009 2:47:34 AM

All the commenting is just hyping this band. All I can think is they are going to be the next liferuiner on lambgoat. God...

devisator007 11/20/2009 3:11:14 AM

youre forgetting liferuiner is a bunch of kids, from what i know legend are a bunch of legit dudes. just happens they have a retard playing bass that kids hate. big woop wouldnt be the first band. i dig this band.

devisator007 11/20/2009 3:15:52 AM

the other guys in the band are well respected dudes all over by alot of people, its a shame that this kid playing bass is taking away from there good news and people sticking to the music.

shitdick 11/20/2009 6:20:08 AM

these dudes are not well respected. you fcking dipshit.

bennetbrower 11/20/2009 3:00:48 PM

fcking sick neck tats and dropped tuned ESP’s bro All of these kids are unemployable and will regret this when they turn 25

viviennewestwood 11/20/2009 4:31:16 PM

their moms took them to forever21 to shop for theyr promos.

analblowjobs 11/20/2009 6:29:17 PM

i wish i could be like their bass player.

TylerKraken 11/21/2009 2:01:06 AM

by far some of the best stage presence and music ive seen. not to mention that they all are some cool fcking dudes. FTFD isnt even close to comparable with Legend. These guys will go far and im glad to see they got signed early on in their career.

fcmf_jeff 11/21/2009 12:03:34 PM

I'm down with it. Bury your dead/cover your tracks was so good idk how there haven't been more bands playing good mosh tunes. I support. Also, saw dylan shaved his head, more chad less oliver ish. Good call.

sgt_grumbles 11/21/2009 7:07:23 PM

by far some of the best stage presence and music ive seen. - consisting of spitting water, running in place, and playing open chugs. Apparently, you haven't seen much.

takethesceneburnitdown 11/23/2009 7:49:21 PM

Just saw them a couple months ago, fcking gays. Most boring music I have ever heard and all those wannabe tough pieces of shit just walked around all rockstar like. Vanflip times a thousand.

urine_for_a_treat 11/23/2009 9:13:33 PM

despite all the shit-talking, this band is actually pretty righteous. reminds me of when Bury your Dead was still (somewhat) relevant

xbeefjerkyx 11/27/2009 3:07:42 AM

fck all these haters...
