Portland-based label Rise Records has announced the signing of Salt Lake City deathcore juggernauts CHELSEA GRIN. The band joins the label’s impressive roster that includes some of rock’s most innovative acts like OF MICE & MEN, MEMPHIS MAY FIRE, MISS MAY I and SLEEPING WITH SIRENS.
“Rise is very excited to welcome accomplished metal band CHELSEA GRIN to the family and to work with them as they start the next chapter!” says the label in a statement.
Adds the band: “CHELSEA GRIN is very excited to join the Rise Records family. Following the release of ‘Skin Deep’, we are fired up to bring our most aggressive release to date. With this new partnership, we feel a new level of excitement and plan on giving our fans the CHELSEA GRIN record they need to hear.”
CHELSEA GRIN got its start in 2007 and quickly became an unrelenting force in the metal scene with two EPs and three full-length records, including “Desolation Of Eden” (2010), “My Damnation” (2011) and “Ashes To Ashes” (2014). Over the years, they’ve toured with everyone from ATTILA, SUICIDE SILENCE and EVERY TIME I DIE to PARKWAY DRIVE, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER and OF MICE & MEN, amassing a legion of diehard fans along the way.
In February, CHELSEA GRIN will embark on a headlining North American tour where they’ll perform their coveted record “Desolation Of Eden” in its entirety. Support will be provided by OCEANS ATE ALASKA, LORNA SHORE and WAGE WAR.
