"We've come out of the studio full of fire and ready to blow everyone away. To sign to EMI, a legendary record company that fully understands what we want to do, is a privilege and we can't wait to get out on the road and give everyone a taste of what we've been up to. 2011 is going to be very exciting indeed!!"
Steve Pritchard, Senior Vice President of EMI Music UK, says, "There's been a lot of talk recently about the death of rock music, seemingly because the singles chart is full of pop acts. But rock and metal has always been about playing live and releasing albums that stand the test of time and the British metal scene is on fire at the moment.
"We're very proud to have signed Rise To Remain, one of the most exciting bands in the UK today who not only make music that sets them apart from their peers in its scope and ambition but have a live power that's unparalleled for a band their age. We look forward to watching them take the world by storm over the next few years."
