German label Exile On Mainstream has announced the signing of Danish metallers RISING. The band will enter the studio at the end of March to record its debut album with producer Jacob Reichert Nielsen for a late October release.

Since the release of RISING's debut EP in 2010, it has been both great and hectic for the band, with much time invested in writing and playing new material, and touring heavily. When Exile On Mainstream's staff first met the band in Copenhagen, supporting CELAN, they were instantly blown away. RISING were invited to play the label's massive South Of Mainstream Festival 2010, and on the spot they agreed to Exile On Mainstream's offer to release the band's debut album.

A Copenhagen-based three-piece, RISING creates its own brand of heavy, aggressive, atmospheric, yet melodic metal. Since forming in 2008, the band has sought to incorporate all virtues of good music: passion, vibe, energy, atmosphere and yes, firm musicianship and songwriting. Stylistically, the band incorporates metal, '70s hard rock, progressive and psychedelic rock, punk, sludge and more, creating music for the sake of music rather than submerging to any stylistic dogma, scene or specific genre.

The trio has been busy, having received a nomination at the Danish Metal Awards 2009 as "Best Metal Talent," a performance at Roskilde Festival 2010, two full European tours in March and September 2010 (both with Exile On Mainstream stalwarts BEEHOOVER) covering a good part of the continent, as well as many tour dates in Ireland, Sweden and their homeland Denmark.
