Like Moths To Flames Part Ways With Rise Records

During a chat on the BREWtally Speaking Podcast, Like Moths To Flames vocalist Chris Roetter confirmed that the band are no longer on Rise Records. Despite this, the group have been demoing new material lately.

Roetter said the following:

“This is actually the first time that the band’s been doing adequate demos. Like we would do ‘oh, man, check out this riff with these shitty drums.’ We actually paid our own money, went and did some demos.

So we’re actually taking the writing very seriously this time. We’re actually not on Rise anymore. This is the first time we are gonna be doing… not something on our own, we’re just kinda in-between right now.

…What I’d said about ‘Dying Things‘, about how we feel about the last few releases was just an extension of that, unfortunately, where… I’m not trying to blow up anybodies spot, but I personally feel like we were backburnered a little bit.

We’re an easy band to please, cause we do a lot of things ourselves. So it’s like when we ask for minimal things, that was us getting help. Instead of it helping the band, it was like ‘welp here’s us giving you aid and that’s it.’

So I think for us it’s kinda lit a fire to be the best that we can be. Having new members definitely makes it easier. People would be like Moths has had 7-8 members, is it hard? It’s like no, because people keep leaving that made it hard.

Then we bring in people who are ambitious about the band, who want to grind and write… It’s almost like let me prove my worth type of thing. The dudes have gone way beyond that.”

He continued:

“So this time around, we’re not even planned on doing a record, and we already got 7-8 songs written, and 3 of them are professionally recorded.

They’ve got production, they’ve got ear candy, they’re properly engineered. Not just us doing them in our garage.

So it’s just like kind of us making sure we got the ammunition for when we do start to figure out where the bands gonna go, what we’re gonna do after this tour.”
