LIFE RUINER had announced that they had been signed by Rise Records, but several weeks later, it appears no longer to be the case:
“Some of you may have heard we signed to Rise Records. That was a very true statement, for about a week. Rise was incredibly excited, sent us a contract and we all signed it, but then later that week retracted the contract, saying they had heard rumours we were ruthless and a violent band. That being said, no we are not signed to Rise Records any longer. But hey it was a great week while it lasted. Don’t think we’re ready to throw in the towel! Because we are far from it. We’re in talks with a label right now, and if all goes well we will update you very soon.”
