Yet another Denver band has officially been spoken for, and for once, the rumors were actually true: Breathe Carolina has indeed inked a deal with Rise Records, the Oregon-based imprint that previously released the debut recordings of Fear Before the March of Flames and Drop Dead, Gorgeous.
Although touring from now until eternity (seriously, take a look at their Myspace page), the guys somehow found time to record a full-length, It's Classy, Not Classic, which is due out on Rise on September 16. And from the sounds of it, Kyle and Dave are happier than pigs in poo about the whole thing.-- Dave Herrera
