Rise Records has snapped up pop-punk outfits Man Overboard and Transit. The label had this to say about the signings:

These two bands are very special in the music scene and Rise Records is honored and privileged to be able to release their future material. Man Overboard (New Jersey) will release a 7" via Rise on February 22nd which will tide fans over until their full-length drops next Fall. Transit (Massachusetts) will be busy touring and writing songs for their next full-length which will be due out in the Fall as well.

The two bands just kicked off a European tour together.
