Rise was founded in 1991 by Craig Ericson in California. He released a small number of 7" records before putting the label on hiatus to attend college. He didn't release anything further until 1999, after moving to Portland, Oregon. He began issuing small-print 7" records, and his first CD release came in 2000, from the group One Last Thing. The label gave a strong foundation to bands Ever We Fall who later signed with Hopeless Records and Fear Before the March of Flames who signed to Equal Vision Records. The label's releases are now being distributed nationwide by Victory Records. The label is currently made up of 20 bands and 1 solo artist.
