Max Bemis of Say Anything has launched an imprint with Equal Vision Records, dubbed Rory Records. The first band to join the imprint is Tampa, Florida-based Tallhart. Bemis had this to say about the group:

"They are TALLHART. A brilliant young band from Tampa who can write a stadium rock-level anthem like nobody's business but don't shy away from lovely, dense songwriting. They also put on a sickeningly great live show,” Bemis expounds. “To me, they combine the best elements of early U2, Manchester Orchestra and sort of a young Pearl Jam (that last one is a pretty weird call, but I stand by it): basically, smart and brave music, rich with a swelling, unfiltered feeling. I'll be working closely with them on many aspects of their music and the record, and am extremely excited for the release of their EVR/Rory Records debut EP."

The band's debut EP for Rory/EVR is slated for a spring release; the first single, "Fever (Sister Of Mine)," will be digitally released March 6. The band's upcoming tour dates with Eisley and Say Anything can be seen below.
