It's not the second biggest travesty, it's the biggest, bar none! The wanker(s) at Maverick responsible for this criminal act should be shot. "Future Unknown", if it had been released last October, would have been one of the best albums of the last five years, phenomenal vocals from Michael Lee, fantastic music and songwriting, this has it all.
The bands website www.therisingmusic.com staes that a new site, The Risingband.com is coming soon, so all is not lost. Wether they are able to release "Future Unknown" thenselves or through another label remains to be seen but at least the band seems to still be together. I e-mailed Maverick last year when they had dropped them but got no response, so as far as i know there has never been an explanation why this happened.
For the time being i'll treasure the six tracks i have got and live in hope that someday the album will see the light of day so that everyone can get to hear this masterpiece.
