Chicago-based rock label Victory Records has renewed its exclusive distribution agreement with Portland, Ore.-based Rise Records.

Victory has been the exclusive distributor of Rise albums in North America since early 2005. Under the terms of the renewal, Victory will now handle Rise albums in the U.K. and Australia.

Rise will issue a new album from budding metal act The Devil Wears Prada, "Plagues," on Aug. 21. The act's last set, "Dear Love: A Beautiful Discord," has sold 28,000 units to date in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan. Other Rise releases on the horizon include At the Throne of Judgment and Catherine.
