Bridge Nine Records is excited to announce the release of their Summer 2009 Compilation, featuring eight new and never-before-heard tracks as well as music from almost every active band on the B9 roster. Additionally, a one-time pressing of 1,000 copies of the summer exclusive tracks will be made available on the B9store on 45rm LP format for only $9. The amazing track list can be found below, and all new songs will be streaming at www.Bridge9.com/new_player beginning Friday, June 26th.
Why a physical CD compilation?
Bridge Nine owner Chris Wrenn stated, “The compilation with exclusive songs seems to have been lost to the internet. And with the popularity of the CD dwindling, it’s much easier to lean towards digital samplers. But we kept having people reference the 11-song comp we put out in 2006 and we decided it was time to put out something that was tangible this year that had rare and unreleased songs from new record we’re doing with Strike Anywhere, Polar Bear Club, Death Before Dishonor, Ruiner, Dead Swans Soul Control, Crime In Stereo and Have Heart along with a Paint It Black song only available on 7” or iTunes. And all of the songs are incredible.”
Aside from putting out one of the most kick-ass compilations this year, Bridge Nine Records is touring throughout the entire summer with the infamous Warped Tour. B9 will be setting up shop every day of the tour to bring shirts, CD’s and other merch to music fans across North America. Every morning, check out Bridge Nine’s Twitter page to find out where their booth is located, as well as the witticisms of the surly booth guy Chris Hayslett at www.twitter.com/bridge9.
The Bridge Nine Summer 2009 Compilation will be up for sale (or free with purchase) at Warped Tour or at http://www.b9store.com/ for $3 beginning this Friday.
