EPITAPH TO RE-ISSUE CLASSIC BLOOD BROTHERS RELEASES

Indie-hardcore Heroes' Influential albums Revisited and Re-issued
Like Never Before

October 20, 2009 - Los Angeles, CA. - Epitaph Records announces plans to re-issue The Blood Brothers' classic albums "Burn, Piano Island, Burn," "Crimes," "Young Machetes" and "March On Electric Children" on November 17. The CD and digital re-issues will include rare previously unavailable live tracks and videos, music videos and B-sides for the ultimate collectors' edition.

From 1997 to 2007, The Blood Brothers' "molotov mixture of suburb surrealism and sonic extremity" (Alternative Press, 2003) rocked and riveted critics and fans around the world. Formed in the suburbs of Seattle, the dueling singers Johnny Whitney and Jordan Blilie along with Cody Votolato (guitar), Morgan Henderson (bass) and Mark Gajadhar (drums) crafted a unique style of convulsive, ground breaking hardcore that was quickly embraced by critics and fans of punk, hardcore and indie rock.

Over their ten years in existence the quintet released five critically acclaimed studio albums (four of which Epitaph is re-issuing), including Burn, Piano Island, Burn, "the most prolific, beautiful, and vital statement of rock since the Stooges' Raw Power" (PopMatters, 2003), Crimes, the sturdiest bridge between the hardcore underground and indie-rock elitists" (Alternative Press, 2004) and "one of the best of 2006" (PopMatters, 2006), Young Machetes.

Having moved on to other projects, Whitney and Votolato with indie-rockers Jaguar Love and Blilie, Gajadhar and Henderson with post-punk outfit Past Lives, The Blood Brothers called it quits at their creative peak, leaving behind a catalog the helped define a genre and continues to influence bands around the world.

pretty awesome that they're re-issuing these, but i already own all of these on cd & vinyl, kind of unnecessary for me to pick them up again.. i don't really need the live versions, and i have the b-sides already. i'm glad these will be more readily available for anyone who hasn't heard or doesn't own them yet. such an influential and original band.

Holy shit! These re-issues are actually legit. I was thinking they were going to release some sub-par, greedy b.s. Oh wait, this isn't Victory.

Crimes looks the best. That album was so funky.
