Braid Team Up with TopshelfFirst off: I can’t believe that’s a headline I just typed. We are beyond thrilled to announce that we’ll be working with seminal ‘90s emo indie-rock quartet Braid to release their upcoming full-length album. Set for a 2014 release, the new album will be the band’s first in 16 years and will follow their recent 2012 front-to-back Frame & Canvas tour.

I first heard about this band from a cassette mix tape my friend Greg made for a girl at his church camp over a decade ago. He somehow never managed to give her the tape so he gave it to me instead. My old ‘94 Dodge Ram van’s cassette player long ago ate up that tape, but the band has been a mainstay for both Seth and I ever since. We. Love. This. Band.

"We’re fans of all of the bands on Topshelf’s roster and love the spirit with which Seth and Kevin run the label. It feels great to be a part of such an energetic and youthful movement – one that is happening right now."
-Bob Nanna

In addition to the new album, Braid will also be headlining our CMJ showcase on October 19, 2013 with The Jazz June, Enemies, Caravels and Have Mercy. Tickets are on sale for that now.

More information on the band’s forthcoming album will be detailed soon. In the mean time, you can follow them on Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr & Twitter and also catch them on the following upcoming dates:
October 5, 2013 – Chicago, IL – Reggie’s Rock Club (Record Breakers 25th Anniversary Bash with All Eyes West and Break Anchor Suns)
October 19, 2013 – Brooklyn, NY – St. Vitus (Topshelf Records CMJ Showcase with The Jazz June, Enemies, Caravels and Have Mercy)
November 2, 2013 – Gainesville, FL – The Fest at the Florida Theatre of Gainesville (with Dillinger Four, Paint It Black, Night Marchers and BoySetsFire)
