The commemorative release of the Ross Robinson-produced effort celebrates an important contribution to 200’s era post-hardcore.
During their decade long run from 1997 through 2007, PNW post-hardcore practitioners The Blood Brothers released five critically acclaimed studio albums. Arguably among the most celebrated in their catalog is the pivotal 2003 full length, Burn, Piano Island, Burn.
Produced by Ross Robinson who helmed gamechanging efforts with the likes of The Cure, At The Drive In and Glassjaw just to name a few, the album was hailed for it’s cathartic brand of hardcore – one that resonated with fans and critics alike.
Marking two decades since the album’s release, The Blood Brothers have teamed with Epitaph Records to revisit the watershed moment with a limited collector’s edition release of Burn, Piano Island, Burn. The 20th Anniversary Limited Collector’s Edition package includes the album on colored vinyl variants, an “Ambulance vs. Ambulance” 7-inch as well as an expanded 32-page booklet with new liner notes and photos.
The Blood Brothers vocalist Jordan Blilie spoke of the scope of the project, “Listening to these songs twenty years later, I hear the sound of youth; of the world opening up. It’s unbridled, it’s overwhelming, and it’s relentless. None of it should’ve worked, and honestly, some of it doesn’t. But I’m proud of it for those exact reasons. That we stood there on the precipice, gazing into the unknown, and dove face first.”
The anniversary edition of Burn, Piano Island, Burn arrives October 6th via Epitaph Records.
