v/a - The First Nine Years
"The First Nine Years" chronicles the modest beginning of the Bridge Nine record label. Spread over five 7" records, these 29 bands become the soundtrack to the 128 page companion book packed with many never-before-seen photos, telling the story of how the label got its start, how relationships forged in high school lead to its earliest releases, and how each band was connected to the next by a single degree of separation as Bridge Nine's reach expanded from a few local bands to having one of the most actively touring rosters in the underground, building awareness for the label worldwide. "The First Nine Years" details the many opportunities and obstacles that the label faced during its earliest era, while building a foundation to support the over 100 artists who have called Bridge Nine home, and the over 250 releases that they've recorded for the label in the years since. 7" Box Set includes digital download. Limited edition of 500 copies on yellow vinyl, exclusive to Rev.
