Epitaph Gives Blood Brothers the Royal Reissue Treatment

Epitaph Gives Blood Brothers the Royal Reissue Treatment
It's been nearly two years since spastic Seattle post-hardcore punks the Blood Brothers called it quits, but the band are still sorely missed. While members have moved on to form Jaguar Love and Past Lives, neither project has achieved the same critical or commercial success as the Blood Brothers. Thankfully, Epitaph will make an attempt to fill the void by reissuing deluxe versions of four of the band's five full-length albums.

While vinyl fans will fret that these reissues are only being made available on CD and digitally, the incredible amount of content included will make these worthwhile purchases no matter which format you prefer.

Burn, Piano Island, Burn kicks off the smattering of extras, as the two-disc set will include two bonus tracks, a music video and the band's DVD concert film Jungle Rules. Similarly, their follow-up records Crimes and Young Machetes will also come bundled with non-album tracks, live recordings and music videos. And despite March on Electric Children - the band's second LP overall - not coming with any extras, it's still a must-have for fans of the band's frantic style.

As far as release dates are concerned, all four reissues will be out via Epitaph on November 17.
