Will Yip explains,
â€œThis comp represents everything that Iâ€™ve done in the past ten years of my life.Â I want to give the punk, hardcore, and alternative community of awesome bands a home.”
Off the BoardÂ will be released worldwide October 8th, 2013 and will only be available for a limited time. There are multiple pre-order options on the website, featuring colored vinyl presses and T-shirts. Fans will also able to purchase tickets for an inaugural Studio 4 Sessions with Anthony Green and special guests Tigers Jaw on September 20th and 21st.
“This compilation is about family. It’s the coming together of a tight knit community made up of the best bands and friends I know all in one place. Every band is helping me create a permanent production home our music scene has never had before. We’re making the legendary Studio 4 ours…a home and one of a kind environment where we can forever be able to create the best possible product without limitations.”
