The Blood Brothers Celebrate 20th Anniversary Of ‘…Burn, Piano Island, Burn’ With Vinyl Release

The Blood Brothers were a once-in-a-generation band. A group unafraid of convention but fuelled by creative conviction, they crafted some of the finest and most forward-thinking post-hardcore that the turn of the millennium had. Their pride and joy, though, was ...Burn, Piano Island, Burn, released on 18 March 2003. A sassy, savage, sensational collection of tracks that defy logic and push boundaries, it is a time capsule of a moment when chaos ran wild and free. Dramatic, dense and decadent, it’s a stunning account of five people pushing each other to the limits of their imagination.

And to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the record, Epitaph Records are releasing a new vinyl pressing. Released on October 06, the deluxe edition will include the album on exclusive colored vinyl, an “Ambulance vs. Ambulance” 7 inch, and an expanded 32-page booklet with new liner notes and photos. A proper treat for anybody with an unbridled passion for the band.

The Blood Brothers’ Vocalist Jordan Billie had this to say on reflection of the album:

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.
