Rude Awakening Sign With Bridge Nine Records


Massachusetts hardcore outfit R.A. (Rude Awakening) have signed with Bridge Nine and aim to have their full-length debut “Collateral Damage” out through the label this summer. The band recently finished tracking it with producer Dean Baltulonis (Madball, This Is Hell) at The Wild Arctic in Portsmouth, NH. Band vocalist Josh Hynes commented:

“I was first introduced to Bridge Nine as a kid, right when the label started in the late 90’s, and remember picking up the Proclamation 7″ and being hooked right away. It was awesome being able to see the label grow from an underdog label into what it has become today. Throughout the past sixteen years, B9 has put out some of my favorite releases so it is a real humbling experience signing to a label that I was brought up on. As with most labels, it has grown and branched out, but still remains very much a part of the hardcore scene which it was founded on and we as a band couldn’t be happier being here.”
