Bad Brains To Reissue Their Back Catalog Via Bad Brains Records


Bad Brains have come into possession of the rights to a much of their back catalog and have launched their new Org Music imprint label Bad Brains Records for a series of upcoming reissues. To that end, the band and Org Music have enlisted Dave Gardner to remaster nearly every one of the releases with new vinyl, CD, cassette and digital releases planned. First in the series is a remastered reissue of “Pay To Cum” due out in February. Bassist Darryl Jenifer commented:

“Hey what’s up Bad Brains family – Darryl Jenifer here. I’m proud to announce to you the blessings and return of all Bad Brains master rights / recordings to Bad Brains and out of Babylonian captivity. These rights and other items include master reels, recently discovered photos, and etc. Thanks to JAH and all involved in this glorious feat. Stay tuned for the “re-everything” involved in all of our NINE studio albums and more. Big UP to Org Music for their faith, hard work, and dedication to BAD BRAINS RECORDS WE GOT THAT PMA 2020 and beyond.”

Org Music‘s Andrew J. Rossiter added:

“As longtime fans of the Bad Brains, it’s a huge honor and a pleasure to work with the group and reissue their seminal releases. It’s an incredible feeling to see the masters coming back to the band, with the records being issued on their own Bad Brains Records imprint. It’s been a long journey, often akin to a treasure hunt, uncovering lost master tapes, unreleased recordings, never before seen photos, and archives from decades past. We couldn’t be more excited to share the results with the world.”
