Since their inception in 1995, Bridge Nine Records has turned from a hobby to one of the biggest and best music brands in the world. What was once a once man operation has grown into a nine-person full-time operation headquartered in Peabody, MA (just outside the label's original home in Boston) with affiliates and distributors worldwide.

Bridge Nine's fiercely independent do-it-yourself work ethic is one of the biggest reasons the label has been able to persevere in a tumultuous music business climate in addition to growing significantly in a time when labels are contracting rapidly. The label has been featured in some of the biggest magazines in music today including Alternative Press and Revolver. Since 2007 the label has had six releases on Billboard's Independent, Heatseekers, and Top 200 charts-all the while remaining firmly true to the original spirit from which the label started.

Just fourteen years ago, an avid punk and hardcore music fan named Chris Wrenn started putting out 7inch records by some of his favorite local bands. 'The label started out pretty slowly', said Wrenn. 'I talked with some of my friends who were in bands and they said they'd be down to put out a 7inch. Over the next couple of years, I did whatever I could to try and raise money to continue to put out records. I designed shirts, stickers, and patches that I sold at shows to earn money to offset the printing costs and not much has changed today.' Having grown up in Connecticut in the 90's, which was a hotspot for hardcore, Wrenn had his finger on the pulse of the underground music scene. In 1994, Wrenn moved to Vermont and wanted something to keep him music-motivated while in college and decided to put out a split 7' record, the first official Bridge Nine release. One of the bands on it, Tenfold, became the foundation for In My Eyes and Fastbreak, both of which became really well-known in Connecticut and Boston hardcore scenes as well as nationally. Bridge Nine continued to grow, eventually releasing defining releases for American Nightmare (later Give Up The Ghost), Terror, and Champion. Today, Bridge Nine is a recognized brand worldwide as the best in hardcore with a roster boasting over a dozen full-time, active bands. 100+ releases and thirteen years later, Bridge Nine's back catalog boasts some of the biggest and best names in underground music and it continues to get stronger. 2008 alone saw defining and surprising releases from bands like New Found Glory and H2O, Have Heart, Crime In Stereo, Verse, Cruel Hand, Energy, Ruiner and Ceremony.

As owner Chris Wrenn said, 'Bridge Nine is a hardcore and punk based record label. It's important to us that all of our bands, while they may not sound alike, respect each other. And someone doesn't need to like every record we put out-but at least they will respect it-and that's important for us. Our objective is to put out quality recordings with the best current and up and coming hardcore bands out there. Hardcore today is a pretty broad grouping of styles and we like to mix it up. Our releases will reflect our tastes.'

2009 is turning into another stacked release schedule for Bridge Nine, featuring new releases by Polar Bear Club (called one of Alternative Press' most anticipated albums), boston up-and-comers Defeater (Travels is out February 24th as well as a new EP later in the year) along with follow up releases from Crime In Stereo (another AP Anticipated Album), Death Before Dishonor, Ruiner, and many more that we will be soon announcing. It's further proof of the diversity that Bridge Nine is no longer, nor has it ever been, as some morally and financially bankrupt buffoon recently stated, 'that label for kids who collect Nike Dunks.' Things are a bit different now, aren't they?

Polar Bear Club
Chasing Hamburg CD
Bridge 9 Records

Polar Bear Club is the best new band of 2009. The only other bands that come to mind who have received such intense praise and excitement after only one album are Against Me! and The Gaslight Anthem, but Polar Bear Club is a totally different deal. While their 2008 debut was called "essential" by Alternative Press, the follow-up, "Chasing Hamburg," is a powerful display of an incredible band that is bound by no genre such as "rock" or "post hardcore" or "punk," and, at the end of the day, their unique sound can only be described as "for fans of Polar Bear Club." Vinyl version includes digital download.

01. See The Wind

Rude Awakening
Collateral Damage CD
Bridge 9 Records

RA just finished recording their debut full-length, "Collateral Damage," with Dean Baltulonis at The Wild Arctic in Portsmouth, NH (Agnostic Front, Modern Life Is War, Sick Of It All). These ten songs have brutally honest lyrics that cover a wide range of topics and harsh truths with no holds barred. Musically, these songs are equally as punishing as RA puts an updated spin on heavy-hitting Connecticut and New York-style hardcore.


Tracklist:
01. Progression Through Aggression
02. Burning At Both Ends
03. Fence Walker
04. Black Widow
05. Path Of Destruction
06. Collateral Damage
07. Dragging The Anchor
08. Hypocrisy Among Us
09. Higher Power
10. Against The Grain

Soul Control
Cycles LP
Bridge 9 Records

Soul Control represents a new breed of hardcore. With the mid-'90s groove of Snapcase and simultaneously taking influence from the noisier and more experimental sounds of the AmRep and later SST catalogs, Soul Control takes influence from both eras and the end result is a band that sounds unlike anything today and anything in the last decade. They're on their own level and 'Cycles' is the debut album that will drive this point home. Vinyl version includes digital download.


Tracklist:
01. Beyond Words
02. Pursuing Ghosts
03. Like Spiders
04. Silent Reality
05. Playing Coward
06. You'd Sing Too

08. Flux
