We are SO EXCITED to launch the pre-orders for Foundation's Bridge Nine debut album When The Smoke Clears! Available for pre-order today is the album (Digital/CD/LP) alone or in a package deal with sticker and TWO posters - one 12x18 album poster and a HUGE 2x36 live poster. Not to mention, the vinyl for this release is pretty bitchin'... you'll see.
When The Smoke Clears officially hits stores on May 3rd, and the fine folks at Alternative Press Magazine had this to say about the record:
"Straight-edge hardcore: three words absolutely revered in the mid-90s before becoming the butt of many a scene joke in the 2000s. So where does that put us now? In the case of Atlanta’s Foundation and their Bridge Nine debut, it puts us right back in the pit, flapping our arms like gorillas with huge, black Xs on our hands. These guys have encapsulated the spirit of 90s straight-edge bands like Unbroken, Chokehold and Strain (remember them, please?) and added an extra level of rage and heaviness not found in their predecessors. Sure, nothing will eve match the first time we heard a band like Chokehold play their straight-edge chorus breakdowns, but Foundation have modern production values on their side. And a pit-gang of gonads, to boot."
Foundation has a hometown record release show in Atlanta on April 30th with INDECISION that should be a banger, and they'll tour with Shai Hulud followed by Mother of Mercy (&others) throughout May and June. Check the dates out here
