As 2013 comes to a close, we wanted to extend a very sincere THANK YOU to all of you that supported us this year (and every year). B9 had one of our busiest years yet - releasing new music from Alcoa, Hierophant, Octaves, New Found Glory, Lemuria, Nervous Impulse, Boysetsfire, Iron Chic, Alpha & Omega, Candy Hearts, Test of Time and others on various formats. We also got to watch our bands literally tour around the globe, play some of the best festivals in the world, and release some of our favorite albums! So grateful for the hardworking bands that call B9 home.

2014 is going to be crazy, you guys - new music from Silver Snakes, Backtrack, Goodtime Boys, Candy Hearts, DBD, H2O, and lots of other stuff we're very excited about that we can't tell you about yet. Wishing you all the safest and happiest of holidays.

Love,
B9
