Song Premiere: "Breaking Ground" (Demo Version) by Brandtson

Brandtson - Fallen Star Collection Reissue Cover
26 September 2018

Brandston – Reissue album cover

Nineties emo-punk favorites Brandtson are set to reissue their breakout second album, Fallen Star Collection, on October 31st via Steadfast Records. Originally released on Deep Elm Records in 1999, the expanded edition finds a new home on the relaunched independent label operated by Brandtson’s Matt Traxler.

Cleveland’s Brandtson stood out in the late ’90s emo era with a pop-leaning punk sound highlighted by their intricate and infectious dual vocal harmonies and dueling guitar lines. Fallen Star Collection was anthemic and passionate, dark yet hopeful, and retains a timeless quality that holds up today.

To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Steadfast Records is reissuing the album on vinyl for the first time in a limited edition that comes with a bonus CD that includes 10 previously unreleased demos as well as a 36-page lyric and photo book consisting of live, recording, and tour photos specific to the era. Additionally, the album will be issued on limited edition cassette.

The vinyl is limited to 500 total copies in the following variants:
“Waking Up To Yellow” (Opaque Bright Yellow) – 125
“Dead In The Water Blue” (Transparent Blue Swirl) – 125 Classic Black 150gm – 250

The very limited edition cassette version:
100 copies light blue shell cassettes, featuring the album
100 copies yellow shell cassettes, featuring the demo recordings

Also available are T-shirts, enamel pins, and slip mats.

Pre-order at Steadfast Records

The Big Takeover is pleased to host the premiere of the demo version of “Breaking Ground”, one of the ten previously unreleased demos from the bonus CD. It’s bursting youthful energy and angst, raw and melodic, with passionately exclaimed vocals, crunchy guitars, a driving bass line, and an urgent drum beat. The demo actually has a brighter, sharper tone with the mix emphasizing the plaintive vocals.
