Seattle's venerable post-hardcore five piece The Blood Brothers are celebrating two decades of their seminal album 'Crimes' with a limited vinyl reissue out on October 4th and the announcement of their first shows in ten years.

It feels both feral and weirdly focused, like whatever chemistry we'd been tinkering with had finally crystallized.

So, we'll be playing a handful of shows this fall. We hope to see you there." (continue)
