Lemuria sign to Bridge 9

 Lemuria’s sweet sounding post-punk with pop sensibilities is unlike anything out there right now and for that reason, along with the band’s stellar and hard-working track record, is why Bridge Nine Records is excited to welcome them to the roster. Label owner Chris Wrenn said, "It’s important for us to have a diverse roster of artists and we feel like Lemuria compliments a lot of our other bands while standing strong on their own accord. We’ve had Get Better in rotation in the office here for a while and after adding two hardcore bands to our roster, Mother of Mercy and Foundation, we decided to change it up a bit and sign Lemuria. I think our roster really mirrors our collective musical tastes and it’s always exciting to expand on the types of music we release."

Formed in the summer of 2004, Buffalo’s Lemuria has garnered quite a bit of attention thus far in their career. The band has released a myriad of splits and 7"s (drummer Alex Kerns runs the label Art Of The Underground) and one full-length LP, Get Better, on Asian Man Records in 2008 that Punknews.org called the best debut full-length of the year. This July, Lemuria will hit the studio with producer J Robbins at the Magpie Cage in Baltimore, MD (Hey Mercedes, The Promise Ring, Jawbreaker) to record their yet-to-be-titled Bridge Nine debut. Drummer Alex Kerns said, "We are so proud to announce that Bridge Nine will be releasing our second full-length album. B9 is a family of great bands and great people and we are honored to be welcomed aboard. We can’t wait to get started recording this July with J Robbins from Jawbox right after we wrap up a full US tour."
