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 hit the studio with producer J Robbins at the Magpie Cage in Baltimore, MD (Hey Mercedes, The Promise Ring, Jawbreaker) to record their 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." This will be Lemuria's first Philadelphia show following the release of their second LP, "Pebble"!
Ma Jolie is a band from Philadelphia in the vein of Superchunk, Samiam and shit that sounds like that . With members who have all been in multiple active bands, they put together a collection of songs that bring to mind the best of the late 90s punk world. Combining tight, fun rhythms, clever guitar hooks, and catchy vocals, they recently recorded their first record at the Headroom Studio in Philly. They are looking forward to releasing the record soon, but for now, the entire record is available for download on their Bandcamp page - http://majolie.bandcamp.com/
Omar is a two piece rock band from Philadelphia. Recently reunited after two long years apart, and they couldn't feel better about it. Candice plays guitar, Nick plays drums, they both sing, and it is called Omar.
