Rude Awakening are set for their July 1st album release via Bridge Nine Records; stream Collateral Damage in the player below. The record is up for pre-order in different bundles on vinyl and CD.
R.A. is a straightforward, no-frills hardcore band from Merrimack Valley, Massachusetts. They formed in the summer of 2011 and released a demo on Arrest Records, followed by The Awakening EP and a split 12″ with Death Threat, both on local hardcore label Triple B Records. These releases were all well-received, each one even more than its predecessor, which led R.A. to tour extensively around hardcore circles in the US and Canada and to attract the attention of Bridge Nine Records. Now, the band is excited to call Bridge Nine their new home and even more excited to be releasing their first proper full-length album on the label on July 1st, 2014.
