Cleveland’s Brandtson – favorites of the 90’s emo-punk era – stood out with a pop-leaning punk sound highlighted by their intricate and infectious dual vocal harmonies and dueling guitar lines. Led by the anthemic charge of “Blindspot” and the starkly evocative “January”; their debut album, Letterbox, is a love letter to the beginning phases of their marriage of pop-leaning hooks and their hardcore punk past.
Originally released on Steadfast Records in 1997 and reissued the following year on Deep Elm Records, the recently-revitalized Steadfast Records – operated by Brandtson’s Matt Traxler – is reissuing the album on limited edition vinyl and cassette for the very first time.
The vinyl is limited to 500 total copies, housed in a gorgeous gatefold jacket, featuring restored and expanded artwork from the original Steadfast Records release. Available in the following variants:
Still Life Green – 200
Bruised Blue – 200
150gm black – 100
The very limited cassettes are available in either blue or green and limited to 50 copies of each variant.
