Brandston's Fallen Star Collection rises for 20th anniversary limited edition release

’90s emo-punk favorites Brandtson are set to reissue their breakout sophomore album, Fallen Star Collection on October 31 via Steadfast Records.  Originally released on Deep Elm Records in 1999, the expanded edition finds a new home on the relaunched independent label operated by Brandtson’s Matt Traxler.
Cleveland’s Brandtson stood out in the late ’90s emo era with a pop-leaning punk sound highlighted by their intricate and infectious dual vocal harmonies and dueling guitar lines.  Fallen Star Collection was anthemic and passionate, dark yet hopeful, and retains a timeless quality that holds up today.
To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Steadfast Records is reissuing the album on vinyl for the first time in a limited edition that comes with a bonus CD that includes 10 previously unreleased demos as well as a 36-page lyric and photo book consisting of live, recording and tour photos specific to the era.  Additionally, the album will be issued on limited edition cassette.
The vinyl is limited to 500 total copies in the following variants:
“Waking Up To Yellow” (Opaque Bright Yellow) – 125
“Dead In The Water Blue” (Transparent Blue Swirl) – 125
Classic Black 150gm – 250
The very limited edition cassette version:
100 copies light blue shell cassettes, featuring the album
100 copies yellow shell cassettes, featuring the demo recordings
Also available are T-shirts, enamel pins and slip mats.
