BRAID - FRAME & CANVAS VINYL (LTD. 25TH ANN. ED. SILVER GATEFOLD)
LIMITED 25TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION SILVER VINYL GATEFOLD
Release Date: 7th April 2023
"To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Braid’s iconic 1998 album, Frame & Canvas, Polyvinyl and the band are thrilled to announce a new version of the album, completely remixed, remastered, and repackaged for 2023. Originally recorded and mixed in the span of just 5 days with producer J. Robbins (The Promise Ring, Against Me!) at Inner Ear Studios in Arlington, VA, Frame & Canvas would eventually become a genre-defining staple and essential listening for indie/emo fans. Since its release, the album has received praise from outlets such as Stereogum and Rolling Stone, who ranked it at #5 on their “Top 40 Emo Albums of All Time” list. The band would go on to play hundreds of shows across the globe in support of Frame & Canvas from 1998- 99 before disbanding roughly a year after the album’s release. Braid’s influence on the numerous bands and DIY scenes that arose in their wake is vast and undeniable. Remixed by J. Robbins and remastered by Dan Coutant (with vinyl mastering by Bob Weston), the 25th anniversary edition has also been repackaged for a deluxe vinyl release, featuring expanded artwork and additional liner notes written by each band member."
