Craft Recordings Remasters Boysetsfire Albums For First-Ever Vinyl Release

Arriving today, December 6th are the first-ever vinyl releases of the albums "After The Eulogy" and "Tomorrow Come Today" from the hardcore punk band, Boysetsfire. The band released their first EP in 1994, but didn't break out into the mainstream until the release of their second full-length album "After The Eulogy" in 2000. The album featured the hit song "Rookie," which was featured in a couple video games and commercials. This album was a political push for the band that got them noticed in Europe, as not just another punk band, but one with a message of truth.

Their follow-up album "Tomorrow Come Today" carries a more melodic tone to their songs, with the help of producer Dave Fortman (Slipknot, Evanescence). Boysetsfire's energy and rage was still present on this album, but their edginess was smoothed out to make the songs more accessible for modern rock radio. Two of the songs ("Handful Of Redemption" and "High Wire Escape Artist") were featured in video games and movie soundtracks. Just three years later, the band would call it quits, before reforming in 2010 to play a handful of shows.

Boysetsfire are currently wrapping up their European fall tour with two more shows in Germany, before eventually heading into the studio to record their next studio album. These two new vinyl releases of "After The Eulogy" and "Tomorrow Come Today" were remastered by Grammy Award-winning engineer Paul Blakemore and feature new liner notes and interviews from the band. Each album will also be released as a limited edition colored vinyl available on the band's website (endhitsrecords.com). To find out more about these two new vinyl releases from Boysetsfire, please visit the Craft Recordings website (craftrecordings.com).
