    From 1997 to 2007, The Blood Brothers' "molotov mixture of suburb surrealism and sonic extremity" (Alternative Press, 2003) rocked and riveted critics and fans around the world. Formed in the suburbs of Seattle, the dueling singers Johnny Whitney and Jordan Blilie along with Cody Votolato (guitar), Morgan Henderson (bass) and Mark Gajadhar (drums) crafted a unique style of convulsive, ground breaking hardcore that was quickly embraced by critics and fans of punk, hardcore and indie rock.

    Over their ten years in existence the quintet released five critically acclaimed studio albums (four of which Epitaph has re-issued), including Burn, Piano Island, Burn, "the most prolific, beautiful, and vital statement of rock since the Stooges' Raw Power" (PopMatters, 2003), Crimes, the sturdiest bridge between the hardcore underground and indie-rock elitists" (Alternative Press, 2004) and "one of the best of 2006" (PopMatters, 2006), Young Machetes.
