Earlier this year the members of old school Santa Cruz hardcore act Bl’ast! unearthed vintage master tapes, and upon digging into the vat, discovered an entire album’s worth of material that was never released. Additionally, the recordings were from a rare lineup in the band’s lineage, being the only recordings ever made while short-lived second guitarist William Duvall — Neon Christ, and currently the vocalist for Alice In Chains — was a part of the BL’AST! family. To help resurrect the deteriorated recordings, Southern Lord recruited Dave Grohl, who completely remastered/mixed the tapes at his famed 606 Studios, on the legendary Neve console as featured in the recent Grohl-produced documentary Sound City. Now fully harnessed and ready to hit the streets as “Blood!” — the first BL’AST! album to see release since their 1989 “Take The Manic Ride” LP — this long-lost collection of prime, influential skate/surf hardcore punk anthems will become available in North America on September 3rd on Southern Lord.
Formed in 1982, BL’AST! released their debut album, The Power of Expression in 1985.
