Pure Noise Records and Pabst Blue Ribbon have teamed up to present ‘Dead Formats Volume 1’, a 15-track compilation featuring the Pure Noise Records roster sharing their takes on the celebrated punk/emo/ska songs that helped shape the scene in the 90s and 2000s. Today, fans can listen to ‘Brain Stew/Jaded’ by Four Year Strong and ‘Fell In Love With A Girl’ by LURK, which are found on the compilation.
“Green Day rules. They were the first band I liked. Hearing ‘Brain Stew’ for the first time, I thought, ‘if that’s what guitars sound like, then I want to play guitar” says Four Year Strong vocalist and guitarist Dan O’Connor.
‘Dead Formats Volume 1’ will be available for pre-order soon, with the full track listing to be revealed. Pre-orders will include an exclusive Pabst Blue Ribbon/Pure Noise Records merch collaboration.
“We’re so excited about this partnership. There are a lot of shared values between Pure Noise and PBR – independence, grit, and being a sort of DIY underdog. We just love their energy, their roster of bands and artists, and feel grateful that they’ve invited us to collaborate on the idea and execution of this comp” shared Nick Reely, VP of Marketing, PBR.
