Sometimes as a leader, sometimes as a sideman and collaborator; sometimes as an invisible musician but you’ve heard him: CHRIS COHEN has plied the inside and outside folds of pop musical possibility since at least 1978, when he first set infant drumstick to skin at the tender age of three, initiating decades of sonic experimentation across multiple bands and nearly a dozen recordings. Catch him out on tour now and hopefully hear “Drink From a Silver Cup” becuase you’ll only find this as part of the JOYFUL NOISE Flexi series!

EXPIRE return with their third full-length, “With Regret”. A little heavier and just as fierce as ever, the Midwest Blood champions cruise across sub-two-minute juggernauts purging their feelings on damaged relationships and introspective exorcisms. “With Regret “is the first EXPIRE album recorded outside of their mainstay studio. The new environment takes them out of their comfort zone and results in subtle new twists to the band’s sound, which bounces with a caustic, fraught anxiety, more memorable riffs, and focused vocals that retain all their previous bile and despair. BRIDGE 9 is your source for EXPIRE’s final album!!!
