About:

It's been a while since we've announced a new signing, and we're FINALLY, FINALLY proud to announce that we've officially signed the South Shore's (let's just say Boston's) very own, Energy.

Energy has been cutting their teeth around the region over the last couple of years, recording their debut EP Punch The Clock with Jim Siegel at the Outpost in their hometown of Stoughton. Following the EP's release on Rock Vegas Records, they quickly started doing multiple tours up and down the East coast and into the midwest. Following the line–up changes that most new bands undergo, the band's lineup recently settled with singer Tank, guitarists Joe Freedman and Dan Mancini, bassist Conor O' Brien and recently acquired new drummer, Justin Flaherty. The band has shared the stage and shows with everyone from Death Before Dishonor, Strike Anywhere, Modern Life Is War, Agnostic Front, Ignite, Comeback Kid, Crime In Stereo, Converge, Set Your Goals, to just about everyone in between.

Owner Chris Wrenn said, "One thing at Bridge Nine is that we always listen to our bands, both past and present, about people to keep an eye on. Two years ago, we got a phone call from Aram [the man of Champion, Betrayed, and Armenian descent] saying 'there's this band you need to keep an eye on called Energy–they're from Boston, so you have no excuse.' After that call, it seemed I was always watching Energy open for one of our bands and they kept getting better and better to where we needed to bring them into the fold. They add something different to the Boston area scene, and we're stoked to have them in the mix."

ENERGY draws from a wide range of musical influence from Hardcore Punk bands like The Misfits, Rancid, AFI, 7 Seconds, Minor Threat and Black Flag, to other influences such as Weezer, The Smashing Pumpkins, The Beach Boys and The Cure.
