Bruised Music Volume One delves into TENEMENT's deep and impressive catalogue to compile ten rare or out-of-print tracks from seven of the band's earliest tapes, EPs, and split singles. Bruised Music Volume One's tracks have all been re-mastered and feature vastly improved sound quality than their original releases. The collection will also include an eight page zine with liner notes and anecdotes from the band, their friends (including members of Screaming Females, Sundials, Coke Bust, and Nervosas), and journalists who championed the band during their inception. Bruised Music Volume One isn't just for the super-fan looking for a peek into TENEMENT's early years and the honing of their razor sharp song-craft, it also offers new listeners a great introduction to the band's perfect blend of raw punk energy and undeniable pop hooks.
