Earlier this week, we chronicled 15 notable reunions in Milwaukee music. Of those, none were more meaningful than the return of emo kingpins The Promise Ring, who remain one of emo’s most important acts and arguably the most significant band to ever come out of Milwaukee.
This morning, Jade Tree announced The Promise Ring would be returning again, at least to vinyl. For the first time in 15 years, The Promise Ring’s standout record, Nothing Feels Good, will be released on vinyl. The 1997 album will feature remastered versions of original source tapes. Speaking of tapes, the re-release will also extend to the cassette format. Pre-orders will begin tomorrow morning at 11 a.m. CST. Pitchfork claims the records and cassettes will be available in stores October 30. Pitchfork also just released video of a full Promise Ring show shot at Bowery Ballroom in 2000.
