Christian Metal Band BRIDE Gets Two Classic Albums Re-Issued
Snakes in the Playground & Kinetic Faith coming on Vinyl and CD
Wilmington, NC – Feb. 15, 2021 — Girder Records is proud to announce the re-release of two of Christian rock’s most iconic albums from Christian metal band Bride. Snakes in the Playground and Kinetic Faith will be completely remastered and released on CD as well as colored vinyl on May 21, 2021 with pre-orders starting on Feb 26, 2021. It will mark the first time that these classics have been made available in the vinyl record format.
Kinetic Faith was released in 1991 with Snakes in the Playground following in 1992 and were the band’s two most successful albums garnering mainstream attention and radio airplay across the world. The band received three DOVE AWARDS™ for HARD MUSIC RECORDED SONG OF THE YEAR: two songs from the album Snakes in the Playground - “Rattlesnake” and “Psychedelic Super Jesus,” as well as one song from Kinetic Faith - “Everybody Knows My Name.”
Brothers Dale and Troy Thompson started off as MATRIX recording Monkey See Monkey Do and PG-13 in the early 80’s but in 1986 changed their name and BRIDE was born. Kinetic and Snakes were their fourth and fifth albums after Show No Mercy (1986), Live to Die (1988) and Silence Is Madness (1989), and a "best of" featuring two new songs, End of the Age (1990).
Bride has recorded/released a whopping 24 albums. Vocalist Dale Thompson has been touted by many as the “hardest working singer in Christian music.” Dale has always been able to level surreal screams that are perfectly on pitch and in-tune despite traveling relentlessly in support of these albums and others throughout the years. It is no surprise that Bride amassed a fan base that began in the USA and stretched all the way to Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, and throughout Europe. The demand for their music is still growing. These 30th Anniversary remastered albums are exactly what fans have been asking for.
Put the date on your calendar and get ready to rock. Pre-Orders for these iconic albums will begin on Feb 26th, 2021 at our website www.girdermusic.com.
