Atlanta’s straight edge hardcore stalwarts FOUNDATION have delivered one of the best and heaviest records of the year with their Bridge Nine debut, When The Smoke Clears. Described as “…pure, unadulterated hardcore with vicious breakdowns and pummeling rhythms” (Decoy Music), When The Smoke Clears pushes the band to the top of Bridge Nine’s hardcore heap – carrying the torch from alumni bands Champion and Have Heart. Foundation has already made their mark in the hardcore scene their short career thus far by playing in front of thousands of fans at music festivals such as United Blood (Richmond, VA), This Is Hardcore (Philadelphia, PA) Sound & Fury (Los Angeles, CA), Rain Fest (Seattle, WA) and many more. The band will play highly-coveted slots at those festivals in 2011 as well and will tour full-time in support of When The Smoke Clears. Recorded in December of 2010 at Ledbelly Studios with producer Matt Washburn (Mastodon, Norma Jean), Foundation’s debut full-length album is a must-have for any fan of hardcore, both past and present.
