Following years of strict dedication to the easily digestible EP format, BNLX dove headfirst into the full-length for the first time last year when they put out their fantastic debut LP, and celebrated that release with a brilliant two-night BNLXFest at Cause that not only featured two blistering performances from the Minneapolis trio but a slew of veteran and emerging bands who energetically represented the past, present, and future of the Twin Cities music scene.
Now, the Ackersons (Ed, Ashley, and Wiggy) and Dave Jarnstrom are set to release another BNLX full-length, Gesammelte Produkt (Collected Product), collecting 14 stellar tracks from their out-of-print early EPs for the first time on vinyl, as well as one brand new song, "Opposites Attract" -- a track premiering here today at Gimme Noise. We're also debuting the music lineup for BNLXFest II at Cause on November 15-16.
Here are the lineups for BNLXFest II, with Saturday night including one special surprise guest that BNLX frontman Ed Ackerson can only assure us that, "It's not Prince."
Friday, November 15:
Wiping Out Thousands
Blue Sky Blackout
with special guest DJ Jake Rudh, who will be spinning some stellar tunes throughout the night and "other surprises you'll have to be there to witness"
Saturday, November 16:
--very special guest--
The new BNLX LP, Gesammelte Produkt (Collected Product) (that's the adorable looking cover above) will be available at these shows, as well as an exclusive, local-only early release of the new BNLX EP #8, which will be released nationally in January of 2014. The new LP will also include a download card featuring the entire BNLX EP collection, with all 32 tracks newly remastered specifically for this release.
BNLXFest II sounds like a smashing good time with a collection of top-notch bands who are bound to make both nights memorable.
