The Black Bag Media Collective is proud to announce the long awaited, much anticipated full length album release from St. John’s’ own rock/punk/rock band The Black Bags (Liz Solo, Mike Kean, Marcel Levandier). Produced by Jody Richardson (Pathological Lovers, Fur Packed Action) and Grant King (Pathological Lovers) the album is coming out on CD and on Vinyl and features 11 songs described by Damian Lethbridge of the Scope.ca as “track after track of pure rock goodness”.

Their much anticipated, self-titled debut was recorded this year by Jody Richardson and Grant King of Pathological Lovers, and it sounds absolutely stunning. Beautifully produced and mixed, the record fuses the grungy sound of the early to mid-nineties St. John’s scene with more modern pop-punk sensibilities… Another great element of The Black Bags sound is the trade off of vocal duties between Liz and Marcel. Although the two alternate as lead singers, its when they come together on tracks such as Never Get Enough and Everything is Leaking that they really shine. From the crisp drums and stuttering bass line of opener Kelowna Rocks, The Black Bags come out swinging and plow through track after track of pure rock goodness.
