In the fall of 2004, then Boston-based Junius released their first EP, Forcing Out The Silence. Since then, Junius has toured around the world many times over and released numerous other EP’s, splits and full-lengths. This EP has long been out of print and the quartet have teamed up with Science of Silence Records to bring the Forcing Out The Silence EP back in commemoration of its 10th Anniversary.
First released by Radar Recordings and later packaged together with the Blood Is Bright EP to form the band’s first Self-Titled full length, this marks the first time Forcing Out The Silence will be released as a stand-alone vinyl piece, on January 27th.
At the time of its original release, Amplifier Magazine said, “This fiery Boston quartet displays the potential to emerge as the bridge between post-grunge and the future of alternative rock.” Razorcake also commented, “Take the darkness of The Cure’s best and mix it with the heaviness of A Perfect Circle and moodiness of Placebo… This fell into my lap at the right time.”
Completely remastered for vinyl by Will Benoit of The Radar Studio (Caspian, Constants, Gifts From Enola), this release will see its original artwork expanded for the format by guitarist Michael Repasch-Nieves. Vinyl will be limited to 500 with four different variants being offered: Black (180 gram) [Label Exclusive], White (Band Exclusive), Red as well as a White/Black Swirl. All versions will have a B-Side etching.
