Official press release: New York hardcore veterans Biohazard are teaming up with Revolver magazine and Repudo to give away their new record Reborn In Defiance in its entirety for free to all fans in the United States starting January 20, 2012. The first such promotion ever launched, the record will be available for free download Revolver magazine's website, as well as through the technology offered by Repudo.com. Fans can check into Biohazard "Containment Zones" (record stores, venues, and more) across the United States using the Repudo app on their smart phones and download the new record directly to their phones or send it to their email inbox. A full map of the Containment Zones will be available soon. For fans who still want a physical copy of Reborn In Defiance, CDs will be made available for sale in conjunction with Record Store Day in April and will include exclusive additional content. "When we started, we followed our hearts and innovated a new direction for heavy music, and today we're doing the same," says Biohazard vocalist/guitarist Billy Graziadei. "Technology has allowed us to find a new way to not only reach out to fans but also to thank them for their support all these years. Grab our album for free and we'll see you on tour!" Reborn In Defiance is the highly anticipated new record that was recorded by the band's original lineup, its first such recording in almost 18 years, with producer Toby Wright (Alice in Chains, Metallica).

"The first such promotion ever launched" EVER.


LoydChristmas 1/11/2012 1:59:50 PM

anonymous 1/11/2012 2:05:57 PM

The suits and masks still cost, though.

Well, the price is right...

"The Anti-Mother" of album release strategies

New album must suck that bad.


anonymous 1/11/2012 2:36:19 PM

nobody would have bought it


anonymous 1/11/2012 2:48:12 PM

More than anything Im wondering if Billy still wears make up like he did in Suicide City.


anonymous 1/11/2012 2:56:34 PM

Still not worth it.


big_metal_al 1/11/2012 4:42:17 PM

anonymous 1/11/2012 4:46:28 PM

Not the first time this has been done, Trent Reznor gave NIN's "the slip" away for free in 2008.

anonymous 1/11/2012 6:48:54 PM

one of the few select bands nate johnson has not been a part of...


anonymous 1/11/2012 7:27:02 PM

Yeah, not an original concept, at all. Plenty of bands have done this.


anonymous 1/11/2012 7:30:48 PM

"Containment Zone"? Sounds like a fancy way of saying "toilet". Which makes sense...


slut 1/11/2012 10:26:01 PM

Cory Brandon is hiding under the bed.


pregnantNUN 1/12/2012 5:24:53 AM
