Official press release:

No Warning was a hardcore punk band from Toronto, Canada. Their first release under that name was a three-song demo tape. They released their legendary 7" on New York label, Martyr Records in 2001. Later that year, Boston based Bridge Nine Records re-released the 7" on CD with different artwork and the demo tape as bonus tracks. The band continued to play shows across the East Coast of the USA and Canada with hardcore punk bands such as Hatebreed, Madball, Cro-Mags, Sick Of It All, Terror and Bane. They also appeared respectively at annual hardcore festivals such as Hellfest (NY) and Posi Numbers Fest (PA). In the fall of 2002, No Warning released what some fans consider to be the band's best work and a monumental album of that era of hardcore, Ill Blood, on Bridge Nine Records.

No Warning went on to release Suffer, Survive in late 2004 and broke up in 2005, leaving behind a legacy of fast, catchy and melodic hardcore that has yet to be replicated. Since the band went dormant, their landmark album Ill Blood went out of print, with fans and vinyl collectors clamoring for a repress over the last eight years. Finally, Bridge Nine is bringing this classic album back into print as a gatefold double LP that has been remastered by Golden Mastering specifically for vinyl. This double LP features Ill Blood on LP1 and the band's self-titled EP on LP2 along with Side B artwork by Damien Abraham from Fucked Up.

The first pressing of Ill Blood was a mere 1,000 copies back in 2002; now, the album will be re-pressed on "blood and piss colored vinyl" with a screen print on one side (300 copies), "half blood/half shit" with an etching (700 copies), and "blood and shit" (1,000 copies). As one of the most requested re-pressings in Bridge Nine history, this is a must-have album for every fan of hardcore punk, from all walks of life.
