For first time in 14 years, indie-rock band the Promise Ring will be releasing their album Nothing Feels Good on cassette and vinyl. The album was originally released in 1997 on Jade Tree; Nothing Feels Good is available for preorder here and will be out October 30.
The Promise Ring broke up shortly after their 2002 release Wood/Water and came back a couple times throughout the years. Their influence has continued, and now Jade Tree is giving the fans something to hold onto.
The second wave emo pioneers recently appeared on Jughead’s Basement podcast talking about the re-release.
You can watch the Milwaukee band perform at the CMJ Showcase on October 20, 2000, at the Bowery Ballroom below:
