Fairfax, VA (PRWEB) August 26, 2009
19 years ago, Green Day released their debut album entitled "1039/Smooth" on punk upstart label Lookout Records. Since then, they have undeniably become one of the most successful rock bands of our time. Nine albums later, the band released "21st Century Breakdown" to wide critical acclaim.
In anticipation of this latest release and the accompanying concert tour, Warner Brothers/Reprise decided to re-issue all previous Green Day releases on vinyl -including the band's vast collection of 7" singles. Warner/Reprise selected Furnace MFG to manufacture, assemble, and prep each title for retail-ready distribution.
Furnace was especially proud to work on two additional limited edition, direct-to-consumer, multi-disc sets during this process. The first was a comprehensive custom box set including all 21 of Green Day's 7" singles. The second was a multi-record set of "21st Century Breakdown", which broke out each of the three acts of this "punk rock opera" onto its own 10" record. This set was packaged in a hardbound cover containing a 60 page book and the complete retail CD.
"Working on this series has been especially exciting for me," relates Furnace MFG President, Eric Astor. "The first time I saw Green Day was in 1990. They played in a friend's living room in Tempe, Arizona and they completely blew us away! I've been a huge fan ever since". He adds, "It's a great feeling to know the same DIY work ethic that has made Green Day a huge success in the music business is also the reason why Furnace MFG is still standing strong today, after 13 years in business."
About Furnace MFG: In business since 1996, Furnace MFG is a recognized leader in CD and DVD duplication, replication, and vinyl record manufacturing and packaging.
