As part of Magic Bullet Records’ 20th anniversary celebrations, the label is proud to announce another installment in the CHRISTIE FRONT DRIVE reissue project, this time in the form of the “4010” b/w “Away” 7” originally issued on Freewill Records in 1994. Out of print for many years, this classic emo/punk 7” is back with brand new artwork and a choice of either classic black or clear vinyl. Both sides are spun at 45 rpm for maximum fidelity.

During a brief run of less than three years (1993-1996), CHRISTIE FRONT DRIVE managed to turn punk on its head via their trademark (and often imitated) sound that holds up to this day. Everyone from JIMMY EAT WORLD to THE GET UP KIDS to TEXAS IS THE REASON has cited the influence of the band on both their bands and what became known as “emo” at large, with Alternative Pressgoing so far as to name the CHRISTIE FRONT DRIVE as one of “13 Bands that Became Legends in Four years or Less” (2010) AND “23 Bands Who Shaped Punk” (2007).
