Incendiary Device sign to Bridge Nine Records

Incendiary Device

Kristin Memoli

Bridge Nine Records has added Incendiary Device from New York to their roster. Founded by documentarian and filmmaker Drew Stone (vocals) and Tristan D'Graves (bass), Incendiary Device's music is rooted in early hardcore and classic punk with a New York edge. Stone and D'Graves have played together in various bands (Antidote, The High & The Mighty, Drew Stone Hit Squad) for over a decade. The four-piece lineup also includes guitarist Shaun Brennan and drummer Mike Flaherty (Car Bomb Parade, United Blood). Incendiary Device was formed in 2022 and will release their debut album on Bridge Nine Records this fall.

On joining the label, Tristan D'Graves says:

"We're thrilled to be working with Bridge Nine for our debut album. Their reputation as a label that supports and nurtures the hardcore scene is unmatched, and we're honored to be part of their roster."

Vocalist Drew Stone adds:

"We are excited about this album. It echos all our hopes and dreams looking towards the future. It harkens back to a time that was a big influence on all of us : Classic old school, American hardcore. We look forward to heading out on the road playing it for all our friends around the world. Thank you for the support!"

Bridge Nine label owner Chris Wrenn states:

"Working with Drew Stone and his new band, Incendiary Device, was an easy decision to make. Drew's long, rich history in both the New York City and Boston hardcore scenes, as well as his unwavering commitment to using his platform to promote up-and-coming bands represents the dedication and spirit that I look for when signing artists to Bridge Nine. I'm excited to be part of what he's up to next as he unleashes the new Incendiary Device album upon the world!"

First off change your fu cking name cuz there's Incendiary from Long Island who've been around since 2007 thus are the oldest active 2K on band in NYC metro. Second how the mighty have fallen & LOL @ Chris Wrenn/Bridge Nine Records for signing these irrelevant old farts with the stupid bandname. Talk about desperate. What person under 45 cares about this band who plays only shows the singer puts on & schmoozes his way onto?

* oldest active 2K on hardcore band in NYC metro

anonymous 340 days ago

They have a history or stolen band names: the dummer was in Car Bomb Parade, but there has been another band called Car Bomb since the early 2000's.

anonymous 340 days ago

Who is the target audience exactly? That band is over 200 years old in combination. How big is Wrenn's trust fund ffs, that he can still afford to float a project that may as well be adult day care for the HC elderly.

anonymous 340 days ago

^They will make him some money in Europe, I doubt he payed any sort of advance, maybe a grand for recording.

anonymous 340 days ago

i can tell by looking at them they play really slow dbeat and have the same riffs as Rancid

anonymous 340 days ago

They will make him some money in Europe, I doubt he payed any sort of advance, maybe a grand for recording. This band ain't making shit anywhere. My guess is 300-500 copies of an EP.

anonymous 340 days ago

^ Europe has both the internet and young people, Wrenn should probably get out of Boston occasionally before sending many more old white dudes on tour. Dude should have more self respect by now anyway, who wants to go down as the label where elderly HC guys go to embarrass themselves?

anonymous 340 days ago

^exactly. Will put out 500 copies of a 7" worldwide and call it a day. Probably send the band 100 of them

anonymous 340 days ago

Taco Bell dog here. Good news, we will be using an Incendiary Device song in our next commercial for our new product, the Boston Baked Bean taco. Live Mas

Stay at home dad core

5000 copies sold in pre-order alone!!!!

anonymous 340 days ago

Even the dadcore demographic is under 50. These guys have relatives who call them Bumpa or Pop-Pop

Donald Trump here. Did someone say, "cheeseborger?"

anonymous 340 days ago

No one cares about Bridge 9.

anonymous 340 days ago

^ You've clearly avoided the city of Boston so far in your life. Good on you.

anonymous 340 days ago

I refuse to believe that's not an Impractical Jokers cast photo

anonymous 340 days ago

came here to see how they hell they could get away with that name to find they were previously named Antidote NYHC when there is literally also a band named Antidote from the 80's lmao

anonymous 340 days ago

Europe has both the internet and young people, >>> Who don't care about this band & don't blindly support it cuz it's NY/NYC/NYHC - 1996 is long gone. Support it more than Americans? Yeah but that's a very low bar. Again 500 copies of a one and done 7" & some shows & fests with Biohazard cuz Drew Stone is their boy. Wrenn should probably get out of Boston occasionally before sending many more old white dudes on tour. Dude should have more self respect by now anyway, who wants to go down as the label where elderly HC guys go to embarrass themselves? He needs to end the label & turn it into his record store/venue. Sell just the big sellers sure. I sense that's what he's doing now but he's not going out with the label well. This band suuucks. Seriously again the ONLY shows this band plays is ones Drew books & puts them on & others where he gets them on cuz he's down with the promoter and/or whoever. They draw zero people in NYC - ZERO.

anonymous 340 days ago

came here to see how they hell they could get away with that name to find they were previously named Antidote NYHC when there is literally also a band named Antidote from the 80's lmao >>> I don't mean to get on you but Drew was in the 80s Antidote & Antidote NYHC is them. They added the NYHC cuz some jerkoff punk band from the UK was named Antidote too & neither wanted to fight for the name in court. The LMAO is this jerkoff has Incendiary in the bandnane when there's band from their area called Incendiary.

anonymous 340 days ago

No one cares about Bridge 9 anymore >>> Fixed that for you. LOL @ that new Death Before Dishonor two-song 7". Two songs after eight songs which took over a decade to write & release. Laziest band in hardcore.

anonymous 340 days ago

to find they were previously named Antidote NYHC when there is literally also a band named Antidote from the 80's lmao Not to defend this total f*cking abortion (Wrenn should be humiliated) but you're talking about the same band.

anonymous 340 days ago

^^^ I'm guessing since this band has Incendiary in their bandname when there's a band called Incendiary he thought this band's jerkoff vocalist pulled the same sh it with Antidote NYHC.

anonymous 340 days ago

Chris is a trust-fund kid turned trust-fund adult who made his name by having a ton of money to burn at a moment that HC looked just like him. Pure luck of birth, both his moment in time and inheritance. He's gotten so lazy about being rich that he doesn't even bother pretending Bridge Nine was ever DIY or even ever profitable anymore, sh*t like this screams it. It's fine, it benefits Boston occasionally with "warehouse" (I'll never live in a warehouse that plush) shows, whatever. What's kinda gross is his hypocrisy of it, he didn't build something out of nothing with passion, hard work, and sacrifice. Bridge 9 is almost as punk rock as a country club, he's just a benefactor dilettante with a long-running vanity project.

anonymous 340 days ago

^^^ How much did he inherit? Like YOU wouldn't take an inheritance. Or you're saying he hasn't been humble about it & that's the stone in your shoe about him? If so fair enough but tell us the deets.

anonymous 340 days ago

Knee brace core

anonymous 340 days ago

^^^ Also better he used x of his inheritance to support hardcore than do nothing for hardcore with it no? I mean if I had a long lost uncle who willed me money & it was 5M after inheritance tax & I opened a live music venue with part of it I'm a crumb?

anonymous 340 days ago

<Antidote – Mr. Glenboski (1998, CD) Only release by Antidote before they changed their name to Hot Rod Circuit.

I mean if I had a long lost uncle who willed me money & it was 5M after inheritance tax & I opened a live music venue with part of it I'm a crumb?" ^Not a crumb, just a dilettante who chose Hardcore music and musicians. Issue there is that his hardcore came with a scene that became kind of a lifestyle and look with zero heart. Hardcore came out of DIY punk and eat-the-rich struggle ethics created by Reagan and Co and their outright war on the middle and lower classes... Rich boys wearing the uniform and carrying the flags for dress-up are useful and have always been there, but they've also always been flagrantly phoney. Playacting amongst the poor to feed ones ego is not very Hardcore, if we're talking about Hardcore that meant anything. It doesn't mean anything anymore, and he helped to destroy that meaning just by being what he is.

anonymous 340 days ago

Wut

anonymous 340 days ago

"a dilettante who chose Hardcore music and musicians. Issue there is that his hardcore came with a scene that became kind of a lifestyle and look with zero heart" LOL John Joseph has entered the chat. You can only be a part of punk and hardcore if you were raised on "Da streets"

anonymous 340 days ago

^ Nah, it's been largely suburban white boys since the 90s, the same ones now wringing their hands that its changed and there are rules not designed exclusively for them. It's a hypocritical AF genre. Just love pointing it out.

anonymous 340 days ago

Just love pointing it out. Oh STFU. You're not some poor city kid/inner city kid & hardcore had rich, poor, in between since Day One. You're talking about the toughguy BS then & I agree it was that but don't come off like you're some working class hero - you're not.

anonymous 340 days ago

^Not a crumb, just a dilettante who chose Hardcore music and musicians. >> Dillettante? Up yours. If I'm using money to benefit the scene it's good. Money talks bul lshit walks when you want to open things which facilitate hardcore. Issue there is that his hardcore came with a scene that became kind of a lifestyle and look with zero heart. Hardcore came out of DIY punk and eat-the-rich struggle ethics created by Reagan and Co and their outright war on the middle and lower classes... >> Cuz The Sex Pistols were DIY punk right? Get real you old punk cornball. Hardcore means something if you ignore the bullsh it. Just listen to what you like, take whatever from it. ] I was never into Chris's thing but he's done more for hardcore than you ever have done or will do.

anonymous 340 days ago

Joe Biden here, Corn Pop was a bad dude. Hardcore you might say. Anyway, that was back in the 40s. What year is it and who is the president now?

anonymous 339 days ago

The Sex Pistols were a British punk band who broke out in England in the 1970s. That's actually different than American Hardcore, a punk offshoot born in reaction to Ronald Reagans presidency, but otherwise, GREAT POINT. By the time Wrenn got involved, hardcore was soulless paint by numbers "we like pits!" suburban white bro nothingland except to the soulless bros pretending they had something to be pissed about. Sounds like that's your jam, bet you had big white boy fun for awhile. It's over now, though.

anonymous 339 days ago

You kinda shouldn't have to "ignore bullshit" to respect a genre or support it's existence as it was. Hardcore looked and felt racist, was dangerous for women and girls because of white bro "dudes backed hard" codes of conduct, and generally sounded the same (but not good) from 1990-2014. If Chris Wrenn helped grow that, he straight up sucks.

anonymous 339 days ago

You're talking about the toughguy BS then & I agree it was that but don't come off like you're some working class hero - you're not." ------- I'm not acting, I'm relentlessly pointing out hypocrisy in a genre that's been a little too precious about it's social justice roots as it was a frat house until recently, when the world grabbed it and shook that sh*t up. What was DAY ONE in your estimation, when you showed up? 1990s and 2000s Hardcore was not a "community" it was white boys yelling between breakdowns, established "pit etiquette" while all dressing the same, and chasing girls, and hurting and even assaulting girls kind of all the time and protecting each other with bro code when those girls tried to speak out. It's nothing to be proud of. I'm no working class hero, I just have a brain.

anonymous 339 days ago

I'm not acting,>> Yeah you are I'm relentlessly pointing out hypocrisy in a genre that's been a little too precious about it's social justice roots as it was a frat house until recently, when the world grabbed it and shook that sh*t up.>>> Bullsh it hardcore is no frat house BAD BRAINS, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, Japanese hc etc. What was DAY ONE in your estimation, when you showed up? 1990s and 2000s >>> Bad Brains 1978-79. Hardcore was not a "community" it was white boys yelling between breakdowns, established "pit etiquette" while all dressing the same, and chasing girls, and hurting and even assaulting girls kind of all the time and protecting each other with bro code when those girls tried to speak out. >> Bullsh it. Amanda MacKaye, Nancy Barile, Kira Roessler & countless others. Kathleen Hannah married to Ad Rock since 1998. You lose. It's nothing to be proud of. I'm no working class hero, I just have a brain.>> filled with revisionist bullsh it

anonymous 339 days ago

You kinda shouldn't have to "ignore bullshit" to respect a genre or support it's existence as it was. Hardcore looked and felt racist, was dangerous for women and girls >>> No it wasn't & you weren't around then tourist. More revisionist history bul lshit by you. because of white bro "dudes backed hard" codes of conduct, and generally sounded the same (but not good) from 1990-2014. >>> You have zero clue about 1990-2014. If Chris Wrenn helped grow that, he straight up sucks. You straight up are a whiny little jealous bitch who has never done anything for hardcore save badmouth it & Chris. POC in hardcore let's see...Zach De La Rocha, Carl Candiria, Bad Brains, Chaka Burn, Djinji Absolution, Doc Coyle, Franz Turnstile, End It singer, Shawn Brown, Rocky George, Chuck Treece & countless others. No other genre of music or music community was, is, or will be as diverse as hardcore.

anonymous 339 days ago

The Sex Pistols were a British punk band who broke out in England in the 1970s. >>> Manufactured band & John Lyndon is currently a rabid Trump supporter. That's actually different than American Hardcore, a punk offshoot born in reaction to Ronald Reagans presidency, but otherwise, GREAT POINT. >> Born from alot of stuff besides Reagan. By the time Wrenn got involved, hardcore was soulless paint by numbers "we like pits!" suburban white bro nothingland except to the soulless bros pretending they had something to be pissed about. Sounds like that's your jam, bet you had big white boy fun for awhile. It's over now, though. >>> No pretending at all. Alot of it wasn't my thing but there were countless You running your mouth about "white boys" is comical because you acknowledge they were outside of the mainstream. They rejected frat culture. See NYHC a mix of everyone. Chicago had Los Crudos. LA still had & has a huge Latino presence. The list goes on Clueless

anonymous 339 days ago

Riot Grrrl doesn't exist without hardcore. Again Kathleen Hannah has been married to Ad Rock co-author of Girls since 1998. L7 was discovered & signed by Epitaph Records. Kira Roessler played bass for Black Flag. Spitboy played alot in the early 90s. Nausea's Amy Kiem married & had a daughter with Roger Miret & was the first person to sing about vivisection. Louise Parnessa oversaw the CBGB Sunday hardcore matinees. The list goes on you dumbass.

anonymous 339 days ago

You know that none of the women you just frothed about are Hardcore musicians or even adjacent, right? You're talking about Punk scenes. CBs was not a hardcore club. Even if you'd ACTUALLY found a female HC musician in your hastily Googled mess, it wasnt the ppl on stage truly threatened in that "culture". It was the fans, the kids coming to shows. Male fronted Punk acts or Punk musicians are meaningless here, since we're talking about 1990s and 2000s HARDCORE. That scene was so specific and rigid back that "Hardcore kids" were instantly recognizable from 3000 feet away. Like a bro cult, actually. "Other stuff" is what created American Hardcore, huh? Brilliant. Other stuff like suburban bros and sport team mentality that made it distinctly NOT punk or grunge, and not based on protest or social justice as it once had been. "Other stuff" like brocore Bridge 9 which came YEARS AFTER real BHC was OVER. Wrenn didn't run with Negative FX and SSD, he wasn't out of diapers yet.

anonymous 339 days ago

You're not actually responding to anything I said, you're trying to make HC into something it wasn't and deflecting. I'm talking about a scene that didn't do SHIT to further a cause, because they bro-ed out and ruined it. In the 90s and 2000s. That Wrenn and B9 were integral in shaping AWAY from it's roots. Stick to the topic, dumbass.

anonymous 339 days ago

Calling ppl "tourists" for pointing out that the 1990s and 2000s HC scene was a rigid, kinda r@pey bro-cult that sucked is not really furthering the whole "It was a community" argument. It wasn't a community, it was a garbage moment in alt music history. Who blindly supports some rich white kid who helped ruin something? Not very punk rock of you at all.

anonymous 339 days ago

LOL @ taking "hardcore" this serious.

You're a crybaby do-nothing loser who anonymously whines about a guy who's done more for hardcore & music in general than you have. Dude opened a record store & has shows there...you besides running your keyboard mouth on here cuz you sure wouldn't run it to me in person because you're smart? Your BS ramblings about the 90s & 00s...then why are you on here in 2023 Weirdo? Tons of LG articles about B9 & their bands yet you finally pop up here. Clown.

anonymous 338 days ago

^^^ Incendiary needs to tell them to change the name Sheer Terror is gonna tell Terror to change their name.

anonymous 337 days ago

^^^ Not the same thing. Incendiary is the first word in Incendiary Device & most people instantly think of Incendiary. Most people don't instantly think of Sheer Terror when they see the name Terror. Also ST was at least gone for five years when Terror formed in 2002 whereas these assholes named themselves what they did with Incendiary alive, well & being in the same metro area.
