108 is definitely one of the 90s bands that has gotten back together and just blown everyone away. Since they reunited in 2005, they've released a 10 song EP and a full length on Deathwish Inc. You'd think that a band that getting back together after not having played together in almost 10 years would have lost a step...not 108. Their recent releases are just laying to waste everyone and everything in their path. They will be performing at the Burning Fight show in Chicago which makes me happy to see them again. This morning Rob Fish, vocals, posted on the Bridge 9 messageboard giving everyone a heads up as to what has been going on with them and whats up coming. Heres what he had to say:

"On Friday the 13th 108 flew into Boston, MA to record what was originally slated to be a new 4 song EP but by Sunday afternoons departure had turned into a 10 song LP. From the inception of this recording session our desire was to record a raw and stripped down record and once we hit the studio things developed so quickly that it was clear that recording just an EP was out of the question thus the new LP was born. The recording was engineer by Alex Garcia-Rivera (ex-Give Up The Ghost) and features Mike Justian (Trap Them, Unearth) on drums. Deathwish Inc. will announce more about the record and it's release in the near future.

In honor of all things 108, Ive included downloaded of their live record that was released on Lost & Found as well as their live Ep from the same tour. Lost & Found Records has since folded (which many are probably happy about) which means these records are long out print. The recording on these is INCREDIBLE! They even perform a cover of "No Spiritual Surrender" by Inside Out (15 minutes long!!!) as well cover just about every song you'd want to hear.

108 - Serve And Defy
