Audiophiles, get stoked. Famous indie label Bridge Nine and Ryan Hoffman of Chain of Strength just teamed up to bring us a brand-new imprint label called Quiet Panic.

The label will also feature Michael Messina of Southern Lord and Cobra Music. The label aims to push the boundaries of the weird and experimental and bring you the best music from every possible sector of the underground.

“You can expect the unexpected,” said Messina in the new imprint’s press release.” We might release a popular indie band, a kid making beats in his bedroom, or a Norwegian Black Metal band. Nothing is off limits. We just want to establish an environment of creativity and not be pigeonholed into one particular genre.”

The first artist announced on the label is Beach Slang, rock ‘n’ roll punk hailing from Philly. If their inclusion, and the other labels and people involved with this project, are any indication, underground music fans just got a new obsession.
