10th Anniversary Reissue of Bad Brains’ “Build A Nation”

The first MINDFUL VINYL release comes out May 5, 2017 and is being done with partners, Megaforce/MRI.  The release will be a limited-edition, green vinyl copy of the classic BAD BRAINS album, BUILD A NATION. MINDFUL VINYL is a new music-based initiative designed to further the conversation/spread awareness about mental health issues.

MINDFUL VINYL founder, Michael Heyliger, states,  “I’ve been inspired by other musical charity initiatives, and I wanted to bring light to mental and emotional wellness in a fun and creative way. Music has helped me through hard times in my life, and I know that many others-musicians and fans alike-share the same sentiment.”  Furthermore, he adds “It’s an honor to be able to re-introduce this classic Bad Brains title to the public after several years out of print.”
