Although they're no longer together, one-time hot indie AZ rock band Before Braille, which has shared the stage with Jimmy Eat World, will drop one last release for the die-hard fans. The guys released Kill the Messenger, Keep the Message, today. The final Before Braille disc features 20 songs including three acoustic tracks from The Rumor, five out-of-print compilation songs and nine new, unreleased tracks.

According to a MySpace bulletin, most of the songs "are brand new recordings from The Rumor era." Uber producer Bob Hoag, who has worked with the group in the past on some stellar albums, produced the disc. It will be available at Stinkweeds. Before Braille lead singer and frontman Dave Jensen invites fans to hit him up at Dave@beforebraille.com with any questions.
