Get Warmer is the fourth full-length album by DIY collective Bomb the Music Industry!.

Recording and composition[edit]

Originally, the band were going to follow up 2006’s Goodbye Cool World with an EP entitled No No New York. This concept was abandoned in favor of recording this album. A song from the abandoned EP, entitled "The Soul Crushing Northeast" can be heard here. This was the first BtMI! album to feature a live band, which was made up of over 20 different musicians.

The title track makes references to both Tom Waits and the Wham! single "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go". "No Rest For the Whiny" was previously titled "Screamin’ for a Wage (a.k.a. 2006 World Series of Craig’s List Failure)". Unlike previous Bomb the Music Industry! albums, Get Warmer uses phone messages as samples in between songs rather than quotes from movies and TV shows.

Release[edit]

On July 31, 2007, Get Warmer was released as a free download from Quote Unquote Records' website. It was released on CD and vinyl through Asian Man on August 7.[1]
