SLINT - Spiderland (remastered) Box Set To Be Released April 15, 2014

In August of 1990, SLINT recorded their second album Spiderland at River North Recorders in Chicago. Over the course of only 4 days, the four young musicians created what would come to be regarded as one of the most important and influential records of the past thirty years. Adding to the mystique surrounding SLINT, they disbanded shortly before Spiderland was released on Touch and Go Records in April of 1991. There was no tour to support the album. There were no interviews with the band members. Just one eerie, now-iconic photo of the band
members' heads breaking the surface of the water and an album of six taut, menacing, and haunting songs.

Twenty-three years later, and five years in the making, Touch and Go Records will once again release the album Spiderland in April of 2014 - this time as a deluxe limited edition remastered box set. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl and packaged in a gatefold jacket, the entire Spiderland album has been remastered from the original analog master tapes by Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering Service. The box set includes 14 previously unreleased outtakes and demos mastered by Bob Weston and pressed on 2 additional 180 gram vinyl albums packaged in a gatefold LP jacket.

Pretty cool, huh? And all three LPs sound amazing!
But, wait, WAIT! ...there's more.. so much more!

Also included in the box set:

* For your voyeuristic pleasure, the band have decided to share 100 never-before-seen personal photos documenting SLINT's entire history in a 104-page book, which includes never-before-printed lyrics to all the songs on Spiderland and a forward by longtime friend and iconic Spiderland cover photographer Will Oldham.

* Satisfy your digital needs with a download coupon? NOPE. Not this time. Instead, inside a third gatefold LP jacket you will find 2 CDs and 1 DVD: one CD containing the entire remastered Spiderland album and the second CD with all 14 bonus tracks on one disc. Stick that in your computer and play it! (or don't. It's common knowledge vinyl sounds so much better.)

* Finally, solve the mystery and learn the real story of SLINT with Breadcrumb Trail - a new never-before-seen 90 minute DVD documentary about SLINT before, during, and after the making of Spiderland. Directed by Lance Bangs! Interviews with ALL the members of SLINT (Ethan Buckler, too!) as well as Steve Albini, Corey Rusk, James Murphy, David Yow, Ian Mackaye, Jason Noble, and many more friends and peers from the band's past (including Britt's parents!). Hear first hand accounts! See archival footage! Find out if the rumors are true!

We should probably mention:
All boxes are hand-numbered to reflect that vital information.
Once they are gone. They are gone. Forever.
