And now in proper Shellac fashion, here are the facts:

DATA
This is Shellac’s fifth LP. Recording took place sporadically over the past few years at Steve's ELECTRICAL AUDIO studios in Chicago. The record was mastered by Steve Rooke at ABBEY ROAD. There is no comma in ‘Dude Incredible’; like Sir Duke or King Friday, for example.

QC
Audio quality is paramount, as always, with Shellac. The LP was mastered entirely in the analog domain, using the DMM (Direct Metal Mastering) process. The LPs are being manufactured at RTI in Camarillo, CA, using their HQ-180 system. The pressings are 180 gram audiophile quality.

TOURING
The band will continue to play shows or tour at the same sporadic and relaxed pace as always. There is no correlation between shows and record releases.

Spiderland (remastered) To Be Issued in Non-Box-Set Vinyl, CD, and Digital Formats On June 24

All 3,138 copies of the SLINT Spiderland (remastered) Box Set were sold out long before the release date of April 15th, before receiving a perfect “10” on pitchfork.com, and before the 5-star review in the May issue of Mojo. Ever since early March, when we turned off the ability to pre-order the box set from our web site, the Touch and Go inbox has been overflowing with requests that we release a more modest version for those who missed out on, or could not afford, the limited edition box set.

In response, we are very excited to announce the June 24th release of Spiderland (remastered) as a single 180 gram LP + DVD (of the documentary "Breadcrumb Trail"), as a single CD + DVD, and as a digital album.

AND!!! For those who crave something just a bit more unique, we will also be offering a limited edition GREEN & BLACK SWIRL 180 gram vinyl LP of Spiderland (remastered) + DVD, exclusively via pre-order at the Touch and Go Records website (while supplies last) HERE.

Let's just cut to the finer details, shall we? (see below for details)



The vinyl format includes:

- Slint's 1991 album, Spiderland, remastered from the original analog master tapes by our friend Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering Service. This is the same version as was included in the Spiderland (remastered) Box Set.
