On April 15, Touch and Go Records will reissue Slint’s classic 1991 album Spiderland in a deluxe box set, newly remastered from the original analog masters by Bob Weston. It will include 14 previously unreleased outtakes and demos. Watch the official promo video:
From Pitchfork, additional details:
“The album, outtakes, and demos are all being pressed on 180 gram vinyl, and the box also comes with CDs of all the music. It also includes a 104-page book with never-before-seen photos, lyrics, and a foreword by Will Oldham. It’s available in a limited edition of 3,138 copies.
The box set also contains Breadcrumb Trail, a 90-minute documentary on DVD about the making of Spiderland directed by Lance Bangs. The film includes interviews with the band, plus James Murphy, Steve Albini, David Yow, Ian MacKaye, Matt Sweeney, and others.
If you pre-order the box before March 8, you’ll get a T-shirt made from the silk screen the band used to make their 1989 tour shirt. A limited number of box sets will be signed by the entire band.
