Lagwagon Announce Expanded Reissues for First Five Albums
Published Sep 23, 2011California punkers Lagwagon aren't exactly the most active of bands these days. Their last studio release was 2008's I Think My Older Brother Used to Listen to Lagwagon EP, but the Goleta, CA-bred group are ready to toast their early days via a series of reissues.
Longtime label Fat Wreck Chords has announced that the act will be re-releasing their first five albums this November, with a bunch of extra material attached. Each album will be packaged as a two-LP set and deluxe CD release.
The albums in question cover their '90s output: 1992's Duh, 1994's Trashed, 1995's Hoss, 1997's Double Plaidinum and 1998's Let's Talk About Feelings. While tracklistings have yet to appear for the revamps, the new fangled editions will contain a number of bonus songs, B-sides, EP tracks and demos from throughout Lagwagon's career. All together, the band will drop 141 songs via these reissues.
"This sounds like an easy thing, but we actually started about three years ago," singer Joey Cape said of the project in a promotional vid, which you can see below. "I basically went into my basement and just dug through boxes that are 20 years old and found every song that the band ever recorded."
In addition to the individual represses, the band will be collecting all the material in a box set that will also contain a bonus live album.
Break out your boardshorts, everybody, the reissues arrive November 22.
