Nirvana’s final album, In Utero, was recently celebrated in a deluxe 20th anniversary reissue. Original producer Steve Albini revisited the album – with full blessings from bandmembers Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic – for a “2013 Mix.” Audiophiles can get their hands on this remastered reworking in November, when the modern mix is released as a 45 RPM, 180-gram limited edition double vinyl for Record Store Day.
Upcoming Australia & New Zealand tour with Helmet (see tour dates). To commemorate this illustrious pairing there’s gonna be a split 7”. Like old times for both bands, the single is coming out on AmRep with a HAZE XXL cover. Sneak peak…Australia / New Zealand tour plus new 7” with Helmet!
Easy Street's 25th Anniversary celebration continues with a very special event - a Shadow reunion show & record release party! Formed circa 1982, Shadow features Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready, Danny Newcomb, and brothers in rock Chris and Rick Friel. They’ll be taking the stage to celebrate the release of a new 10-inch single featuring two classic Shadow anthems that haven’t been heard in 30 years!
