Slint 2014 US Reunion Tour & Spiderland Deluxe Box Set Pre-Order

Legendary Louisville, Kentucky indie band Slint have once again reunited, and this time it’s for a full on US tour! They did a few reunion shows in 2007 during Chicago’s Pitchfork festival and had an appearance at last year’s All Tomorrow's Parties festival in England but this will be their first official tour since 1989. Largely considered to be the first post rock band, Slint released only 2 LPs and 1 EP with their album “Spiderland” being lauded by critics as a classic. It’s hard to imagine a band with so little output having so much impact but that’s exactly how influential the music they made was. This tour coincides with a deluxe boxset reissue of the aforementioned Spiderland album that is up for pre-order now at Touch & Go’s website.

It features the album remastered from the original analog master tapes by Bob Weston and pressed on 180 gram vinyl & CD along with 14 unreleased demos and outtakes selected by the band. A 104 page book with over 100 never-before-seen photos and ‘Breadcrumb Trail’ a never before seen 90 minute documentary are also included! The packaging design was conceived by Temporary Residence label head Jeremy deVine. A few lucky pre-orders will receive an exclusive t-shirt and signed copies of the box as well! The box set will be released on April 15th and Slint will be playing at the Bottom Lounge in Chicago on 5/10/14. Check the full dates along with a link to pre-order the boxset below:
