Strung Out Volume One on 4LP + DVD + Download Box Set
Includes Remastered/Remixed Reissues of Another Day In Paradise, Suburban Teenage Wasteland Blues & Twisted By Design Plus The Skinny Years...Before We Got Fat and First-Ever DVD
Spanning their more than 20 years together, Strung Out have established themselves as stalwarts of the punk scene with an ability to organically evolve and continue to influence their peers. When the band began, as one of the first acts signed to Fat Wreck Chords, they quickly became known for their innovative blend of melodic skate-punk and aggressive metal-infused riffs.
Over the course of their first three studio full-lengths Strung Out successfully honed their sound into a recognizable band, setting them apart from their contemporaries in both style and execution. In the spirit of capturing that distinct era in Strung Out's history the idea for reissues and a box set came about.
2014 will see the release of vinyl reissues of Another Day In Paradise (1994), Suburban Teenage Wasteland Blues (1996) and Twisted By Design (1998), all fully remastered and remixed by Ryan Greene (NOFX, No Use For A Name, Lagwagon), helping to display the true power of these momentous songs along with nuances previously unheard. Three special records that certainly deserved some special treatment, and that’s what will be on offer with these reissues and the all-encompassing Volume One box set, which will include the 3 albums plus a DVD.
All the artwork has been reworked from the original pieces and includes deluxe foldout inserts with never before seen photos and extensive liner notes from the band. The real gem of the box set (in the works for a decade), is the first-ever Strung Out DVD. You get a full 2012 concert where they performed the Suburban and Twisted albums in their entirety, all professionally filmed and recorded, and further enhanced with a ton of footage from the ‘90s - including shows, tour antics, interviews, behind the scenes stuff - a veritable treasure trove of classic Strung Out.
For the vinyl hounds, the LP box set also includes The Skinny Years...Before We Got Fat, remastered and on the format for the first time ever. The bar has been set high with such classic material and Volume One definitely meets expectations!
