Pavement announce 30th-anniversary reissue for ‘Slanted & Enchanted’

Pavement have announced a 30th-anniversary reissue for their classic debut album, Slanted & Enchanted.

The album, released in April 1992, celebrated its 30th birthday last week. The reissue will be released on August 12th and will complement their live reunion that kicks off later in the summer moving into autumn. 

The reissue will see the iconic debut released on red/white/black splatter vinyl. Also included is a cassette edition titled Courting Shutdown Offers, which features demo versions of the album that the band used to pilot the album for record labels.

Pavement’s latest reissue follows the re-release of Terror Twilight: Farewell Horizontal, a special edition of their final studio album Terror Twilight. The band’s fifth studio album was originally released in June 1999 and was produced by Radiohead collaborator Nigel Godrich.
