Violent Femmes (30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) (Vinyl 3LP + 7" Box Set)

EXPECTED DATE:

February 16, 2024

It's been four whole decades since the debut album from the Violent Femmes first started getting played at West Auckland parties, and it's still as bratty, brilliant, and batty all these years later. Tunes like Kiss Off, Blister In The Sun, Add It Up, Gone Daddy Gone, and Please Do Not Go are burned into our collective memories, and we hope they never leave. So, it's sweet news indeed that the band have packaged up their newly remastered self-titled album along with demos, live takes, and a replica Ugly / Gimme The Car 7", and thrown it all into a lovely box for our pleasure. Happy birthday, Violent Femmes! - Flying Out

This expanded 40th anniversary edition of Violent Femmes' self-titled debut features the remastered album, plus rare B-sides, live sessions, and demo recordings. Housed in a lift-top box with die-cut darkened window detail revealing the box contents, the set includes three 180-gram LPs plus a replica 7" single, along with a book featuring new liner notes by journalist David Fricke and interviews with the band.

Includes the classic anthems Blister in the Sun, Please Do Not Go, Gone Daddy Gone, and Add It Up.
