Garage Days Re-Revisited To Be Re-Released

  • Published in News

The Wait is over...Actually, it's back!  Nearly three decades after going out of print, Metallica will release a remastered version of The $5.98 EP - Garage Days Re-Revisited on April 13, as part of their ongoing remasters series via their own Blackened Recordings label. 

Originally released over 30 years ago on August 21,1987, the collection features the band covering songs by early Metallica influencers such as Diamond Head, Holocaust, Killing Joke, Budgie, and The Misfits. The five songs from the EP were later included as a part of the 1998 multi-platinum release Garage, Inc., but the band felt it was time to bring it back in the original formats.

Fans who pre-order the album will receive an instant download of ‘The Wait’ (originally released by Killing Joke in 1980).
