While Slint disbanded in 1992, the individual members remained extremely productive, contributing to seminal bands like The Breeders, The Palace Brothers, Tortoise & many more. The band reunited officially in 2007 for a well received run of concerts.
Earlier this year Touch & Go Records and the band compiled an ambitious expanded edition of Spiderland, remastered by Shellac bassist Bob Weston. The limited edition sold out ahead of release but a slimmed down version of the set is released onJune 24th.
The reissue includes a bonus disc of demos and rarities plus a DVD of “Breadcrumb Trail”, a documentary by Lance Bangs about Slint and the making of Spiderland; the film also received a theatrical release.
