Press release reads:
Indie godfathers Dinosaur Jr. have announced the reissue of their classic 1988 album Bug on cassette via Joyful Noise Recordings. Slated for release on June 21, the cassette reissue coincides with the band's 15-date US/European tour in which Bug will be performed live in its entirety.Dinosaur Jr. start playing "Bug" in its entirety on tour on June 21st, the June 23rd NYC show at Terminal 5 with Fucked Up included. An updated set of dates is below.
Originally released on cassette in 1988 via the legendary SST label, this is the first ever reissue of a Dinosaur Jr. album on its original cassette format. Hell - as far as we can tell, this is the first ever cassette reissue of any album originally released on the format...
Fucked Up meanwhile are releasing David Comes to Live on Tuesday (June 7th), aka at midnight tonight, and they have a gimmick of their own too...
"To celebrate the release of Fucked Up's David Comes To Life, the album will be on sale for $3.99 (in MP3) as "MIDNIGHT MADNESS" takes over MatadorRecords.com starting at 12am EST tonight.Act quick if you don't want to pay $4.01 or more! All tour dates below...
The catch is, the album will only be $3.99 for about 2 minutes. That's right. From midnight until noon tomorrow, the price of the MP3 album will be steadily going up until it hits full price once again.
And that's not all.... while we can't compete with Fucked Up's physical world antics in Toronto, our version of "MIDNIGHT MADNESS" will also include a virtual pop-up store with a screening room, characters from the "story", a live webcam from Toronto "MIDNIGHT MADNESS" and a preview of our just about ready to launch "MataCloudTM."
