Experimental post-punkers The Raincoats are reissuing their second LP Odyshape, originally released in 1981 on Rough Trade, on their own WeThRee label. The album is being remastered and pressed on 180 gram vinyl and CD with liner notes by Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon. The release date is set for September 13.
The Raincoats will follow the release with a short North American tour that kicks off in Brooklyn on September 16 at Warsaw. Tickets are on sale now. The Raincoats also play the Jeff Mangum-curated ATP UK in December where they'll perform their self titled debut in its entirety.
The Raincoats played MoMA in November. Check out a video of them with Kathleen Hanna covering The Slits' "Vindictive" below, along with all tour dates...
