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...

You're supposed to pretend you know who they are, not act like they're uncool because you haven't heard of them because they're not on your iPod like Vampire Weekend is.

of all the bands kurt cobain name dropped, the raincoats were the best.

actually that's not true, but they're still really good.

i remember cobain name-dropped them, geffen reissued their stuff and i bought it at tower records in 94 or whatever. not bad but im in no rush to see them live.

Wow, Comet Ping Pong is much smaller than the Warsaw, seems like 930 Club would make more sense.

comet ping pong?? wow. i saw mika miko there. that place holds like 100 people tops. warsaw is like maybe 900, 1000? i agree 930 club, or at least a place like dc9 or black cat backstage makes more sese.
