Saves The Day giving ‘Through Being Cool’ expanded 20th anniversary reissue
Not only are Saves The Day playing Through Being Cool in full for its 20th anniversary at NJ and Anaheim shows with Hot Rod Circuit (both sold out), they're giving the classic album an expanded reissue too. It'll include a remastered version of the album, along with nine previously unreleased demos from the album that the band recorded in their basement, a live session from the era, and a booklet. The reissue comes out on October 25 via the same label who released it in 1999, Equal Vision, on splatter vinyl, cassette, and CD. Various pre-order options here.
Through Being Cool was a turning point for hardcore, pop punk, and emo, it influenced tons of bands who got famous during the 2000s mainstream punk boom, and it still influences new bands today. If you haven't listened to the album in a while, it's worth revisiting -- stream it and check out the tracklist for the reissue below.
The NJ and Anaheim shows are the only upcoming dates for Saves The Day. But Hot Rod Circuit, who are playing Sorry About Tomorrow in full at those shows, are also playing that album in Connecticut and Boston.
