Metallica reissuing ‘Garage Days Re-Revisited EP’

The group continues its catalog reissue campaign

Nearly three decades after going out of print, Metallica will release a remastered version of The $5.98 EP – Garage Days Re-Revisited on April 13th as part of their ongoing remasters series via their own Blackened Recordings label.

Originally released over 30 years ago on August 21,1987, the collection features the band covering songs by early Metallica influencers such as Diamond Head, Holocaust, Killing Joke, Budgie, and The Misfits. The five songs from the EP were later included as a part of the 1998 multi-platinum release Garage, Inc., but the band felt it was time to bring it back in the original formats!

Fans who pre-order the album at metallica.com will receive an instant download of “The Wait” (originally released by Killing Joke in 1980).

The $5.98 EP – Garage Days Re-Revisited was remastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood, CA.

The EP will be available on CD, black 180-gram LP, limited edition cassette, limited edition lenticular CD longbox, metallica.com exclusive limited edition picture disc, metallica.com and indie retail exclusive limited edition red-orange 180-gram LP and streaming and download.

The reissue campaign continues this year with …And Justice For All, although no release date has been set. The group released Kill ‘Em All…Ride The Lightning and Master of Puppets in the past two years on multi formats including Super Deluxe Box Set.

Track Listing:

  1. Helpless (originally released by Diamond Head)
  2. The Small Hours (originally released by Holocaust)
  3. The Wait (originally released by Killing Joke)
  4. Crash Course in Brain Surgery (originally released by Budgie)
