Published Jun 19, 2012In 2011, Swedish pop vets Acid House Kings had a busy year, as they released Music Sounds Better with You, plus a Dan Treacy-featuring single. And while 2012 hasn't been quite so fruitful, fans have plenty to get excited about, since the group have announced plans to reissue some of their back catalogue.
This campaign includes three albums: 1997's Advantage Acid House Kings, 2002's Mondays Are Like Tuesdays and Tuesdays Are Like Wednesdays, and 2005's Sing Along with Acid House Kings. These re-releases will come out on August 28 through Labrador Records, and will be available in expanded digital and 180-gram vinyl editions.
Interestingly, two of Acid House Kings' albums won't be reissued as part of this campaign. In a statement, the band's Johan Angergård explained, "There's a good reason our first and latest albums won't be reissued. Our debut, Pop, Look & Listen simply isn't any good. And the latest album Music Sounds Better with You is still available on all formats, everywhere, all the time."
There's no word as to exactly what the bonus material will entail, but the extras (not to mention the vinyl copies) will help to tide Swedish pop fans over until Acid House Kings next decide to release new material.
