Butthole Surfers Launch Vinyl Reissue Campaign

Butthole Surfers Launch Vinyl Reissue Campaign
Classic Texan punk experimenters Butthole Surfers may not have issued a new album since 2001's Weird Revolution, but the band's first batch of albums are about to be repressed on vinyl for the first time in years.

Latino Bugger Veil is set to issue new vinyl editions of 1984's Psychic...Powerless...Another Man's Sac, 1986's Rembrandt Pussyhorse, 1987's Locust Abortion Technician and 1988's Hairway to Steven on October 1. According to a press release, the records "capture the band at their peak, drawing from punk, rock, psychedelic and experimental influences for a truly inspired and unmistakably unique sound."

This will be the first North American vinyl pressings for each album since their respective initial releases on Touch and Go. Latino Bugger Veil had, however, previously reissued the albums on CD.

Judging by press materials, all the tracklistings appear to be the same as those on the original albums. Despite this lack of bonus material, each record will come packaged with a download card.

While the Butthole Surfers haven't offered up any new tunes of late, vocalist Gibby Haynes did issue his solo 7-inch for Third Man Records a few months back. The record included two new tunes and a cover of Adrenalin O.D.'s "Paul's Not Home."
