Published Dec 16, 2013Following a Record Store Day-specific repress of fallen Canuck hardcore crew Cursed's 2003 LP I last spring, Deathwish Inc. has revealed plans to reissue follow-up outings II and III in 2014.
Though a specific street date has not yet been given, a recent Facebook post from the label confirms that the II reissue lands early next year. Originally released through the now-defunct Goodfellow label in 2005, the album is said to be presented "using brand new pressing plates, making the release sound more monstrous than ever before."
Additionally, it will be preserved in a gatefold jacket featuring revamped artwork, which you can see up above.
Details on the III repress have yet to arrive, but presumably the 2007 album, also issued at the time via Goodfellow, will receive similar treatment.
After the records have been pressed on their own, Deathwish Inc. and Cursed vocalist Chris Colohan's (currently in Burning Love, formerly of Left for Dead, Ruination, the Swarm) own High Anxiety imprint will partner up to deliver a box set featuring all three LPs and a book of Cursed-related material.
In related news, A389 Records will be releasing a series of 7-inches, later to be collected as an LP, for Colohan's Left for Dead in 2014. You can find out more over here.
