Published Apr 10, 2018Having released Destroyer's 11th album last year with ken, two of Dan Bejar's earlier LPs are now set to return to vinyl for the first time in years.
Today, Merge announced that Destroyer's 1998 LP City of Daughters and 2000's Thief will come back to the format on May 25. Both albums have been out of print individually since their initial release, fetching sums ranging from around $40 to over $130 on resale sites such as Discogs. In 2009, though, both albums were remastered and reissued together as double-album set back in 2009 via Nominal Records.
For the new Merge reissues, the two LPs will be pressed on limited-edition coloured vinyl, with City of Daughters arriving on red wax, while Thief will see release on "orange creamsicle."
