Royal Trux's 'Veterans of Disorder' Set for Reissue

Royal Trux's 'Veterans of Disorder' Set for Reissue
Drag City's steady reissuing of the Royal Trux back catalogue is about to receive another entry, with the latest repress slotted to be for the band's Veterans of Disorder LP.

This latest pressing arrives November 19, just over 14 years after the original recordings surfaced in 1999. The follow-up to 1998's Accelerator was a wide-ranging collection, with the label noting "VOD's songs seldom sound as if they're coming from the same session as each other."

Though still delivering sleazy rawk riffs on tracks like opener "Waterpark," the LP also threaded jazzier textures into closer "Blue Is the Frequency," which also had guitarist Neil Hagerty running wild with an extensive guitar solo and capping the track with slip-sliding pedal steel. Elsewhere, "Sickazz Dog" is described as a "musique concrète/pop opera romp."

Veterans of Disorder was recorded at a number of studios "in and around the woods of rural Virginia," including their own home-studio set-up. It was the band's third to last LP before calling it quits in the early 2000s.
