Last week, Green Day's fourth studio album Insomniac turned 25 years old, and the punk vets have rolled out a slew of goodies to mark the milestone — including a newly remastered vinyl pressing.

The 2-LP set, pressed on orange vinyl, features the original album alongside eight previously unreleased live tracks from a 1996 world tour stop in Prague. The second LP features an etched B-side, with both records housed in a prismatic silver foil jacket.

Online, Green Day have also shared a 20-minute doc from the aforementioned tour, loaded with never-before-seen footage from their time in Europe, in addition to a performance of "Brain Stew" on MTV's Hanging Out.

You can find both of those below.

What's more, the band have also reprinted a number of merch designs from the era, which you can check out alongside the vinyl through their official website.
