codeine Codeine reunites, announces reissues

Earlier today we told you that Codeine, the New York-bred slowcore outfit, would be reuniting after 18 years at All Tomorrow’s “I’ll Be Your Mirror” London 2012. Now, via their artist bio page on ATP’s website (via Exclaim!), we also learn that the band plans to perform a “very limited series of concerts in the U.S, UK, and Europe” (dates still forthcoming), in addition to reissuing all three of their studio albums.

According to Exclaim!, each of the band’s three albums — 1990′s Frigid Stars, 1992′s Barely Real, and 1994′s The White Birch – will be released in deluxe, double vinyl sets on May 9th, 2012 by Numero Group. All three sets will include “elaborate packaging and detailed liner notes, and will be accompanied by period appropriate singles, demos, Peel Sessions, and live tracks.” Below, you can find the tracklistings for all three reissues.

Numero Group also plans to package all three reissues into a limited edition box set.

Tickets for All Tomorrow’s Parties go on sale Friday, November 11th and you can click here for more details. Codeine will perform on the festival’s second day on May 26th.
