2014 marks the 20th anniversary of Soundgarden’s acclaimed fourth album, Superunknown, and the band plans to mark the occasion with a massive five-disc reissue.

Due out June 3rd via A&M Records/UME, the Super Deluxe Edition of Superunknown includes a remastered copy of the album, as well as a mix of the album in Blu-ray Audio 5.1 Surround Sound, plus demos, rehearsals, and B-sides. It also includes a hardbound book with a lenticular cover, liner notes by David Fricke, never-before-seen photographs, and newly reimagined album artwork designed by Josh Graham.

The reissue will also be available as a two-disc Deluxe Edition and a two-LP gatefold featuring the original 16 vinyl tracks remastered on 200-gram vinyl. Furthermore, the Superunknown singles and associated b-sides with the new artwork will be reissued on Record Store Day (April 19th) as a set of five limited edition 10″ vinyl records.
