Less than a week removed from their first gig in nearly a decade, Pulp have expanded their 2011 reunion plans to include the reissuing of the band’s first three albums. NME reports that their 1983 debut It, 1987’s Freaks, and 1992’s Separations will all be re-released in the U.K. on August 8th with new artwork and updated liner notes from rock critic Everett True. What’s more, Freaks will feature two bonus tracks, “Little Girl” and “Dogs Are Everywhere”, while “Separations” will contain previously unreleased cuts titled “Death Goes To Disco” and “Is This House”, plus an extended version of the album track “Countdown”.

As of press time, it was not known if the reissues will also receive a U.S. release.

After conquering Primavera Sound last week, Pulp will next play the UK-based Isle of Wight Festival on June 11th. They’ll then take a three-week breather before becoming fully immersed in the U.K. and European festival circuits with stops at T in the Park, Wireless Festival, and Oya Festival, among other festivals. They’ll also be visiting Australia in late July, but as of now, North American remains without a scheduled performance. Find all confirmed tour dates below.
