Gold-foiled stamped and individually numbered.

    Yay! I’ll be spending my money on Incesticide 20th anniversary edition. It’s why I don’t own it because I’m waiting to see if they’re doing a 20th anniversary thing like they did with Nevermind. <3

  • That Guy

    They probably won’t due a huge thing like they did with Nevermind because Incesticide wasn’t as huge an album, but In Utero should have something big out in a year.

  • LayneinChains

    I wish Layne didn’t have that sumo wrestler pony tail on the cover. He always looked so cool except that time.

  • Russ

    Is it not going to be released as a CD?

  • Dennis

    Shucks, I just threw my record player away yesterday. Seriously? Vinyl?

  • zobi

    remastered = sh*t brickwalled. whats the point?
    I’ll keep listening to my original pressing.

  • bon3z

    don’t understand why you americans so excited about remasters and re-editions… that stuff is for idiots willing to give away their money for nothing…

  • Maverick785

    The live version of “I Don’t Know Anything” probably came from their Self Pollution Radio set

  • Deviate

    I would like to have the Mad Season single vinyl.

  • me

    both good releases. in utero i hope will see a deluxe version like nevermind which was very good. dave and krist have said they have a few surprises in mind for in utero. they should include “lullaby” as it is a confirmed track and us fans have been waiting for that one. we will see. the nirvana vault is not dry.

  • danalog

    Yeah bon3z, why the hell would I want to buy a limited edition, 10″ colored vinyl with an unreleased live song by one of my favorite bands on record store day?? What kind of idiot American am I!!??

    Oh and a historic Nirvana album formatted for 180-gram, 45rpm vinyl?! Fuck that! What a waste of my hard earned money!

  • Unglued

    Then why are you here?
    Its good to see nirvana reissue and mad season’s
    kurt and layne are my favorite singer!!!

  • Gold

    I think this is one of the most vital info for me. And i am glad reading your article.
    But want to remark on few general things, The web site style is great, the
    articles is really excellent : D. Good job,

  • setup

    Thanks for finally talking about > 90’s Alternative Rock News ? Blog Archive ? MAD SEASON AND NIRVANA RELEASES SCHEDULED FOR RECORD STORE DAY < Loved it!

  • Dave Rabbitt

    What a lot of drivel.

    Release Mad Season’s Album.

    But lets face it, the GREEDY business are stopping that.

    So now they are going to drip feed the album on some poxy 10″ single.

    Waste of money I won’t bother unless the release the FULL ALBUM

  • Christine

    Blame BMG/Geffen, I’m guessing they own the right.

    Although why they wouldn’t do a digital remaster with the help of Brendan O’Brien or Butch Vig is beyond me.

    Vedder is probably pissed about the first one, CLover oblivious to the second.

  • Katie

    Definitely buying the Mad Season vinyl.
