It definitely has been a unique year for the Beastie Boys. Despite postponing the release of its brand new full-length, Hot Sauce Committee Part 1, and scrapping a slew of U.S. dates following MCA’s health problems, the Brookyln trio is trudging through with the re-releases.
On September 22nd, the Beastie Boys will offer their fourth and final reissue of the year when they relive 1998’s Hello Nasty. As with this year’s reissues of Check Your Head, Paul’s Boutique, and Ill Communication, the set will sport a bounty of goodies, including 21 bonus tracks and rarities (10 of which are previously unreleased), and be packaged in multiple configurations. These range from a digital download of the original album and b-sides to a 43-track 2-CD set, to a limited edition deluxe package of four 180-gram vinyl LPs featuring the deluxe remastered album, 21 bonus tracks and rarities, and Hello Nasty collectors edition patch in an 8-panel gatefold package enclosed in a hardcover “coffee table book” case.
Pre-order/digital release are now available via beastieboys.com. But if you’re looking to get the coffee book, you better hurry… the deluxe edition is limited to 1,500 copies.
