New York‘s crossover punk rock/rap legends BEASTIE BOYS announce they have special plans to celebrate the recent 30th anniversary of their sophomore album release, ‘Paul’s Boutique‘.
Reaching that milestone in July, the occasion has inspired a limited edition colored vinyl reissue of ‘Paul’s Boutique,‘ as well as three other records – ‘Ill Communication‘, the ‘Root Down‘ EP, and ‘To The 5 Boroughs‘. Three of these records are celebrating significant anniversaries this year, with ‘Paul’s Boutique‘ at its 30th, ‘Ill Communication‘ reaching its 25th anniversary, and ‘To The 5 Boroughs‘ turning 15.
‘Paul’s Boutique‘ will be pressed onto 180-gram violet vinyl; ‘Ill Communication‘ on silver vinyl, ‘To The 5 Boroughs‘ on blue vinyl, and the ‘Root Down‘ EP will be on a randomly selected color vinyl. You can either purchase the records separately or in a t-shirt bundle option.
All albums are set to arrive on October 4th and available to pre-order now at the official BEASTIE BOYS webstore.
