Exit_International Announce 'Black Junk' 10th Anniversary Vinyl Reissue

Thursday, 29 July 2021 Written by Jon Stickler

Exit_International's 'Black Junk' is to be reissued to celebrate its 10th anniversary.

The expanded remastered edition of the South Wales trio's Welsh Music Prize-nominated debut will arrive on limited edition 180gm coloured vinyl on September 17. It'll feature the original tracklist along with three previously unreleased bonus tracks. Vocalist Scott Lee Andrews said:

"'Black Junk' still sounds to me as fresh as when we wrote and recorded it, we were not part of any scene and really doing our own thing. You can hear the absence of overthinking things. We wrote these songs really quickly - from what I recall it was on a rehearsal to rehearsal basis then gigging them to just tighten the performances. We spent 2/3 days in total tracking the songs with most of that time spent fixing broken studio gear with our producer Carl Bevan (Drummer of 60FT Dolls fame).

"Listening back reminds me how much we laughed and how fun that period was, with perfectly capturing that ridiculous lightning in a sonic bottle. It really does capture the absurd aspects of our personalities as people. It's a fantastic debut and I'm still so proud of it, and the doors it opened for us."

To celebrate the news, the band have shared an updated video for the remastered version of their hit single Chainsaw Song, a scuzzy whirlwind of raucous groove-driven rock noise. Head to SaySomething Records for pre-orders.
