Sonic Youth to reissue classic early albums

Sonic Youth will reissue their 1988 album Daydream Nation next month [June].

The band confirmed a series of reissue plans via a post on their official website on May 5.

The original 2xLP and CD editions of Daydream Nation will be released on June 10 alongside the CD edition of Ciccone Youth's The Whitey Album via the band's own label distributed by Revolver/Midheaven. Ciccone Youth is a Sonic Youth side project with Minutemen/Firehose member Mike Watt, who released their one and only album in 1988.

Daydream Nation and The Whitey Album will be followed on undisclosed dates by LP and CD editions of Sonic Youth's currently out-of-print pre-Geffen catalogue including Bad Moon Rising, EVOL, Sister, Confusion Is Sex and a DVD edition of Screaming Fields of Sonic Love with bonus material.
