Slint have announced that their 1991 album Spiderland will be reissued.

A remastered version of the post-rockers’ second album will be available on April 15 on CD and heavyweight vinyl.

The set will feature the new version of the album, which has been remastered from the original analog master tapes by producer Bob Weston. It will also feature 14 previously unreleased outtakes and demos selected by the band.

The release will also feature a book with previously unseen photographs and a foreword written by Will Oldham. The vinyl version will be limited to 3,138 copies worldwide.

It will also feature a DVD of Breadcrumb Trail, a new 90-minute DVD documentary about the band and the making of Spiderland. Directed by Lance Bangs, the film features interviews with Slint, as well as Steve Albini, James Murphy, David Yow, Ian Mackaye, and Matt Sweeney.

Slint formed in 1986 and broke up shortly before Spiderland was released. In 2005, they reunited to headline the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival at Camber Sands, followed by a subsequent 18-date tour. In 2007, the band performed Spiderland in its entirety for a series of European shows. In late 2013, they co-headlined the final All Tomorrow’s Parties weekend at Camber Sands.
