$45.00

Reissue of 2009 Skeletons in the closet, with an added new record of rarities from 2010-2018. Comes with digital dl codes.

It includes 13 new b-sides, demos and alternate versions of songs from 2010-2018 plus the original 33 tracks. It's almost 3 hours of music on 4 colored vinyl records. New Jacket and additional inner sleeve art too, and includes 45 minutes of previously unreleased music. It's up for presale at store.murderbydeath.com and ships June 1

If you're one of the rare folks who has an original pressing of this and you just want the new content it will also be available digitally on Bandcamp, track by track so you can get the audio without having the shell out for the whole thing again. Tried to figure out a way to press just the additional record and just didn't work out due to logistical problems.

Tracks 22-32: Lo-Fi Live 2000-2009
