Stereolab Announce Reissue Campaign, Release Full Tour Schedule

Stereolab have been teasing a forthcoming reunion over the past couple months. First, they were announced as part of the bill at the Primavera Sound festival and then they were confirmed as headliners for the Desert Daze festival in California—the band’s first North American show in 11 years. Today, Stereolab announced the full schedule for their first world tour since 2009, set to begin at the end of May in Belgium. The 40-date tour will end with a North American run of shows this fall.

The band has also unveiled plans for a year-long reissue campaign that will see them share new deluxe editions of all seven of their Elektra studio albums recorded between 1993-2004, according to a press statement. Reissues for 1993’s Transient Random Noise-Bursts With Announcements and 1994’s Mars Audiac Quintet will be released on May 3 on expansive limited-edition deluxe vinyl and CD sets, as well as on streaming services. Other album reissues are scheduled for sometime in August and November. The new editions will feature the remastered version of the original record, along with bonus material including alternate takes, four-track demos, unreleased mixes, and more.

Along with the announcement, Stereolab have released a new trailer teasing both the reissue campaign and tour, and unveiled an early mix of the track “French Disco.” Check out the full tour schedule and trailer, and listen to “French Disco [Early Version Mix],” below.
