Pavement is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the album that started it all, Slanted & Enchanted, which was released on this day 30 years ago on Matador. To celebrate, the band and label are reissuing vinyl and cassette pressing exclusives in honor of the anniversary.

On August 12th, a limited-edition run of the original LP on red, white and black splatter vinyl will be available for purchase. There will also be a cassette tape called Courting Shutdown Offers, which is a replica of the tape Pavement used to pitch Slanted & Enchanted to labels.

The second season premiere of Matador’s Revisionist History podcast was also released today and features Pavement’s Stephen Malkmus and Spiral Stairs who discuss “preparing for their upcoming reunion tour, dropping out of college to tour with Sonic Youth, and writing “In the Mouth a Desert” after an Earth Day spent tripping on mescaline,” according to a release.

The band will be on tour starting this summer, with dates spanning worldwide through the spring of 2023. This tour marks the first time Pavement has toured in over 10 years.
