The New York slowcore trio Codeine released three albums of pained, churning epicness in the early ’90s before parting ways in 1994. But, like almost every band on the face of the planet, they’re ready to get back together. As the Quietus reports, Codeine will release deluxe reissues of all three of their albums this year, and all three original members will also get back together to play their first shows since their breakup.
On 5/7, Numero Group will reissue those three albums as beautifully packaged vinyl/CD sets, with singles, demos, Peel Sessions, and live tracks included. (There’s also a limited-edition set of all three albums; only 1000 of those are being pressed.) And they’ll play All Tomorrow’s Parties’ I’ll Be Your Mirror festival in London, which takes over the Alexandria Palace 5/25-27. After that, they’re also planning shows in the U.S. and Europe.
