Refused, ‘The Shape of Punk to Come’ — Deluxe Edition

Refused‘s ‘The Shape of Punk to Come’ is largely considered a benchmark in the post-hardcore canon. The band eventually imploded, with ex-members going on to form the (International) Noise Conspiracy. Suffice it to say, nothing ever compared to ‘The Shape of Punk to Come,’ a record that Far singer Jonah Matranga, who had heard the music before its release, told me was going to change the musical landscape. He was right. Even a luminary like Rage Against the Machine‘s Tom Morello gave props to Refused, referring to ‘New Noise’ as “one of the great rock jams of all time.”

Epitaph plans to re-introduce this classic into the marketplace with ‘The Shape of Punk to Come’ deluxe edition, which will hit shelves on June 8. Hopefully, a new generation of metal and hardcore fans will be exposed to this essential album.

The deluxe version will offer quite the Refused fix: It’s three discs, among them the full-length album, a previously unreleased live album recorded at the Umeå Open festival in their hometown Umeå, Sweden on April 3, 1998, and the ‘Refused Are F—ing Dead’ documentary on DVD, which collects interviews, backstage footage and live performances that document the band’s meteoric rise and fall. You can also view the trailer for the documentary.

A breakdown of the deluxe editions (physical and digital) are listed below.
