Metallica stream Garage Days Re-Revisited reissue preview

Metallica are streaming a pair of covers as a preview to the April 13 reissue their 1987 collection, "The $5.98 EP – Garage Days Re-Revisited."

Fans can hear remastered versions of the group’s take on Budgie’s 1974 track, "Crash Course In Brain Surgery", and “The Wait” from Killing Joke’s 1980 self-titled debut from the project, which has been out-of-print and will be available later this week for the first time in decades.

Upon its original release, the EP peaked at No. 28 on the US Billboard 200 on its way to sales of more than a million copies in the country.

The 2018 reissue will be available in a variety of formats.

“Keeping with our 80's theme,” says the band, “the remastered EP will not only be released as a CD and download, but also as several vinyl versions including a picture disc, as a cassette, and in a longbox (you youngsters can search the web for that term!).”

Metallica are currently playing dates across Europe in support of their tenth album, “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct.”

The 2016 record debuted at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 to deliver the group their sixth US chart-topper.
