Sonic Youth to reissue 'Daydream Nation'
Sonic Youth will reissue their 1988 album 'Daydream Nation' next month (June).

The band, whose future is unclear following the breakdown of frontman Thurston Moore and bass player Kim Gordon's marriage in 2011, confirmed a series of reissue plans via a post on their official website earlier today (May 5).

The original 2xLP and CD editions of 'Daydream Nation' will be released on June 10 alongside the CD edition of Ciccone Youth's 'The Whitey Album' via the band's own label distributed by Revolver/Midheaven. Ciccone Youth is a Sonic Youth side project with Minutemen/Firehose member Mike Watt, who released their one and only album in 1988.

'Daydream Nation' and 'The Whitey Album' will be followed on undisclosed dates by LP and CD editions of Sonic Youth's currently out-of-print pre-Geffen catalogue including 'Bad Moon Rising', 'EVOL', 'Sister', 'Confusion is Sex' and a DVD edition of Screaming Fields of Sonic Love with bonus material.

The last time Sonic Youth members appeared on stage together came in late 2013 when Thurston Moore performed with Lee Ranaldo at a London show. Meanwhile, Kim Gordon joined Lorde and St. Vincent in fronting Nirvana as the band was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year.
