Pavement reissue delayed

'Brighten The Corners' deluxe is pushed back to December

The reissue of Pavement‘s landmark album ‘Brighten The Corners’ has been delayed.

The indie legends’ fourth studio album, originally released 1997, was set to be reissued next month, but the release date has now been pushed back to December 9 because of “delays at the vinyl press”, according to a statement from the Matador record label.

This is the latest in the series of the band’s albums to get the special treatment from the label, which is reissuing an LP by the band every two years.

‘Brighten The Corners: Nicene Creedence Edition’ will feature a remastered version of the original album, bonus material includes B-sides and compilation tracks from that period in the band’s career, plus unreleased live and studio tracks and a 62-page bound companion book, as previously reported.

Meanwhile, Pavement frontman Stephen Malkmus kicks off his North American fall tour in Calgary tonight (October 23) with his band The Jicks.
