Beastie Boys’ Ill Communication Reissue Due Out on July 14

     

    Back when the Beasties officially announced the release of their upcoming new album, Hot Sauce Committee Part 1, the group also mentioned that two of their mid-90s albums, Ill Communication (which features “Sabotage”) and Hello Nasty, this summer. Well, Ill Communication is due out next week already, and like the similarly huge reissues for Paul’s Boutique and Check Your Head, this thing is coming out in a bunch of different iterations and with 12 bonues tracks.

     

    The band’s website is taking pre-orders for the different reissue packages (there are four), ranging from a $16.98 digital version to an extremely limited collector’s edition (only 1500 copies) that comes on vinyl and will run you $89.98.

     

    The reissue for Hello Nasty is due out on August 25, while Hot Sauce is due on September 15.
