Celebrating its 35th anniversary, Mute / BMG announce a special edition of A WAY OF LIFE, the third studio album by influential electronic-punk duo SUICIDE, to be released on 26th May.
Although the band barely received any credit during their career, Suicide are cited as one of the most inspirational bands of the 1970s, influencing the likes Soft Cell, Depeche Mode and The Jesus And Mary Chain, whilst garnering fans in Nick Cave, Jim Thirlwell, M.I.A., Spiritualized, Lydia Lunch, Bobby Gillespie and Savages to name a few. Originally released in 1988, more than a decade after their iconic self-titled album, A Way of Life saw Alan Vega & Martin Rev once again team up with The Cars’ frontman Ric Ocasek to produce “nine creepily ingratiated industrial pop songs” (Pitchfork).
Limited 35th Anniversary Transparent Blue Edition Vinyl. Remastered & Expanded Edition with Art Card and 2 Bonus Tracks. Fully remastered by Denis Blackham (Skye Mastering). Includes 4 Page Booklet.
