Royal Trux comp Singles, Live, Unreleased gets Drag City re-release; they'll wait for you to call your dealer

Almost 14 years to the day after its original release on Drag City, Royal Trux’s only compilation album, the aptly titled (except for the last item in the list) Singles, Live, Unreleased, is set to be released once again on Drag City. Available as a triple LP, a double CD, or a single digital download, the album will be re-released on November 8 and is available for pre-order now.

When the compilation originally came out, Royal Trux founders Neil Hagerty and Jennifer Herrema were emerging from their much-discussed heroin addiction and returning to their roots on Drag City after a stint with major label Virgin. Why bring back this hodgepodge of tracks now? Will sloppy noise rock be the next thing to re-emerge as a renamed genre for up-and-comers to emulate without any of the dedication to the substance abuse that made it possible in the first place? We’re almost to 2012, so put your order in now to catch up on the seminal heroin-jangle group of the roaring 90s and then place your bets for what’s to come….
