Los Angeles, CA (September 4, 2019) - Craft Recordings is excited to announce a 25th anniversary reissue of R.E.M.’s acclaimed ninth album, Monster. Remastered by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound. This five-CD, one-Blu-ray deluxe box set will include the original album, a special 2019 remix from Monster producer Scott Litt, a CD of previously unreleased demos from the album and a complete live 1995 performance captured in Chicago. The accompanying Blu-ray will offer Monster in both hi-resolution audio and 5.1 Surround Sound, as well as a host of video content: the 90-minute film Road Movie, which documents R.E.M.’s 1995 tour, and all six music videos from Monster. The collection will be packaged in a five-and-a-half-inch portfolio book, featuring liner notes by journalist Matthew Perpetua - with new insight from band members - and archival photographs.
