Metallica to re-release ‘The $5.98 EP – Garage Days Re-Revisited’

From the official Metallica website & Facebook page.

The remastered, reissue is re-revisited! That’s right, next up in our series of reissues is The $5.98 EP – Garage Days Re-Revisited, available for pre-order now and in stores on April 13th in time to celebrate Record Store Day. The long out of print EP included five songs that were later released as a part of the Garage, Inc. double album, but we thought it would be fun to bring them back now in the original format straight from 1987!

Keeping with our 80’s theme, the remastered EP will not only be released as a CD and download, but also as several vinyl versions including a picture disc, as a cassette, and in a longbox (you youngsters can search the web for that term!).  All pre-orders will receive an instant grat single of the remastered version of “The Wait.”

The reissue series will continue this year… we’ll let you guess what’s next (!).
