Thunder have confirmed that their first three alums – 1990’s Backstreet Symphony, 1992’s Laughing On Judgement Day and 1995’s Behind Closed Doors – will be rereleased in expanded form on April 28.
According to Louder Sound, a number of live tracks have been used to expand the albums, dating from a live version of “In A Broken Dream” recorded at Club Citta in Kawasaki, Japan, in 2000, to an acoustic version of “Preaching From A Chair” recorded at Tackle Out Studio in Hove in 2019.
The first of the extra tracks has been made available: a live version of “A Better Man”, recorded at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire in 2005.
Each album will be available as a CD digipak and as a limited edition double coloured vinyl set. Backstreet Symphony will comprise one gold disc and one silver disc, Laughing On Judgement Day will come in white and blue, and Behind Closed Doors will mix clear and red discs.
It’s the first time the three albums have been available on vinyl since their release and are available to pre-order now.
