Jawbreaker albums to be re-issued

It seems like crazy talk that it's been 20 years since the original release of two of Jawbreaker's most seminal albums---but it has been. And Blackball Records is going to present the 20th Anniversary Editions of Jawbreaker's Bivouac and Chesterfield King because of it. Originally released in 1992, these groundbreaking records have been remastered by John Golden from the original tapes. The increased sampling rate boosts some of the bottom end and mid-range. The vinyl versions are available for the first time in several years. The CD and download versions of Bivouac include the songs from the Chesterfield King 12", as well as two bonus tracks from the original studio session. This reissue features restored original artwork, and all formats include additional band photos from the time of recording. "Shield Your Eyes", "Parabola", "Chesterfield King" and "Bivouac" remained set list staples throughout Jawbreaker's run.
