The Undertones are set to re-release their first two albums, 1979's self titled 'The Undertones' and 1980's 'Hypnotised' to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the band and birth of Punk in 1976.
Both acclaimed LPs have been remastered using the original tapes and will be released digitally and on 180g heavyweight vinyl (with original replicated artwork) on October 7th.
Also released will be a 7" remix of their classic 1979 single 'Get Over You' on red vinyl, remixed by My Bloody Valentine guitarist and shoegaze pioneer Kevin Shields.
