REFUSED's 'The Shape Of Punk To Come' To Be Released As A Deluxe Edition

Epitaph Records has announced plans to release a deluxe edition of one of the most influential hardcore albums of all time, "The Shape of Punk to Come" from groundbreaking Swedish band REFUSED, on June 8.

The deluxe edition of "The Shape of Punk to Come" will be released as a three-disc collection that will include the essential full-length CD, a never-before-released mind-blowing live album and the classic-yet-bittersweet documentary "Refused Are Fucking Dead" on DVD.

Watch the trailer below.

Originally released in 1998, "The Shape of Punk to Come" "blurs the lines that separate punk, metal and hardcore, while peppering this brutal fusion with bits of techno percussion, jazzy rhythmic change-ups and long, complex song structures that support politically-charged messages," (CMJ, 1998). REFUSED's most critically acclaimed and final album exploded on the scene with the jaw-dropping hardcore anthem "New Noise", which RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE guitarist Tom Morello once described as "one of the great rock jams of all time" (Filter, 2006), and helped change the game forever influencing a range of genres still to this day.

In addition to "The Shape of Punk to Come", the bundle also includes the long-rumored-about unreleased, incendiary live album that was recorded at the Umeå Open festival in their hometown Umeå, Sweden on April 3, 1998 and the 80-minute DVD documentary "Refused Are Fucking Dead" that includes interviews, backstage footage and live performances that chronicle the rise and fall of one of hardcore's most revered bands.
