The first five albums will be released via Nuclear Blast on November 30.

The re-designed album artwork was completed by Keerych Luminokaya who created the artwork for the band's 2012 release "Koloss". For the remastering of the albums, the band returned to Thomas Eberger of Stockholm Mastering, who worked with the band on "The Violent Sleep of Reason".

MESHUGGAH drummer Tomas Haake recently said that fans shouldn't expect to see a new studio album from the band before "2020 at the earliest."

The Swedish group's last disc, "The Violent Sleep Of Reason", came out in 2016 and resulted in a "Best Metal Performance" Grammy nomination for the song "Clockworks".

"The Violent Sleep Of Reason" was produced by the band and was engineered by Tue Madsen of Puk Studios in Kaerby, Denmark.
