SLUGGO! DONE RIGHT!
My 1997 album Sluggo! has been out of print forever, but it’s finally coming back!
It’s now available in a variety of formats featuring a great deal of unreleased audio and video material, and featuring new 2013 stereo and surround mixes of the Sluggo! album.
I’ve always felt the album is really good, but I’ve had reservations about the mix forever. It’s a long story (told at length in the new liner notes in the reissue packaging), but the upshot is I’m finally completely happy with the sound of the album. Sixteen years after recording it, I finally feel like I’ve finished Sluggo!
Sluggo! is available in four formats:
1) Sluggo! Deluxe (1-CD/2-DVD package) $34
- Same-day download of the 2013 Stereo Mix of Sluggo! in mp3 or FLAC
- CD with 2013 Stereo Mix of Sluggo! plus 2 bonus tracks
- DVD-A with PCM 16/48 Stereo, DTS 24/48 5.1 Digital Surround, MLP 24/96 Lossless Stereo & MLP 24/96 Lossless 5.1 Surround

2) Sluggo! SuperDeluxe (2-CD/2-DVD package), $49

And I am feeling super grateful to have just spent some amazing months on the road with Joe Satriani, Marco Minnemann and Bryan Beller touring around Europe and North America. Amazing times. And super grateful to have been a part of Metalocalypse THE DOOMSTAR REQUIEM which just aired on [adult swim]. I’m very glad about the many cool things happening, I hope things are going well for you too – talk to you soon!
