20 years ago this week, The Offspring released its breakout album “Smash” and made history. To celebrate, the band will begin playing the set in its entirety on tour in Europe this May, June and early July before finishing out the summer with soon-to-be-announced U.S. “Smash” dates.
In August, Epitaph will commemorate the anniversary with a special 20th-anniversary edition of “Smash”.
The “Smash” 20th-Anniversary Edition will include the following:
–LP version containing the original 14 album tracks newly remastered on 180-gram vinyl
–CD version containing the original 14 album tracks from the most recent remastering
–Restyled album package artwork
–Large-format 24-page booklet featuring never-before-seen archive photos by Lisa Johnson
–Firsthand recollections and quotes from the band and others telling the story of that historic time
The band is also offering a “collector’s box” combo as a companion piece to the “Smash” 20th-anniversary edition. The box will feature both the CD/vinyl package and a curated collection of commemorative items including a custom wood box, art print, photo prints, pin, patch, replica pass and guitar pick. Pre-orders are available now at Offspring.com.
“Smash” has sold over six million copies in the United States alone and 11 million worldwide.
