Stereolab, who went on hiatus in 2009, had previously announced some reunion festival appearances. Now they have announced a full-fledged reunion tour, their first in a decade, that includes dates in America, United Kingdom, and Europe. They have also announced that they will be releasing seven reissues this year and have shared the rarity “French Disco (Early Version Mix).” The reissues series starts with 1993’s Transient Random Noise-Bursts With Announcements and 1994’s Mars Audiac Quintet, both due out May 3 on Warp/Duophonic UHF Disks. Check out “French Disco (Early Version Mix)” and the tour dates below, as well as a trailer.

In August the band will reissue of Emperor Tomato Ketchup, Dots and Loops, and Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage in the Milky Night. In November they will reissue Sound-Dust and Margerine Eclipse. Each reissue will be on vinyl, CD, and digital.

A press release describes the reissues this way: “Each album has been re-mastered from the original half-inch tapes by Bo Kondren at Calyx Mastering and overseen by [Stereolab’s Tim] Gane. Bonus material will include alternate takes, four-track demos, and unreleased mixes. Initial editions of each album will be pressed onto triple clear vinyl with an exclusive poster and insert featuring sleeve notes by Gane. They will also include a lottery style scratch card with a chance to win a limited edition 12” EP. The band have also produced a super limited vinyl edition of 500 clear vinyl copies and 250 compact disks - each will have a numbered obi band made from two-inch 24 track Stereolab master tape, only available from the Stereolab website.”
