Previously out-of-print set now available
Celebrating the 25th anniversary of Beastie Boys’ multi-Platinum-selling album “Hello Nasty,” on Sept. 8, UME will reissue the highly sought-after and long-out-of-print, limited deluxe-edition 4-LP box set originally released as a limited run in 2009. The collection will feature 21 bonus tracks, including rarities, remixes and B-sides. Pressed on 180-gram vinyl in an eight-panel gatefold package housed in a hardcover “coffee table book” slipcase with a removable sew-on patch, “Beastie Boys – Hello Nasty (4LP Deluxe Edition)” is now available for preorder at Beastie Boys’ official online store, here.
Preceded by the universal smash “Intergalactic,” “Hello Nasty” crashed into the No. 1 spots of charts worldwide upon its July 1998 release, with first week sales of nearly 700,000 in the U.S. alone. Buoyed by the launch of the 360-in-the-round tour, “Hello Nasty” would yield B Boys classics “Body Movin,’ ” “Three MCs and One DJ,” “Remote Control,” “Super Disco Breakin’ ” and more, win two Grammys, see the band presented with an MTV Video Vanguard lifetime achievement award, and ultimately sell some 7 million copies worldwide.
