Sam Roberts Band Share Expanded 'Chemical City' Reissue for Album's 15th Anniversary
The new version includes four previously unreleased songs
Published Apr 16, 2021Sam Roberts recently showed us his favourite rock shirt, but that's not the only navel-gazing he's done this week. To celebrate 15 years of his Band's Chemical City, he's shared an expanded reissue.
As the artist details in an Instagram post, Roberts explained that the album initially had four extra songs that were left off of the original album over miscommunications with their label. As such, Chemical City was a 10-song release with only three of its four sides pressed on vinyl.
For its anniversary, the band have restored the release to include the previously rare or lost tracks. They are "Major Minor" and "The Cathedral" — both of which have never before been released — and "Fall Before You Finish" and "Step Inside," which were released as B-sides but have now been remixed for inclusion here.
