So Others May Live” and “Stronger Than Me” were previously available on the Target edition of the band’s 2015 album “Long Live“, while “When The Day is Done” appeared on the Best Buy edition of that record. Pre-orders for this upcoming deluxe edition have been launched here.

Speaking of the release, the band’s drummer/vocalist Brandon Saller stated:

“I’m excited for these songs to see the light of day. To us, these are songs that we loved, but didn’t find a space within the album as a unit. To further that, we’re excited to have some older material that only saw limited release be fully available for our fans. As for the re-imagined tracks from ‘In Our Wake,’ this is something brand new to us and it was a really fun moment for us to re-think these songs. They turned into something special that we feel stand on its own.”

Bassist Porter McKnight added of his redesigned artwork for the outing:

“When the topic for the deluxe edition was introduced, my brain instantly exploded with fun avenues and ideas for re-developed imagery. I wanted something that flirted with my original ideas for ‘IOW,’ but took them down a new and darker path. I chose to invoke a classic punk/black metal feel with this one, and even ended up drawing the cover by hand. It’s always an honor and a pleasure to create something for this band.”
