High On Fire To Release Deluxe Edition Of “The Art Of Self Defense”


GRAMMMY Award-winning sludgy doom metal trio High On Fire will be celebrating their 25th anniversary this year with a reissue of their 2000 debut album “The Art Of Self Defense“. MNRK Heavy will be dropping a re-mixed (by original producer Billy Anderson) and remastered (by Justin Weis) version of that record on August 04th.

An alternate cover and the songs from the band’s self-titled demo release will also be included on this new version of the outing, which will arrive on vinyl, CD and presumably digital formats. Pre-orders for it are available here.

The band’s vocalist/guitarist Matt Pike commented:

High On Fire wishes to thank everyone that has supported our efforts over the last 25 years, including the labels, road crews, friends, and families, but most importantly the FANS. We are looking forward to celebrating this milestone with everyone and sharing new music soon.”

In other news, early 2024 will see release of the band’s already completed ninth studio album. The band tracked that effort at God City in Salem, MA with Converge‘s Kurt Ballou behind the boards. Thus far, that effort remains untitled.
