The Go! Team are ringing in the 20th anniversary of Thunder, Lightning, Strike, their eclectic debut album, with a reissue and a fall tour. The new edition of the LP, out September 13 via Memphis Industries, comes with a bonus disc of band member Ian Parton’s original CD-R versions of the songs in all their 2004 glory, which will be available on both the CD and vinyl reissues. Listen to the CD-R version of “The Power Is On” and a Cornershop remix of “Everyone’s a V.I.P. to Someone” below.

The Rough Trade exclusive version of Thunder, Lightning, Strike’s reissue also comes with a 7″ featuring new versions of “Hold Yr Terror Close” by the Pastels and the Orielles. Those are the first in a series of remixes that the Go! Team requested from “a range of artists they love and admire.” The rest of those will be released throughout 2024.

The Go! Team kick off their Thunder, Lightning, Strike 20th anniversary tour on September 26 in Edinburgh, Scotland. After three more dates in Europe, the band will fly over to the United States for five concerts: one each in Chicago, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. Opening those shows will be La Sécurité. Check out the Go! Team’s complete list of tour dates below.
