On the occasion, vocalist Jordan Blilie muses: “As we’ve been putting together the 20th anniversary reissue of Crimes, what I’m struck by most listening back is the energy. It feels both feral and weirdly focused, like whatever chemistry we’d been tinkering with had finally crystallized. It was on stage, though, where that energy reached its most joyful, reckless, collective state. It’s an experience that never really goes away, and one we wanted to share again. So, we’ll be playing a handful of shows this fall. We hope to see you there.

The deluxe 20th anniversary limited collector’s edition of Crimes will include an expanded double LP with B-Sides & etching, plus a twenty-page booklet with new liner notes and photos. The Epitaph webstore will carry 1,200 copies on black and baby blue A side/B side vinyl while Smartpunk will have 300 copies of baby blue and bubblegum pink half & half vinyl on deck. There will also be 1,700 copies of bubblegum pink and baby blue A side/B side vinyl available at retail stores worldwide.
