Butthole Surfers Kick Off Reissue Campaign With First Release

Butthole Surfers have just released a special 10" remastered version of their vinyl of their classic 1987 album, Locust Abortion Technician, which marks the band's first release since 2007's compilation Pioughd/Widowmaker.

Guitarist Paul Leary had this to say, "Sometime in 1986, the band decided that we were tired of living on the road, that it was time to find a home. We were in San Francisco at the time, and chose our new home town by throwing a dart at a map.

"The dart landed on Athens, Georgia, so off to Georgia we went. We soon realized that we couldn't actually afford to rent a house in Athens, but were able to find a 2-bedroom rental house in tiny nearby Winterville. We used our meager savings to purchase an old Ampex 8-track tape machine, two microphones, and recorded what would become our third full-length LP 'Locust Abortion Technician'".

The release is part of the band's 30th anniversary celebration and kicks off kicking off a series of remastered releases throughout the next year, as well as their first new music in 15 years that they will be releasing in 2018. Get your copy here.
