Due to be issued in a variety of formats, the much-acclaimed album's new edition will be out on October 29.
The reissue be presented in the record's original format: as a 45-RPM single housed in a black and white jacket featuring photography by Michael Stipe.
If ever a band proved you can play rock’n’roll and retain your integrity, that band was R.E.M. as the best R.E.M. songs prove.
With their ‘Monster’ album, R.E.M. got back to making what guitarist Peter Buck described as a "real noisy rock’n’roll record”.
R.E.M. were one of the most influential and beloved rock bands of the last 40 years, comprised of Michael Stipe, Bill Berry, Peter Buck, and Mike Mills.
Available on all formats, the album's new edition offers a host of new audio and video extras.
Available for the first time on vinyl in over 15 years, the album includes 18 songs from the Athens, GA alt-rockers, spanning 1988’s 'Green' to 2001’s 'Reveal', plus two previously unreleased tracks.
Part 3 in the audio series features archive interviews with Michael Stipe and Peter Buck, and excerpts from their box set and album of performances aired by the BBC.
