The new editions of the record will be released on January 31st 2020.

1989’s Raw Like Sushi will also be re-issued on special edition alternative gold vinyl and on single CD and vinyl formats and be available digitally.

The box sets are to include a 12×12 book with photos, interviews about the album, liner notes and memorabilia.
