Posted: January 12, 2022 in MUSIC

Pavement has announced the deluxe reissue of 1999’s Terror Twilight, dubbed Terror Twilight: Farewell Horizontal, out on April 8th via Matador Records. Alongside this news, the band shared a previously unreleased single, “Be The Hook”.

Terror Twilight, Pavement’s fifth and final album, also becomes the fifth album to see a deluxe release from Matador Records. In addition to a remastered version of the original album, this expansive set will include 28 unreleased tracks including B-sides, home demos, rehearsal tapes, era-appropriate live recordings, and cuts from the band’s scrapped session at Sonic Youth‘s Echo Canyon Studio.

Matador will offer “Terror Twilight: Farewell Horizontal on multiple formats, including a 4xLP set and a 2xCD set, both arriving with a collection of never-before-seen photos and commentary from members Mark IboldStephen MalkmusBob NastanovichSpiral Stairs, and Steve West, as well as the album’s producer, Nigel Godrich. While the CD version will keep the final track order intact, the 4xLP set will feature Godrich’s suggested sequence.

Originally released in 1999, ‘Terror Twilight’ marked a departure from Pavement’s established operating methods. Which is to say that it was recorded with a big-time producer in an expensive studio,” wrote Matador Records in a post to Facebook. “However, for all the talk of ‘polish’ and ‘precision’ it’s still very much a Pavement record. And a great one. Like every Pavement album that preceded it, ‘Terror Twilight’ thrills and confounds. Often at the same time. Twenty-two years on, the songs remain moody, strange, and eminently deserving of re-celebration.”

 The 45-track collection will include a remastered version of the album, B-sides, home demos, rehearsal tapes, live recordings, and some rough tracks from a session at Sonic Youth’s Echo Canyon studios. The physical editions will also come with a book containing photos and commentary from the band. The LP version will restore the track list sequence suggested by the album’s producer Nigel Godrich,
while the CD will retain the band’s final track order.

Terror Twilight: Farewell Horizontal is available to pre-order now. Pavement recently announced its 2022 reunion tour, which marks the band’s first run of shows since 2010. After its first performance at Primavera Sound in Barcelona, ES on June 2nd and Porto, PT on June 10th, the group will return stateside for the U.S. leg of the tour in September before heading to Europe in October. 

This was their final album, released in 1999.
The deluxe edition is titled ‘Terror Twilight: Farewell Horizontal’.
