Severed Heads reissue streak continues with 'Dead Eyes Opened' on Dark Entries

Industrial synth-pop reissues are like buses, eh?

You wait forever for one to come along, and then two labels announce plans to repress a trio of records by Aussie oddballs Severed Heads.

In addition to Medical Records’ forthcoming repress of 1983’s Since The Accident and 1985’s City Slab Horror, San Francisco reissue specialists Dark Entries will offer an extended version of the group’s biggest hit, ‘Dead Eyes Opened’.

The single will come with two more tracks, ‘Bullet’ and ‘Mount’, plus a poster featuring a photo of the band on one side and liner notes and press clippings on the back.

Meanwhile Dark Entries have outlined a couple more reissues on the way – Executive Slacks’ self-titled 1983 album and Xymox’s Subsequent Pleasures.

All three releases will come out on July 12 to mark the label’s fifth anniversary, which will also be celebrated by a US tour.

The label will also dip its toe into fresh water this spring with the release of two brand new albums, one from Dutch industrial outfit Sumerian Fleet and another from San Francisco’s REDREDRED. [via RA]
