Moist Celebrate ‘Silver’ Anniversary’
In celebration of the 25th anniversary of their breakthrough debut album, Silver, Moist singer David Usher, guitarist Mark Makoway, and keyboardist Kevin Young will reunite with bassist Jeff Pearce to tour together as a unit for the first time since 2013.
In addition to summer festival appearances, Moist will also perform Silver in its entirety (as well as favourites from their 25-plus year career) at select venues across Canada.
In recognition of this milestone anniversary Moist and Universal Music Canada will release a double vinyl LP and CD 25th anniversary package, which will include a re-mastered version of Silver, rare tracks and photos from the band’s early days, as well as personal reflections on Moist’s time in the studio and on tour from the band members themselves.
This deluxe re-release in Fall 2019 will coincide with Moist’s other 90s-era records, Creature and Mercedes Five and Dime, being re-mastered and made available as vinyl pressings for the first time.
