In late 1996 Chisel decamped from their native D.C. to Brooklyn’s Rare Book Room. The power trio of Ted Leo, Chris Norborg, and John Dugan teamed with engineer Nicolas Vernhes and came away with Set You Free, a remarkable, but largely overlooked, classic of the era. Originally issued on the venerable Gern Blandsten imprint, the album presaged the turn of the century ’60s rock revival, providing a counterpoint to second-wave emo. This deluxe 25th anniversary remastered edition supplements the original’s 17-song track list with five period alternates and rarities, plus a booklet of lyrics, photos, and an essay by Jes Skolnik. Get ready for the invasion.
PLEASE NOTE: The Set You Free Random Vinyl variant will not necessarily look like the photo shown. This variant is truly random, 100% recycled vinyl from the pressing plant. Each copy of this variant will be entirely unique and a completely random color.
Pre-Order: Expected to ship late February. All orders containing this item will be held and shipped together.
