The 25th anniversary edition of the Chicago noise-rock band's undisputed masterpiece recorded by Steve Albini.

Remastered edition including a 12-page booklet and a bonus LP of demos, outtakes and unreleased tracks. 'Discipline Through Sound' was the second LP by Big'n, who formed in 1990 and at the time, the band consisted of vocalist William Akins, guitarist Todd Johnson, bassist Mike Chartrand, and drummer Brian Wnukowski.

This expanded reissue was intended to come out in 2021 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of 'Discipline Through Sound', Big'n's indisputable masterpiece originally released on Gasoline Boost in 1996, but was delayed due to a PVC shortage and the fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic.

'DTS 25' is a massive album. It contains two pieces of superb-quality vinyl with a reissue and remaster of 'Discipline Through Sound' on the first disc. Side C contains unreleased demos from the album. Side D, contains three previously CD-only tracks from a split with OXES - plus two unreleased outtakes. The records are packaged in a 6mm spine gatefold cover with matte finish, accompanied by a 12-page booklet featuring photos of the band, a foreword by Steve Albini, and writings from Big'n's associates.

The entire package is housed in a sleek, tactile, Type-2 aluminium packaging newly developed and designed by the CMPTR STDNTS label. Don't miss your chance to own a brilliant, undersung artifact of '90s noise-rock in Chicago - refreshed, expanded, and more venomous than ever before.
