Just three months after the highly anticipated release of Empath’s debut album Active Listening: Night on Earth, the psychedelic-punk band have announced a rerelease of that LP, out October 4th. The reissue will be a dual-release with Fat Possum Records, their new label, and Get Better Records, their previous one.

The reissue is available in deluxe edition, which includes the first-ever vinyl release of their trippy 2018 EP Liberating Guilt and Fear. The EP is notable for containing creepy organ chords from The Exorcist at the end of the second track, “The Eye.” “When she came down the stairs backwards, we were like, ‘Can we turn up the sound on this?'” drummer Garret Koloski told Rolling Stone last year.

Empath are currently on tour. They’ll play two dates with Vivian Girls — Philadelphia’s First Unitarian Church on October 18th and the Once Ballroom in Somerville, Massachusetts on October 20th — before a brief stint in Europe. They’ll embark on a North American fall trek on November 16th at Detroit’s St. Andrew’s Hall on November 16th and will wrap up in Cincinnati on December 20th.
