Following fully-loaded reissues of their first three albums, Metallica will put out a souped up box set edition of their 1988 commercial breakthrough, … And Justice for All, this fall. It will feature the original album, remastered by engineer Greg Fidelman, along with a selection of demos, rough mixes and live recordings when it hits stores on November 2nd.

It will be available digitally and in a variety of physical formats, including double-LP, cassette, CD, a triple-CD expanded edition, which includes the original album, demos, rough mixes and live tracks, and an expanded booklet, and a massive deluxe box set.

The latter edition, which will be a one-time pressing, includes both the CD and vinyl versions of the album along with a 10-inch vinyl picture disc single for “One,” a remixed, triple-live LP of the 1989 Seattle concert featured in the band’s Live Shit box set, four DVDs and 10 more CDs of unreleased demos, rough mixes, interviews and live tracks, much of which was culled from the band members’ personal archives. It also includes a 120-page hardcover book with photos and essays, four patches, a print featuring art by Pushead, a tour laminate, lyric sheets and a download card. A full track list is available on Metallica’s website.

To preview the box set, the band has released a remastered version of the album’s punishing closing track, “Dyers Eve,” as well as a version of the single, “Eye of the Beholder,” recorded live at London’s Hammersmith Odeon in October 1988.

The band is currently on a new North American leg of their WorldWired tour, in support of 2016’s Hardwired … to Self-Destruct, playing arenas. The trek extends to March 2019.
