After recently announcing their first new album in 26 years, the Stray Cats have announced that they are releasing a deluxe vinyl boxset called Runaway Boys. The boxset is set to be released September 27 via BMG and will include four LP’s, with three of them being the bands first three classic albums Stray Cats, Gonna Ball, and Rant’N’Rave. Each album will be pressed on 180g heavyweight vinyl. The boxset will also include an LP called Rare Cuts, an eleven track album with rare B sides and deep cuts from the band’s archive. It will also include a 40-page book that contains classic interviews the band has done over the years, never before seen photos, and rare memorabilia. Along with the LP’s and book, a board game is also included.
Rumble in the Brighton The Game is the name of the board game and its premise is to race across South East England, from the Ace Café to have a rumble in Brighton. It will include unique Stray Cats playing pieces, dice and a drawstring bag. Fans can pre-order the boxset here.
The band is currently on the road supporting their latest record 40 and celebrating their 40th anniversary, with dates running until Aug.31 in San Diego, CA. See the full list of dates below.
