Numero Group to Release ‘White Zombie: It Came from N.Y.C.’ Essential Box Set on June 3, 2016

DIMMU BORGIR - Eonian

Years before Beavis and Butt-head headbanged “Thunder Kiss ’65” and “More Human than Human” into the eternal rock video canon, there was primordial White Zombie-a quintessential, diabolically loud by-product of Manhattan’s underground rock scene, born of art-school rendezvous and squalid apartment circumstance. On June 3, 2016, Numero resurrects White Zombie‘s eternally out-of-print early EPs and LPs as It Came From N.Y.C. This set is the most exhaustive attempt so far to document the band’s wondrously ugly birth. Get reintroduced to White Zombie as New York noise-rock, a grotesque creation that clawed and threatened its way to crossover metal glory.

Spread across five LPs or three compact discs, all 39 tracks have been remastered by White Zombie guitarist J. Yuenger and packaged alongside the original lurid artwork. The accompanying 108-page book painstakingly documents White Zombie‘s punishing progression through scores of unpublished photos, period discography, a T-shirtography, and tales from the terrifying early years that stitch together the sordid story of a band whose true power eclipsed its mainstream heyday. White Zombie lives. Don’t be afraid.

About Numero Group:

The Numero Group is an archival record label founded in 2003 in Chicago, Illinois, and it is a dogged, obsessive faction in an ongoing war. Our mission is dirty and labor-intensive… and it’s urgent as all hell. Time kills off precious bits of passed-over sound, story, and ephemera every day, just as fast as we can haul out of exile our sprawling treasury of under-heard recordings-along with the musicians, writers, and entrepreneurs who created them.
