Veruca Salt’s ‘Eight Arms’ getting 20-year pressing

News / Preorders / December 8, 2017

The full length record from Veruca Salt, titled Eight Arms To Hold You, is getting reissued onto vinyl for the albums’s 20th anniversary (through Outpost Records).

Second studio effort, 1996’s Eight Arms To Hold You (the working title for The Beatles’ Help!), was recorded with Metallica/Mötley Crüe producer Bob Rock and finds Veruca Salt supplanting the pure pop of their breakout debut with heavy guitars and big drums. Home to the irresistible single “Volcano Girls,” Eight Arms served as the the band’s last to feature the original line-up until the 2015 reunion album Ghost Notes.

The reissue is coming out on Jan. 26. No other pressing information is known.
