INXS ‘Kick’ 30th Anniversary Edition Due

Share This:

This year marks a triumvirate of anniversaries for the Australian rock band INXS. It’s now 40 years since they first formed the band; 30 years since Kick became their highest-charting album; and 20 years since the untimely passing of frontman Michael Hutchence. INXS is celebrating these major milestones with a suite of CD and vinyl releases, leading off with the 30th anniversary edition of Kick on Nov. 24.

Pre-order 3-CD/1-Blu-ray

Pre-order 2-LP

Housed in DVD size packaging, the 30th anniversary edition extends previous editions with additional B-sides, rare mixes and bonus tracks over three CDs. In addition, it will feature the album mixed in Dolby Atmos by producer Giles Martin and Sam Okell at Abbey Road Studios. The new mix appears on a Blu-ray disc along with all the promo videos. (Dolby Atmos is an immersive sound technology that delivers the best listening experience on any device with a new dimension of clarity, fidelity and space.)

For vinyl enthusiasts, there will also be a half-speed remaster of the album cut over two heavyweight, 180g black vinyl LPs at 45 RPM, cut by Abbey Road Studios’ Half-Speed Mastering pioneer, Miles Showell. The vinyl release date is Dec. 15.

“Classic, fabulous pop songs that jump out of the speakers, now more than ever before!” Andrew Farriss of INXS says of Kick’s new edition. “The latest INXS vinyl cuts are an outstanding sonic achievement, especially the Kick album. I was truly amazed to hear INXS’ recordings sounding so incredibly fresh, clear and kick-ass, like vinyl on steroids…”
