INXS Releasing 30th Anniversary Edition Of ‘Kick

Coning on November 24th is INXSKick – 30th Deluxe Edition — which will be released as a triple CD, Blu-ray collection. INXS, who was a mainstay on MTV throughout the ’80s, broke massively in the U.S. with Kick, which was released on October 19th, 1987. The album, which sold over 10 million copies, featured such Top 10 hits as “Devil Inside,” “New Sensation,” “Never Tear Us Apart” and the chart-topping “Need You Tonight.”

The 30th anniversary edition of Kick extends previous editions with additional B-sides, rare mixes, and bonus tracks. In addition, it features the album newly mixed in Dolby Atmos by the Beatles‘ archival producers 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.” There will also be a Half-Speed Remaster of Kick cut by the Abbey Road team over two heavyweight, 180-gram black vinyl LP’s at 45-RPM for supreme fidelity.

  • INXS keyboardist Andrew Farriss said of the new reissue: “Classic, fabulous pop songs that jump out of the speakers, now more than ever before! 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.”
  • A while back, guitarist Tim Farriss told us that the bonds between the members of INXS were set from the beginning: “It was kind of a commitment — everyone left their girlfriends, and their jobs, and whatever, and we all headed off to Perth for a year to write a lot of songs and live as musicians. And I think that we formed a lot of common bonds back then that are still relevant today.”
