35th Anniversary Limited Edition Transparent Blue Vinyl!
The Original '88 Album Remastered by Denis Blackham (Skye Mastering)!
Includes Bonus Tracks & Exclusive Art Card!

Celebrating its 35th anniversary, Mute / BMG announce a special edition of A Way of Life, the third studio album by influential electronic-punk duo Suicide. Although the band barely received any credit during their career, Suicide are cited as one of the most inspirational bands of the 1970s, influencing the likes of Soft Cell, Depeche Mode and The Jesus and Mary Chain, whilst garnering fans in Nick Cave, Jim Thirlwell, M.I.A., Spiritualized, Lydia Lunch, Bobby Gillespie and Savages to name a few. Originally released in 1988, more than a decade after their iconic self-titled album, A Way of Life saw Alan Vega & Martin Rev once again team up with The Cars' frontman Ric Ocasek to produce "nine creepily ingratiated industrial pop songs" (Pitchfork). This anniversary edition is available on limited edition trans blue viny and sees the album fully remastered by Denis Blackham (Skye Mastering). Featured are bonus tracks "Heat Beat" and a newly unearthed live cover of Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the USA."
