Taproot are planning to release a new “Best Of Besides” compilation. The record, which features songs from the band’s “Besides“ collection, will be available as a CD on April 30 and as a deluxe 2xLP vinyl set on September 30.
The group commented:
“Something new at taprootmerch.com!
We promised you guys some really special merch drops, and we think this one delivers!! In appreciation to all of our fans and the years of support you’ve shown us, this one is something special just for you. For years, people have been asking how to get a copy of our limited-edition 8-disc demos and rarities collection ‘Besides‘ that we independently released (and basically sold out of) in 2017. Well, if you’re one of these people, this is for you:
“In 2017, as a gift (see what we did there) to our fans, Taproot self-released ‘BESIDES‘ – an ambitious limited edition, 8-disc box set, put together by Jarrod, featuring over 130 tracks – basically every single demo we had ever recorded, through various eras of the band. (Mostly in Steve‘s basement, or later on with Tim Patalan.)
We sold out of them pretty quickly, and since then, literally every single day people ask where they can get it. So we decided to pick our favorite tracks from each era (and add a few), remaster it, and present them in a single disc compilation, ‘The Best of Besides“. Someday soon the rest of the tracks (and more) will see the light of day in different configurations, but for now, this is what you get. 25 years of Taproot, from the very humble beginnings, through all the albums you (hopefully) know and love.
We hope you have as much fun listening to it as we did making it.”
That’s right, there is a brand new official TAPROOT release available now for pre-order at taprootmerch.com!! Available for pre-order on CD, double LP, and in various bundles! The first 100 CD orders, and first 25 vinyl orders (and all deluxe bundles) will come signed by the band!!
We aren’t announcing the tracklisting just yet (but don’t worry, you will love it), but for those of you that have BESIDES (or know whats on it) what tracks do you think will be (or should be) included??
Pre-order TAPROOT ‘The Best of Besides‘ now at taprootmerch.com!!!”
