The Distillers have announced a 20th anniversary reissue of the band’s 2000 self-titled debut album.

The title, which includes remastered audio, will be available on vinyl and digitally on October 30.

“This record is kind of the equivalent of someone reading my teenage diary, except worse,” says frontwoman Brody Dalle. “Figuring out who I was as a songwriter, but with everyone watching and listening!”

“I love this record so much, warts and all,” she adds.

The Distillers released two more albums after their debut — 2002’s Sing Sing Death House and 2003’s Coral Fang — before calling it quits in 2006. The group reunited in 2018 and released a new single called “Man vs. Magnet” later that year. A new album is also supposedly in the works.
