In partnership with label Touch and Go Records, we are re-issuing the full discography of punishing Michigan hardcore punk blues band Laughing Hyenas for the first time in over 25 years. The first two of these reissues, Merry-Go-Round and You Can't Pray A Lie, are available on black vinyl now. Both reissues will be released on February 14.

The Merry-Go-Round 2xLP reissue will include the 5 bonus tracks that were originally included on the 1995 Touch and Go CD release. The reissue of You Can't Pray A Lie will be a straight reissue of the 1989 release. Both are available here, and sample tracks via Spotify below...

Formed in the mid-80s wreckage of American punk and hardcore, Laughing Hyenas were comprised of staples of the Detroit punk scene, including John Brannon (Negative Approach) and Larissa Strickland (L Seven) along with the locked-in rhythm section of Kevin Strickland and Jim Kimball. Groundbreaking, game-changing and some of the scariest records to come out of Detroit — or anywhere — and lovingly re-mastered for vinyl and cut by Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering.
