Metallica has an ongoing campaign to refresh their potent catalog with new remasters and expanded reissues. Their previous such work was Master of Puppets (1986), released back in November of 2017.

On April 13, Metallica will add The $5.98 EP: Garage Days Revisited to the expanding list. It will be called The $5.98 EP: Garage Days Re-Revisited. The reissue will provide the original track-list with no adds, just a remaster of a long out of print classic in surprising ways.

This EP will be reissued on CD, as well as a CD edition in a lenticular longbox (remember those?), three vinyl editions (180g-weight standard black, a limited edition red-orange 180g-weight vinyl, and an exclusive picture disc LP, with the latter two offered only via, a cassette version with the EP content on both sides, just like the original issue, and DD.
