Sonic Youth have announced the re-issue of their 1985 second album, Bad Moon Rising.

Following on from their decision to refurbish their out-of-print, pre-Geffen catalog, the two-disc set will be available on CD and vinyl - and will include bonus tracks 'Satan Is Boring', 'Echo Canyon' and two songs from the band's 1986's 'Flower'/'Halloween' single.

The band, who are currently on hiatus, are also set to release remastered editions of Confusion Is Sex, EVOL and Sister, after last year's reissues of 'Daydream Nation' and Ciccone Youth's 'The Whitey Album'.

Sonic Youth split in 2012 following the divorce of band members Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon.

In an interview with The Guardian last year, Moore explained: "The suspension of the band was enforced by our marriage dissolving. There are very few bands where people work together and live together. Nothing about it was pretty. At all. It’s really intense and heavy on both sides."
