Fans will also receive a special 7″ with each record, with each vinyl containing previously-unheard material.

Teenage Fanclub will perform the material they recorded while on Creation Records later this year. playing three gigs in four cities.

The first night will include tracks from between 1991-1993, the second night will feature songs from between 1994-1997, while the third evening will contain material recorded between 1998-2000.
