REO Speedwagon will commemorate the 30th anniversary of their chart-topping, multiplatinum disc ‘Hi Infidelity’ with a re-release of the album as a double-CD package, due July 19, along with a run of summer tour dates.

The special 30th anniversary edition will couple the original album with a second CD of never-before-released ‘Crystal Demos’ of nine of the album’s 10 tracks. The reissue will also pack notes from original lead guitarist Gary Richrath, liner notes from lead singer Kevin Cronin and other goodies.

From Cronin’s liner notes: “The heavens, our emotions, the music business, and REO fans all over the world, were all perfectly aligned. There was a common sense of purpose, of longing and loss, within the band members’ collective psyche, that erupted with a burst of creativity, and resulted in the music of ‘Hi Infidelity.'”

‘Hi Infidelity’ was a life-changing album for REO Speedwagon, becoming the highest-selling rock LP of 1981 and going 10x platinum. The disc yielded the hits ‘Keep on Loving You’ and ‘Take It on the Run,’ among others.

Like fellow arena rock kings Yes and Styx, REO Speedwagon have a bevy of summer tour dates on the books, starting with a gig Saturday (June 4) in Los Angeles.
