Minor Threat‘s sole full-length album, Out of Step, turned 40 this year, and to celebrate, the band have now released Out of Step Outtakes, a three-song EP with previously unreleased recordings from the legendary album’s sessions.

This was the band’s first time recording as a five-piece (Brian Baker moved from bass to second guitar and Steve Hansgen joined on bass), and they wanted to see how some of their earlier songs would sound with two guitars, so they did new versions of “In My Eyes” and “Filler.” They also recorded a song called “Addams Family,” and ended up using part of it as the coda to Out of Step‘s “Cashing In.” The two-guitar versions of “In My Eyes” and “Filler” were never mixed and went shelved for decades, until Ian MacKaye and producer Don Zientara rediscovered them in 2021 and finally mixed them. These newly mixed tracks and the full version of “Addams Family” make up this new EP.
