Black Sabbath has announced a deluxe reissue of the band’s 1975 album, Sabotage.

The package includes remastered audio of the original record, as well as a full live recording of a show from Sabbath’s 1975 tour. It’ll be released as a four-CD and four-LP set — the latter of which also features a bonus seven-inch single — on June 11.

Sabotage is one of the more unheralded Sabbath records, having followed the impressive five-album run from 1970’s self-titled debut to 1973’s Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. Its release was also marred due to an ongoing legal battle between the band members and their former manager, which inspired the album title.

Still, Sabotage spawned beloved Sabbath songs including “Hole in the Sky” and “Symptom of the Universe.”

Sabotage is one of several Sabbath albums to get the reissue treatment this year, along with 1972’s Vol. 4 and the Ronnie James Dio-era records Heaven and Hell and Mob Rules.
