Last week (Oct. 1), Motley Crue digitally released a remastered version of their classic 1983 album, Shout at the Devil, as part of their ongoing 40th anniversary series of album remasters.

It’s now available to stream alongside the previously released 40th Anniversary Remastered editions of the band’s Dr. Feelgood (1989), Girls, Girls, Girls (1987) and Theatre of Pain (1985).

The series will culminate with a remastered Too Fast for Love, Motley Crue’s 1981 debut, on the exact anniversary of its release on Nov. 10. It was earlier that year that Crue formed in Los Angeles.

In highlighting the improved sound quality of Shout at the Devil, a press release for the remaster explains that “hits such as ‘Looks That Kill,’ ‘Too Young to Fall in Love’ and title track ‘Shout at the Devil’ are amplified on this version of the band’s breakthrough album. Selling over 200,000 copies in the first two weeks, Shout at the Devil established Motley Crue as one of the top-selling rock acts of the 1980s.”

Shout at the Devil originally came out on Sept. 26, 1983, via the band’s then-label Elektra Records. In 2003, the group first reissued the effort on their own Motley Crue Records with five bonus tracks appended to the tracklist. The new 40th anniversary reissues are emerging by way of the act’s newly formed alliance with Better Noise Music.

“The fans were always right by our side,” Crue previously shared in a statement. “[We] don’t know where all of the years went — it went by in a flash. What [we] can’t forget are the four decades of fans who have counted themselves as Crueheads from day one, supporting us through thick and thin. To them, we are in debt, and thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

Next year, Crue will head out on their rescheduled Stadium Tour, co-headlining concerts across North America with Def Leppard. Get 40th anniversary Motley Crue merch at shop.motley.com.
