The three surviving members of The Clash‘s classic lineup are set to reunite as they promote the September 9th release of three projects: “The Clash Hits Back”, “Sound System” and “The Clash 5-Studio Album Set”.

Guitarist Mick Jones, bassist Paul Simonon and drummer Topper Headon will be interviewed by Cerys Matthews in front of an intimate audience of fans at the BBC’s Maida Vale Studios in west London.

The 2-CD best-of album, “The Clash Hits Back”, replicates the running order of the group’s July 19, 1982 setlist at the Brixton Fair Deal (now the Academy) with studio versions of the songs … plus 8 additional tracks.

“Sound System” is a 12-disc box set featuring all of The Clash’s seminal studio albums remastered, 3 CD demos, non-album singles, rarities and B-sides, DVD of all videos with unseen footage by Julien Temple and Don Letts, original and newly commissioned Clash fanzines, exclusive poster, dog tags, stickers, badges and more.

“The Clash 5 Studio-Album Set” is a separate box set which collect the band’s original five studio albums (The Clash, Give ‘Em Enough Rope, London Calling, Sandinista! and Combat Rock) into one package.

Clash lead vocalist and guitarist Joe Strummer passed away in 2002 from an un-diagnosed congenital heart defect at the age of 50.
