    Extreme are back! They will dominate this winter.

    The deluxe edition reissue of Extreme's Extreme II: Pornograffitti includes a full second album of rare mixes and B-sides re-mastered from the original tapes, and is scheduled for release on January 20, 2015.

    The original album went double platinum in the U.S. with more than two million sold, cracking the Billboard 200 Top 10, featured the chart-topping single "More Than Words," the Top 5 "Hole Hearted" and the rock radio standout "Get the Funk Out," which included vocals by Pat Travers. Dweezil Zappa, whose solo album guitarist Nuno Bettencourt was about to produce, added some guitar riffs to "He-Man Woman Hater" when the band recorded some of the album at Scream Studios in Studio City.

    Extreme will support the release of the reissued Extreme II: Pornograffitti (A Funked Up Fairy Tale) on their Pornograffitti Live – 25th Anniversary Tour, with a series of concerts in the new year where they will play the entire album front to back.
