The Tragically Hip have announced plans to release a commemorative box set of their debut album, Up To Here, the latest installment of special deluxe packages, on November 8 via UMe.

Up to Here was released in September 1989. It is one of the band’s most successful albums, achieving Diamond status in Canada for sales of over a million copies, earning the band a Juno Award for Most Promising Artist, and also introducing fan-favorite songs such as “Blow at High Dough,” “New Orleans Is Sinking,” and “Boots or Hearts.”

The expanded reissue of Up To Here will be available as a four-LP set on 180-gram vinyl alongside a book documenting the history of the debut album era. The reissue includes a 2024 remastering of the original album and four previously unreleased songs that didn’t make it on the original Up To Here album – “She’s Got What It Takes,” “Get Back Again,” “Rain, Hearts And Fire” and “Wait So Long.”

A recording of Live at Misty Moon, the special filmed for MuchMusic in 1990 from the Misty Moon Cabaret in Halifax, with an accompanying 1-hour concert film, is also included on Blu-ray. The package also contains demos from 1988 recorded before the Up To Here recording session. The package will also be available in a three-disc CD format.
