Josie and the Pussycats soundtrack gets vinyl reissue

Josie and the Pussycats, the comic-based musical comedy that follows an all-girl band and their run-ins with the music industry, is getting a soundtrack vinyl reissue. It is set to be out September 26th via Mondo and the score is almost entirely filled with tracks by the fictional band. The frontwoman of rock band Letters to Cleo, Kay Hanley, provided the vocals for every Josie and the Pussycats song.

Mondo, Alamo Drafthouse, and Birth.Movies.Death. will also co-host a reissue celebration at Los Angeles’ Ace Hotel which will include a film screening, appearances by co-directors Harry Elfont and Deborah Kaplan, and a Josie and the Pussycats set by Hanley. There will be merchandise also sold at the event: leopard-print vinyl records, a 7” record featuring DuJour songs (the film’s featured boy band), and a 12-page booklet featuring behind-the-scenes photos.
