Published Oct 29, 2008If youve been waiting to get a hold of M83s catalogue on wax, the brass over at Mute has good news: the label is set to release the bands five full-lengths on vinyl this fall.
On November 25, Mute will repress or in some cases press for the first time the groups entire back catalogue: their self-titled debut (2001), Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts (2003), Before the Dawn Heals Us (2005) and this years exceptional John Hughes homage, Saturdays=Youth. Also, the label will be giving 2007s Digital Shades some much-deserved vinyl treatment, which in North America has thus far remained a download-only affair.
Sweeting the deal, each vinyl release will come with a bonus CD version of the respective album and, with the exception of Digital Shades, be on double vinyl.
As previously reported, M83s Anthony Gonzalez and co. are gearing up to do another live sweep of North America with School of Seven Bells, who will be supporting their recently released, and reviewed, debut Alpinisms.
