New year, new reason to spend money you should be paying your heating bill with.
Alkaline Trio has announced they are dropped the mother of all boxsets in 2018 to celebrate their band turning old enough to buy a 6-pack of Black Label legally in the state of Ohio.
Past Live is the bands full catalog but live versions that were recorded in Chicago over the past couple years in audio and video versions.
The bundles include:
Past Live Box Set 8xLP (Colored Vinyl):
- All 8 LPs collected together in a box that is exclusive to the Past Live Deluxe Bundles. All LPs pressed on limited edition colored vinyl.
A 4 disc Blu-ray set features the band performing all 8 albums live in superior 5.1 audio for your listening and viewing pleasure:
- Disc 1 – My Shame Is True – Goddamnit
- Disc 2 – This Addiction – Maybe I’ll Catch Fire
- Disc 3 – Agony & Irony – From Here To Infirmary
- Disc 4 – Crimson – Good Mourning
The albums will be sold separately as will the blu-ray set. The boxset however is only available though a bundle. I have this feeling this will sell out fast.
Here is what the band had to say about this awesome collection:
We are proud to unveil a project we’ve been working on for a while now: Past Live. We recorded all eight studio albums live at our show at the Metro in Chicago, and now we bring it to you ONLY for limited time preorder (order by Feb 9). Each album will be a different colored neon vinyl to match the album cover. Additionally, we have a four-disc Blu-Ray (2 albums on each disc) that was recorded in HD and mixed in 5.1 surround sound. For our Super Deluxe bundle we’ve taken our old backdrops from over the years and crafted them in to large tote bags with a zip top and side pocket. Plus you will receive a custom sleeve for all eight vinyl, a band signed 12″x12″ screened and numbered art poster and a Past Live T-shirt.
These limited quantity super deluxe bundles will sell for $315. We will also offer the Deluxe (everything but the backdrop bag), for $275. Individual albums on vinyl and the Blu-ray are available to purchase ala carte.
Preorder yours now. You have until February 9th to do so. You can skip rent for a month, your landlord would understand.
