The eight-disc collection, which will come in both vinyl and CD formats, documents all four of the legendary band’s sold-out reunion shows, which took place at London’s O2 Academy Brixton in June 2004.

It was originally slated for release on January 28 next year, but it has now been been delayed until February 25.

‘Live In Brixton’ will mark the first time the recordings from the gigs have been made available officially. They were mastered by Phil Kinrade at Alchemy Mastering at AIR.

The vinyl box set comes in two forms – a limited edition version that is exclusive to select independent retailers and has each show pressed onto splattered and clear vinyl discs, and a standard coloured vinyl version. In the latter, each show is given its own colour – June 2 on red vinyl, June 3 on orange, June 5 on green and June 6 on blue.

All formats will be released with a poster of the box set’s artwork and a 24-page booklet that includes photos and new artwork, plus memories and paraphernalia from fans who were at the gigs. You can pre-order the ‘Live In Brixton’ box set here.
