Post-hardcore/post-rock band Envy will be making collectors that much happier on June 16 when Temporary Residence Ltd. releases a 14-LP boxset of their entire noteworthy catalog. The 14-LP set comes in anticipation of Envy's 20th anniversary as a band, and it's an astounding feat that there could possibly be enough music to fill that many records. The boxset is 95 songs and is titled Invariable Will, Recurring Ebbs and Flows, a gorgeous tribute to a band who reigns in longevity and output. But if you think all you're getting is the music on wax, you'd be wrong. From the label: “Also included is a brand new, previously unreleased 100-minute DVD, a DVD data disk packed with all 95 songs in high-quality MP3 format, and a 100-page coffee table book featuring dozens of exclusive photos, plus lyrics to every Envy song, transcribed in both Japanese and English languages.” It's an incredible offering and tribute to the band and with a limited preorder going on right now, you could get your mits on some special edition colored vinyl if you act fast.
TRL is offering a stream of “Pure Birth and Loneliness” to get you worked up for the 94 other songs you could be missing. Listen to that below and get to preordering here.
