MUSE announces 20th anniversary box set Origin of Muse

on September 07, 2019, 11:16am

MUSE have announced a new box set commemorating 20 years of their debut album Showbiz. Due out December 6th, Origin of Muse chronicles the band’s salad days by collecting their earliest demos, first EPs, and their first two studio albums.

The whole shebang comes housed in a 48-page casebound book that contains interviews with Matt Bellamy, Dominic Howard and Chris Wolstenholme. Fans can also pore over original posters, setlists, photographs, and contact sheets.

Spread over nine CDs and four colored vinyl, the set contains remasters of both 1999’s Showbiz and 2001’s Origin of Symmetry, in addition to B-sides, unreleased demos, and complete live performances of both albums.

Sneak a peek of the collection below with an image and a tracklist, and grab tickets to MUSE’s upcoming tour dates.
