Nitzer Ebb box sets out now!

Just in time for Nitzer Ebb to kick off their European tour (Friday as headliner in Hamburg, Saturday as support for Depeche Mode in Berlin), Mute is releasing two box sets celebrating the band’s history. Also in the works: A digital download album comprising of remixes, b-sides, rarities and more… 60 tracks in total!

Nitzer Ebb is an integral part of Depeche Mode and Mute lore. The band grew out of the early 80s industrial movement, and took not only Depeche Mode themselves, but also their fan base by storm. Ebb supported Depeche Mode as far back as 1987, and are now ready to do it again. They also have a new album coming out (already out in the US) – Industrial Complex – their first full length since 1995’s Big Hit.

So for those who are either novices in the ways of Ebb, or old fans looking to update their collections, Mute are re-issueing the band’s albums in two box sets: “Catalogue” and “Compilation”. Also coming out is “In Order”, a digital download collection of the band’s remixes, b-sides and other rare stuff. “Catalogue” and “Compilation” are out now; “In Order” will be on iTunes by January 25th.

    woohoo, the mighty ebb return, their new album Industrial Complex is absolutely awesome

    Industrial Complex is fantastic. Love the tour edition cd cover, listing of the tour dates and cities. Looking forward to getting all these releases as well.

    Just a warning to anyone who buys the In Order set from iTunes, one of the reviews states that some tracks are mislabeled and that Who We Are isn't present on the set at all. A shame, as I'd like to buy the set despite the fact I have many of the tracks already.

    This does look good, but as the previous post says there a number of mislabeled tracks and omissions that are just clumsy. Errors on Time Slips By Hearts & Minds Mix Subsonic Who we are (both versions are mixes of Lightning Man) Sloppy!
