The English Beat: Box Set, U.S. Tour Dates

NEW BOX SET TITLED THE COMPLETE BEAT
IN STORES JULY 10 ALONGSIDE NEW COMPILATION

Shout! Factory has announced a reissue campaign of The English Beat catalog, beginning with a July 10 release of a new single-disc compilation titled Keep The Beat: The Very Best Of The English Beat, which is accompanied by a new introduction written by Rhoda Dakar of The Bodysnatchers, and a new box set titled The English Beat: The Complete Beat.

The 5-CD Complete Beat box set features all 3 studio albums with bonus tracks, remastered from the original tapes; 2 discs of bonus material most of which is previously unreleased on CD- three sessions recorded with the legendary John Peel for his show on BBC Radio 1, tracks from a live show recorded at Boston's Opera House, and 12" and dub versions of some of the band's biggest singles-and a booklet with rare photos and an essay by music scholar Alex Ogg. Both releases have been produced in collaboration with the band.

Fans buying the box set on Shout! Factory’s website will also receive a bonus - the first ever release of The English Beat: Live At The US Festival, in a 2-disc CD/DVD set, part of Shout! Factory's new line of US Festival releases. Click here to pre-order.
