Failure are releasing a vinyl box set titled Failure 1992 - 1996, which collects their first three albums -- 1992's Comfort, 1994's Magnified and 1996's Fantastic Planet -- plus a fourth LP of b-sides and outtakes. The records have been remixed and remastered by the band's Ken Andrews. “Almost everything people have heard from these albums has been sourced from 16bit digital files made in the ‘90s, which was state of the art at the time,” explains Andrews. “But when we found out we were getting our hands on the original analog master tapes, and with all the confusion and lack of quality control on several of the previous iterations, we set out to create the definitive versions of Comfort, Magnified and Fantastic Planet. Everything has been sourced directly from first generation multitrack and stereo master tapes. This is us finally getting to present our early work the way we’ve always wanted to.” The box set is out April 7 and you can check out the box set tracklist, and stream the original albums, below.

To celebrate the box set's release, Failure will be playing Comfort, Magnified and Fantastic Planet in full at three-night residencies in Chicago (July 9-11 @ Thalia Hall), Los Angeles (July 16-18 @ Echoplex) and NYC (July 23-25 @ Bowery Ballroom). These shows will be the first time the band have ever played Comfort and Magnified front-to-back in concert. Tickets for those go on sale Friday, December 20 at 10 AM local time, with VIP packages available via Failure's website. There's also a Citi cardmember presale for the Bowery shows starting Tuesday (12/17) at 10 AM.
