The Residents Celebrate 40th Anniversary with the Ultimate Box Set and 2013 Tour Dates

To commemorate the 40th Anniversary of The Residents, the iconic avant-garde rock band will be selling the limited-edition Ultimate Box Set (UBS) on www.residents.com and will be making a stop in Philadelphia on Monday, February 11 at World Cafe Live. Remaining anonymous throughout their four-decade run, The Residents are as prolific today as they’ve ever been. For the first time, the genius behind The Residents’ full catalogue of 563 songs plus video and digital media, is brilliantly captured with the release of the UBS.

Packaged in a 28 cubic-foot refrigerator containing releases spanning the group’s entire career, the UBS holds well over 100 different products including 40 vinyl LPs, 50 CDs, and dozens of singles, EPs, DVDs, and CD-roms plus other releases. Thanks to the group’s diligence in archiving their releases over the years, there are no re-pressings in the UBS – each of the products is an original first pressing. Highly collectable items like Santa Dog, The Residents’ debut release, as well as Meet The Residents, Not Available, The Third Reich’n Roll, Eskimo, Freak Show and Wormwood are all included in their original form. In addition to this vast array of music products, each box set will also contain one of The Residents’ signature eyeball-with-top-hat masks.
