"We've been picking through the archive recently, looking back at our three records, many many b-sides and some material that has never seen the light of day," frontman Tom Smith writes on the Birmingham, England, band's website.
"It's been addictive. We can't leave it alone, much like picking a scab, and we've decided to package it all together and share it with our fans, officially. We've raided the vaults, searched through old CD-Rs, cassettes and photo albums and gathered it all together. We'd like you to have this music on any and every format we can produce and also share some photos and memories of the last 6 years in a volume that you can keep forever."
'Unedited' includes a 100-page photo art book featuring lyrics and photographs of the band and their concerts. As well, it features seven CDs, seven heavyweight vinyl LPs and seven high quality 320kbps album downloads with individual wallets for the CDs and LPs.
The box set contains all three studio albums: 'The Back Room,' 'An End Has a Start' and 'In This Light and on This Evening' in the three formats, and a B-sides collection called 'You Are Fading,' which contains 35 tracks over four discs ('You Are Fading I,' 'II,' 'III,' 'IV'). The collection features original demo recordings, live cuts and alternate versions, and will be available as a separate digital download beginning Feb. 28.
Editors released their last album 'In This Light and on This Evening' in 2009. According to their site, the band plans to "record in stages over 2011" for their fourth studio album.
