Cut Copy have announced the release of a vinyl box set chronicling their first decade as a band. The set, entitled Collected Works 2001-2011, will include early EPs 1981 and I Thought of Numbers in addition to the band’s first three studio albums: Bright Like Neon Love, In Ghost Colours, and Zonoscope. It will also come with a 72-page zine curated by frontman Dan Whitford and a holographic box set cover. The band has also announced a North American tour to commemorate the box set, which will be out on March 18. View photos of the box set as well as the full list of tour dates below. The band has also unearthed a rare 2004 documentary, Bright Like Neon, which is below too.

In a press release, Whitford states: “For me, 2001-2011 feels like a special time period for Cut Copy. It charts the move from me first signing to a record label as a naive young kid who made music in my bedroom to a fully fledged band that forged its own musical fingerprint, created some globally loved albums and toured the world.

“Within Cut Copy’s evolution, the arc of these first ten years felt like a special musical journey. For Tim, Mitchell, Ben and I, every tour was a new discovery and every record was a new development, each with its own very unique visual and musical identity. Sadly those early albums are long out of print (only available second hand at astronomical prices). So for this reason we decided it was time to create a vinyl box set covering the first ten years of Cut Copy.

“I designed the artwork for the box as well as putting together a zine booklet that goes along with it, with old photos, setlists, notes and other memorabilia from the early days. We also compiled a bonus disc containing rare early releases I Thought of Numbers and 1981.

“Hopefully the box is a special treat for our longtime fans and also new ones wanting to discover this era of our music for the first time.
