Luna split up in 2005 but reunited for some shows last year and are now releasing a six-LP box set that collects all their albums from the 1990s. They also have some more tour dates in the future.

Entitled Long Players: ‘92 - ‘99, the box set includes Lunapark (1992), Bewitched (1994), Penthouse (1995), Pup Tent (1997), and The Days of Our Nights (1999). The band’s two other studio albums (2002’s Romantica and 2004’s Rendezvous) are not included. But there’s also a sixth LP entitled Rarities that includes demos and B-sides and a 12x12 book featuring photos and an interview with frontman Dean Wareham conducted by film director Noah Baumbach (who Wareham has worked with before on The Squid and the Whale and Frances Ha). It’ll be released via Captured Tracks in late fall or early winter.

Below is the tracklisting for the rarities LP, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.
