Dead Can Dance releasing 2 vinyl box sets

Weatherbox in association with Vinyl 180 have unveiled the first of two Dead Can Dance vinyl box sets to be released this year. Box set number one, or DCD1, covers three albums from the 80s – including their seminal eponymous debut – along with a four-track John Peel session.

The band, lead by Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry, were fore-bearers of gothic and ethereal music and released seven albums through 4AD before disbanding in 1998. However they have reformed several times for live events.
