Chorus 5CD Boxset Out On December 4th

Ciao! Best of Lush First Time LP Pressing Out November 27th

London Roundhouse Headline Shows Next May

Following on from the news that Lush are to reform next year, we’re proud to formally announce the full details of the band’s extensive anthology,Chorus, and the first time vinyl pressing of Ciao! Best of Lush.
Over the course of a decade, Lush released three studio albums – Spooky (1992), Split(1994) and Lovelife (1996) – to growing critical and commercial success. Starting out with the mini-album Scar (1989) and releasing a string of singles and EPs throughout their career, these were used to create the compilations Gala (1990) and Topolino (1996); two albums that would ultimately bookend their story with the tragic death of drummer Chris Acland in late-1996 leaving them too grief-stricken to continue.
Twenty years on and Lush are a band long overdue celebration. Compiled by the band,Chorus will be spread over five CDs and housed in a beautiful hardbound book, designed by long-time associate and former v23 collaborator Chris Bigg. 105 tracks in total, Chorus contains their three studio albums and both singles compilations plus a wealth of previously unreleased demos, radio sessions, remixes and rarities. The full tracklisting can be found below.
Out on December 4th, Chorus is available to pre-order now, you can get your copy
In addition, Ciao! Best of Lush is also being pressed on vinyl for the very first time, for release on November 27th as part of Record Store Day’s Black Friday event. This first run will be limited, on double red vinyl, and will be available from your local record store. The tracklisting for this can also be found below.
