Muse Celebrate 20th Anniversary of Showbiz With New Origins of Muse Vinyl Box Set

Muse are celebrating the 20th anniversary of their 1999 album Showbiz with a new box set documenting the band’s beginnings. Titled Origin of Muse, the box set includes a new 2xLP vinyl reissue of Showbiz, as well as the band’s 2001 LP Origin of Symmetry, both pressed onto 180-gram colored vinyl. The collection also includes nine CDs of demos, live recordings, and B-sides recorded during the band’s beginnings in Devon, England.

If that weren’t enough, entire thing arrives in a 48-page casebound book, which includes interviews with Matt Bellamy, Dominic Howard, and Chris Wolstenholm. The set also includes posters, setlists, photographs, and contact sheets from the era.

The band’s Origin of Muse box set is out December 6 via Warner Records. In 2018, Muse released their eighth studio album Simulation Theory, which included the singles “Dig Down,” “Thought Contagion,” “Something Human,” “The Dark Side,” and “Pressure.” Check out a photo of the band’s upcoming box set and find a full tracklist below.
