Pere Ubu box set Architecture Of Language 1979-1982 to be released via Fire Records

There’s a new Pere Ubu box set on the block: Architecture of Language 1979-1982, out March 18 via Fire Records. Go ahead, sample at your leisure below. The 4LP set features new masters of New Picnic Time (1979), The Art Of Walking (1980), and Song Of The Bailing Man (1982), plus the requisite disc of extras, called Architectural Salvage.

To promote this thing, the band is embarking on what they’re calling The Coed Jail Tour, which promises a setlist of 1975-1982-era material ONLY. Guitarist Tom Herman (1975 -1979, 1997- 2002) will join David Thomas, Tom Herman, Robert Wheeler, Michele Temple, and Steve Mehlman for the tour.

So far, there’s only a London date (at Tufnell Park Dome on March 24), but there are more to come. If you like pre-ordering things, you could do so here.
