Following the success of 2020s deluxe reissue ofVienna, on 16 September Chrysalis Records will release a box set of the Utravoxs second album with Midge Ure,Rage In Eden.

Originally released in October 1981, as with the bands previous two albums,Rage In Edenwas produced by Conny Plank (Kraftwerk, Can, Neu!) at his studio in Cologne during the summer of that year.

After Vienna was an international hit single and the subsequent success of the album of the same name, the pressure was on for Ultravox to deliver a dynamic, popular follow up. Seizing the opportunity this achievement afforded them, the band decided to enter the studio with nothing prepared, challenging themselves to take advantage of the studio as an instrument as much as possible.

Crafting the songs in the studio, the creative and recording process lasted three months (with only a short break to head home to the UK and headline a concert at Crystal Palace). Although Ultravox continued with the popular electronic new wave style they developed on their previous album, this time they strove to create a more complex and introspective sound.

The resultant album is a more ambitious, starker and austere than its predecessor. It features several long tracks The Voice, We Stand Alone, The Thin Wall and Stranger Within with the last three songs interconnected into one long sequence. The songs lyrics are darker, featuring obscure and surreal imagery. These depths and artistic achievements have long made it the band and fans favourite Ultravox album.

This new 5CD/1DVD Box Set features the original album, a new stereo mix of the album by Steven Wilson, along with a host of single mixes, b-sides, rehearsals and work in progress mixes and a newly mixed full concert recorded at Hammersmith Odeon, London in 1981.

The format is a 12 x 12 rigid slipcase, holding two gatefold sleeves, gold 6x Card Wallets, a 12 x 12 20 page booklet including newly written notes by Warren Cann and unseen photos, a second booklet with a reproduction of the original Rage In Eden Tour Programme.
