As a parting farewell gift, Fire Records will release a dreamy three volume box set of vinyl entitled; “The Sun Set”. Limited to 2000 copies of each, once they’re gone, they’re gone!
The complete A-Z of Giant Sand will be released alphabetically rather than chronologically, highlighting the careening career and wandering muse of Howe Gelb and his assembled sun blasted slingers. The final volume will bring all three volumes together and include an album of bonus material and an exclusive book on the band and their history.
The first volume is released 16th April for Record Store Day 2016 on Fire Records.
