The Sisters Of Mercy have announced details of a new vinyl boxed set collecting material from their second album, Floodland.

The set will be released by Rhino on September 25 and contains four LPs, all pressed on 180-gram vinyl.

It will be released digitally on the same day, while all the songs will be available for download individually.


The Floodland collection includes the band’s album, originally released in 1987, as well as the contemporaneous singles and b-sides.
