Rockers Alice in Chains have announced that they will release a massive Dirt box set via Columbia Records and Legacy Recordings on September 23 to mark the legendary album’s 30th anniversary.
Dirt, the band’s second full-length studio album, came out on September 29, 1992. The album was certified five times platinum in the U.S. earlier this week.
The album was the last Alice In Chains project to be recorded with the Seattle group’s core four founding members of guitarist and vocalist Jerry Cantrell, drummer Sean Kinney, bassist Mike Starr and frontman and lead vocalist Layne Staley.
The upcoming box set will contain a variety of vinyl and collectibles, including a sculpture of model Mariah O’Brien, replica show posters and a setlist, art prints and a hardcover book full of photos.
The Dirt LP in the set will be on orange vinyl to match the album cover aesthetic, and it also contains a CD and five 7″ singles in a variety of colors. The five singles are “Them Bones,” “Down in a Hole,” “Rooster,” “Angry Chair” and “Would?”
The set, a limited edition with 3,000 copies, is priced at $275 and is expected to ship in late October.
