The House of Love’s 1989-1993 output, plus unreleased tracks to fill 8-disc box set

Cherry Red Records this summer will release an eight-disc box set that will collect The House of Love’s output from 1989 to 1993, including expanded editions of three studio albums and the compilation A Spy In the House of Love, plus two discs of previously unreleased live material.

The collection Burn Down the World: The Fontana Years 1989-1993 is due out July 29 and can be pre-ordered directly from Cherry Red. Pre-orders come with signed postcards “while stocks last.”

The set includes expanded editions of the band’s three albums on Fontana Records: 1990’s The House of Love, featuring eight previously unreleased demos and live tracks; 1992’s Babe Rainbow, featuring five mostly unreleased references mixes and demos; and 1993’s once-final album Audience With the Mind, featuring two bonus tracks, one of which is previously unreleased.

The band’s 1990 compilation of B-sides and then-unreleased cuts, A Spy In the House of Love, sees its original 14-song running order expanded with an additional 47 tracks spread across three CDs, collecting a variety of B-sides, mixes, fan club releases, demos and live cuts, including covers like the band’s recordings of The Chills’ “Pink Frost” and Leonard Cohen’s “Who By Fire.”

The box set is rounded out by two discs worth of previously unreleased live material, a total of 30 tracks recorded at concerts in the U.K. and U.S. between 1990 and 1992.

The new collection’s release comes ahead of U.K. and U.S. tours planned later this year by bandleader Guy Chadwick’s new incarnation of The House of Love, plus an anticipated new studio album.
