“We thought it could have been great to celebrate our twenty years as a band with something different.
We wanted to collect all our music in a single place, but we wanted also to do something that we never did before, so we thought about to play a different version of some songs. The ‘acoustic side’ came out from that and we’re very proud of the result we were able to play in front of our beloved fans during our latest spring tour. It was amazing to share these songs with all the people that are following us since the beginning. This is a present for all of them and also for us, for what we’ve been during these long twenty years.”
To be released in September 2019 on both CD and LP, the “XX“ box set will feature nine UFOMAMMUT albums, all individually housed in sleeves with exclusive cover artworks, created specifically for this release.
The box sets will include all eight studio albums; Godlike Snake, Snailking, Lucifer Song, Idolum, Eve, Oro, Ecate, and 8.
Additionally, the box will include a new release, titled XX.
This new recording features six revisited tracks – “Satan,” “Plouton,” “Lacrimosa,” “Infearnatural,” “Mars,” and “Destroyer – which were re-recorded during the band’s recent spring European tour.
These special box sets will also include a 64-page book with original covers, photos, and lyrics to all songs with an additional poster, backpatch, and sticker.
XX sees UFOMAMMUT’s Poia performing acoustic guitar and effects, Urlo handling vocals, synth, and effects, and Vita on drums and percussion, with Ciccio and Stefano Tocci handling sound production and recording. The sound was mixed by Stefano Tocci at Ampire Studio and mastered by Luca Piazza at Zen Garden Studio.
The XX box set will see release on September 9th through UFOMAMMUT’s own Supernatural Cat Records.
Preorders are posted at the band’s new webshop along with other exclusive merchandise HERE.
UFOMAMMUT has also just announced further European touring for later in the year, surrounded by one-off festival performances this summer, two gigs in Russia this September, with more tour dates to be announced over the months ahead, as the band celebrates their 20th Anniversary with their fans around the planet.
