REM detail DVD collection

REM will release a six-DVD set charting their relationship with MTV.

Titled REMTV, the package launches on November 24 and features a new documentary about the band, live performances, interview footage and award show clips.

REM’s manager Bertis Downs says: “It occurred to us that there’s all this footage of some of the band’s absolute career highlights sitting in some MTV vaults in London and New York. Thanks to a lot of effort and digging and arranging, this is our chance to share that music with various generations of REM fans in a pretty unique release.”

He adds: “Alexander Young’s documentary is a fine way to tell the story of REM through its various twists and turns, as captured in real time by MTV’s cameras. It has some great funny bits too.”

The band split in 2011 when they parted ways with frontman Michael Stipe and earlier this year, bassist Mike Mills ruled out any chance of a reunion.

He said: “Everybody’s busy and really having a great time. It’s a nice relief in a way. As much fun as it was, it’s nice to not have to be on the hamster wheel anymore.”
