      Everybody's fave political agitators from Down Under, Midnight Oil, have just announced a world tour that brings them to Vancouver's Commodore Ballroom on June 2.

      But that's not the only good news for fans who've been saving up their pennies for the band's triumphant return.

      The Oils' label for nearly 40 years, Sony, had this to say:

      In a unique press conference on Sydney Harbour today this most Australian of bands also announced the impending release of a remastered CD box set called “The Full Tank” featuring all of their existing albums and EP’s plus a mammoth new 4 CD/8 DVD trove called “The Overflow Tank” which will include over 14 hours of previously unreleased and rare material.

      Both of these box sets will be housed in replica miniature water tanks like the one featured onstage at so many ‘Oils’ gigs. The band also unveiled their first ever complete Vinyl collection which will feature 11 remastered LP’s and two 12” EP’s all cut at Abbey Rd Studios in London.

      The box sets are set for release on May 5, but are available for pre-order now at www.midnightoil.com/store.

      I'll take a copy of the vinyl set, please!
