R.E.M. may have broken up, but 2014 has become a very fruitful year for the band, which has just announced another box set. The six-disc DVD box set REMTV collects decades of television appearances, featuring footage of performances culled from concerts, award shows, their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction and general TV appearances from between 1983 and 2007. It contains both of the band's MTV Unplugged appearances from 1991 and 2001 – which was released on CD earlier this year as Unplugged: The Complete 1991 And 2001 Sessions – and the band's VH1 Storytellers show from 1998, all of which contain previously unreleased outtakes.

The band has dedicated three discs to live performances from the mid-Nineties to the late 2000s, including two free concerts that were filmed for broadcast in Cologne in 2001 and in Athens, Greece in 2008. Both shows appear in their entirety in the box set and contain more than a dozen previously unaired songs.

The box also contains a feature-length documentary about the band – R.E.M. by MTV – which traces the evolutions of both the group and the network together.

REMTV is due out November 24th, but is available for pre-order on the band's website. Pre-orders include an instant-gratification download of the group's MTV Sonic performance in Milan from 2001.

Earlier this year, the group put out two box sets comprising rarities from both its early days on I.R.S. Records in the Eighties and from the rest of its career on Warner Bros. Between the two sets, the band offered up more than 150 hard-to-find recordings.
