    R.E.M. x MTV.

    R.E.M. and MTV will issue a huge DVD box set this fall.

    REMTV is a six-disc set that compiles live performances, awards show highlights and television appearances, as well as a new documentary about the band and network's mutual history. The set is out November 24, just in time for holidays and for collectors. Pre-order at Amazon.

    "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-- and thanks to a lot of effort and digging and arranging, this is our chance to share that music with various generations of R.E.M. fans in a pretty unique release," stated band manager Bertis Downs. "And Alexander Young's documentary is a fine way to tell the story of R.E.M. through its various twists and turns, as captured in real time by MTV's cameras-- it has some great funny bits too!"
