In celebration of their 25th anniversary year, pioneering rap-rock outfit 311 have compiled the 2015 four-disc box set Archive. The group's first-ever career-spanning rarities anthology, Archive brings together 81 tracks of demos, unreleased cuts, B-side singles, and bonus tracks. Also included is a 60-page booklet of photos, handwritten lyric sheets, and memorabilia. Every track on Archive was remastered by legendary audio engineer Joe Gastwirt, who has worked with such iconic artists as Yes, Tom Petty, the Grateful Dead, Miles Davis, and others. With Archive, 311 compiled songs off every one of their albums, from 1993's Music to 2014's Stereolithic. Along with B-sides like "Let the Cards Fall," "Gap," "Bomb the Town," and "Get Down," also featured are pre-production versions of "Feels So Good," "Homebrew," "Freeze Time," "Down," and more. ~ Matt Collar
