There may not be any new Pixies songs on the horizon, but the beloved Boston band have announced that they will release Minotaur, a boxed set covering the alternative rockers’ run of studio albums. The 5-album package begins with 1987’s Come on Pilgrim EP and concludes with 1991’s Trompe Le Monde LP.

The $175 Deluxe Edition of Minotaur will contain goodies like a book and concert DVD, and the $450 Limited Edition will include 180 gram vinyl copies of each album, according to Billboard.com. Both versions of Minotaur go on sale June 15.

A+R is distributing the set, and you can pre-order your copy at ainr.com.

The band will tour Europe this summer. According to guitarist Joey Santiago, the future for the band is up in the air after that. “It will be an organic process, I guess,” Santiago told the NME. “After these shows, should we continue on? Should we let it rest? We really don’t know.”
