Since their formation in 1972, Roxy Music achieved immediate and sensational success, and is regarded as one of the most influential bands ever, having left an indelible mark on the respective worlds of music, fashion, and art by merging the three into a singular and astonishing vision, offering a blueprint for generations of musicians. Intense, emotive, and clever, Roxy Music’s eight studio albums invented the art-rock movement; their groundbreaking ability to merge genres and infuse glamour into rock music was showcased in the lyrics and immortalized on the iconic covers of each album.
Roxy Music has continually been praised by successive generations of critics and musicians alike. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019; with Duran Duran remarking during their induction speech, “Roxy Music influenced the life choices of everyone who came into contact with them.”
2022 marks a year of celebration for Roxy Music. Throughout the year, each of their eight studio albums, all heralded as modern classics, will be reissued as special anniversary editions with a new half-speed cut, revised artwork and a deluxe gloss laminated finish. The first 2 LPs, “Roxy Music” and “For Your Pleasure”, will be released on 1 April 2022, with the remaining albums arriving in paired drops throughout the year.
We are also delighted to have Special Guest St .Vincent. in the US
