R.E.M. formed in 1980 when singer Michael Stipe met guitarist Peter Buck in an Athens, GA, record store where Buck worked. After recruiting bassist Mike Mills and drummer Bill Berry, R.E.M. released its first single, “Radio Free Europe,” in 1981, followed by 1982’s Chronic Town EP. Widely credited with inventing the college-rock genre, R.E.M. became the most influential American alternative rock band in history — inspiring such artists as Sonic Youth, Pavement, Nirvana, and Radiohead — for achieving multi-platinum mainstream success while maintaining their distinct identity. Over the course of its career, the band has released 15 studio albums and has sold more than 85 million albums worldwide.
R.E.M., Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage, 1982 – 2011 features three new songs that R.E.M. finished after they completed their last album, Collapse Into Now: the single “We All Go Back To Where We Belong,” which goes to radio and will be available for sale on October 18th, “A Month of Saturdays,” and “Hallelujah.” All three songs were recorded over the summer in Athens with Accelerate and Collapse Into Now producer, the estimable Jacknife Lee. The band came roaring back with those two albums in the last two years, achieving some of the best reviews of their career and enabling them to go out at the top of their game.
