RabbleRouser Music


Released: 11th Dec 2015


In quiet, understated celebration of their 10th anniversary, The Unthanks release a 76 minute CD of rarities, exclusive live tracks, demos and outtakes.

'Archive Treasures (2005-2015)' could be described as a fan album and really illustrates how free and uninhibited the musical philosophy of The Unthanks has been over 10 years. Organised on the record in sections, the album features never-before-heard Winterset recordings, live recordings of the 10 piece Unthanks from Newcastle’s Tyne Theatre, radio session tracks and more. Also features the new Christmas single, a special version of The Pretenders' '2000 Miles'.
