Contain Us is an 8-disc box set released by Canadian musician Devin Townsend on December 9, 2011. It sums all the significant material Townsend has done during 2007–2011 under the Devin Townsend Project moniker as part of the Contain Us quadrology. The idea of the box set was introduced by Townsend in 2009 when the first Devin Townsend Project album Ki was revealed.[1]

Contents[]

The box set includes all four Devin Townsend Project albums in the quadrology, with Deconstruction and Ghost slightly remastered. The bonus disc section includes two CDs and two DVDs, consisting of both released and unreleased material. All the discs are housed inside the covers of a 64-page hardcover book. The book itself contains liner notes, promotional material and photography taken during Devin Townsend Project studio and live situations, all housed in a charcoal linen hardcover slipcase.[2] The box set is limited to 5,000 copies worldwide, and 500 copies are shipped with a printed drawing signed by Townsend and a limited 10" clear vinyl including two unreleased songs.[3]
