Shaun Ryder and co's early work is set to be released in a collection next month, as they embark on their UK tour dates.

London Records are set to release Happy Mondays' The Early EPs, featuring their first four mini albums on 25 October.

The collection - which includes the Forty Five EP, the Freaky Dancin/The Egg EP, the Tart Tart EP and the 24 Hour Party People EP - will be made available digitally and as a 4 x12 inch coloured vinyl box set.

The Early EPs have been remastered from the original two-inch tapes held in the Factory/London records archive.
