About the Contents : The unreleased material comes from tracks written between the Futureperfect and Matter and Form albums (2002-2004), and tracks that written for the soundtrack of the movie "Gene Generation” in 2007. The live tracks were recorded between 2005 and 2008 in Washington DC, Hamburg and Chemnitz on the Matter and Form tour in 2005, Wave Gothic Treffen Festival (D) 2006, Brooklyn New York on the Judgement tour in 2007 and Mera Luna Festival (D) 2008. The live edits on the DVD are a compilation of edits that were made between 2005 and 2009. Some were made by a local public access TV show in Hamburg for their show (otherwise unavailable) and some are edits that were put together especially for this DVD.
Ronan Harris about Reformation 1:
"We spent a lot of time in 2008 planning what our releases should be like from now on and this is part of the results. The original idea for Reformation was to replace the need for singles by releasing an EP or Album containing remixes, alternate versions and live versions of tracks from the album Matter and Form. We never abandoned the plan and, as ideas grew, Reformation evolved into something much bigger and better. Reformation 1 will be part of a series to release special material to our fans. We put a lot of work into this and we're very proud of the results. We hope you will be too".
VNV Nation will release their next full-length album “Of Faith, Power And Glory” in
June 2009 and will be doing a US tour in June/July and a tour of Europe in September/October 2009
