Pink Floyd will release the group's much-anticipated two DVD set, PULSE, on Columbia Records on Tuesday, July 11. This landmark release features the first ever film of Pink Floyd playing the band's seminal album, The Dark Side of the Moon, live in concert. The PULSE DVD set documents the 1994 Division Bell tour and was filmed at London's Earls Court during a record-breaking 14-night residency. The two-disc release contains the full concert performance with rare backstage footage and previously unseen extras making the collection a must-have for Pink Floyd fans.

Disc 2 of the PULSE DVD set features a live filmed performance of Pink Floyd -- David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Rick Wright -- performing the group's towering masterpiece, The Dark Side of the Moon, in its glorious entirety during the second half of the Division Bell concert. Included on disc 1 are "Shine on You Crazy Diamond," "Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2)," "High Hopes" and "Learning to Fly" as well as never-before-seen rarities such as Bootlegging the Bootleggers and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of life on the road with one of the world's biggest and most influential rock bands.

Long time Pink Floyd collaborator Storm Thorgerson has designed the graphics for the PULSE DVD, ensuring that the set looks as good as it sounds. Mixed in mind-expanding 5.1 surround sound and digitally re-mastered by James Guthrie, the PULSE DVD includes some of original screen films used for the 1970s concert performances of The Dark Side of the Moon (which were never filmed) as well as the visual components for the piece which were remade for the 1994 tour.

The PULSE DVD captures vividly the essence of Pink Floyd, both as a live band and as a visual tour de force, qualities that served them, and their fans, well during the group's show-stopping reunion performance at last year's Live 8.
