Post Traumatic 3 Vinyl Reissues


Well, more vinyls. YAY? This is slowly getting out of hand, like we used to be happy to promote new releases, from time to time that is. We still are BUT there are many people saying this is really starting to look like a typical ca$hgrab.

What is the point of releasing Post Traumatic on vinyl, when we had one regular and one limited edition back in 2018? That's just 6 years ago! Dead By Sunrise - Out Of Ashes was released in 2009 in very small numbers, thus today it's impossible to get ahold of the original release. However, it has been repressed for Record Store Day this year and I have to mention this - 15 years after the original release! That's understandable. See the difference?

Is it the hype for Zoetropes (some say it's cool, some say different, who am I to argue?) and colored re-re-re-releases of the same thing (with a twist, add one or two additional songs and it's done, new release! Wooo). Let's drain fanbase pockets while we can. This is not what Linkin Park/Mike Shinoda Warner* was in the first place. Back in the day the label didn't release tons of vinyls to make a buck. CD, Special Edition/2CD, Vinyl. One of each. That was all. Of course not to mention apparel and other small merch items etc. but that's not the case here. Today? Totally the opposite and seems that with the bands approval. Sad to see, but I kinda get it.

Is the demand there? I don't think so. More like the need to live with the nostalgia, memories..call it as you like. There's no Linkin Park around to tour (yet) and they have released something new.  I'll get it just to have it, re-live what supposed te be a lifestyle: buy a new album, listen to it non-stop, day-by-day, prepare for an upcoming tour and have fun with friends from other countries on couple of gigs you've just purchased tickets for. That was a fan's cycle throughout the years and it kinda ended in 2017.

It may sound weird from someone who runs the largest Linkin Park discography on the web, but in this moment it feels bittersweet. Of course it's great to get something new released but if you look from a different perspective, dude! it's May and I have already spent more money than I did during 3 album cycles circa 2012-2017. This has to stop!

From my point of view, it would be better to spend some time on a project, work with the fanbase and release something really cool. We don't need 10 different vinyl colors...or maybe it's not about the fans and more about the money? I don't know, but I think I know where this is going 8)
* after some consideration I don't believe all of the new releases is the band talking, more likely it's the label's idea.

Anyway, go get more stuff, IT'S LIMITED!!!

2024 Update


We've changed some things here and there, starting a series of updates on the Catalog this year. First is a brand new Linkin Park page that replaced Linkin Park Singles and Linkin Park Albums. Now everything is in one place.

Also Miscellaneous singles in each album have been moved to the corresponding album itself, as a promo entries (these singles technically all are promotional). Nothing changed on the collection/wantlist/doubles side, singles should be on your lists, just in different place (in album promos).

Dead By Sunrise Out Of Ashes RSD 2024 Release!


Looks like his year will be full of new "limited" releases! Next up is Dead By Sunrise - Out Of Ashes album, repressed first time since 2009! 2 LP release for 2024 Record Store Day, pressed on black ice vinyl. Promoted on the official DBS social media:

"This vinyl will contain the much requested acoustic promotional performance we did in Las Vegas in conjunction with Club Tattoo at Linq Hotel Las Vegas! We had always intended to release these versions as we were shocked that the songs sounded so good acoustically! I remember watching the video footage of the performance with Chester - he turned to me and smiled and said “well, I guess we can book acoustic shows too!! This sounds amazing!!”.

We are super grateful to Talinda for pushing to make this happen as well as our friends @ Warner Bros records + Machine Shop! If it wasn’t for Talinda we would have never had the push we needed to get this material out. I have to tell you: it was wonderful to to have conversations about Dead By Sunrise again, and discuss material and release ideas… really felt good.
We hope you enjoy it!!!

Dead By Sunrise – Out of Ashes (Deluxe Vinyl): 2xLP (Black Ice Vinyl). Limited to 7,500 copies in USA/Canada and 2,500 copies in the rest of the world.
Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington joined forces with longtime friends and members of Orgy and Julien-K to form alternative rock outfit Dead By Sunrise. The group’s critically acclaimed debut Out of Ashes dropped in 2009 and remains a fan favorite. Exclusive to RSD, Out of Ashes Deluxe Vinyl (with Vegas Acoustic Songs) will be available for the first time ever in North America.
