How many folks pre-ordered WATM?

Curious if the lack of bonus material or certain songs keep people from pre-ordering WATM.

    I preordered one of every vinyl version, but mainly because I’m a completist.

    I didn't see the need to. I don't care about vinyl, and I don't think they're gonna run out of digital downloads. For all I know, it'll leak a month before, and then I paid for nothing.

    Being a completist is a sickness! haha... but I understand.

    How many vinyl versions did there end up being?

    Re: How many folks pre-ordered WATM?

    The lack of any kind of bonus discs was a big factor. I don't own a vinyl player, even though I own a couple of albums in case I ever do get one...

    I will rarely order a Live Trax if it doesn't have a bonus disc. If it does, it's an instant purchase. (Yes completionism mentality is a sickness!)

    I'm pretty sure I have all the main bonus discs... Just missing stuff like the singles from Crash and BTCS where there are a couple bonus songs. Missing those and the Europe AFTW "purple" bonus disc which I've been told is fantastic. Just haven't gotten around to buying one off Ebay.

    I'll purchase the album from iTunes when it comes out, and if I like it, maybe the vinyl with the art book will still be available. I will defiantly be ordering the BTCS vinyl if that ever gets put into production again.

    Hoping Walk Around the Moon is great and this summer tour goes well too.
    Cheers!

    Why would I preorder? Dave didn't even promote the album at the Mexico resort trip. I really wanted more advertising there.

    You didn't do the Deluxe version? Or are you missing the standard black version?

    Would only pre order if there was an incentive. Seeing as there are none whatsoever, I did not and will not.

    The exact reason I won't preorder. I'll just wait and buy a copy from my local record store. If they add bonus tracks, then I'll preorder. I think this is the first time there's no bonus tracks or disc for an album release. Such a drag.

    I think this is the play. It's 2023. Most people are going to check it out via streaming.

    That’s what I’ll be doing.

    It’s a shame they didn’t do anything to get me to want to actually purchase their new album. Didn’t purchase Come Tomorrow either, so that’ll be 0 purchased studio albums for me in over a decade.

    Hadn’t actually thought about that until right now…

    I should have added a Not going to buy it at all option. I'm actually in that camp. Although I guess if it ends up being a Big 4 album I'll get it on vinyl. Otherwise, just stream it.

    Its my favorite band. Its their new album. I am a purveyor of physical media and enjoy collecting their studio stuff (and some of their live ones) on vinyl. Easily went in for 1 deluxe vinyl. Not really that difficult or that deep a decision for me. Didn't need incentive either (tho, yes, would have been cool), I was buying it anyway.

    I do applaud the bravery from some of you.

    Fair enough. Most people are listening to the album via streaming. There's people who want physical media, and there's plenty of options for that.


    The band isn't forcing anyone's hand into a physical copy they don't want with exclusive content. This is a win-win for fans.


    Clearly bonuses don't work with Come Tomorrow, so no need for them here.

    No bonus material means no purchase for me. If my son likes it I'll buy a physical cd for him for his room and my car

    I got the White, Lavender, and 180-gram black. Might get some of the others down the line, but for now I’m set.

    As opposed to

    At a $5 difference, for me I figured might as well bump up. Deluxe doesn't always mean "extra songs". Its a special packaging, extra bells and whistles things. If those kind of extras matter to you - cool, if not...then you do your thing.

    It’s 180grams bro!

    Do we even know the weight of the colored variants? Doesn’t look like it’s in the description.

    What were the “bonuses” with Come Tomorrow?

    Big Whiskey and Away From the World were definitely the bees knees in terms of releasing special editions of their albums. A damn shame that ship seems to have sailed, but it is what it is. Come Tomorrow certainly had a live bonus disc that's nice, but the actual album's presentation and packaging felt like an afterthought. I feel like that's at least not the case here.

    Got it. Yea if I were buying one, it’d be the Deluxe in this case. Kind of sounds like a no brainer.

    And yes, I realize “Deluxe” doesn’t have to mean extra music.

    Ahhh yes that was actually a great compilation of live stuff. I’m not generally impressed by their live compilations, but this one is good.

    I think with studio records, studio bonus stuff should be included as a bonus if there is going to be a bonus. Just my opinion.
