Re: WATM: why no bonus disc?!

No bonus disc is going to cost them a lot of sales. Hands up if you preordered a copy of Come Tomorrow just to get the crummy bonus disc (even though you knew you were already getting a bunch of free copies through ticket purchases)

    Exactly this. I pre-ordered specifically for the bonus disc. Now I can just wait to see if I like the album via streaming before ordering a physical copy.

    Re: WATM: why no bonus disc?!

    No bonus disc is shocking since management has always appeared to care about the #1 Billboard 200 steak. Incentivizing a pre-order would move a lot of additional units and be the best way to attempt to keep their streak alive. Even a bonus disc half-assedly thrown together with live tracks from the recent winter tour would have guaranteed a large number of pre-orders with their obsessive hardcore fanbase. They're leaving a lot of money on the table. The band's PR and marketing team is living in the 90s and doing a disservice to their client.

    I personally didn't preorder anything. I usually preorder the biggest package for DMB studio releases, but that's because they have bonus material with it. This having nothing made me not preorder.

    Very strange no bundles or anything. I think there were more merch options for the last live Trax.

    Dave decided it would be better to make you wait another 5 years for Break For It and Shotgun.

    5 years, plus 2 more for delays, plus one more for tweaking, before it gets scrapped again for new content

    I like the BWGGK and AFTW mega super ultra deluxe box sets.

    The AFTW one especially was quite good

    I don't know if I'll even pre-order anything. Maybe just vinyl if I feel frisky. I would have bought a deluxe box with a bonus CD with studio cuts absolutely. Everyone would have.

    Re: WATM: why no bonus disc?!

    I have mixed feelings. Would I love some additional unheard studio cuts? Absolutely. However, I remember with the BW onsale it was either $12 for the regular or $65 for the box set with the bonus material, no other way to get those 4 tracks. I am happy at least to save some money on this particular release (I ordered the 180g Black vinyl). I was surprised by the lack of merch surrounding this...The Blossom Live Trax release had more crap printed out than this studio album lol...so I wouldnt be surprised to see more things added to try and get us to buy more.



    I could see bundles added as we go that force you to buy more crap: Posters, LT63, Bonus disc, etc.

    Trying to think of what the most WATM heavy show was from 2022, I imagine that’ll be an LT released soon.

    I LOVE Break For It, but the version that always plays in my head is the Live 25 release. That def works for me until the B-Sides Vault release happens one day.

    So songs we know that were recorded for this record but omitted:

    Revolution
    Break For It
    Run to the Fire

    Sounds like a cool bonus to me. Did I miss anything?

    I really hope so. Break For It is one of my top DMB songs. If I could replace Break Free with it I would.

    I was at 8/30/22 which had four WATM songs (MME, OATB, Break Free and STTMB). Thought it was a great show. Wondering if there were others from 2022 though that had all of WATM, TOT, and MME though.

    Given the evidence of circumstances, I don't think the band would have released studio cuts of Joyride and Trouble With You if they could do it over again.

    Do you think there is more music coming? It doesn't make sense why they would record those and more and not release it. I feel like we're missing something.

    Re: WATM: why no bonus disc?!

    Someday they'll release all the studio cuts that were left off of various albums. And with Carter at 64 years old, it's probably not that far off (relatively speaking). That may be why they didn't have extra studio stuff on a bonus disc. But I'd still have liked live stuff at least. I don't get why they wouldn't at least do that .
