Hey, everybody. I just wanted to let those of you who may care know that the 10th anniversary double vinyl re-release of "The Soft Bulletin" is out now. It is pressed on virgin 180 gram vinyl and comes with a bonus CD that contains "The Captain", "Satellite Of You" and "1000 Ft. Hands." It's the first time those songs have ever been officially released on CD. We meant to have it out months ago, but Dave and Michael weren't pleased with the mastering and insisted it be done again.....and again.....and again. But I feel the wait was well worth it as it sounds absolutely amazing. So, please don't spend $100 on ebay because now you can go to your favorite local record store (or order it from the WB store here) and get it for a fraction of that price. It is limited to a few thousand, though, so I wouldn't wait too long if it's something you're interested in.
