Trail Of Dead Album delayed

Post by Coopstar »

Well I guess I now have my answer. If you guys haven't seen it, here is a story on Pitchfork about it:

Although I wish the band all the success in the world, I hope that Interscope really doesn't think that their "market" will be diluted if they release it in the fall. Geez. My day just got worse.

Now let's say that said album was scheduled to be released at roughly the same time as albums by U2, No Doubt and Eminem.

You might argue that people who are planning on buying those albums aren't necessarily the same people who might be in the market for a Trail of Dead record. But here's the thing: Interscope appears to be goddamn hoping they will be.
Brilliant strategy, Interscope. God damn it.

Oh yeah - if you go to the TOD fansite they reference in the article, there is a message from Conrad.

This gives me time to save up to buy the last record. I really should get into the habit of buying cds at shows.
