The official page has been updated with some great news!
First, to begin, “Bury the Hatchet: The Complete Sessions” will be released in the United States in March!! The 2-CD set was released in Europe last April, and therefore only available as an import. Disc 1 includes the full album of “Bury the Hatchet” and the UK bonus track “Sorry Son”. The second disc includes five more B-sides and several live tracks, most recorded in Paris, December 9th, 1999 (the “Beneath the Skin” show). The US release will have an MSRP of $19.99. Please, please include something new! (New packaging, different tracks… something!)
Fascinating! A news story from Zombieguide made it to the official page! To clarify, the “greatest hits” CD was intended only as a promotional pack-in to the Turkish magazine “Blue Jeans”, and is not a separate release. According to online rare music retailers, the compilation is licensed by Universal, however it was probably something handled by the record company entirely and the band was never notified.
Odds are, we WILL indeed hear “Analyze” before autumn! As previously reported, the track didn’t make it to the soundtrack. This is due to Universal’s decision to delay the track. Because the new album is now slated for October 2000, the company wants the track to be on a movie closer to it’s release. (”Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within”, anyone? Nah, it’d be out of place.)
