Always wanted to have “The Heart of Everything” or “The Silent Force” on vinyl LP, or missed the “The Unforgiving” release?
This is your chance!
Later this year, these three Within Temptation albums will be re-released on limited edition coloured vinyl LP! Dutch record store PlatoMania just released the information. The vinyl LPs are expected to be released April 13 this year and are available for immediate pre-order.
The vinyl releases are currently only available on this webstore, will probably be worldwide available shortly. We will edit this post as soon as more information is known. Mother Earth is rumoured to be re-issued as well. To be continued…
Update – 2 March 2018
Today, we learned – after being in touch with Dutch reseller PlatoMania/Concerto – the chance these three (or four) vinyl records will be released, is small. Sony Music Catalog GmbH is not sure yet whether to press these records or not.
The items were removed already from the big reseller in The Netherlands, but from big German resellers JPC, Amazon and Saturn as well. It looks like these items will never be produced, after all…
As soon as we have an official statement, we will update this post. Until then, let’s hope these records will be released
Update – 6 March 2018
The four vinyls of Within Temptation which were set for release this April, are officially withdrawn from the distributors lists by Sony Music Catalog GmbH. The distributors, and its resellers, are now waiting for Sony Music for a new release date. We spoke with a few resellers, and they expect these releases to be released before the end of 2018. To be continued.
According to one of the largest German resellers, Saturn, the vinyls will never be produced. Sony Music canceled the full producing process of these vinyl records.
Please make sure to not pre-order the albums on vinyl on any resellers as of today. There are a few resellers who have listed these vinyl on their site. The chances of non-delivery and/or fraud are big. Wait for official announcements before pre-ordering your releases on vinyl.
Update – 12 March 2018
Unfortunately, a sad update. Sony Music Germany has canceled these items. Refunds will be provided through the resellers. We truly hope Sony Music will reconsider releasing these vinyl records… Until then, the wait for 2019 has begun.
