??? Question Marks ???
Unfortunately, we’ve got our question marks with these three releases. Begin 2018, Sony also announced to release four Within Temptation records on special and coloured vinyl. Fans got excited and web stores received hundreds of orders. Unfortunately, later, Sony canceled the production of these vinyl records and web stores needed to refund all the fans. Will we ever hold these records in our hands? Future will learn….
Update 28 Aug 2018: Even though prices and more information regarding these reissues is known, we strongly advise not to pre-order this release yet. We hint back to an earlier experience with Sony Music.
