WMG ROLLS OUT INITIAL
DUALDISC OFFERINGS
Discs by Simple Plan, The Donnas, Grateful Dead, Trapt are First in New Format
Warner Music Group is first out of the gate with releases in the new DualDisc format, which features CDs and DVDs on the same disc.

The first batch, hitting stores tomorrow, includes Simple Plan’s new Still Not Getting Any… and The DonnasGold Medal.  The Grateful Dead’s American Beauty and Trapt’s self-titled album will be made available on DualDisc Nov. 23. 

Said WEA Corp. President John Esposito: “DualDisc offers music consumers a wider array of options to enhance their experience with our artists.  Limited only by the artist's imagination, DualDisc’s unique audio and video features give our artists a broader palette for creative expression.  We are excited that two of our most anticipated new albums this fall will be released on DualDisc. It's the most remarkable format since the eight-track.” 

DualDisc is a new music product unveiled by major and independent record companies in August.  DualDiscs do not require new equipment and are compatible with nearly any device that can currently play a CD or a DVD—including a home stereo system, portable disc player, car stereo, game console or PC. 

In addition to a full album on the CD side, the DVD side of WMG’s DualDiscs provides the full album in enhanced sound (such as Surround Sound and/or DVD-Audio or LPCM stereo), and also includes a wide range of special features such as music videos, interviews, photo galleries, concert footage and lyrics. 

Simple Plan’s Still Not Getting Any… DualDisc (Lava Records) will include the entire album on the CD side while the DVD side provides 20 minutes of exclusive, behind the scenes “making of the album” footage, photo galleries of the band, lyrics, bonus material as well as the entire album available in enhanced sound (5.1 Surround Sound and/or DVD-Audio or LPCM stereo.). 

In addition to the full album on the CD side of Atlantic Records’ The Donnas’ Gold Medal DualDisc, the DVD side features each track available in 5.1 surround sound and high-resolution stereo.  It also features The Donnas’ “Fall Behind Me” music video in surround sound, a 15-minute “making of the video” piece and a lyrics section for the album. 

Included on the DVD side of Trapt’s DualDisc (Warner Bros.) are seven music videos from their debut album Trapt for the following songs: “Headstrong,” “Still Frame,” “Echo,” “Made of Glass” (live performance version), “Stories” (live performance version), “Headstrong” (live performance version), “Echo” (live performance version). 

The Grateful Dead’s DualDisc (Rhino Records) contains two recent, exclusive video interviews on the DVD side.  The first never-before-seen interview is with Bob Weir, who discusses his inspiration for writing the song “Sugar Magnolia.”  The second is with Mickey Hart who offers fans a look into how the album was mixed into surround sound.  The DualDisc also includes song lyrics and a picture gallery of the band.
