klaxons album sales hurting, release deluxe edition to bait fans to re-buy latest album

no more than four months after the release of their latest album “surfing the void”, klaxons (or their record label polydor) have reached deep into their bag of tricks and announced plans for an updated “deluxe” release that contains four new songs.

clearly a sign of weak album sales, this ploy has been a common practice since the emergence of internet-fueled music distribution (free or otherwise) aimed at giving the album additional marketing muscle and press coverage (yeah i fell for it) and capturing larger numbers at the expense of fans who have already purchased the album.

what id like to see is for them to release deluxe book of album covers cuz astro kitty is pretty much the best thing about “surfing the void”.

now pardon me while i go use the litter box…
