Dude Ranch is in my top two blink records. I’m excited to give that cover album a listen.
That was my first concert ever! I love that it’s online.
I did get a few videos though!
Haha I know and they were good too.
I always wondered why bands don’t hook up a simple recorder to the soundboard then put up the bootleg recording on their website for like $5. Seems like it would be an easy way to make some money unless their would be rights fees they would have to pay to the label/venue etc that wouldn’t make it worth it.
Seriously, Linkin Park did it for YEARS. I think they charged between $5-10 for them. Best momento of a concert you could get IMO. There was quite a long stretch in their career where they recorded damn near every show they played. It was cool for me because I got soundboard recordings of shows I missed and even one of the most special concerts I've ever been to: the only time they played in Okinawa, Japan. Incredible show. Sorry for the tangent.
Back on topic, I wish more bands would do soundboard recordings. I like them because they're better than YouTube/iPhone recordings, but they're not perfect. The imperfections are what make them sound cool.
Chris Carrabba did it with the Swiss Army 10 year solo tour. Those are some great "bootlegs."

How to do it properly. Each show is mixed too. Yeah, it’s not cheap but it’s a great catalog of the bands live shows.
Fugazi also did it.

Pearl Jam has hundreds of shows recorded and a ton of them are on streaming services.
Yes! I loved those! My first time seeing DC was recorded and put on there.
I'm sure blink knows and accepts that, vocally at least, they don't sound good. That's one big barrier to putting out live recordings that aren't retouched.
This and the fact that it’d be pointless to have 50+ of the same .MP3 file with different city names.
Here's the audio from the show at The Forum from a couple days ago. Unfortunately, you can't download it for free right now (because some people used up all 200 free downloads for the month...) so go ahead and just stream it for now and I will make it free to download as soon as the free downloads reset!
All respect to Brad, but that’s pretty unlistenable haha
It's not great... Far from the worst sounding bootlegs though haha.
I don’t have much experience with bootlegs, but I commend you for your service to the community haha
Would think with the album being a about a month out that they will be stepping up the promo soon?
Well what do you consider NINE-space to be?!
looked at it once and havent gone back
"Step up promo" like these assholes don't text me more than most of my friends.
Remember how bad they were at promoting Cali?*
according to this forum only
People who signed up for that already know an album is coming out i feel
With BIOMY dropping off the charts I'm sure the band is going to release a new single soon.
Promo in 2019 really is about turning out the people that like you to stream your shit the first week or bundle the album into some tour dates or other products to boost chart positions.
