Elwood is right, they'd better do it right and use the original uncompressed analog masters, or else this will be worthless. Since I don't have a vinyl turntbable, I'd love to be able to buy an uncompresed HD version of each album. A lot of bands are offering 24/96 versions of their albums at HDTracks or Qobuz, but most of the time, it's brickwalled and therefore useless.
If this wouldn't even be a thing until next year I wonder why they are talking about it now? Well I guess it might take that long to plan out. It would be cool to have if done well.
One thinks that they're simply trying to gauge interest. This might not happen at all. As for being "done well", remember the new label has yet to show that they know how to handle this band. Not to say they won't get the idea (asking if we want vinyl is a good start), but I get the feeling that nobody really takes Creed or us fans all that seriously. Hell, Wind-Up didn't even take it seriously when Creed was the biggest rock band in the world in the early 2000s. These days Creed is more of a punchline, so why would they care now? Don't get me wrong, I HOPE they care enough to do us right, but I'll believe it when I see it.
I agree with you. All you have to do is see what this new label has tweeted of late to understand. Also though it's great they are using the Creed account to follow any and every ab fan page around, what about all the Creed related ones?.. that seems kind of stupid. They did the same thing with Creeds facebook. I almost thought Stapp did it to make up for all the blocking because it was such overkill with how many ab ones they added and no Creed ones, that it was just weird ya know. Makes you wonder what this label is thinking if indeed they did this. They even called Creed fans by a name used to make fun of anyone who likes Creed. Then so many people tweeted back that it was taken off. Who does shit like that?
