More on the Japanese release, courtesy Commy

Commy, who runs The Perfect Drug, has always come through with the Japanese info, and she brings us some more detail on the Japanese edition of With Teeth. Some of this may be redundant, but that's okay because Commy is cool.

There will be a regular edition, as well as a special edition. Both versions of the Japanese Halo 19 will have a bonus tracks.

The Limited Edition will be 2 disc set (normal CD and DVD), and includes a 40+ page colored booklet. The limited edition DVD will also include alternative versions of some songs, and some movies from "With Teeth" itself.

Tower Records in Japan is taking pre-orders, listing the official release date as April 27 - a week before the rest of the world is slated to get it.

In related news, on March 2, Japan will get the Deluxe Edition of The Downward Spiral. It titled "The Downward Spiral + 13", but the contain songs are as same as TDS-DE (SACD version).

Thanks again as always, Commy!

NOTE: Don't worry, this double-format is not going to be limited to Japan, if this is how they do it. Trent had already mentioned on nin.com that he intends to release the new album in both CD and 5.1 surround formats, and that seems to be what this limited edition is.
