...or is there WAAAAAAY less promotion for this album pre release than there was for BZCH??
I think you are correct. Wasn't there already a video out by this time for the last CD?

Still, can't wait to get mine!
The last one was tied into all the HoF buzz. A lot of that publicity were articles on HoF with mentions of a new CD
Yep. HOF buzz and also first album in awhile. I don't think they are releasing this for sales. They are doing it for the fans and for their legacy. God willing we get another 5-7 albums next 10 years instead of 1.

If only this was released to coincide with the HOF and not BZCH.  Hell, BZCH, was #35 on Billboard albums, then took a nose dive.  I liked BZCH, but there is no comparison with that and "We're All Alright".  WAA, is a tour de force, not one bit of filler...it's as close to perfect as a band can get.  This comes out last year as is, the band's career and lives would've changed overnight, for the better.  I hope this can get some love and become huge for them...finally, let it all come together for these guys.

You're so right!   I'm with you.. I thought BZCH was good, and it was....  but WAA is freaking amazing.   Every song would have been a highlight on any other record.   If ever a record deserved some promotion, it is this one.   Then again, most people's taste in music is crappola... so, who knows?
Agree, this blows BZCH away. FWIW it has been on iTunes and Amazon digital top 20-40 range all day today.
They're maybe not promoting it as heavily through traditional media but they are promoting the hell out of it over social media, which of course largely depends on followers to spread the word. But I think its working.
