Last October, Island/UMe celebrated the 15th anniversary of Hoobastank’s sophomore studio album The Reason with a multi-format reissue that includes five bonus tracks. In addition to being released as a digital deluxe edition, The Reason also made its vinyl debut on both standard black and limited-edition white vinyl. Both vinyl editions includea bonus never before released acoustic version of the Southern California band’s biggest and most impactful hit with the album’s titular song.
The digital deluxe edition includes the bonus tracks “The Reason (Acoustic)” plus four long-unavailable B-sides: “Force Feed Me” (previously unreleased), “Connected” (from Halo 2 Original Soundtrack and New Music: Volume One), “Did You” (from the soundtrack Spider-Man 2 – Music From And Inspired By), and “Right Before Your Eyes” (from the Daredevil: The Album soundtrack).
