The Celldweller Definitive Edition celebrates the 20th anniversary of that act’s debut as a three LP vinyl and expanded three album digital version featuring remastered audio along with dozens of bonus tracks and all new remixes and re-imagined versions of iconic tracks from the album.
The vinyl and digital versions of the album are available for pre-order now from FiXT with December this year and February 2024 as release dates, respectively.
Available today is a brutal metalcore re-imagination of the hit Celldweller track ‘Switchback’ from synth metal / deathcore artist and label-mate, The Browning, infusing it with heavier vocals and guitars with all new lyrics in the bridge.
“It was a big moment for myself and FiXT when we inked a deal with Jonny (The Browning). The next natural step was to figure out something we could work on together. The idea that excited us the most was Jonny not simply just doing a remix, but instead reimagining “Switchback” as a song by The Browning. As a fan of Jonny’s, I love this version of the song and I know Celldweller fans will too,” said Klayton, aka Celldweller.
Continuing, he noted regarding the album: “I had no idea that making the debut Celldweller album 20 years ago would ultimately be the thing that would change the trajectory of my career. From every song being licensed to film, TV, and video games, to worldwide tours, and launching my own record label, FiXT, which would go on to support the careers of 50+ artists over the last 17 years.
“Now celebrating its 20th anniversary, we have curated the Definitive Edition which includes a brand new remastering of the original album along with dozens of bonus tracks, rarities, remixes and re-imaginations of the original songs. To those who have been listening over the past 20 years, I truly appreciate your support and plan on making a lot more Celldweller music over the next 20. Stay tuned.”
