Release type: Promo
Release date: 2006 (unknown date)
Format: CD (x1)
Number pressed: Unknown
Label: Interscope, Polydor France
Country: France
Matrix info:
CD-R 2P80LS52 1-2-1 0602012304-94
Notes:
Cardsleeve. Has a still on the cover from one of the homemade music videos.

Cellphone's Dead is listed as "Cellphone is dead". It's the edit.

It's possible this thing is fake. It's on a CD-R, it has no catalog #, and the printing on the CD is pretty lo-res. Plus it's kinda weird. If it is a fake, though, it's a kinda cool one.

1. Nausea

DVD promo with videos for seven songs on The Information. Interestingly some of them have very slightly different titles ("cell phone" for "Cellphone's Dead", "1000 bpm" for "1000BPM", "think im in love" for "think i'm in love") and one has an extremely different title - "Strange Apparition" is listed as "macademia"!

Also interesting is that the DVD's name (visible when you put it in the computer) is "DVDPALFORMICHELLE". Who's Michelle?
