Breaking Bad Soundtrack Volume 2 - Picture Disc Vinyl (Hot Topic Exclusive) & Blue Sky Pressing of Volume 1. 3 June 2014.

Hot Topic launched their online order page for Breaking Bad Volume 2 Vinyl Soundtrack (Picture Discs) today. This pressing is limited to 2,400 pressings. Last time, it was in store only, but this time you can buy it online, so get on it if you don't want to miss out.

As before, there will be a pressing or two from SpaceLab9 to follow this one, so if you're not a fan of picture discs, don't worry, you'll be able to get alternate pressings of this later.

Also, a Blue Meth version is coming July 29th (of Volume 1, not Volume 2) and is limited to 1,000 copies. This will be on sale at Hot Topic as well, not sure yet if it's online or in store, more details to come shortly. SpaceLab9 says, on that same website, " The reality is that we took note of the overwhelming public demand for "blue meth vinyl" and presented that to the owners of the Breaking Bad license. Only at that juncture were we granted clearance to do so when previously we did not have the freedom to do so. All of your collective feedback was certainly used in making a "blue meth vinyl" edition a reality. Folks, it is important to remember when you are handling a licensed release and especially one that is a big as Breaking Bad is that every single aspect-artwork,what images from the property are used and how they are used, placements of logos, where the record is pressed, vinyl colors, every bit of text in the record and even marketing info has to be approved be the license owner, so it is not as simple as "just do this or that". And I am not sure if I expressed it properly above-but what I think is very cool is that we were able to present the overwhelming public demand for the meth blue color vinyl to the powers that be and bottom line, late or not-they listened. So the community and fans played an enormous role in making the blue meth variant a reality which as a fan myself I think is very, very cool that you guys were able to speak so loudly and have your voices heard. Moving forward hopefully we can situate things in a manner where we try to make a very concerned effort to implement what fans want into future releases."
