Interscope/Cherrytree Records is re-packaging the album as Welcome Reality +, which will include two new original tracks as well as the Skrillex-assisted remix of "Promises," the original of which debuted at No. 1 on the U.K. charts and recently was certified Gold in the U.S. The album is set for release October 22.
Welcome Realityinitially came out on the band's U.K. label MTA Records last August, before Rene -- who had been tracking the band for three years -- was able to bring them to Interscope with the intention to break them in the U.S. "To me they're the rock band of this electronic, EDM space," Rene said, musing on what attracted him to the group initially. "That was one of the most interesting things I'd heard in a long time... It was really progressive for a major label like Interscope [to sign them], when a lot of people here weren't quite ready for it."
