New Release to Bypass Audio-Only CD Format

"When Ohio-based rock band the Sun releases its first full-length album
next month, it will be available on DVD, online and on vinyl record.
But not on the medium that’s still the biggest seller in the music
industry today: the compact disc.

"Warner Bros. Records Inc.expects the Sun to be the first of many artists to embrace a no-CD, video-only strategy."
