Editions

A limited-edition version with all of the album's contents, a death certificate and a mask designed by one of the band's members were also available, but are now sold out. This edition is housed in a coffin-shaped box. There are a total of five masks, one designed by each member, but only one is inside the packaging and is selected randomly. The masks can now be purchased separately or in a group of 4 on the band's website. The album is also available in explicit and clean editions.

¡Venganza!

In March 2009, the band made an announcement on their official website that they were releasing the encore set from the Mexico City show, in which they came out with Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge style clothing and the stage set up like the Revenge tour, and played nine songs from the album. It is available for pre-order, and it comes with a vest, and the videos are put onto a special bullet shaped USB flash drive.
