Default In a World Gone Mad vinyl release?

I've run into a few "official" promo vinyl releases of In a World Gone Mad, and I see that it's listed as an official release on Beastiemania, but I'm wondering if anyone knows how this is proven to be true?

I don't see anything on the record that indicates that it was issued by Capitol and the catalogue number is just INAWORLDGONEMAD. Any idea who put this out or if it is indeed an official release?

I just remember when it was posted on the website in digital format back in the day.

Edit: I've also noticed that, at least on Discogs, a suspiciously large quantity of these are in Israel. Any idea what the deal is with that?

I suspect there was a true promo but it seems like it may have been bootlegged? According to link below there were only 200 copies but I've seen many more than that around. Mine has the promo sheet but no sticker.

It may have been a Europe only think through Capitol's sister label, Parlophone.

Good question.

I googled the guy - Kevin McCabe - listed on that sticker and he's definitely real, so it seems like this was a legit release, but like you said, bootlegs probably abound. One of the bootlegs has a different label, making it easy to detect. But I wonder if there were more bootleg versions, especially since a white label release wouldn't be tough to copy. This might explain the strange amount coming from Israel despite this being (apparently) a UK release.

I have a copy, I always thought it was legit.

Now I wonder if it is a bootleg. I do remember 12-inch white labels coming out back in 2003, but haven't seen them since.
