I heard that this album leaked. It's of no consequence to me because I've never illegally downloaded anything in my life and I've never heard a single song by these guys but, damn, that's a flippin early leak isn't it? May 26th release and it leaks in the first week of March. I wonder if they'll pull a Yeah Yeah Yeahs and push the release date up.

Apparently it's an extremely poor quality leak as well...128kbps. Here's what one of the members said via Twitter: "I'm trying to be zen about the album leaking because I'm "ok" with it, but I'm bummed. And apparently it's [a] low quality rip. So now everyone will be judging it off of a crappy rip. Sigh.... Was hoping to make it to at least april! I'm cool with it just....so early!"

So, I'm guessing they won't push up the release, but like he said, it's too bad that people are going to judge the album based upon a flawed copy. I'll, at the very least, be waiting for a better copy before listening, and of course, will buy it when it comes out.

That does suck for them, I'm doubting Warp has the means or ability to completely change their production schedule and release it earlier like majors can do.

Leaks suck.

See, Scumby? Leaks, although slow and dangerous behind the wheel, can still serve a purpose.

For the record, I didn't download it. As one of my more anticipated albums in a while, I'm waiting to hear it in pristine quality.

the good news is i expected the audio quality to be really, really, REALLY bad, and it was just crappy, but not really, really, REALLY bad.

True, but it just sucks that in reverse, there will be people who say "it sounds like crap" based on a terrible quality leak, or will just get sick of it after having it for 2+ months before it's released, and never get around to paying for it.

I just feel worse for bands like this, as they really need all the sales they can get. I can't think of any upsides to a 2+ months in advance leak for them.

I actually agree with you completely on this one. I just wanted an excuse to quote Dumb and Dumber.

I'll be waiting for the album to come out to get it. Yellow House was a beautifully understated album, they deserve my money for another one.

I'm not listening to a crappy leak to ruin the first time.
