The band DOES make those decisions first and foremost. However, for an album from 5+ years ago, we're waaaaaay past "first and foremost". If the band under-pressed a record, sold the rights to the...

If Ross doesn't know how record contracts work, then this should be a simple legal solution. I'm beyond sure that Will can get a lawyer to fix a situation like this.
