Early this morning, the leak was pretty difficult to find. A few people had stumbled upon it; even fewer ripped it. A few of the rippers weren't even going to share it.
MCS couldn't keep their mouths shut about it, and then it spiraled out of control. Now a simple Google search will give you the record.
They share some of the blame.
the problem is not how many people got to listen to it. the problem is that it leaked. which is the fault of Epitaph Records, and them alone. Motion City Soundtrack is only at fault for it coming people's attention faster, but bottom line, if it was out there to begin with, it would have been spoken of or found by someone else, and then snowballed just the same. the album leaked, and that sucks for them, but don't blame the band.
