Motion City Soundtrack Guitarist Comments On Album Leak

Posted by: Thomas Nassiff (05/23/12)
Motion City Soundtrack guitarist Josh Cain commented in one of our news threads earlier today about his band's new album, Go, leaking unfortunately early after the record was accidentally made available for public streaming on SoundCloud. You can read the statement below - we personally think the album is a real fun listen, so we suggest preordering the record.
From Josh CainSo "Go" leaked. I am not sure if this is bad or good thing. I really feel that the right thing to do is to wait till its released and enjoy the record the way we had planned for you. We worked really hard on this and are very proud of it.

we hope you like it and help us continue to make music by supporting us by buying our music.

Joshua Cain(mcs)

Any chance they'd push up the release date? I know other bands have done this...

Downloaded it to check it out, already preordered it on vinyl a few weeks ago. Don't regret my decision at all.

At least it was only a couple weeks ahead of the release date. Much worse has happened. Re: Say Anything

It is tempting to download it before committing to a vinyl copy

this happened to them with Commit This To Memory also, i think. that leaked like 6 months early or something to that effect. the bright side is that there isn't that long of a wait until the release this time around.

yeah, I'll wait until I get my preorder. Don't want to ruin the experience by listening to a crappy 128 Kbps...

I'm digging it. It's definitely a grower, but it's very enjoyable on first listen. To me, it sounds like a mixture of IATM and EIIKM, which is pretty dope. Like it's got the vibe/feel of IATM, but the sound of EIIKM. Also, i wasn't too sold on True Romance, but it sounds a lot better with the flow of the album. Can't wait to pick up a copy!

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.

I love motion city, preordered the vinyl right away. But I didn't know about the leak until they mentioned it on facebook this morning... Was kind of hoping they would pull a Man Overboard and email all the preorders a link to download a high quality version.

And in all honesty, the album is only a few weeks away, so it was destined to leak soon anyways. Probably would have popped up late next week somewhere. Could have been much worse, like the Say Anything situation. They recorded this album over a year ago, and in that sense, its awesome for them it leaked 3 weeks early instead of leaking a year ago.

on first-listen this has captured me faster than any other MCS cd i've heard. justin's vocals are so great. the music has (hate the term, and how people get butt-hurt over it, but can't think of a better word) matured so much.

Wow, this is really fucking good, like classic good.

Definitely picking this up when I see it in stores. (Too expensive to get it shipped)
