I wasn't aware that 'basement demos' and a 'numetal jam' meant all new songs.
I also wrote a bit more info about the demos in the book. They were all just quickly recorded, obv. The one of Coffee Eyes was recorded live a few days after we started writing. I really wish the book didn't have all these delays. I'll look into the low bitrate shit.
Appreciate you looking into that. Like I said, if this is just to hold us over, then it's perfectly fine - but I was actually just as excited about this deluxe as I was having the book, so I'd like it to be decent quality if this is what the digital download is going to be (yeah I'm an audiophile). Maybe also mention to them to tag it correctly (actually just to tag it AT ALL), and remove that 7MB embedded PNG file. I mean, 7MB x 24 songs = an additional useless 168MB.
As far as the demos, I think they are awesome. And stoked to have a decent version of Me Vs The Highway since my split didn't come with a download card.
