Travis has brought us tons of pressings that would never see the light of day, If bands know about it or not. So I trust him.

And before someone says it's stealing from the artist. A it's midtown so lol and B it cost so much to press there's very little profit to be made for the band.
First of all: you seem pretty stupid.

Second of all: It was confirmed by your Username.

It doesn't matter how "little" profit he is making (which is probably a hell of a lot more than you think) he is still profiting off the work of others without their knowledge, consent, or cutting them a slice of that profit. It doesn't matter if it would have never seen the light of day, it's still morally and legally wrong to press someone else's music without the consent of the copyright holder.

The copyright holder is the label. It sucks but its life

Look at what he posted, the label had nothing to do with this either.

Drive-thru maybe but Universal I am guessing did.

I doubt what happened is illegal, but it still sucks for a band to find out about something like this through random channels, as well as have no input on the product.

Agree, but that is the music industry these days.

Both of the records being pressed were released on Drive Thru Records, Columbia put out Forget what you know, so I'm not really sure were Universal comes in to this at all.

Living well came out on drive-thru MCA. Remember the horrible deal we all heard about with drive-thru and MCA

I'm extremely exhausted and tired. In this tiredness, I somehow read this post as being a legitimate
rumor of a Midtown reunion.

If they would ever get back together I'd buy this directly from them at a show.... But.... I'm torn. I listened to Daryl about not buying worship&tribute (wish I would have) but this is difficult.

Bring the hate. Living Well will be worth it.

So it's not the usual SRC/HT joint release?
I can't recall a SRC/HT joint release.
