I remember listening to this after I took my ambien last night... Apparently I pre-ordered the vinyl so I must have enjoyed it?

I think this is the first time since USPS jacked their shipping prices that I've ordered something directly from the label. This situation sucks and this band is too special for me to pass this record up.

Really sucks that this leaked so early. This album is great though band should gain a lot of fans from it

Derrick, who plays in the band, leaked the album himself. He sent it to people over the last few days and knew full-well that it would leak. While it 'sucks' that it happened, the leak was definitely more on the intentional side.

He explains his reasoning in this tumblr post: http://derrick-nathaniel.tumblr.com/...rds-piracy-etc

To sum it up for those who don't care to read it:

iíve been yelled at constantly for sending it people before itís release. i really donít give a shit about it being out. i donít see any money from topshelfís sale of the record. the money we make on the record comes from someone buying our copies at shows. we get a percentage of each pressing for free and sell those at shows. i donít think a record leaking is going to effect the sale of records at our shows. only a fucking dipshit is going to refuse to buy a vinyl record because they have the mp3s.

Pretty sure it's a joke. I've seen him answer plenty of asks on Tumblr and make fun of Greg.

It's 100% a joke. Greg's nickname is "Shitty Greg" and the band jokes all the time on tumblr about it.

The overall rant about the leak, however, is not a joke.
