Never, ever said FOB would have no right to be upset, livid, or hateful towards me. They absolutely did have the right and still do. I took the air out of their balloon. ............

Yeah. And "that shouldn't be the norm," or whatever right? Good one.

I feel like one of the biggest factors contributing to the drama coming from this scene every now and then is the fact that the members of most of these bands are still young. Some of them are probably somewhat immature even if they (sometimes) make quality music (also, I know I'm young, but that's irrelevant to the point I'm trying to make).

I've enjoyed some of this bands previous work, but for some reason I just don't care about this release. Like not even enough to listen to it.

Nailed it.

Thought more about it today and the funniest thing is that, had this been a "normal" leak straight from some bum's macbook to zippyshare, we'd all join arms and agree that's a little messed up to post as news. The relatively minor technicality that Spotify streamed it for the bum to rip legitimized it as a news story, despite that the impact to the band is the same.

So I'll second Zak and clarify the target as he since has. FUCK Spotify. Hard.

Not a minor technicality, given that there's no reasonable expectation when an album is on iTunes/Spotify/Amazon that it was done without the band's consent. And given that the album is streamable vs downloadable, the impact is less.

Agreed, and I agree it became a legit story when it streamed as no one had a real reason to believe it was the epic Spotify fail we now know it to be. Except for the band, but who would've thought to ask them if it was legit (not me)- I mean what music streaming entity would screw up that bad? It was really so unfortunate in this way because it was almost no one's fault but Spotify. I only meant the difference was minor to the band since of course it was ripped nearly instantly. I bet Spotify is down one useless intern as of next week.

Spotify doesn't give two shits about some mediocre pop-punk band, or some obscure record label like Rise that I'm sure none of them have even heard of. They have a lot more important, larger bands and labels to worry about.

Should Zac be upset? Yeah, I'd be. Should he had directed those comments to AP/AltPress which essentially is his fan base? No.

Also what's with the douche in TSSF making that comment regarding us? I don't follow the band so I wouldn't know.

I don't think Zac's wrong for getting upset- I mean it sucks when records leak, but let's be real in 2013 it happens- but I think he got mad at the wrong people. I know Circles & Soundwaves is nowhere near as big as AP.net or AltPress but from the point of view of someone's who in "music journalism/blogging" as well, my thought is this: I will only post about a stream of an album that I believe to be coming from a legitimate source, if I knew something had "leaked" or been streamed illicitly/without the band's knowledge, I wouldn't post it. Sharing a record that has leaked on some rando website is gossip, not news. I trust AP.net and AltPress as verifiable news sources and have faith that they would only post something that they have reason to believe is legitimate.

So yes, perhaps AP/AP made a mistake in posting about the stream (I don't know, does anyone know exactly how it managed to get on spotify early?) but it was an honest mistake. My inclination is that AP/AP would not post something they believed to be an illicit leak, so yeah somebody screwed up but it wasn't AP/AP.


Also agree with everyone who's said that the way musicians act affects what they listen to. I interviewed TSSF for Circles & Soundwaves a few years ago, they weren't happy with what I wrote about it and Parker certainly didn't hesitate to tell me this when I saw them again a few months later. I don't remember what he said word-for-word but it was a pretty unpleasant exchange- honestly this put a pretty bad taste in my mouth about TSSF for awhile. Everything's cool now and I have no bad blood with them but for awhile that interaction with Parker made me not want to listen to them.
