Yeah, Fighting Leaks.. The Right Way

Posted by: Lueda Alia (03/04/09)
Due to the early leak of their upcoming album, It's Blitz!, Yeah Yeah Yeahs have decided to change the release date. The album's digital release will now be available next Tuesday, and the physical release will follow on March 31st.
Message From The BandThe cat's out of the bag after IT'S BLITZ! escaped from our clutches into the big bad world last week. Why should some have and some have-not?

IT'S BLITZ! OFFICIAL NEW RELEASE DATES:

DIGITAL WORLDWIDE MARCH 9TH , US MARCH 10TH.

IN STORES US MARCH 31ST, WORLDWIDE APRIL 6TH.

YYYs have been brimming with nervous excitement in anticipation of releasing this record to the world! Leaks are NO FUN but it's out of our hands. Can't help but ask ourselves, "What would the PHILOSOPHER do in times such as these?" We now present PART II of the SNAKESWEAT TRILOGY, Mr. Brian Chase soothing our troubled souls in THE PHILOSOPHER. LUV YYYs

that's not necessarily going to do much of anything for sales considering a lot of people download as an alternative to paying.. but, it's worth a shot.

It's just another way of fighting against early leaks, so I hope it works out.

See, I think this is a great idea. I think more bands should do this kinda thing if their album leaks.

Good call. I downloaded it just to see how it was shaping up, and it's damn good. When I get the cash I'll definitely be picking it up.

Bad Idea. The people who leak the CD and steal it win in this situation.

Disagree. The band is adapting to the problem rather than pretending it doesn't exist. The music is out there, and loyal fans want to hear it. I've read "I want to support this band, but it's tough to avoid listening to the leak" so many times on this message board.

amen. it's going to be hard for me when Blink's new record leaks because i swore to myself that i won't listen to any of it until its officially released. if it leaks months before it's released to the public, i will be pissed. it'll be like i'm on a vicious menstral cycle.
