To end our week of band interviews, Matt sat down with John Gourley of Portugal. The Man to discuss the band's success coming out of having every album leak early and speaking out about it during each release. This brings up the interesting question of whether it's okay to download in the spectrum of being a fan, if you've constantly supported said band before and later. Are leaks and illegal downloading as hurtful as we make them out to be? Is there a difference between sharing mixtapes back in the day and flat out libraries online now? Hit the replies and let's discuss.
Continuing with our exclusive Portugal. The Man content, you can now read a new interview with the band, check out our exclusive premiere of the acoustic video for "Colors" in the replies, and finally check out six pieces of John Gourley's artwork on their AP.net Profile, alongside the stream of "1989" we posted earlier in the week.
