Fix that pipe...

Post by Kit on Thu 28 May 2009, 4:10 am

There seems to be a leak.

What do you all make of this early album preview? Initially I just felt really bad that the ES guys have all worked really hard and arranged everything to have the release on a certain date, and all it takes is one fool to ruin it for everyone... But then I thought some people might hear it and decide to buy it when before they weren't going to. I don't know how many people think like that, but if I like something enough that I've got for free and think it's worth paying for, then I'll buy it. So then I had the crazy idea that maybe they leaked it on purpose for a bit of publicity.

It's no secret that most people download all their music for free now, and many bands and artists admit that they're going to end up making most of their money from gigs / concerts than from record sales with the industry in the state it's in. So it wouldn't surprise me if they were looking for some early hype to get people more excited for their upcoming performances. Anyway, I digress...

Discuss.

The people who were gonna buy it will still buy it, the people who were gonna download it can just do it abit earlier. Its not like by leaking it all the people that were gonna buy it now have access to download it they wouldnt have had anyway, they would have been able to on release day anyway. The leak ruins the anticipation and wait for it, but tbh they originally said a May release and it happened Wink
I'll still be buying it for the DVD, bonus CD, and hope of a London signing so there's not really much harm done.

The leak did not lose the anticipation for me...
I've been waiting for this album since last year. A few weeks wouldn't have made much difference.
Idk about the whole self leaking thing, but I wouldn't have downloaded it if I reckoned I wasn't going to order it anyway - I mean I did order it, bundles and all. It's majorly pissy for the band because there will be a lot of people that download it and won't buy it, but that happens so much nowadays it's pretty inevitable. They probably would've done it when it was released... they just got their chance earlier.

I admire your perseverance Josh, I was gonna wait till it was released too, lasted a few hours after finding out about the leak before I just had to hear it, obviously I still have every intention of buying it though.
It makes me want the physical album even more actually, I'll be just as psyched playing that for the first time as I was hearing it a couple days ago.

I've heard of bands deliberately leaking albums before as well, could just be a treat for the fans or they just can't wait to get it out there.

I'm still anticipating receiving my physical copy, my dvd, my live cd and my t-shirt on the 15th. I felt bad downloading it for like 10 miutes, but then I realised that they haven't lost a sale, It's just listening to it early.

So he says. he probablyhas a copy anyway.

Iv heard the album, but I'l be buying it when it comes out, I want the DVD. Not really bothered about getting "signed" stuff from ES, its a bit like asking Warner and Malky to sign things for me haha.

as was said before. I dont think this will effect sales much as people who download the leak with no intention to buy when it is released would likely not have intended to pay for it when it was released either.
