Heard the new Mars Volta record?
Maybe downloaded it from a mate's website?
What you're doing is f*cked.
Staff at the band's label, GSL (co-owned by band members), are pissed at the pre-release version of Frances The Mute currently doing the web rounds. So pissed are they, that they've issued a frank statement:
"The collective GSL staff and certain members of the band think what you are doing is f*cked. You should honor the band's wishes and take the songs down. Leaks suck, and are an unfortunate evil of the Internet. It sucks even more when it's such a bad copy as what is being passed around right now. As much as the hype that's swept over the internet for this release is amazing, no one wished anyone to hear such an amazing album in such piss-poor quality this side of the 70s."
Frances The Mute is really bloody good, so say we. But DON'T download it, kids.
