So it's come to my attention in the past week that bands are putting their full albums on Soundcloud as soon as they're leaked.

The Kills uploaded their whole album after a leak earlier this week and the Foo Fighters uploaded their new album hours ago.

I'm sure other bands have been doing this (whether using Soundcloud or not) for a while, and I'm wondering whether it actually causes you guys not to download the album, but instead just stream it online until it is available for purchase?

I could only assume that'd be the point of uploading it...

Why did I never bother to check the release schedule and just assume it was coming out in three months time from now (now being whenever I gave thought to the album)

Guess I can wait, seeing it isn't three months away after all

I don't see what difference it makes. People are still listening to the music without paying. Like anti-piracy fags who listen to music on youchoob all day.

It'll probably increase sales i think.

People are gonna do it anyways. Might as well upload it yourselves to bring people to your own page.

There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

if i was a pirate, my thought process would be:

see on soundcloud > realize it's out > download so it goes on itunes with the rest of my pirate collection

not:

see on soundcloud > listen to on soundcloud
