I remember back in 2003, Nuno leaked the snippits from the Self Titled album

It happens, I agree with no posting links to them, but do we have to pretend it hasn't happened? Come on.

What Ves is saying, is management is basically telling him to remove anything related to the album title and how I'm assuming also the leaks, or he's just getting proactive as to not get into trouble or the forums shut down.

Everyone is excited for the new album.

Everyone knows how and where to get leaks when they happen.

Let's just be patient, it's coming soon (ish)

Patience is indeed a virtue, and this place ainít very virtuous. Love this board but especially when a new Record is about to drop. The anticipation is frantic, lol.

What Ves is saying, is  he's just getting proactive as to not get into trouble or the forums shut down.

Exactly. Truth be told, we were reckless about this in the past and I leaked a lot of shit myself before. I won't deny.

But I'd like to believe most of us have grown and understand the risks. Also if you believe leaks help the hype: it doesn't. And it impacts the promotional work, and sales in the long haul.

How? One person hears a bad quality rip, they think it sucks (just because of the quality), they pass on purchasing the album and spread that opinion of theirs. Friends of that person will buy into that opinion. And it goes on. That's how you get opinions like "Bud of mine heard it in advance and told me it sucked, so I didn't listen to it". Then years later they come on a fan space like this one to say how dumb they were to believe that.

It's very obvious to me they don't want this out. They already removed clips from YouTube. Let's just be respectful about this. I'm sure it'll come soon enough and it'll be worth the wait.

As a reminder: we never allowed public posts of leaks on this forum, or at least, I've never seen it allowed since the day I became a mod. Never. What BLK did before I removed his post is not allowed, it wasn't before and it especially isn't now. Management has nothing to do with that.

Another note:


Every previous leak (of any album whatsoever) has NEVER started here. It was always someone coming up with a leak somewhere else, and then that leak would start pinballing on here. As it is (or used to be) the number one Deftones space, we definitely helped to an extent. We're just a very tiny bit of the internet though. It's not like it wouldn't have happened without sharinglungs.

Probably trying to keep out the noobs as well.

There's a YouTube link to a leak on the subreddit someone could do with taking down too.

Good points. Also, keep in mind what happened to the original Team Sleep album. It leaked when it was unfinished and multiple amazing sounding tracks ended up getting scrapped because of it. Team Sleep's legacy was ultimately affected by that leak. I can name other examples of leaks completely changing tracklistings that end up hurting the artist's work.

And see the people talking about the recent leak sounding more like a live recording or demo because it's essentially a shitty audio rip.

Well I like how this place comes alive during the build up to the new album, like the old days

No date for release and we are almost in August. This is either going to be a suprise release or pushed back to Spring next year.

Agreed! And totally respect the ďNo LeakĒ request, however I think I speak for most of us when I say if the entire thing leaked tomorrow Iíd still buy one or more copies to support the band I love.

No way it's pushed back to Spring. Maybe October/November.

The way the band and label operate Iím thinking itís pushed to spring to coincide with all the rescheduled dates. If theyíre saying September I automatically tack on about six months to that.

Vesanic must be getting paid by their management or something. I cannot for the life of me figure out why someone would be so obsessed with policing the sharing of some low-quality recordings. He's  leading the charge on their reddit page too, lol.

Well, it's still illegal to share copyrighted material. On their official pages is not a great look either.

Now that's one fucking bold statement. I got fired because of the pandemic. I wish I was paid by major music label, I wouldn't have a worry left.

Sorry to hear you got fired, man.

I still think you're taking it too far.
