50 Foot Wave “releases” their latest Ep, “With Love from the Men’s Room” along with the entire back catalog and other assorted goodies via torrent sites and Archive.org. We put the word releases in quotes because, well, releases just ain’t what they used to be. Hell, what is anymore?
All the recent SOPA – PIPA nonsense makes now an important time to walk our talk and make clear just what side we’re on. We did something like this in 2005 when we released Free Music for a pay-what you like price (waaaay before a certain other band did it) via torrent sites and Archive.org and again in 2007 when we offered Power + Light along with the entire catalog-to-date via CASH Music.
