Look Mexico responds to leaks, announces new pre-sale info…


Ah, the digital age. Everyone feels entitled. Fans of music believe it should be free, while bands dish out dollar after dollar and sweat it out on the road for months on end. What a fair trade, right? Well, considering most of you treat album leaks like the milk or juice in your parent’s fridge, you’ll probably perk at this piece of news. Indie heroes (and SXSW participants) Look Mexico suffered a blow this week when its forthcoming sophomore record, To Bed To Battle, surfaced on the net. Mind you, the release date isn’t ’til March 23rd.

But the band’s hip to the current times and they’ve offered their fans a new deal. Now, if fans pre-order the album via Suburban Home, they can get a direct download immediately, in addition to the physical release which is still slated for March 23rd. There are a few other goodies you can grab as well, including deluxe sets which will contain a CD, an LP, a pint glass, a goozie, a poster, a button, and even a t-shirt. Of course, those will probably be for the more die-hard fan.

However, if you already downloaded the album, and feel slightly guilty about it (considering they’re still a small indie act), you can donate some cash and help ’em out while they’re on the road. Speaking of which…
