>Supporting the scene

Advance Patrol is yet another band who has decided to release its new album El Futuro via The Pirate Bay — for free, fully legal. Click here to download.
Also visit their web where you can listen before download and if you like it, give these guys a few dollars at their paypal adress. I haven’t even heard the album yet, but I still contribute with 100 SEK to support their cause. This way the money ends up where they belong — with the artists!

Cool thing is that Advance Patrol, who was unknowingly being used against The Pirate Bay in the trial, this time own the music themselves, meaning they can do whatever they want with it.

The hiphop group known as Advance Patrol will release its new album on The Pirate Bay today. They will do so to spread their music to as many as possible, and at the same time discredit the prosecution against The Pirate Bay, a prosecution where Advanced Patrol has been used as a scapegoat in the circus around the court proceedings.
- We never asked to be plaintiffs in this case, Gonza from Advance Patrol explains, they used us as scapegoats in a fight in which we don’t wish to participate. We refuse to be used in a war against our fans.
- You cannot legislate away file sharing, Gonza says. Those who fileshares our music are also those who appreciate it the most. They are my friends, and friendship is something to be valued highly. That’s why we’re giving away El Futuro to the internet, to our friends.

    Haha, ja, dom är kassa, men poängen är att uppmana andra artister att följa AP:s exempel. Enligt kommentarerna på torrenten så är det folk som seedar och donerar några spänn för att stödja en god sak. Helt rätt!
    Unni Drougge gjorde samma grej med sin senaste ljudbok:

    Hon må också vara kass, men det är agerandet jag gillar.
    Gillar man det man tankar så donerar man några spänn till artisten.
