The eagerly awaited follow-up to Silversun Pickup's 2006 triumph Carnavas has unfortunately been leaked online just two weeks before its April 14 release. Fans (and hackers) who have already snatched up the album Swoon may
have the new songs before anyone else, however nothing recorded onto a digital format can compete with the band's electrifying live performances.
Sure, others may have the raspy-vocaled, poetic, stirring song files before you do, but at the Glass House (and Coachella next weekend), you've got the real thing.
