    I’m surprised they would do this after that mess in February. With that being said I’m glad they and Simple Plan finally addressed the tour and that it will still happen when time allows.

    The album was leaked by iTunes/Apple Music I believe.

    I honestly don’t get this. The album has leaked. Should have released it shortly after the leak imo. I would have immediately purchased it. With this drawn out release I haven’t even listened to the second single yet.

    I think we're going to see more bands doing this. But I agree that given the album leaked before it was even announced this seems a bit silly.

    Hindsight is 20/20. Agree that they should have released it right then and there.

    Really? I would think band would want to release stuff now seeing as how there’s no tour money coming in anytime soon. I imagine album stream/sales would be wanted badly by a number of bands who called off shows right now.

  10. This makes no sense, who even comes up with a decision like this.

    In terms of overall sales I assume you're going to lose potential sales releasing an album when people don't have disposable income and no accompanying tour. For example the new All Time Low album seems to have not done well sales-wise (so far, anyway).

    Plus it's a lot easier to, say, knock up some merch designs which you can sell out of a webstore than it is to record new music.
