In a recent interview with UltimateGuitar.com, Job For A Cowboy front man Jonny Davy commented on albums leaking early and his own music downloading habits. An excerpt from the interview is below.
UG: Are you annoyed that 'Ruination' has been leaked through the internet?
Jonny Davy: Leaking happens, so 'Ruination' being leaked is no biggie. I'm an illegal downloader myself, so I can't blame anyone.
UG: Do you endorse illegal downloading then, since you're an illegal downloader?
Jonny Davy: I wouldn't say I endorse illegal downloading. I don't really think illegal downloading affects things too much, especially when you're an underground metal band. Downloading, and finding ways to get albums heard, is almost like the new era of tape trading. I can't complain - I definitely do it myself.
