I disagree but I will explain why.
LPLive, in the past, has taken a stance of being very... "pro-leak". We leaked a lot of stuff ourselves, a substantial amount of that being studio demos and professionally recorded stuff. The band and label looked the other way on most of that stuff until Chester passed. The conversations I had with them after I posted the Chester Dead By Sunrise demos indicated that their position has changed, RIGHTFULLY so since Chester is no longer here and the "vault" of stuff is now limited with no future additions by Chester being possible. They have been nothing but courteous to us in the past when we posted things like the Reanimation demos, etc. Mike wasn't against us sharing Xero demos, stuff like that.
WBR knows this song leaked. The band knows this song leaked. If they wanted to make a statement on it, they would. They are in an extremely vulnerable situation right now. Mike's world tour is over, there is complete silence from LP, etc. They are obviously trying to figure out if they can go on as a group, and if so, how. And on top of all of those difficult discussions, now a full song from the OML era leaks out of nowhere meaning they probably are unsure of how it even happened. So what else is compromised? Imagine being in the band and that happens. If Mike wanted us to have it, share it, and talk all about it, he'd have addressed it like he has addressed leaks before.
Warner is going to bat 110% for LP right now because of those reasons. Sure, they can look the other way on stuff, but that's a dick move to leak a full Linkin Park song when the band is in such a terrible spot. I don't blame them at all for going after the song. They obviously don't want to promote the song as it has no business being out there. If it was intended to be released, it would be released. Their first "promoted release" after OML Live isn't going to be some early OML demo.
This typically wouldn't be a big deal. Mike would probably be like "lol, you guys found something cool", but it's all about the timing, it's all about this happening so soon (in real terms for the band) after Chester's passing, and it happening by someone not affiliated with the band. For those reasons, I'm on their side on this one.
