Fiction Family Record Leaks Online (UPDATE: False Alarm)

UDPATE (9:42 AM): False Alarm. The torrent is a fake. Close call though!

Fiction Family's debut release is now available for listening -- but probably not in the way intended. The album has apparently leaked online as of 8:52 AM PST. The torrent file is available for download, but a link will not be posted on this site for legal reasons. We are waiting for official confirmation for this fact, but if this is true, the record will have leaked more than a month before street date.

What do you all think of this? Is bittorrent/filesharing ultimately beneficial for a band or harmful? I mean, the band did, after all, release their first single, "When She's Near," for free. Discuss. Will update throughout the day.
