Offspring wont release their new album on Net

Offspring announced today that they wont be offering their upcoming album, Conspiracy of One, for free over the Internet -- at least not until the retail CD is in the stores.
Sources close to the band say that this was a decision that was made when band made an agreement with their record label, Sony, about their promotion ways, etc..

Good thing is that band's first single, Original Prankster, is still going to be free -- it's going to be released in 29th September.

Sony obviously doesn't want Offspring to prove that spreading music for free could increase the number of sold CDs. This would be against everything Sony and other guys of RIAA have fought for in past year or so..
