San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 2, 2010
Disgusted with the RIAA's lawsuits against music lovers, San Diego based rock / punk band The Experiments has released their new album, "What Kind Of Animal?" for free under the Creative Commons license. Anyone is free to download, distribute, re-mix or otherwise use the songs for non-commercial purposes.
"It's ridiculous that a single mom gets fined $1.9 million for downloading 24 songs. It's criminal, and the RIAA are a criminal organization," said the band's bass player, Dave Blood. "So, we say, take our songs for free. You deserve them."
"What Kind Of Animal?" is the band's 5th release. It is a complete DIY (Do It Yourself) project, with the band writing, performing, recording, and mixing the songs themselves. It can be downloaded at the band's website, TheExperiments.com.
"We recorded it in this big wood shop that some friends let us use. We pushed the band saw and drill press aside, and set up the drums in the middle of the room. It sounded great in there," said singer / guitar player Dan Bonn. "We did the vocals in Dan's bathroom, and mixed it in his spare bedroom," added Blood.
The Experiments have played their style of rock and punk in San Diego and clubs across the USA since 1994. Influenced by The Who, The Ramones, Cheap Trick and others, the band has toured the US and played in iconic clubs like NYC's CBGB and Chicago's Thurston's.
