Band 'Releases' New Album Via Chatroulette

from the it's-a-bit-risky-to-find... dept

By now you've probably heard of the latest internet fad, Chatroulette, which has been pretty much covered to death in the media (though, not us, until now). If, by some amazing chance, you've missed out on this, the best summary would probably be Jon Stewart's amusing take on it:

However, the reason we're mentioning it here is that Mathew Ingram alerts us to the news that a band going by the rather catchy name of Holy Fuck has decided to leak its new album via Chatroulette. Of course, since Chatroulette is totally random, there's no way to actually find it, except by accident -- meaning you're not going to find it, and as the reporter at the link above discovered, you have a pretty high likelihood of running into something that might disgust you. Still, an amusing marketing gimmick all around.
