Red Hot Chili Peppers angered by Net leak

CNET "The Red Hot Chili Peppers have lashed out at a music pirate who leaked the funk-rock band's upcoming album onto the Internet, and urged fans not to download it illegally.
The band's spokeswoman said on Wednesday the offender was being tracked down. The group's first studio album in four years, 'Stadium Arcadium,' is still on track to go on sale on Tuesday via Warner Music Group's Warner Bros. Records, she said.
In a rambling open letter, the band's bass player, Michael 'Flea' Balzary, said he and his colleagues would be heartbroken if fans downloaded the album beforehand.
'For people to just steal a poor sound quality version of it for free because some a--hole stole it and put it on the internet is sad to me,' he said."
