Just in case you haven’t been following what’s going on, Derek Webb is on the cusp of releasing a new album named Stockholm Syndrome. However, apparently some of the content is a bit edgy (imagine that) and he’s offended his record company. Not to be stopped however, Webb and company have started an online and nationwide scavenger hunt of sorts to somehow release the material and work around copyright issues. Details are still emerging, and theories abound, but this is really cool stuff! Relevant magazine is calling it a publicity stunt, but I think knowning Webb’s music, that that controversy is real. There’s a lot ot explain about all the websites that you need to know about, so I’m not going to go into it all, but check out these links:

I’ve figured out a lot of the current story using derekwebb.net and shemustandshallnolongerexist.com. However, there’s a lot to take in. If you don’t research this stuff, what I have listed above will be confusing, but Twitter me @biggzipp and I’ll explain anything I’ve figured out.
