The leak came when Crash Boom Bang! unintentionally ended up available to buy on Spotify three days before it should have been. Quickly discovering the leak and rectifying the situation, lead singer and guitarist Brian Ray said: “I learned it was our A&R guy, Rob who did it by accident!

As such it is automatically enter into the top 20 and be played on maximum rotation.
