To Leave or Die in Long Island is the second release by the DIY collective Bomb The Music Industry!. It is considered a “mini-album” by the band members, because they feel it’s too much to be considered an EP, but it’s not enough to be a full-length. As with their debut, the album can be obtained by either downloading it or bringing blank discs to a BTMI! show.

The album was released by Asbestos Records on vinyl in December 2006, after a delay due to a manufacturing error. The first pressing consists of three versions on vinyl, and a limited edition picture disc.

Details[edit]

"Congratulations, John, On Joining Every Time I Die" is about BtMI! guitarist/bass player John DeDomenici, who singer/guitarist Jeff Rosenstock thought was going to quit BtMI! to join Every Time I Die. He did not. The line "1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, Pick it up, 1, 2, 3" in the bridge comes from the Every Time I Die song "Off Broadway".

The sample at the beginning of "Showerbeers" is from the movie Can't Hardly Wait.

"Bomb the Music Industry! (and Action Action) (and Refused) (and Born Against) Are Fucking Dead" contains a sample from the British sitcom The Office.

"Brian Wilson Says SMiLE! (a.k.a. Beard of Defiance)" uses a sample from The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie.
