Error in release

"Intervention" was set to be released on December 26 2006 as a charity download for the Haitian charity organization Partners in Health. When the band was uploading the song however, they accidentally uploaded "Black Wave/Bad Vibrations", another song from their album "Neon Bible". "Black Wave/Bad Vibrations" was removed shortly thereafter and "Intervention" was properly uploaded two days later.
