Queen Moo is a young Connecticut-based punk act with members that have played or currently play in Two Humans and Sorority Noise. Incidentally, bands like Sorority Noise and Modern Baseball serve as good comparisons for Queen Moo's new song "Have It," which you can stream exclusively in the replies. Don't fret if there are aspects of those bands you dislike, though: Queen Moo is best characterized by their unique blending of group vocal melodies and interesting chord progressions. Their self-titled LP is out August 10, and a pre-order will be live soon.
The only clarification we've seen from the Sum 41 camp on if Dave Baksh has joined the band again as a permanent member is a response on Facebook reading, "all options are open right now" and "there's no yes or no answer to that."
HitsDailyDouble is reporting that Apple Music's subscription numbers are in the 10 million arena after four weeks. That would be far higher than what I'd previously guessed.
Apple doesn’t make its streaming numbers public but is showing reports to those rights holders, who have been surprised by how big those figures already are. Some streaming numbers (notably on a couple of cutting-edge hip-hop titles) are actually competitive with Spotify’s. Some rights holders feel Apple should publicize these figures; the decision to do so or not falls to Eddy Cue. But releasing the numbers would likely go a long way toward turning those who don’t yet get it into believers.
Hit the replies for a Travis Barker interview with Big Boy at Real 92.3. He discusses his dream collaborations, his upcoming memoir Can I Say, the long road to recovery following his plane crash, and more.
Buddy from Senses Fail posted a lengthy message on Twitter last night about the state of the music scene and the bullshit going on in it right now. It's definitely worth a read.
This music scene is literally filled with dudes in bands who are trying to have sexual relationships with underage girls. It's fucking crazy. People in newer and younger bands are extremely uneducated as to proper behavior. We are in serious need of people in the community to speak up and set examples on how to conduct yourself online, at shows and in private because apparently there are a lot of men who aren't getting the message, don't care and don't think their actions are causing irreversible harm. Silence...
I recently spoke with Jose Pasillas, the drummer of Incubus. The band had originally planned on releasing another EP later this year, but now they're considering doing a full-length instead. See the interview here.
This is an experiment for us. We’re writing, recording, rehearsing, and touring all back to back. We’re exploring our options and we don’t have anything set in stone, so that may be an option for us to put out a whole record.
