Mallcops will release the The Funniest Joke You've Ever Told EP on July 28. It's coming out via NDE Records, a new label started by members of the NDE (Non Denominational Emo) Facebook group which donates 100% of all profits to RAINN.org. "Ambulances" is the first song Mallcops have ever listened, and I can't be more excited to share this band's very first material with you. It ought to appeal to fans of pop rock like Anberlin and Cartel. You can stream "Ambulances" in the replies and be on the lookout for more from Mallcops.

The artist that designed the Sex Pistols' album artwork isn't happy Virgin are using it for credit cards.
Virgin have the rights to artwork as it was Sir Richard Branson’s record label that The Sex Pistols were signed to and released their only studio album on before their split.

Joanna Stern, over at the Wall Street Journal, has posted a quick primer for how you can turn off "auto-renewal" for the newly launched Apple Music. My first impressions of the service are mostly positive. I still think there's too much going on in the app, and the part I want and use most -- "My Music" -- seems kinda just there. But it works. I feel oddly attracted to this Beats 1 thing when my entire Twitter feed is talking about what's playing at the same time. I wonder if that novelty will wear off. Playlists aren't really my thing and the "select artists you like" screen had virtually no artists I like (and the device should have know that information from my iTunes usage anyway)....

Brooklyn trio Safety will be releasing their new EP called Congratulate Me, I've Lost My Mind and it will be out via Community Records on August 14th. Today we are premiering a new track titled "A Wealth of Sorrows in a Few Words" in the replies. It's a solid slice of punk rock blended with indie sensibilities - it'll be a big hit with those who enjoy Into It. Over It. and even Jimmy Eat World's more aggressive side. It's pretty dope and if you dig what you hear make sure you pre-order it on black wax.

Apple Music, the new streaming service from Apple, is now available when users upgrade to iOS 8.4. The company is still offering a free trial period of three months. Can it become what our Anthony Sorendino predicted it could become? What are your thoughts on the new service? Can it dethrone Spotify as the preeminent streaming service?

Today we're happy to welcome Anna Acosta to our staff. Anna's written up a little welcome blurb below. Please join me in welcoming her to our team
Message from AnnaAP.net has been my primary news source - albeit, mostly through Tumblr - for as long as I’ve been music blogging, and I’m thrilled to be joining the team. I’m a former publicist turned writer (need website copy? I’m your girl), musician and music journalist whose bread & butter is pop-punk. Faves include Coheed & Cambria, Automatic Loveletter/Juliet Simms, The Wonder Years, Pvris and Dr. Funke’s 100% Natural Good-Time Family Band Solution.

We recently spoke with Good Old War about their new album Broken Into Better Shape, which is officially out today. Don't forget the band will be chatting on the website tonight at 8pm EST.
We’re more inspired to write while we’re down, but on the other hand we never can leave it at that. We’re not the type of people that can just leave it at that. It’s like, we can get out of this, you know? By the time you’re done writing a song, you feel better, and that’s the whole idea. You can tell the story of writing the song with the song.

Luke Morgan Britton, writing for The Guardian, looks at the psychological dangers of life as a touring musician.
For many, the contrast between the highs of a successful show and the anti-climactic low that often follows can be hard to adjust to, a phenomenon that has been termed “post-performance depression’, or PPD. Mental health professional John C Buckner writes: “When the body experiences major shifts in mood, it is flooded with several different neurotransmitters, resulting in a biochemical release that leads to a feeling of ecstasy. After these moments the nervous system needs time to recalibrate itself to prepare for another release. After an exciting performance the body...

Greg Horbal has quit The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die.

Submitted by undefinedcolton

Update: Heard from management that Greg has not "officially quit the band" but that he will not be performing with them live any longer but may play on future records. And that "they are a very loose collective that have members come and go so it's not really like he left the band as much as he won't be as active with them."

Kelefa Sanneh, writing in The New Yorker, about Spraynard:
Like many of the most important pop-punk bands, Spraynard has figured out that the genre’s juvenile reputation doesn’t preclude thoughtfulness. In fact, the continued vitality of pop punk owes a lot to deft songwriters like Graham, who understand that energetic songs need not be cheerful. (In this respect, the genre’s true trailblazer is not Green Day but Blink-182, who chronicled depression and diarrhea with equal gusto.) “Mable” is full of songs about strained relationships, not all of them necessarily romantic—it is possible that Graham’s most traumatic breakup, and reconciliation, was with his band.

The major labels have settled with Sirius XM for $210 million over the satellite broadcaster's unlicensed use of pre-1972 music.
The lawsuit came in the aftermath of a class action filed by Flo & Eddie of The Turtles and aimed to use California state misappropriation laws -- also called common law copyrights -- to win compensation over the use of sound recordings made before such recordings fell under federal copyright protection. For years, record labels accepted publicity and no royalties from terrestrial radio operators, but changes in how music is consumed have changed the dynamic.
