This week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast covers such topics as: the Paramore and Copeland tour wrapping up, the Mad Men finale, how music die-hards should tackle getting getting into huge "classic" catalogs, and do pieces from reviewers about the classics help kickstart that process? Then we talk about how I found a whole bunch of my old reviews in the archive and debate what I should do with them. Is it ok to make edits? Is it ok to keep them on my hard-drive and let them just fade away? What about a director's commentary version? How does reflecting on and reading your past writing influence your current and future writing? Can we just pretend that my Your Favorite Weapon...

Last week I traveled to one of my favorite Philly venues, the Skyline Stage at the Mann Center, to check out All Time Low's Future Hearts Tour. The outdoor venue was met with perfect weather and a great crowd. Check out our photos and a review in the replies!
The show had witty banter, a teletubbie, an engagement, cover songs, a birthday celebration, and a ton of fans on stage. You can't ask for a better night than that. Bravo, All Time Low. Bravo.

Lydia will be working with Colby Wedgeworth and Aaron Marsh on their next album, tentatively set for a fall release.
“Devil is way happy … Devil was very much a summer record. The next one will be, in my opinion, very much a fall record. We’re going to release it right around the fall, and I feel like … Devil is like ‘Yeah, let’s go to a pool party,” Keller explains while his band mates erupt into laughter at his word choice. “The new record is going to be like ‘Let’s go to a park and watch the leaves fall or some shit. It’s a little moodier. That’s my piece.”

You can check out our interview with Emery here. The band's brand new album, You Were Never Alone, is out now.
Now this one I don’t really know, because so far they’re the most positive comments we’ve ever gotten. There’s two reasons that could be - one, the stuff’s great and everyone loves it; two, we’re releasing it ourselves, maybe we’re not getting enough people that aren’t predisposed to liking it to hear the record yet. I’m looking forward to moving ahead and pushing the record in general after the release, maybe we can get some negative comments that way, which means we’re reaching new people.

Having already produced songs for Jersey Shore and The Real World, England's Stealing Signs are poised to conquer both sides of the Atlantic. The group's new single, "Hide and Seek," doesn't drop until June 29th, but you can stream it a month early in the replies. With eccentric riffs, grooving verses and a soaring chorus, the track could easily be mistaken for the next Biffy Clyro hit.

Mike Errico, writing on Medium:
There are many more examples of technology influencing song form, of course. But it’s crazy to witness the hangover from previous technologies that now are being declared dead. For instance, if the CD is dead/dying rapidly, why are people still making 10-song buckets of three-minute songs? Well some aren’t, that’s true, but the rethinking has not yet taken hold in a full-fledged way. Most of my students are making five-song EPs, which is also a holdover.

Visa problems have led Asking Alexandria to cancel two upcoming shows.
"We have spent the last few days doing everything we possibly can to make sure that these shows wouldn't be cancelled but at the end of the day the US government took far longer than anyone could have predicted giving Denis his visa which has left us no time to finish his visa process to enter the UK.
