Dear Warped Tour,

We need to talk.

I fell in love with you when I was newly 16 years old. It was 2007, and the first year I’d found a way to get to you. My friend and I made plans, and scrimped and saved, and convinced a parent to drive us all the way out to Wheatland, California to see you. It was one of the best days of my life up until that point. You were the reason I started a band. You were the reason I have a platform to write this today, because you lead me to discover the bands that made me want to write.

But that was then, and things change.

There comes a time where actions have to be amplified louder than words. I’ve loved you as much as I’ve ever loved...

Harbour will be touring Japan this August. Check the replies for dates.

Mary Bonney, writing for the LAMusicBlog, on her experiences in the music industry as a music journalist.
The democracy of the Internet is helping female music journalists gain a more level footing, but we need more women fearlessly writing in the face of sexism, like Lisa Robinson and Jessica Hopper and Lisa Robinson, who was famously told by Mick Jagger, “There really is no reason to have women on tour, unless they’ve got a job to do…the only reason is to fuck. Otherwise they get bored; they just sit around and moan.”

Bring Me The Horizon are apparently close to finishing up their new album. It is being mixed by Daniel Lancaster (Lower Than Atlantis, Don Broco, Mallory Knox), with his Facebook page suggesting the final mixes may have just been completed.

This time last year, there were so many of us challenging structures like the Warped Tour on their refusal to accurately represent female artists on their bills. We talked about the way it acts as a barrier to women who wish to get involved in alternative music and the message it sends to female fans that their place is solely in audiences, looking up to male artists and being treated only as groupies, “fangirls” or, if they’re lucky, backstage staff. We called upon Kevin Lyman and his peers to buy into the concept that they have a certain social responsibility to the people that they make their money from.

Today, Front Porch Step is playing the Warped Tour and may possibly play the...

We've been working on putting together this year's Absolute 100 feature over the past month (it won't go up until August, but this year's class is shaping up to be awesome), and while searching out the bands I want to pick for the feature I came across this Italian pop-punk band called NOW.HERE. Usually I'd sit on this pick until the feature goes up, but their new four song EP, New Perspective, is coming out July 7th and it's the first pop-punk EP I've actually found myself coming back to in a long time. It doesn't make sense to not talk about them over the next month when they've got new shit out. So, I reached out to the band to set up an exclusive stream of their new EP here on the...

Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties will not be performing on the Acoustic Basement today. "I won't be a part of the acoustic basement today and I encourage you to go see Man Overboard at 1:15."
Thomas Nassiff on Jul 01, 2015 - 9:03 AM
It looks like Front Porch Step is playing the Acoustic Basement at Warped Tour today. In case you forgot, this is the guy who had a petition started to remove him from the Warped Tour because of alleged improper communications with underage girls. He canceled his tour plans in lieu of the accusations.
Thomas Nassiff on Jul 01, 2015 - 7:55 AM
Hope everyone has a great day! Celebrate by blasting some Living With Lions, The Flatliners, Elder Abuse, Bleed American, Single Mothers or any other awesome Canadian bands you feel like listening to.
Deborah Remus on Jul 01, 2015 - 7:55 AM
Looks like Baroness are currently in the studio recording with Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, Thursday, Tame Impala).

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.

In celebration of the 10-year anniversary of Lights Out Paris, Sims has released the deluxe edition of the album via Doomtree Records. It's available on vinyl for the first time and digitally.

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?
