Previously only available in the UK, you can now head to the replies to watch an hour long, rare interview with Rick Rubin by Zane Lowe for the BBC at Rubin's Shangri-La studio. They talk about Def Jam, American Records, Kanye West, the recording process, the bands and albums Rick has produced, a tour of the studio and much more. It's a great watch.

Here's a little something to get you all amped up before the Team USA game today: Noisey has written an article ranking Drive Thru Records' releases from bad to really bad. The label's co-founder, Stephanie Reines, weighed in with her thoughts, of course:
This is a GREAT tribute! The list of “worst” bands on our shitty-ass label reminds me JUST HOW GOOD our bands were and still are. Many of them still touring with fanbases bigger than ever! Fuck, me & Richard Reines have such good taste in music. And our branding was good enough to stand the test of time. They’re STILL talking about DTR 15+ years later. Bottom line: DTR AND OUR BANDS RULE! Hey, so does our former staff!

We have a pretty rad video exclusive today featuring Max Bemis talking about some of the songs on Say Anything's latest album, Hebrews. In the replies, you can check out Bemis going in-depth about "Kall Me Kubrick", "My Greatest Fear Is Splendid" and the title track. If you read my review of the album, you may recall that these three tracks are some of the most intense and unique ones on the entire album. The band is currently on tour with The Front Bottoms, The So So Glos, and You Blew It!.

Trapdoor Social recently released their new EP, Science of Love. You may remember their 2012 EP, Death Of A Friend, which featured Death Cab For Cutie’s Jason McGerr on drums. Today, we are premiering a live in studio performance of "Angel City" off of it. Fans of pop-rock with piano hints should enjoy this one.

Kanye West is currently teaching fashion classes at local LA colleges as part of his 250 hours of community service for assaulting a paparazzi.
West reportedly has held three seminars at L.A.'s Trade Technical College over the past two months discussing, as one student posted on Instagram, "the business of fashion and his personal experience within the fashion industry." His latest class, which took place Monday, focused on designers and lasted three hours.

Pity Sex is selling a limited edition crewneck in order to raise money for their van troubles.
We've had an ill-timed and expensive breakdown in Nevada en route to finish our summer tour dates with Tigers Jaw. We'll be leaving the van in Nevada for repairs and pushing on in a rental to play the SF, LA and San Diego dates. Unfortunately, the cost of the van repairs and the rental is going to wipe out all of our funds. To help raise some money, we've decided to reprint our Dogwalk crewnecks in a different color way. Orders will determine the quantity we end up printing and these will not be reprinted in this color way again.

Starting on Thursday, June 26th at 1 pm PST ... you'll be able to order The Matches' E. Von Dahl Killed The Locals on vinyl. The pre-order will be taking place on the band's webstore as they have gotten the rights to press this album themselves. It'll come out as a double LP: one black, one red. One album will be the original, pre-label version (which includes "Superman") and the second will be the version made famous by Epitaph. It also includes a 12 page booklet with old photos and memories from each member of the band. There will be 350 that will be signed and $40.00 and the remaining 150 will not be signed and sell for $35.00. All 500 will be numbered. These will go insanely fast....

Read my review and look at my photos from the Mansfield, MA stop of Fall Out Boy and Paramore's "Monumentour" with New Politics.
During Fall Out Boy's set, Wentz commented about how cool it is to have two rock bands with guitars that are played on the radio on tour together. Indeed, the Monumentour pairs two of our scene's biggest acts into one package. With dynamic, 75-minute sets from each band, fans of both are guaranteed to leave pleased. Maybe Save Rock and Roll was not, as naysayers purported, such a pretentious title after all.

The creator of Minecraft was the mystery buyer of Aphex Twin's unreleased LP.
Notch paid $46,300 for the LP — a test pressing that's believed to be one of only four in existence. As Joyrex says, a portion of the auction will go to charity, as voted on by his website's community. Current leaders include Doctors Without Borders and the World Wildlife Fund. The remaining money is supposed to be split between the artist himself and his record label.

Check out our new interview with Chelsea Grin from the Pomona, CA date of the Warped Tour here. The band's upcoming album Ashes To Ashes is out July 8th, and you can see them on the Monster Energy stage through the end of tour.
The EP was kind of like a start, a lot of experimentation, and the full length was a combination of so many styles of music. We have 15 songs on the album, so we wanted to experiment while at the same time have that crushing Chelsea Grin sound.
