We know it's April Fool's Day and all, but the band Daylight has apparently changed its name to Superheaven. Check out a listing from a North Carolina venue advertising a show with "Superheaven" opening for Nothing - the bio under the band name gives it away - which is part of a bigger tour. Nothing will play with Whirr, Pelican and Youth Code on select dates as well - all the tour dates are in the replies.

Spraynard are back together and will be working on a new album.
we were really tempted to announce the end of our hiatus tomorrow so everyone would think it was an April Fool’s joke… but we decided it’s probably more kind to just be honest with everyone. we have started writing new music and hope to release an LP at some point in the next year or so. oh, and we’re playing THE FEST. i think that gets announced tomorrow? seriously, this is not an April Fool’s joke. we’re really doing stuff again. maybe we’ll go on tour soon? who cares? we can do whatever we want now.

Today's interview comes from UK metalcore band Castor Troy. Read it here.
There are so many genres on the new album it's crazy, there literally is something for everyone. The lyrics are very well wrote, they're all based on real life events so tend to strike more of a chord with people. The music is wrote in such a way that we have utilised low tunings and orchestral instruments to create sombre moods and add depth to the tracks.

A small town bar in Ohio is in deep legal and financial trouble after a band played a cover of "Freebird."
The National Restaurant Association encourages the owners of the nearly 500,000 restaurants it represents to seriously consider the consequences of violating federal copyright law when deciding whether to pay for a music license. Still, many business owners choose to take the risk, assuming, perhaps, that their size, location or obscurity might allow them to play music under the radar. A large number of them eventually discover, however, that there’s no hiding from the protectors of performer’s rights.

Riley Breckenridge (Thrice) has posted a new track, "Black Death." Check it out in the replies.
I was presented with an opportunity to write some music for a particular beverage company that was looking for something dark, moody and timeless, yet modern (which is totally contradictory, but whatever ... 'tis the nature of the beast). So, I wrote this. It wasn't picked up, but I'm still kinda happy with it and wish you all could see what I was scoring when I wrote this. (it'd make more sense in context.) I think it's still OK as a standalone track, but out of context, I can see how it might be tough to digest. Figured I might as well share it, rather than having it rot on a hard drive...

Robert Smith of The Cure says the new band's new album is a bit of a sore point.
We're in a weird predicament in that I've finished singing and mixing an album that was made by a band that no longer exists. I'm not sure it happens that often. This band is trying to make an album with this lineup, and it's an album that I'm tempted to make, that's really different to anything else we've done. So trying to be convinced that I should release the second half of what is an effectively an album that came out in 2008, it's a bit of a sore point, really, to be honest, amongst this current lineup.

Against Me! are already thinking about their next release.
The whole process of getting Transgender Dysphoria Blues out was so long and drawn out and we have a lot of ideas backed up behind it. We are flushing those out now a little, playing around at sound check and whenever we have the time and we are in the right vibe space to just sit around and jam together. The next record will be out a lot sooner in relative terms from White Crosses to this one.
