Quick reminder to bands, labels, and industry folk that we're collecting "end of the year lists" right here for our year end feature. This way of submitting lists is for industry related folk and bands only. If you're a member/reader/special person of the website, you can post your top albums of 2014 lists right here in our forums.
The 1975 have canceled tonight's show in Indianapolis due to an illness in the band. Some fans are talking in the forums that last night at the band's show they looked very tired and Matty even commented about wanting to go home.
This is an interesting looking Kickstarter project that promises to be the "future for vinyl cutting."
The DRC is a Desktop Record Cutting package capable of cutting vinyl and/or vinyl-like material. The DRC is automated using precision engineered technology for ease of use [for new cutters], whilst allowing custom control, upgrades and modification for the experienced engineer.
Nearly a decade later, women dominate pop, but not rock. Yet Williams, who lives in Los Angeles, still matters -- more than ever. She is a dye-punk heroine who can pass for an electro-house diva, as she did by lending her voice to Zedd's "Stay the Night," which wrapped up 11 weeks at No. 1 on the Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart in February. She also is a post-emo veteran who maintains her base with adventures like this past spring's four-day Paramore fan-cruise to the Bahamas, Parahoy!, and this summer's co-headlining tour with a reunited Fall Out Boy. And she's an all-ages singer who can introduce Minecraft kids...
On Monday in a New York court, Gottwald and his attorneys filed suit against Geragos for the "horrific, outrageous and maliciously false assertion that [Gottwald] raped the world famous musical artist Lady Gaga." The lawsuit claims Geragos' comments were intended to "humiliate and severely damage" Gottwald's public image. It also blasts Geragos for keeping his comments online after Gaga publicly refuted the alleged rape accusation.
Jake Luhrs, lead vocalist of August Burns Red, has written a blog about Ferguson and the Christian church, which you can read over at HeartSupport.
The problem is that many of the comments on the civil rights issues being raised that we’ve seen from white “self proclaimed Christians” is one of back-biting, snide comments, and pointing to statistics on crime within the African-American community as opposed to getting to understand their brothers and sisters in Christ’s perspective and exactly why and how they’re hurting. Many don’t understand the systemic injustice and profiling that can happen to our brothers and sisters simply because of the color of their skin. And it’s because they’ve...
We have some news to report regarding our brother Jason White, and wanted you to hear it from us before word spread. Jason recently underwent a routine tonsillectomy, and his doctors discovered a treatable form of tonsil cancer. Thankfully they caught it early and he should make a full and speedy recovery.

After the recent (and great) interview with Noel Gallagher discussing music today, he has now sat down with BBC Radio 4 for Mastertapes for more thoughts. Watch a clip here of him discussing U2's decision to give away their album and this idea in general.
"See all this started with Radiohead, didn't it, and people have been reacting to that ever since. Then everybody went mad, I remember the Kaiser Chiefs were like, 'Make your own record tracklist, we'll give you a pound.' What?! You'll give people a pound?! It remains to be seen how Coldplay react to it. I firmly believe we'll all get a knock on the door at some point over the next two years and Chris [Martin] will be stood there. And...
Massachusetts metalcore legends Overcast's discography is being collected and re-released as a 3-CD set titled Only Death Is Smiling on February 3rd via Bullet Tooth. They'll be playing a few shows to celebrate; dates are in the replies.
Jack O'Shea of Bayside has undergone spinal surgery to fix a developing injury from performing. We send our thoughts and prayers to him for a healthy recovery.
So 11 years of headbanging and playing 11lbs plus Les Paul's had led me to spine surgery. A month ago I lost most of the use of my right arm and powered through a tour in Europe. I got home and decided to see a specialist to make sure my physical therapy was correct and was rushed into surgery. I had a 3 level fusion in my cervical spine and should hopefully get most if not all of my right arm back but it's right into intense physical therapy starting next week. Also my nurse is terrible at installing IV's.
Today is our time to come clean and reveal that with great thought and heavy sadness, we as 5 individuals have decided to call time on our journey as Morning Parade.
This is not down to musical differences, nor is it down to interpersonal relationships or band disagreements. It comes down to the simple reality that at this current point, for us to continue any further would be to do so at the detriment of our friendship, our personal, emotional, mental and financial well being, as well our enjoyment of music and memories of our time as Morning Parade.
Morning Parade has given us some of our greatest memories, dream like experiences, hysterical laughter,...
