The Matches have a new Instagram account and updated their Twitter for the first time in nearly 4 years. Could it mean something? Maybe, maybe not - but it's fun to think about.

Stay Seventeen took some time to fill out our interview - you can find it here.
Our influence comes from a wide variety of bands, especially with the new stuff weíve been writing. One Direction, The Summer Set, Katy Perry, and Imagine Dragons have all seemed to find their way into the new songs! It makes for an interesting and diverse mix, which is something we want to be apparent in everything we put out.

Hit the replies to see a Taco Bell commercial featuring Brian and John of The Summer Set. Speaking of Taco Bell commercials ... did anyone ever wonder just what was going to happen if that dad caught the to-go taco-nacho munching, apparently daughter touching, kid in their last commercial?

A Yeezus film project, a collaboration with Bret Easton Ellis, is in the works.
You know what, I canít. Itís in Kanye Land, and thatís subject to a whole other time frame. He came and asked me to write the film. I didnít want to at first. Then I listened to Yeezus. It was early summer last year and I was driving in my car. Heíd given me an advance copy, and I thought, regardless of whether Iím right for this project, I want to work with whoever made this. So fuck it, I said yes. And thatís how it happened. That was seven or eight months ago. Weíll see what happens.

I really like him as a person. I know he comes off in this performance-art way in the press, but if youíre just alone...

As of now, the album is 17 classic BFS songs from the first 10 years of our band re-recorded to bring them the glory we think they deserve and 1 brand new original song!

The fifth annual OVO Fest, taking place in Toronto and put on by the city's own Drake, is the latest festival to announce Outkast as headliners. The recently reunited duo will headline the August 3rd date at Molson Ampitheatre. Special guests are yet to be announced, but when I attended last year Kanye West, TLC, A$AP Rocky, and Lil Wayne (among many many others) performed unannounced. I'm sure the milestone fifth year will be even more jampacked and thrilling. Tickets are on sale February 21st.
