American Authors have hit #1 on the Adult Top 40.
"Best Day of My Life" lifts 2-1 on Adult Top 40. First released on the Brooklyn band's self-titled EP, which topped Heatseekers Albums for two weeks in January/February, the song doubles as the lead track from its debut full-length "Oh, What a Life," due on next week's Billboard 200. The song (up 23-21 on the Hot 100) is a band's first career-opening single to rule Adult Top 40 since the Lumineers' "Ho Hey," which led for eight weeks and became the format's top title of 2013.

A judge on Friday decided to leave the royalty rate that Pandora pays to songwriters the same.
Ascap, which represents millions of songs, had asked the court to raise Pandora’s royalty gradually from 1.85 percent, its current rate. Pandora sought a rate of 1.7 percent, which is what most commercial radio stations pay Ascap. The difference represents a potential shift of millions of dollars for the whole industry, and the case came to symbolize the economic conflict between technology companies and the traditional music industry.

Handguns have parted ways with drummer Woody Spokas.
Anyone who was expecting to see me on the Love like tour with All time Low and Man Overboard sorry but I won't be seeing you guys. With the tour approaching fast I figured it's about time I released a statement. Handguns decided that it's best for me to part ways with the band. I was a member of Handguns for the past 2 years and exceeded way more than I thought I ever would in my life. It was the best 2 years I've ever had in my life and will hold onto those memories and the people that I've met forever. My position in the band can be replaced without a doubt but, those accomplishments and the stories I made will never be ...

All of the proceeds from the show and video go to the Stony Brook Hospital Pediatric Cancer Care.

Night Windows filled out our interview, the answers to which can be found here.
I looked everywhere and came up with a ton of names, and the only name that really stuck in my mind was Night Windows. So, I decided to pay homage to one of my favorite bands (The Weakerthans) and name the band Night Windows after one of John K. Samson's most beloved songs.
