An artist claims he worked with and for My Chemical Romance in 2009 and has not received credit. Gerard Way has responded on Twitter by reaching out to the artist with, "Vasilis, I have now seen what you wrote. I think this is absolutely not the way this should be handled. Obvious we need to talk."
Time passes with no word of the record/project/anything and in the summer of 2010 I get word from a friend that "my video was out" I was in China at that point, trekking mountains that no whitey has seen before and it took me some time to get around some internet and around that stupid Chinese "no google" wall thing. I saw the video with what it looked like my guns, and my costume designs. I...

This week's AbsolutePlaylist may feel a bit bizarre. Shaped around my night owl tendencies, "night moves" features the finest, darkest, and starkest cuts from some of my favorite artists - the type of music I want to listen to whether I'm driving aimlessly at 3 AM or lying in bed restless. Expect imperfect vocals, raw and ultra personal lyrics, loud/quiet/loud dynamics, and the unexpected. And one can only truly experience said playlist once the sun sets. Let's get weird in the replies.

Remember, if you'd like to submit your very own playlist, head over to our submission thread!

Thomas promises this is the last week his microphone will have an echo and I promise this is one of my favorite episodes of the AbsolutePunk Podcast yet. This week we talk about the Apple and Beats deal finalizing and how that plays into curated playlists vs full album listening habits. Then we touch on major labels and their structure and place in the industry before tackling the upcoming Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties album. We round out the conversation discussing if Blink-182 should just go on hiatus again, what other musical artists could maybe be billionaires someday, why Ronnie Radke is a moron, and why each of us choose to post something as news or to ignore it.

There's an interesting thread and discussion taking place in the General Forum about the idea that when there is violence in the black community hip-hop is blamed, so should pop-punk and/or metal, and the ideas they propagate, also be blamed when misogyny shows up?
The cultural make-up of, say, pop-punk contributes to the misogyny of the overall culture, in which women are objects and the man is the nice guy, who, by virtue of being the nice guy, deserves the woman in the end, Whenever there's violence in the black community, the media looks to hip-hop as something which fuels the violence. Similarly, when looking at the Isla Vist violence, is pop-punk the musical reflection of...

Rvivr are in the middle of recording a new EP:
This recording is exciting because we are taking a much different approach than on The Beauty Between. That was such a focused and intentional two-year process of writing and recording. Basically it took forever and lots and lots of hours. For this EP, we purposefully gave ourselves about a month to write and record. The whole thing will be a much quicker, spontaneous process. Practice is going well, we have 3 songs done so far.

Following in the footsteps of that 3D-printed record we saw earlier this year, Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke will collaborate with vocalist Bobbie Gordon to record a single for charity that will be "pressed" onto 3D-printed records. This will happen at a pop-up shop in London this December. Check out more info here.
It hasn’t taken long, but here we are, staring down the barrel of the first ever commercially released 3D printed record. Earlier this year researcher Amanda Ghassaei sent a series of (somewhat distorted) shockwaves around the music industry when she posted instructions and prototypes of the first ever 3D printed record onto the open source blog Instructables.
