The horribly named Holy Pinto! filled out our random interview, read it here.
Final year of college and frustrated with life and how we weren't doing music at the time. I spent about two years trying to convince Ryan to start a band with me. I don't think I ever played him any songs or anything I had written though, so it was a very counterproductive persuasion. Eventually happened, I guess!
You can hear a new Turnover song called "I Would Hate You If I Could," on Alt Press. The song comes from an upcoming 4-way split featuring Such Gold, Maker and Ivy League, TX, which is released through Broken Rim Records on March 4th.
Exactly. That’s a perfect way to put it. All the while, we were still talking to Anthony off and on, but not as seriously. It wasn’t a, “Hey, I’ll rejoin the band” type thing. It was, “Why don’t I just sing on a couple of songs.” One of the Tilian songs got leaked somehow. We got hit up by Anthony because he thought we were going to do some stuff. We were all like, “Well, we weren’t planning on working with Tilian, but it just happened.” So, needless to say, we kind of split things off with Tilian, but we didn’t do it in a good way. The relationship kind of dissolved more passively than we hoped. We didn’t...

During a show in New Jersey, Kanye West talked about a few different topics -- including offering support for Drake in lieu of the recent Rolling Stone situation. The full video is in the replies.
Let me tell you what it is about magazines: they always be trying to pit ****** against each other. That ain’t going down anymore. We love Drake. If anything, we are going to go after those motherfuckers and their negativity, because before they print shit like that, they need to check with me and him to see if it’s OK before they get ran up in their motherfuckin office.
The meal will be served at a pop up restaurant for one night only, while Kid A plays for the diners. Dubbed "A Night With Kid A," the menu (posted on a Facebook page for the event) begins with a "pan-seared diver scallop with yuzu fluid gel, fried cellophane noodle, lemongrass ponzu and chili oil" paired with opening track "Everything In Its Right Place." Moving on to the album's title track, Hanley offers a "Black Caprese," and moves through delectables including lamb chops with crispy pig ear, monkfish, duck breast and arugula salad before closing with a "mousse duo with blackberry pate de fruit" set to "Motion Picture...

We are very happy to announce that we are finally doing a DVD for The Future Sequence. In this age we live in you can watch us play any of our songs live online. So we wanted to give our fans something a little different… an intimate live performance of us playing in a studio. It will be a wonderful experience and I hope you all enjoy it as much as we enjoy playing these songs.
Chiodos have always had an affinity for the bizarre and what goes bump in the night (after all, the band is named for the trio of brothers who directed the cult film Killer Klowns from Outer Space), so it couldn't come as a surprise that the band's new video for "Why The Munsters Matter" is full of old black-and-white horror movie clips. The song is classic Chiodos - as it contains a Bone Palace Ballet feel while maintaining the band's rejuvenated energy and chaos (as seen on last summer's Warped Tour). Today, we are proud to premiere the band's new video along with the reveal of "The Devil Dance Tour 2014." The band's upcoming album, DEVIL, hits retailers on April 1st, but if you...

It will be self-released by the band tomorrow on bandcamp - for free!
Today we're bringing you a brand new song from Distances and an interview with the group's guitarist Florian Maier. Listen to "Heavier Than You Know" in the replies and let us know what you think. This Winnipeg based punk band formed in 2012 and headed to Vancouver last summer to work at Rain City Recorders with ex-Daggermouth guitarist Stu McKillop. Now the group is digitally releasing an EP called Boulders through Gold Stock Records tomorrow and its debut full-length Peaks/Valleys is due out sometime this summer. If you're into Polar Bear Club this is definitely a band you might want to check out.
Idlehands is going to be one of those bands you're going to want to know about right now. The San Diego rock act is starting to make a splash on the national scene and it'll be a damn shame if you catch the group on their upcoming tour with Being As An Ocean, A Lot Like Birds, and My Iron Lung and not know the band's material. Listen to the track "Mellow Christ" in the replies which comes from the split with Ghost Parade. The track features GP's vocalist Justin Bonifacio and the split is available for pre-order.
