Buzzfeed has a "33 Newer Pop Punk And Emo Albums You Definitely Need To Check Out" list up that's almost as viral in my network as the hard hitting question of "should fanny packs come back?" that landed with a thud yesterday. There's some good stuff on here, there's some really bad stuff on here, and no one should check out Jarrod Alonge.

Our buddy Jordan Buckley of Every Time I Die, our favorite iPhone kicking guitarist, made a return to the Adventures In Design podcast. This time, he talked about being the official artist for Warped Tour 2016, making each piece of art better than the last, the secrets of Ozzfest, and more. It's really a great conversation. You can check it out here.

If you're looking for a great metal record, iTunes is offering Miss May I's latest record Deathless for only $5.99. I suggest picking it up and then watching them kick ass on Parkway Drive's current U.S. headliner - that is, if your city isn't already sold out.

You may remember that last week we posted about MIGHTY releasing their first song, "Fingertip." Well today we're lucky enough to bring you another new song called "Other Kids" which is the third track off of their upcoming EP, Bye, Have Nice!, which drops this friday via songintheair. It's worth noting that the release had the help of members of Grouplove, All Get Out, o'Brother and Big Jesus. Head to the replies to give the track a listen and let us know what you think. Then after you've done all that go pre-order the EP and receive a digital download of the whole release on demand

The International Business Times is reporting that an email Tony Brummel sent to staff indicates that Victory Records will have to lay off staff if they're not paid by Spotify.
Nearly two weeks after Spotify pulled all of his artists’ and songwriters’ music off its service, Victory Records founder Tony Brummel says that unless his label’s catalog is placed back on Spotify soon, he will be forced to begin laying off staff and dropping artists. “They are over 70 percent of our monthly digital sales,” Brummel wrote in an email circulated to undisclosed recipients Friday. “Sorry to curse but in a few months -- I am f---ed.”

Adele's first major profile for the new album is with Rolling Stone.
You know what I found so amazing about that record? That’s the record Madonna wrote after having her first child, and for me, it’s her best. I was so all over the place after having a child, just because my chemicals were just hitting the fucking roof and shit like that. […] I was just drifting away, and I couldn’t find that many examples for myself where I was like, ‘Fuck, they truly came back to themselves,’ until someone was like, ‘Well, obviously, Ray of Light.’

Geoff Rickly has given an update on Collect Records, capitalism, and second thoughts about cutting ties with Martin "the controversy was a good way to get girls" Shkreli.
Interesting interview between @imstilljosh and my old investor in @collectrecords — makes me wonder if we jumped too soon in cutting ties. I think Capitalism as a whole can be pretty gruesome and Pharma especially. I am starting to wonder where all the patients that have been denied access to Daraprim are. And–obviously– my first duty is to my bands and artists. To make them feel comfortable about being on an ethically responsible label. xx

FiveThirtyEight breaks down a new study that looks at if streaming is cannibalizing or boosting music sales:
They set out to determine, in their words, “not only whether streaming displaces sales but, if so, at what rate.” To do so they measured the growth of Spotify streaming and the sales of digital music in 21 countries for an eight month period in 2013, and on all music sales (including physical ones) in the U.S. from April 2013 through March 2015. What they found corroborated Swift’s claim, at least in part: more streaming led to fewer digital track sales. Specifically, they estimate that for every 137 streams there was one fewer sale.

Anthony Raneri of Bayside has posted a message on Facebook in memory of John 'Beatz' Holohan, who passed away ten-years ago.
Me and the rest of the band have not spoken about John Beatz publicly very often in the last 10 years. We wrote and recorded Winter within weeks of his passing and have never played it again, despite being requested everyday. Most interviewers are prepped by our publicist to not bring it up. I thought I knew why. Why we didn’t want to talk about it. Why we didn’t want to bring it up. Why we just politely smile and nod when people talk about him to us. I guessed that it was just too hard to keep drudging up the pain and that it was easier to keep it buried. But...
