Pop-punk has been such a hard genre to define over the past few years. It's taken on many sounds, shapes, and forms but one thing is undeniable - when a band does the genre justice, nothing else matters but the music. Today we're extremely excited to premiere the song "Progression Regression" from New England's Traditions. My initial take was the music of Real Friends meets the vocals of Valencia. The track comes from the band's upcoming EP Cycles out on March 11th. Listen to the track in the replies and it is available for pre-order.

Swedish metal legends At the Gates have reunited. They'll release At War With Reality, their first album in 18 years, in the fall on Century Media Records.
So, here we are almost 24 years since the birth of AT THE GATES, and some 18+ years since our latest album 'Slaughter Of The Soul'. A lot of years have passed and we have embarked on some life-changing reunion tours and shows the last couple of years.
So, why make a new album you might ask, and why now? Well, what we learned from the last couple of years hanging out and playing shows together, is that we enjoy what we do to the fullest extent. We love playing music together, and we love to hang out as friends. But, as a musician, we...

So, our shit crashed on black ice. Everyone is ok, gear is ok, but van is janky and shitted on. Weíre considering all options for the next few days. Van rental for a week? Rideshare to the next three shows until we get our van back? Bullet train? Living in Seattle?

Macklemore sent a text to Kendrick Lamar apologizing for winning best rap album at the Grammys last night.
My text to Kendrick after the show. He deserved best rap albumÖ Iím honored and completely blown away to win anything much less 4 Grammys. But in that category, he should have won IMO. And thatís taking nothing away from The Heist. Just giving GKMC itís proper respect.. With that being said, thank you to the fans. Youíre the reason we were on that stage tonight. And to play Same Love on that platform was a career highlight. The greatest honor of all. Thatís what this is about. Progress and art. Thank you. #grammys
