Read an article on Somos called "As emo revives, Somos revamps" on The Boston Globe.
“I think we were just lucky with the timing,” Haggerty explained of their being lumped into the emo resurgence. “Right around the time we started the band that all happened. We’re not haters of the emo revival, it means there are a lot more kids coming to shows. But I think we’re more of a crossover band, I don’t think we’re a typical emo band. We take pride in having a pop punk-emo-indie crossover. I like the idea of moving forward and creating something new. I like to think that’s where we’re at.”

Read my review and check out my photos of the sold out Worcester, MA stop of The Wonder Years's The Greatest Generation World Tour with Fireworks, Citizen, Real Friends, and Modern Baseball.
The Greatest Generation World Tour is yet another testament to why The Wonder Years are the gold standard for the genre. Between their honest songs, their tight stage presence, their rabid fanbase and even the bands they surround themselves with, The Wonder Years have set the bar impossibly high for any other band hoping to take the pop-punk throne.

Today's edition of AbsolutePlaylist is brought to you by me, so it's not like any of the other ones since I am a deviant. Currently I date a girl who I went to high school with, but she didn't like me in high school despite some of the best-curated mix CDs ever given to anyone on the planet. I had seen the movie High Fidelity and she hadn't, so how is it possible that this best-laid plan didn't work? Today we investigate this further with a playlist of songs that I actually put on mix CDs for a girl that I liked in high school, complete with commentary. It's in the replies, of course.

Well, if you're not busy discussing if Record Store Day has been ruined, there are some cool releases coming out. Plus, I say getting outside to visit your local record store with some friends is as good an excuse as any (vinyl and beer is the secret to long living). We've created this open thread to discuss all the releases for this year. We'll keep it open throughout the weekend to post about what you've found and picked up and/or share any other deals that show up. Check the first post for some thoughts from staff on what they're looking to grab this year.

Four major labels are teaming up with the RIAA to file a lawsuit against Pandora for playing pre-Feb. 15, 1972 recordings without making any royalty payments.
According to the just-filed lawsuit, the Copyright Act that created the master recording copyright "expressly preserves for pre-72 recordings 'any rights or remedies under the common law or statutes of any states' -- which rights and remedies are not in any way annulled or limited." The lawsuit further states that the New York courts have done so by recognizing and enforcing exclusive ownership rights in pre-1972 recordings. “For more than 100 years, the courts repeatedly have affirmed the policy of this [New York] State that the...

Check out a video interview with Davey Havok talking about the last AFI album over at Fuse.
At the time of the creation of our record Burials, those themes and emotions were very present in my life, unfortunately. Before going on stage, it’s more of a calm and a focus. A lot of those emotions are what we’re creating on stage. Though it may be a bleak sentiment, the unification of people expressing that catharsis has a positive result at times.”

La Dispute posted a statement about the departure of guitarist Kevin Whittemore.
For those of you not present at either our Grand Rapids or our Cleveland show this past Sunday and Monday respectively (excepting of course close friends not in attendance who were privy to this information prior to the commencement of tour), Kevin has, after roughly ten years of standing to my left and playing guitar in La Dispute, decided to move on to pursue other endeavors. Unsurprisingly, he’s stepping only sideways in his passion, opting instead to pursue the building of beautiful guitars rather than to play guitar beautifully as a profession, enrolling in a luthiery school here in our home...

The Quietus has a great piece up about the negative effects that the 2014 Record Store Day has been having on the industry it's designed to help. The essay is filled with comments and quotes from small labels about the effects RSD has had on their schedules, releases, and a number of other problems. Who's to blame? In the minds of some, it's the major labels elbowing their way onto the scene and saying "What can we shit into the form of a record and shove into the hands of the wanton masses?" If you're planning on hitting the shops this year, does this change any of your purchasing plans?

We've had Biffy Clyro, Twin Atlantic and The Xcerts, now here's another Scottish rock band who look destined for great things.

Scroll down to check out the very slightly NSFW video for new track "I Like Not Knowing".

A couple Wu-Tang Clan fans have started a Kickstarter to raise five million dollars and try and buy the "one of a kind" album and release it for free.
The risk is some Saudi oil baron's kid spending his dad's money to collect a trophy and then he'll keep the album to himself and fans the world over will suffer.
