Producer/engineer Kurt Ballou has posted some photos on Facebook of High On Fire recently recording with him at GodCity. I'm assuming this means we'll be getting new music from the band this year.

How many times has Kanye tried to give away his awards to artists he felt deserved them more? Fader has collected video of Yeezy doing that here, plus an added bonus where he talks about how he doesn't keep any of them.

Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low was one of many who found it odd that Chris Brown was in the audience at the Grammys last night ... especially after President Obama's video in support of the "It's On Us" campaign aired. Chris Brown then responded to Alex on Twitter in a since deleted message.

We recently talked about Cartel's upcoming Chroma 10 year tour and vinyl release on our podcast and how influential that album was in shaping tastes and the whole "pop-punk sound" for a few years. Ten years ago we were the website that first streamed the album for everyone to hear -- so it's with a lot of pride (and an impending sense of my own age) that we present a special acoustic version of "If I Fail" with you today. The band recorded these sessions with Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount (the team behind Chroma), and we have a whole bunch of these to release over the next few weeks. Hit the replies for the song all the information about the band's upcoming tour.

Kanye West's countdown was all about his new Adidas boot.
Additional details include that the sneaker is rumored to retail for $350, and only 3000 pairs will be made available for purchase. Yeezy season isn't just approaching, it's official here.

Cory from Norma Jean's daughter was in a severe car accident. Their family has set up a GoFundMe page for donations.
Our insurance should cover a good amount, but simply being in an ICU room for almost a week is going to be a hefty charge, let alone the surgery, care and having to be flown on a fixed wing plane etc. For those that were asking how to help in that dept, we're looking into creative ways to help financially. (Raffling off something cool or something like that.)

Trapt took to Facebook after Paramore won a Grammy last night. Gotta say, posting a rant on Facebook sure does seem "anti-establishment" to me.
The fact that Paramore won an award for Best Rock Song and Beck won for Best Rock Album shows you that there's gotta be a conspiracy going around to destroy the essence of what rock music is all about. The establishment doesn't want anything too threatening or in your face to rile you up, they just want you to nod to adult pop punk;) or indie folk electronica and think it's "rock."

Bullet for My Valentine have parted ways with bassist Jay James.
It is with regret that Bullet For My Valentine has to announce that Jay James is no longer a member of the band. Jay has been a part of this band for well over 12 years and part of our lives forever, and we’re gonna miss him as much as we know you guys are too. We wanna wish him all the best and success with whatever he chooses to do next and will always be grateful for his contribution and sacrifices he made for this band.

We’ll announce a r…eplacement for Jay when we feel the time is right, but until then we’re gonna be busy and focused recording our next record and making sure its the best album we’ve ever made.

I recently caught up with Justice Tripp of Angel Du$t, in which I learned that the band will be hopping in the studio with producer Will Yip in July. Oh yeah, did I mention that Trapped Under Ice will be making their return this year? They'll be recording as well. Get excited. You can read the interview here.
