Well Kept Things will release their debut EP, Homegrown, tomorrow via Antique Records. We are streaming the whole thing a day early, which you can hear below. The EP definitely reminds me a lot of Just Surrender, namely the vocals on tracks like "Younger" and "Great White North." Fans of pop-punk should enjoy this upcoming band, as Homegrown screams summer. If you're liking what you hear, you can pre-order the EP. Well Kept Things will also be doing a quick tour - you can find those dates in the replies, as well.

I recently reviewed Thank You, Goodnight, the debut novel from Andy Abramowitz. I would recommend it for anyone who likes going to the reunions of their favorite bands from the 90s.
But perhaps most interestingly, Thank You, Goodnight is a book which does a phenomenal job of capturing the spirit of making or listening to, falling in love with, and devoting your life to, music. “There were some of us who never had a choice,” says Teddy, who acts as the novel’s narrator, at one point in the novel. “Whether graced with talent or not, we were going to spend our lives in this often turbulent but always embracing sea. If we can make music, we make it and there’s no hope of turning off the...

Nerve Clinic's Fail Better was recorded back in 2012, but it was put on the back burner when frontman Chase Griffis' focus shifted to his other band, Heartless Breakers. The album will finally see the light of day on July 17th via Take This to Heart Records. You can stream one of its tracks, "Slacktivism," in the replies. Revisiting the effort provides an interesting look at an early 20-something musician finding his footing. Blending the old with the new, the Utah group is recommended for fans of Fireworks, Hot Rod Circuit and The Juliana Theory.

Update: The next two shows (PinkPop and St. Gallen) have been cancelled.

Foo Fighters are currently in the middle of their European tour which includes headlining Glastonbury, but last night at the show in Gothenburg, Sweden Dave Grohl fell off the stage and broke his leg only two songs into the set. Rather than cancelling the show, Grohl was taken to get it checked out whilst the band played a few songs without him. He then returned to the stage where medics fixed a cast to his leg as he continued playing and singing from a chair on stage for the rest of the two hour long show. No future shows are considered to be cancelled. Hit the replies for some pictures.

Note from ShanaI honestly can't even remember when I first started visiting AP.net, all I know is this where I always went for my music news and to lurk to see what everyone's opinions were. Safe to say because of that I am absolutely ecstatic that I'm able to be a contributing interviewer/writer for Absolute Punk.

Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! writes for Noisey about transphobic violence within the punk community.
Just as the tour was ending, I heard about a truly awful situation Stephanie said she encountered at one of her own shows just days after I had seen her. I was left feeling disheartened and realizing just how small of an impact this perceived tipping point of trans visibility has had on the world and on the average trans persons everyday experience and that there is still so much work to do before real progress can be equated.

I asked Stephanie if she’d have a conversation about what happened and she agreed

Nate Ruess has done a track by track commentary of Grand Romantic with Rolling Stone.
We had finished the album, and we decided that we didn't need any interludes. It felt pretentious to do, and it already felt like adding too many tracks. I like to keep albums usually at 10 [songs], and we ended up with 12. Interludes would've brought it up to 14, and it would've felt a little too conceptual. We finished the album without the intro, and "AhHa" didn't feel like it set up the album properly. It was the very last day before we had to turn in the master, and we were up until 5 o'clock in the morning recording in my house and rearranging that intro. It was supposed to be turned in three...
