can’t even tell you how great this feels to be announcing the Pre-Order of this new full length album! I locked myself away for longer than ever to put my absolute everything into writing and recording an endless amount of new music that would push me further creatively than any of my previous albums. The result is an album that has it’s own special, unique sound that I couldn’t be more excited about and am so ready to share with you. I feel this is a new special chapter for TRS and I can’t wait to experience this with you guys. I’ve missed you all terribly while in the laboratory!
Vanna's cover of "Self Esteem" by The Offspring (apparently a very non-important and non-influential band) can be found in the replies. As this post is in relation to Pure Noise Records, I'd like to direct your attention to this post where there's a lot of great information about consent education, sexual assault literature, and much more.
The message I should’ve gotten across was, ‘You can dress however you want and I’m not going to treat you any differently.’ Jesus loves you anyway. But I guess I come at it from a different perspective because I’ve been married for nine years now, and I look at my wife and how special she is to me and our intimate relationship and how specific that is to us, so when you think of people offering that part of themselves up to the world before they have a chance to offer it up to one person...

Manchester Orchestra have sent out a long update about everything from new songs, music scores, side projects, marriages, a short tour with Brand New and Kevin Devine and everything in between. Head to the replies for the whole thing.
As far as Manchester Orchestra goes, this year has been full of unexpected turns. As a unit, we have written three songs. Not sure we like any of them yet. We will see.
MUTEMATH are set to release their fourth album, Vitals, later this fall and lead singer Paul Meany was kind enough to talk about the record with us here. The band kicks off their headlining tour tonight with a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and a show in Los Angeles.
This record was really trying to find a way to look at all the songs we’ve written, all the records we have done, and find a way to internally pay homage to all of that. We’re acknowledging all of it and embracing it, and then finding a way to push it forward for ourselves. This record as a whole is probably more connected to some of our earlier work. It was important for us to find that new space of acreage that you can...
Playing a little bit of catch up here, but Future shares videos for so many tracks that it can be hard to keep up. Most recently, he's shared videos for the Drake-assisted "Where Ya At," which features some of the most inspirational dance moves of the year, "Blood On The Money," and even bonus track "Kno The Meaning." All three come from the incredible Dirty Sprite 2, and word has it that a video for "Rich $ex" is on it's way soon. In the meantime, check out the great videos in the replies.
Chromatics are the latest band to contribute to Adult Swim's 2015 Single Series, premiering a new song titled "Shadow." The song is set to appear in extended form on the band's forthcoming double-album Dear Tommy, which was set to arrive by Valentine's Day 2015 and has yet to receive a new release day. Stream the single in the replies.
Stephen Colbert's tenure as the host of The Late Show is only two episodes old, and last night Kendrick Lamar stopped by to perform a four song medley of To Pimp A Butterfly tracks. You can watch the clip of "Wesley's Theory," "Momma," "King Kunta," and "u"here. The performance is a sequel of sorts to Kendrick's appearance as the last-ever musical guest on The Colbert Report last year.
Today, we're bringing you an exclusive music video premiere from an up and coming metal band, Jynx, for their song "Homewrecker".

"I think a lot of people are trying to accept themselves and come to terms with it because it's still a pretty big thing right now. I never had someone to look up to and be like 'oh that person is OK and they're gay.’ If I can be that for someone then it's why I'm open about it.”
So, why did I want to leave a band that was on the brink of success (maybe)? I hated myself and I wasn’t confident enough to deal with low show turn outs and internal band politics. I was increasingly jealous of our friends who were doing well and I couldn’t stand it. I used being in (bad) relationships as my excuse to move and just disappear and I regretted it almost immediately.
The hospital had filed suit Friday to halt the popular event because of concerns that the "extreme noise" and congestion surrounding the music festival would compromise patient safety. In response, event organizers claimed the hospital had threatened to sue unless it was paid $158,000, prompting the hospital's chief spokeswoman to call the organizers liars.
