The (always great) Song Exploder podcast has a new episode with American Football.
In this episode, Mike Kinsella, Steve Holmes, and Steve Lamos of American Football break down the first song they wrote together, “The One with the Tambourine,” from their self-titled EP. They talk about being influenced by the Chicago music scene of the ‘90s, and how they combined alternative tunings, unconventional time signatures, and naiveté to craft their sound.

Ahead of tomorrow's release date for No Closer To Heaven, The Wonder Years have released a new song titled "Thanks For The Ride," which you can stream in the replies. (via Spin). Singer Dan "Soupy" Campbell also gave an interview, which you can read here.
I was at this turning point with the [new] record where I was like, “I don’t want to write about the suburban American experience anymore, because I’ve written about it a hundred times.” I was thinking about other things in life that I wanted to touch on. It started to feel like I was in a footrace with an expanding universe, and I was never going to get to the finish line.

Tom DeLonge continues his media tour. This time talking with NME:
I loved that band, I started that band. That's me. I named the band - that shit came from me. [Being in Blink] cannot be the only thing in my life, or can it be the absolute priority. But can it be a part of my life? Absolutely. I love that band.

This week's a special episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast. We offer to you two topics: A discussion about Thomas's decision to retire from the website and a lengthy discussion about The Wonder Years' new album No Closer to Heaven. Not only was it a marathon podcasting session, but I think the result was one of our best episodes. We tried to really get into the details of looking at the reactions to an album from a die-hard Wonder Years' fan and someone who is pretty indifferent to the band's catalog. Someone that thinks the band is elevating themselves to rarified air in the music scene and pop-punk, and someone that's not convinced they're in that conversation yet. It's like the Odd...

This one of my favorite premieres I've been a part of. The San Francisco, CA, band ourfathers. will be releasing an EP called Movements soon, and we're streaming the first single in the replies. Now, ourfathers. are quite the dynamic group, with "III" pulling influences from all sorts of bands, with hints of Brand New, Moving Mountains, Pianos Become the Teeth, Thrice, From Indian Lakes, and everything in between - it's like the band mixed a bunch of this site's favorite artists and threw them together into one massive song, all produced by Dryw Owens of the latter group. The point is that you should listen to it, which is good, because it's sitting right there in the replies for you to...

Jordan Walsh, writing for Safer Scene:
But Warped Tour 2015 finished its run nearly a month ago. Why are we still talking about it? The fact of the matter is that Warped Tour has significance in the alternative rock scene. For the past two decades, the traveling festival has provided a way for fans to catch a sizable portion of the subculture’s most popular acts in one chaotic swoop. While a visit to a single stop will reveal a diverse group of people, the significance of the tour is perhaps most weighty for the youngest of its attendees.

For these fans, this event is a cultural epicenter: a place where a community normally accessed via the Internet suddenly takes tangible form. It’s...

Underoath are on the latest episode of the Bad Christian podcast. Aaron touches on leaving the band the first time:
It was a really knee-jerk reaction for me. I guess I’ve never really given a correct answer [to why I left], but the truth is that I was just mentally stupid. When I go back and think about it [now], it’s just so strange.
