In the following Thread, the two friends swap stories about how much they love (and fret about) their respective hometowns, the daily routines of rock musicians, and the perils of pissing off their fans.

I figured everyone should know that if you at one point had "liked" The Dangerous Summer on Facebook ... you now actually "like" Floodlove.

Rick Rubin has created a profile on Genius.com and annotated quite a few songs.
Something that I learned through the process is that when artists have done it for a long time, a certain pattern takes over their lives. They’re on the road, and then there’s a window where they can make a record. It’s just a function of the schedule. The album is what happens between those two weeks of touring: that’s your record. Not a lot of care goes into it.

My job is often just breaking that pattern. We’re going to take as long as it takes, like it’s the most important thing in the world, and make the best record of your life. When I said that to Johnny, he looked at me like I was insane. It was...

Jade Puget recently talked with the OC Register and said a new AFI album is in the works.
Though they’re not entirely sure whether XTRMST is a one-off or another side project they’ll keep around, Puget said that he and Havok are nearly finished with their third Blaqk Audio record and that a tenth studio album, from AFI is next on the list. However, if XTRMST decides to kick back up again, Puget said he’s definitely not short on ideas.

Darren King, drummer for Mute Math, has posted a collection of royalty free drum samples for purchase on That Sound.
This enormous drum library captures the untamed style of Darren King in great detail. These signature sounds are dirty and messy in the best of ways. Darren’s favorite drums from your favorite records recorded with vintage gear and tape machines. Darren’s drums are overtly processed and pushed hard through API pre amps, various compressors, and Studer and Teac tape heads.

We recorded 7 Kicks, 9 Snares, 2 sets of toms, Hi-hat, Ride, and 2 Crashes all in great detailed multi-velocity. We couple those multi-velocity samples with hundreds of unique “one-shot” samples.

Gerard Way and Geoff Rickly talk with Noisey about an oral history of emo.
I remember all that. Even the mic swinging thing—like one day, Geoff just started swinging his mic and then everybody started doing it. It was ridiculous. I heard stories of Geoff walking into a show and first song in the dude would swing his mic and Geoff would walk out. Everyone was a pioneer trying to put all this shit out, so if somebody stole your shit—even black nail polish—you’d get fucking pissed off.
