On last week's episode of the AP.net Podcast, Drew and I talked a lot about writing online, the future of album reviews, and stuff like that. I also hinted at the idea of bringing on more staff contributors here at the website and spent the weekend bouncing around a bunch of ideas with all the current staff members. Well, we decided it's time to expand. We think we've got news posting down pretty well (although all staff can post news), so we're looking mostly for those interested in writing album reviews and doing interviews with bands, record labels, and other industry folk. If this sort of thing seems up your alley, we've got a little application form you can fill out here. We just...

Frank Turner will begin tracking his new album next month.
Secondly, after some behind-the-scenes confusion and plan-changing, we are finally about to hit the studio at the start of next month to make the sixth record. Details about where, when and with who I’m still keeping close to my chest, but it’s great that it’s finally getting under way. To prepare for the session, and to honour the passing of (yet another) Great British Music Venue, the Sleeping Souls and I will be playing two intimate shows at the Hereford Jailhouse on 27th & 28th November. The first night is sold out already, so get your tickets quick!

Read an interview with Joseph Marro of The Early November discussing new TEN material sounding like The Devil & God, how to survive as a young band in the scene, and managing artists like You Blew It! and Allison Weiss.
Yeah, I think this new record, if what we’ve done goes all the way through, will be our darkest record – a little less like “In Currents,” and even further away from that rock sound of “Frayed in Doubt,” but more…to compare it to another band, I think it almost sounds like [Brand New’s] The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me, which is cool because it’s not even an album we’ve listened to as a band, but it’s one we’re all familiar with. I just hear parts of these songs...

In a recent radio interview, Tom Delonge stated that Blink 182 have found a new partner to release their upcoming album.
We've been searching vigorously for a partner of how we're going to put that out. I literally think I got the last email last night, as far as signing this paperwork to say, "Okay, this is our partner." So, I can't announce anything yet, but next is all the scheduling of when and how, where and with whom we do it. So I think the goal is right after the holidays, we're going to be going pretty hardcore

Ryan Ross' manager started shooting off tweets the other night that led to the hashtag "#RyanAndBrendonOneMoreSong" trending in the US. Ryan Ross responded with a tweet saying he's "not against it." Guess we wait and see what Brendon thinks.

Dropkick Murphys were involved in a fatal car crash yesterday when a pedestrian ran out in front of the band's vehicle in what is believed to be a suicide.
Hello Tulsa fans. We have some tough news – we have to cancel tonight’s show at Cain’s Ballroom.

After last nights San Antonio show we were enroute to the dallas airport to drop off Al and then continue on to Tulsa (as we mentioned yesterday Al is flying home for the funeral of a life long friend)

Sadly however, just north of Austin we were involved in a tragic and fatal accident when a pedestrian suddenly ran onto the highway in front of our tour bus. Police suspect a suicide.

We were left with a driver that has been severely...

Read our write up of the 11/15 Austin stop of Four Year Strong's "Go Down in History" Tour with Transit and Such Gold.
While I’m not really into Four Year Strong or the “easy-core” genre like I was when I was 16, I still had a great time at the show. The band just knows how to write hooks, gang vocals, and bring all the energy to the stage live. I had mixed feelings about Transit’s set similar to my mixed feelings about their albums. And then Such Gold managed to have even more energy live than on their albums, a great feat for such a young band. Regardless of what era of Four Year Strong you’re into – or even if you aren’t too into them anymore – their show is highly entertaining with...
