This week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast looks at the recent Apple event and the surprise release of U2's new album. Kind of weird that just a few years ago the industry was against free music and now it's a race to almost see who can do it 'best.' We talk a little about the announced devices and the demise of the iPod Classic. Then we dive into discussing Fall Out Boy's latest single, the new New Found Glory tracks, Yellowcard's new songs and if we should judge albums based on just a couple of songs or not, and then finish it off with a lot of praise for Have Mercy. The episode can be streamed and/or downloaded below.

Float Fest was headlined by indie pop gods Grouplove, Houston legend Bun B, and the ever dreamy Portugal. The Man, and included numerous local support acts.
The small crowd ate up their opening song that consisted entirely of screaming the word WHISKEY over and over. I even got to watch a girl vomit from her constant jumping. The band itself is nothing but...

Itís with a heavy heart that we must announce that weíre pulling off theOfficialFinch/Maps & Atlases tour. For us itís a double-edged sword because the only way we could have possibly been kept from this tour is health and unfortunately thatís still the issue we face. Brian has been in and out of facilities since we returned in early August and unfortunately the symptoms he encountered back on tour continue to plague him. Weíd like to extend a huge apology to Finch, Maps & Atlases, all the fans and promoters, and anyone else affected by our cancellation. We believe more that anyone that the show must go on, but we simply cannot tour...
