Modern Baseball have canceled their upcoming performance at Reading and Leeds and their Australian tour.
I just wanted to thank everyone for being so understanding and supportive during this time. It is with much difficulty to announce that we unfortunately have canceled our upcoming plans of playing Reading and Leeds as well as our upcoming Australian tour with Iron Chic.

I've spent most of my life struggling with anxiety and depression, and after the last few months it's evident that it's time to put everything else aside to focus on making steps towards positive mental health. Like I said before, thank you to everyone who has been so understanding through all of this, the...

I cannot believe this isn't a national holiday! Why are we at work?! Bruce Springsteen's legendary and influential breakthrough album, Born To Run, was released 40 years ago today. Our own Craig Manning wrote a neat 40-year retrospective about the perfect record (and I did my own retro review years ago, which isn't as good as Craig's, in a series where I reviewed all 16 of Springsteen's records at the time), and The Atlantic also has a long feature about the album. Please join me in celebrating this holy day in the replies. Additionally, if you've never listened to this album, I very highly encourage you to listen to the thing in its entirety today. "Thunder Road" is the best song of all...

"After working on six Yellowcard albums, I can honestly say that Ryan Key is a true talent," said Avron (producer and mixer of Linkin Park, Weezer, Aerosmith, Fall Out Boy, Yellowcard). "I have watched Ryan successfully hone his techniques as a songwriter and now producer. Armed with these skills, Ryan truly has an innate sense for what a song needs."

While Anthony and Staci have already given you their great photos from the Pinelands Music Festival, we thought we shouldn't just stop there. So over the next few days, we'll be bringing you some interviews from some of the best bands on the Pinelands lineup. First up, we have Philadelphia's PALMAS, who gave me one of the funniest interviews I've ever done. You can read the whole thing here.
We were putting out the EP, and we were playing at the Boot and Saddle, and itís now October 10th, our EP release show. But it was originally scheduled for Pope Weekend. And actually, one of your contributors, Staci, she sent me a text and said, ďI think you need to reschedule your show.Ē

Trevor Reilly of A Wilhelm Scream sat down with GearMetropolis to talk gear.
I have an 85 Gibson Les Paul Custom and a 78 ďthe PaulĒ. Theyíre both so a part of me that I couldnít imagine playing anything else at this point, after fifteen years. Something about a Les Paul, I love the raw sound, I love the weight, it just feels right. Itís the sound of rock and roll. Iíd love to be able to leave them home when I go on tour, but I need to play a Gibson and Iím not sure I could afford a new custom. Anybody over at Gibson reading this? Wanna hook a dude up? Hahaha. For recording, Iíve only used les pauls. Either mine, my dadís, or Stephen Egertonís once while recording our second album,...

Recently, I was able to speak with Tim Kasher and Stefanie Drootin of The Good Life about the band's first album in eight years, Everybody's Coming Down. Check it out here.
I mean, itís what weíre all listening to now, and we joked around about it being our Weezer or our Built to Spill record. [Laughs] I think the Good Life used to feel like an entity that had to stand in contrast to Cursive, but now that weíre less active, The Good Life feels like it has more leeway to play rock music.

We had the chance to speak with John Nolan about his new solo album, Sad Strange Beautiful Dream. Check it out here.
This album was ridiculously autobiographical. Iíve never written so many songs that were so directly about an exact experience that I had. That was something that happened (on this album). Generally, I think my songs are about myself. I think Iím limited in that way. I donít feel like I, so far anyway, have been able to put myself in a character's head or another personís head and been able to write from their perspective. I havenít felt like Iíve been good at that. So most of my songs end up being about me in some way or another.

There's lots of good newer punk bands making music in Winnipeg right now and one of the best ones is Elder Abuse. This goofy quintet just released a record called Born to Lose last year and today we're premiering a brand new song from an upcoming split 7" that they''ll be releasing with a Californian punk band called Anchorless. If you love gruff punk in the vein of Dillinger Four and Hot Water Music these guys should be worth your time. And since I know there's still some Daggermouth fans on this site I think it's worth mentioning Dan Don is currently drumming for this band. Listen to "Bye House" in the replies, let us know what you think and if you dig it pre-orders are now...

We also ask that you please refrain from attacking the people making these statements via social media - we do not want anyone to feel victimised in any way.

Jason Gleason, formerly of Further Seems Forever, talked with Breathecast.
Gleason likens his time with Further Seems Forever as a marriage that came to an end. The business side of things brought upon most of the bad blood in the band, "It stopped being fun, and started being a business, and whatever emotions and conflicts that come along with that statement, it was my time to go. I think Jon Bunch stepped in and did a bang up job."
