A documentary about Agnostic Front, titled The Godfathers of Hardcore, is up for funding on Kickstarter.
Film and Music Video Director Ian McFarland (Rungs in a Ladder: Jacob Bannon, The Outlaw: Dan Hardy, The Problem Solver:Joe Lauzon, Meshuggah, Killswitch Engage, Fear Factory, Agnostic Front) is crafting an intimate portrait of the two industry leaders, two of the most respected individuals in the 35-year history of hardcore punk music. In addition to inspiring and nurturing multiple generations of bands that followed their lead, Miret and Stigma have remained close friends through great adversity that sometimes threatened their very existence.

Thom Fekete of Surfer Blood has incredibly rare cancer. You can donate here.
In a statement on his GoFundMe page, Fekete says his cancer is so rare that there is little research on it, and the alternative treatment plan his team of doctors is recommending as a complement to chemotherapy is only partially covered by insurance.

Lauren from Chvrches got another rape threat (the beyond messed up threat is included in the tweet, just fyi).
My band is lucky enough to have some of the most awesome, supportive and respectful fans in the world and we are so excited to be in the studio making an album to share with them. Yet, on a daily basis, we still receive communications like this. These people never learn that violence against women is unacceptable. But they also never learn that women will not be shamed and silenced and made to disappear. I am not going anywhere. So bring it on, motherfuckers. Let's see who blinks first.

I recently talked with the fine folks over at Bridge the Atlantic for a few minutes about AP.net, the music industry, blogging online, and some other things. The video is a little choppy and out of sync but you can check it out over here.
Our guest this week is Jason Tate – writer, music enthusiast, podcaster and founder of Absolute Punk. Amidst some technical issues, we spoke with Jason about his Absolute Punk journey, the advice he’d offer to bands who want their music heard by bloggers, and what happens when the internet meets real life…
