The eighth episode of the AbsolutePunk.net Podcast is now available for your listening pleasure. In this episode, Jason and I spoke with P.O.S. It was a great conversation, as Jason and I both find Stef to be an inspiration. We discussed many things, including his latest album, We Don't Even Live Here, his journey to find a kidney match, and even Yeezus.

This week on the Self Promotion Forum, I found the excellent In Wrecks, a post-hardcore four piece hailing from Glasgow. The band have just put out the wonderfully exhilarating Creation Myths EP, five tracks of high speed, massive sounding, 90s emo tinged post hardcore, via Struggletown Records. If you're a fan of Glassjaw crossed with Sunny Day Real Estate, you'll love these guys and their new EP is 'name your price' on their Bandcamp.

The seventh episode of the AbsolutePunk.net Podcast is now available for your listening pleasure. In this episode, Jason and I spoke with Vinnie Caruana (I Am The Avalanche, Peace'd Out, and formerly The Movielife). We talked about what the band has been working on in the studio, Peace'd Out touring, as well as getting nostalgic about The Movielife.

So Jason and I have been kicking around some ideas for the AbsolutePunk Podcast and we thought we'd try out a monthly feature in which we'd try to answer any and all questions posed to us in its accompanying thread. So, have at it - post a question (or questions) you've been dying to know the answers to. We'll be back this Friday with our latest episode featuring Vinnie Caruana of I Am The Avalanche.

This week on the Self Promotion Spotlight I found the lovely Friend Skeletons, an indie tinged punk band from Providence. The band incorporate math-y twinkles, catchy melodies and a general punk vibe into their music and their distinct vocals and organic feel are highly striking. If The Gaslight Anthem and American Football combined, the product could sound a little like this. Download their new EP People on their Bandcamp as 'name your price'.

Haulix continues its blogger highlight series with a pretty in-depth interview with our CEO and founder Jason Tate. They discuss the features of the upcoming new AP.net site, AbsoluteVoices, and more. You can check it out here. An interview with yours truly will be posted in the coming weeks, so you can look forward to that as well.
Drew Beringer on 07/03/13 - 12:07 PM
Back in February, I had the chance to sit down and talk to Keith Buckley of Every Time I Die about the impending 10th anniversary of the band's beloved second album, Hot Damn!, as well as other ETID-related topics. I was planning on posting that interview around this time to coincide with the actual anniversary date. But since we started this podcast, I thought I'd just give you guys the real deal and upload the audio from that conversation and turn this into the sixth episode of the AbsolutePunk.net Podcast. It's similar in nature to the podcast Jason posted a few weeks ago with Ryan Key.

Anyways, this episode is a blast, as you can imagine. As always, you can subscribe to this...

Update: The chat is now over, thanks to the band for hanging out with us tonight - make sure you pre-order the band's upcoming album Tracing Back Roots at their official website here.

At 12 PM PST/3 PM EST, We Came As Romans will be swinging by to chat about Warped Tour and any other things you may want to know about, including their upcoming album, Tracing Back Roots.

Oh...and did I mention we'd have a preview of their brand new single, "Fade Away"?

The fifth episode of the AbsolutePunk.net Podcast is now available for your listening pleasure.

Also, Cyborg Jason makes an appearance once again.

This week on the Self Promotion Forum, I discovered the lovely Townhouses, an emo/post-hardcore four piece from Southampton, PA. Townhouses have a fresh, modern emo feel but with the occasional dalliance with 90s indie rock and post-rock. If Moving Mountains were an emo band, Townhouses would certainly be on the same footing as them. Their recent EP, Keepsakes is available on their Bandcamp as 'name your price', so there's no excuse to not check them out! Interested in being a part of the Self-Promotion Spotlight?

When we brought you "Time Erases Time (Strung Out)," people went bananas for Night Verses. By now, you should have long since purchased their great full-length, Lift Your Existence - but just in case you've deprived yourself of great music, we're streaming the entire record, for today only. This is the only place you'll find the full album stream, so savor it, then buy Lift Your Existence on iTunes or Big Cartel. After that, catch the band on tour this August with My Ticket Home and I Am King - dates in the replies.

The fourth episode of the AbsolutePunk.net Podcast is now available for your listening pleasure. In this episode, Jason and I spoke with The Swellers' Jono Diener. We talked with our resident movie reviewer about Warped Tour, the band's recent signing with No Sleep Records and upcoming album, as well what it means when you smell like soup.

With festival season well and truly in full swing across the globe now, undoubtedly one of the biggest on the planet kicks off its music across many stages this weekend. Glastonbury Festival in the UK is a long-standing and world famous event which just grows and grows every year and after taking a break in 2012, it's back with a line up full of acts that should not be missed. Head to the replies to see lists and previews of some acts both new and and more seasoned which should be checked out, including the likes of The Rolling Stones, Tom Odell, King Krule, The 1975 and Arctic Monkeys.
Kyle Huntington on 06/27/13 - 07:46 AM
You can check out our interview with Architects (UK) here. The band is currently on the Monster Energy stage, and are not to be missed, especially if you like heavy music. The band will be writing a new record in September, as well doing another U.S. tour in the fall.
"Devil's Island" was one of the hardest songs to write because it's so prominent about where we're from and the London riots that were going on at the time, and it was something that we'd like to get across in a nice way, and we were really happy about it.
Jake Denning on 06/26/13 - 05:55 AM
You can read our new interview with Big Chocolate here. He's currently on the Spotify stage on this summer's Warped Tour, and someone you definitely want to check out if you like electronic music.
I was nervous, because that was my first real breath into this kind of stuff, I really feel like I've grown a lot and changed a ton since the last two years. So I was really nervous to come back and see how the Warped crowd would take the new stuff, and now my worries are all gone.

We have a special mini-podcast going live today. Last year (actually just about exactly a year ago), Jason did a phone interview with Ryan Key of Yellowcard, but due to some unforeseen circumstances occurring practically simultaneously the interview was never transcribed and released. Now that we have this podcast, we figured this would be a really good way to release the audio from this interview. The quality isnít as good as the previous podcasts, as it wasnít recorded to ever be one ó however, Jason tried to clean it up as best he could.

Love em' or hate em', our interview with Never Shout Never can be found here. The band is currently on the Kia Soul Main Stage on this summer's Vans Warped Tour. The band's new album, Sunflower, is out July 2nd on Loveway Records.
From The Interview Yeah, my biggest thing is telling these kids to follow their dreams, because anything is possible, and the first thing is believing and loving yourself. That's our biggest message - whatever you want to do, you can do it, you just have to believe in yourself and you have to have patience and persistence

You can check out our interview with Sleeping With Sirens here. The band is currently on the Kia Forte Main Stage on this summer's Vans Warped Tour. The band's brand new album, Feel, is available in stores and online.

It's hard to believe that we are half way through 2013. Six months in the books and yet there is still no instance of this year slowly down with quality releases week after week. I'm unveiling my five most anticipated July releases a week early since next Monday we'll be highlighting the staff's mid-year Top 10 lists. This month's list was a little easier to put together than last months insane smorgasbord of amazing LPs, but that doesn't mean there's a shortage of great stuff releasing in July. Check out my list in the replies and feel free to discuss the albums you're anticipating next month.
Drew Beringer on 06/24/13 - 06:11 AM
This week on the Self Promotion Forum, I found the excellent Home Of The Useless. Home Of The Useless play alternative rock which has more than slight leanings towards post-hardcore and would be perfect for fans of Thrice. Download their EP, Happy, for free from their Bandcamp.
