Wendy Rollins was able to interview Jack Antonoff from Bleachers and Fun.
Originally I was supposed to talk to Jack Antonoff last week but things got nutty and I got a call from Mr Antonoff yesterday. He had a lot going on-as it always is with him. Between Bleachers and Fun, and ---a movie? Yep, that's right, Jack Antonoff is taking it to the screen. He's going to be in a film with Sally Field called Hello My Name Is Doris but he wasn't supposed to be/ it just kind of happened...he'll explain. We talked about his current tour with Bleachers and it seems like he may have an upcoming Philly date about to go public and whats this about Bleachers LP2??

I had to ask him about Fun of...

Say Anything's acoustic version of "Belt" was one of the first exclusive downloads we ever had on this website -- over a decade ago now -- oh ECA Records, how I remember thee. It's going to be making its remastered appearance on the Doghouse Records' boxset release and you can stream it in the replies if you've never heard it before.

It's no secret that we here at AP.net enjoy some good pop-rock. We're excited to bring you a nice pop song by Signature Mistakes. It's called "Soul," and it's from their upcoming Novelty, which comes out this Tuesday. Oh, I should mention it features Speak Low If You Speak Love's Ryan Scott Graham on guest vocals, so you know it's a good one. Check it out in the replies.

This week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast begins with a talk about Blink-182 exhaustion and yet our need to talk about Tom DeLonge's new song. I am not a fan. Thomas likes it. We discuss if we're grading Tom on a curve, the overall impact of not having Jerry Finn as a guiding force in the Blink world, and the plausibility of the whole Blink-183 rumors. From there we talk about how underrated Dashboard Confessional seems to be and the band's return, a bunch of albums got announced this week and we touch on a few, and then we finish up the episode answering a question about being self-employed and needing to be self-motivated. Thomas and I share stories about striking the balance...

SXSW has banned most drone usage this year.
"This policy was established after consultation with drone experts, user groups, municipal authorities and aviation safety experts," read a SXSW statement. "While SXSW may make exceptions to this policy if the drones are used within certain trade show areas where safety measures such as tethering to the ground are implemented, the airwaves and/or frequency spectrums generally used in the remote control of drones are too congested during the SXSW event to ensure operation safe from interference."

Head North are releasing a new EP called Bloodlines on March 24th via Bad Timing Records. You might remember when we premiered "The Planet" last month, and today we are streaming the whole EP. Look no further than "Brave Hands" for the best song the band has written, equipped with emotion-drenched vocals and guitars to match. "Bluejay" showcases some of the band's best guitar work, while "The Path" features gritty strums and haunting dual vocals that approach screams. Fans of Have Mercy's The Earth Pushed Back should really enjoy these tracks, as it makes it pretty clear why they're on the road together right now with Weatherbox and You, Me & Everyone We Know.

Travis Barker of Blink-182 sat down with Yahoo! and has posted a new band photo of Blink-182 with Matt Skiba on Instagram.
According to Barker, a big part of the issue was that DeLonge’s heart wasn’t in Blink. “If I showed up for this interview and I was like, “Oh, man,’ you wouldn’t even want to do this interview. You would catch my vibe,” he says. “That’s what it was like playing at practice with the dude forever. It was just like, you’d drive to Orange County to practice, drive an hour and a half to get there, dude’s upset, bummed-out or venting about something. We’re all, ‘Everyone’s got their issues, let’s just play music and have fun and be happy and kick ass.’ So it feels good to...

Jeff John Roberts, writing at Gigaom, looks at the different legal cases related to royalties and the music industry that are set to shake out this year.
A solution from courts or Congress is in order. The danger, though, is that a partial solution will protect parochial interests such as FM stations or labels that own 1960's recordings without creating a sustainable system for royalties in the digital age. There's also a risk that changes to the law will simply scapegoat companies like Pandora and Spotify, which represent the future of music, or even kill them off altogether. In any event, watch closely. This is the year that a lot of long-time log-jams in the music industry appear set...

Zac Lomas, writing for PunkOut, looks at pop-punk's heteronormativity:
The pop-punk scene needs to make a stand and support pop-punk bands that openly identify as LGBTQ and whose songs give the LGBTQ community something to identify with. The LGBTQ community needs to hear Jordan Black from Like Pacific scream about his failed relationships, they need to hear Against Me’s Laura Jane Grace sing about the harsh realities of being Trans in America, and they need their own Soupy.
