Update: Scott Weiland was not actually arrested. It was an imposter.

We recently interviewed The Copyrights about its brand new record Report and recording with Mike Kennerty from the All-American Rejects. Physical copies of the album are out on Tuesday via Red Scare Industries.
While we were gone he put in some guitar leads and harmonies himself, which kind of makes him like a member of the band on this record. I mastered it at my studio here in Illinois after, probably three weeks altogether which is the longest we’ve ever spent on a record.

The Wonder Years have cancelled their Australian Tour.
We're devastated to announce that we must cancel our upcoming Australian tour due to circumstances beyond out control.

Last week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast featured an interview with Hopeless Records as we took a little mini-break from our regular conversations. This week we're back with a jam-packed episode that covers a variety of topics: We look at what it's like working in this industry and offer advice for those wanting to get into it, we discuss if album cycles lead to albums being overhyped and if bands basically get two albums before collapsing under the expectations. We also touch on musicians that genre-hop in order to prolong their careers, and we ask the question everyone seems to be wondering: Uh, what the fuck is going on with Transit? Is Tim still in the band? What's going on...

Henry Rollins has penned a piece for LA Weekly called "Fuck Suicide."
When someone negates their existence, they cancel themselves out in my mind. I have many records, books and films featuring people who have taken their own lives, and I regard them all with a bit of distain. When someone commits this act, he or she is out of my analog world. I know they existed, yet they have nullified their existence because they willfully removed themselves from life. They were real but now they are not. I no longer take this person seriously. I may be able to appreciate what he or she did artistically but it’s impossible to feel bad for them. Their life wasn’t cut short — it was purposely...

Mark Romanek, the director of Taylor Swift's new video for "Shake it Off," has responded to Earl Sweatshirt's claims that the video was "inherently offensive."
I'm a fan of his and I think he's a really interesting artist. (I posted a Vine to one of his tracks once.) But he stated clearly that he hadn't seen the video and didn't even intend to watch it. So, respectfully, that sort of invalidates his observations from the get-go. And it's this one uninformed tweet that got reported on and rehashed, which started this whole "controversy." We simply choose styles of dance that we thought would be popular and amusing and cast the best dancers that were presented to us without much regard to...

Mashable talks with some of the early 2000's "emo era" bands that helped bring the genre into the mainstream. You know, bands like The Early November, The Starting Line, and I Am The Avalanche.
For me, it was just what I happened to listen to. Pop music usually underwhelmed me, and true street punk music did not speak to me either. Pop punk felt just right. I could sing melodies that had emotion while still playing loud and fast.

Anberlin's site with all their lyrics and write-ups about the lyrics has been updated with all of the band's songs.
The title is a mantra that we as Anberlin have always tried to adhere to, we never wanted to be ‘rock stars’ we never wanted people to think that we thought of ourselves as better than anyone. We hope that we were more than just a band, we hope in the end that we are considered friends; I felt this was the perfect message to leave out on.

We just wanted to address everything going on with Tony. First, I want to say how shocked and disappointed we are about the allegations in the news regarding him. This is something that we would have never expected to hear about him. With that being said, Tony has not been a member of Betrayal for over two years. He had some unfortunate events happen in his life that did not allow him to commit full time and be a member of this band.
