Travis Barker's memoir will be out this Fall.
Happy to say I'm in the finishing stages of my book. It will finally be released this Fall and I'm really proud of it and I can't wait to share it with the world.

Fireworks is going on hiatus after they finish their shows.
There's no way to express how much your love and support has meant to Fireworks - and furthermore, to us as individuals over the last 8 years or so. After these upcoming gigs are ripped, we will be taking a break for awhile to give the other sides of life a try. We really don't know how long "awhile" is, but you'll be the first to know when we figure that out. Hope to see everyone this Spring and Summer. Fireworks Forever.

Have I ever mentioned that Tiny Engines is one of my favorite labels? If you think you're having a case of deja vu, don't worry. We have another stellar premiere from the label - this time from Akron, Ohio's very own Annabel. The band's new album, Having It All, was produced by the Emo Mayor himself, Evan Weiss, and features some of the best emo-tinged rock you'll hear in all of 2015. Trust me, this album fucking rules and you can get a sweet taste of that awesomeness in the replies by streaming the title track. Then go and pre-order every single variant because you will regret it if you don't.

Stereogum has profiled the ... issues ... the VNYL service has had since their Kickstarter. Who would have guessed?
In short, the service being pitched by VNYL would have violated copyright law. The old-school Netflix model worked well for DVDs because movies weren’t covered in the Record Rental Amendment — but applying that same model to vinyl records (or cassettes, or CDs) would have been illegal. VNYL was supposed to start shipping records to subscribers in early February, but it didn’t actually do so till early April. When those records arrived, there were no instructions for how they might be returned — almost as if VNYL had simply forgotten to include such instructions.

It's no surprise to anyone here that Tiny Engines is one of my favorite labels. They just recently signed Sweet John Bloom - a trio that excels in blending the line between indie, pop, and punk. The band will be releasing its new album, Weird Prayer, on June 9, 2015 and we have a new song off it titled "Night Thing." After you fall in love with the song, make sure you pre-order it in a variety of different formats.

Nic Newsham of Gatsbys American Dream, and now Canons, is on the latest episode of Voice and Verse podcast.
We toyed with the idea of calling this new project Gatsbys, because it very well could be a Gatsbys album, but everyone is just doing too many things [for a reunion to happen]. We tried to reform like five years ago; we set up a website and said we were coming out with a record. It was such a huge disappointment to us, and I’m sure certain people were bummed, too. It made us look really shitty; I felt really bad about the whole thing. Bobby got really sick in the meantime, and a lot of shit went down. We talked about doing this as Gatsbys, but I just don’t think it’s going to...

Google has redesigned their Play Music platform on the web.
A few months ago, Google's Play Music smartphone apps were updated to showcase the company's colorful material design interface. And today, Google is giving a similar fresh coat of paint to Play Music on the web. Load the company's music portal and you won't notice any drastic differences from what was there yesterday, but a slew of design tweaks have brought Play Music into a more cohesive experience that feels more app than website — and that's the whole point.

Frankie Palmeri from Emmure responded to an Alt. Press question of "whether artists should be more mindful of what language they use." Creating a straw-man to argue against is sort of a weird way to respond though.
I want to first answer this question by simply addressing the question at hand with a counter-question: Are you asking if artists have some moral obligation to make sure their lyrics are nice and safe for people of all walks of life? Should all artists be concerned about the influence they have over the possibility of someone hearing or reading something that would motivate a person to commit some sort of heinous or unlawful act?

Save Face are releasing a split with My Heart, My Anchor on May 26th. Their side was produced by Jesse Cannon (Transit, Man Overboard). We are premiering the song (and video) "Brain," which you can check out in the replies. The song is definitely reminiscent of early Transit in ways, but it has some cool noodly guitar parts that have some prog influences and the vocals veer toward screams at times. This is the first song the band has released as a four-piece instead of having five members. If you like what you hear, you can pre-order the split.

Ghost Thrower surprised fans last week when they announced they're releasing a surprise album, Batsy, on May 15th - tomorrow. Frontman Travis Alexander recorded the album by himself at a friend's lake house in New Hampshire over the course of a week this past winter. The seclusion yielded some of the band's most desperate material yet. This is especially apparent in the new song "Seaside Suicide," which you can stream in the replies.
