Ryan Rockwell from Mixtapes sort of tried to explain his side of the incident at Warped Tour on his podcast. I listened to most of this thing and didn't hear the words "I'm sorry" used once, and I'm still a little confused why this wasn't what he immediately said on Twitter instead of the sarcastic "yeah?" he posted soon after. Couldn't the easy response have been, "it was a horrible joke gone wrong, I immediately corrected myself and am an idiot, I am so sorry I said that" on Twitter? That would have obviously been reported if he tweeted that instead.
I always like to mess with the rest of my band if they’re talking. Maura was talking about that situation and I wasn’t really thinking...

Matt Wachter has left Angels and Airwaves.
Matt Wachter we love him! We are sad to see him go, but the man now has 3 amazing kids and needs to be at home this year to be a Dad... And of course we support him. Dick jokes and memories will not fade.. We are all still great friends, so don't freak out kids-- Matt still might join us later down the road somewhere and somehow. Until then I have to just send him naked photos of men to make him smile..

Pegasus Festival happened outside of Dallas, Texas this weekend. This is the first festival for Ghostlight Concerts, and they did a decent job.The big draw was Brand New but in true Brand-New-style, there were a lot of let down fans. Luckily, Circa Survive, Bad Books, PM Today, and Residual Kid were there to save the day. Hit the replies to read my full review of the festival.
Brand New took one hundred years to actually take the stage and opened with "Sowing Season," followed by a lot of Daisy and D&G.

Billboard has obtained "a typical contract" being offered by YouTube to indie label partners for its new subscription service.
Those company payment percentages are lower than the combined 70% in revenue (approximately) that the interactive, premium component of services like Spotify or Rdio pay to labels and publisher rights owners, according to label and digital service sources.

But, it turns out, indies’ unhappiness with YouTube has more to do with contract terms other than the rates they would be paying.

The main beef with YouTube is the company's take-it-or-leave-it approach, which they say includes an onerous and negative most-favored-nation clause. If any major label or...

Dr. David Glowacki, a leading US scientist and research fellow at the Royal Society in London, was booted from the Bristol Old Vic after he tried to crowdsurf during Handel's "Messiah."
Dr Glowacki has attacked the decision to force him to leave the concert by saying: ‘Classical music, trying to seem cool and less stuffy, reeks of some sort of fossilised art form undergoing a midlife crisis.’

Deryck Whibley of Sum 41 recently sat down for an interview with Geoff Nixon at CBCNews:
"When everything that happened to me after years and years of drinking so much, I never realized that I was taking it that far, I never realized that I would end up in the hospital like that," he said. "I just wanted our fans to know that it can happen to you, too, if you’re not careful."

We've had a few readers write in that in the Warped Tour program there's an ad for Razor and Tie that lists Finch's new album as titled Back to Oblivion with a release date of August 12th. We haven't seen any scans of this yet, so I'm saying take it with a grain of salt until it's confirmed.

Croatian Amor's new album, The Wild Palms, is not available for purchase but can be exchanged for a "full-frontal nude self-portrait" of yourself with the title of the album written somewhere on your body. The artist behind the "promotion," Loke Rahbek, will only make as many copies of the album as people who send him the photos.
So I ask that anyone who gets the music does not share it with anyone. And I promise in return to not share those photos with anyone. They are going to be in a file, and they are going to stay there. I wanted it to be secret, because you know if we’re talking about intimacy, nothing is stronger than keeping secrets together.
