The Maine's Kennedy Brock has revealed that he recently underwent surgery.
During our time recording American Candy, a tumor was found on my thoracic spine. I went through a tricky surgery to remove it, but everything went as good as humanly possible and it has since been classified as benign. I am currently healthy and free of my unwanted friend, but still very sore and healing. I am writing to request that everyone please be gentle, with hugs and such, while hanging out with me over the next few months. I love you all and couldn’t be happier to be seeing you all again soon! #AMERICANCANDY #8123 #Nigelthetumor

John Nolan has launched a PledgeMusic campaign for a new solo album.
For the past couple of years, between touring and recording with Taking Back Sunday I’ve been writing and demoing songs for a second solo record. Throughout this process I’ve worked with some great musicians who I’m lucky enough to call friends. Mike Strandberg, who plays with Kevin Devine’s band has played guitar. Brian Bonz, a great singer songwriter has sang backing vocals. I’ve recorded some songs with Dylan Ebrahimian, who plays violin with Gabriel The Marine. I’ve also been working with Benjamin Homola, drummer for Dashboard Confessional and Bad Books. My wife Camille, who’s worked with me since I released my...

Joe Trohman will not be performing with Fall Out Boy in London this week due to his mother passing away. Our thoughts are with you Joe.
I regret to inform our fans that I will not be performing with the band this week in London. This was not an easy decision to make on my end. In an effort to be fully transparent, I would like to explain why. In late-September of 2014 my mother started showing signs of a serious illness related to a condition she was treated for 30 years ago. After some tests my mother was diagnosed with what is known as a glioblastoma multiforme. A glioblastoma is the most aggressive type of brain tumor one can get, and with no hope of finding a cure.

An artist agency recently tweeted out a congratulations to two of their actors for booking a job on the Nate Ruess music video. Some on Twitter are speculating it's for a solo album, but my first guess was the Brian Wilson collaboration.

Creatively, we’re still going strong as ever… Our sound has developed and expanded and gone in all sorts of directions. We’ve also been dedicated to completing our opus with Main Attrakionz, 808s + Dark Grapes 3, and ended up creating 100s of songs and scrapping four or five full length albums. After 3 years and many mental breakdowns, we’ve finally reached a point where we are all completely satisfied with the ...

Philip Ball, writing for Scientific America, explains how game theorists have "cracked poker." Hope everyone has a great Friday and a great weekend.
A new computer algorithm can play one of the most popular variants of poker essentially perfectly. Its creators say that it is virtually “incapable of losing against any opponent in a fair game”. This is a step beyond a computer program that can beat top human players, as IBM's chess-playing computer Deep Blue famously did in 1997 against Garry Kasparov, at the time the game's world champion. The poker program devised by computer scientist Michael Bowling and his colleagues at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, along with...

Somos have dropped off their tour with Dads.
We have some unfortunate news to share: we are no longer on the February tour with Dads and Roger Harvey. Dropping a tour is a tough thing to do, and I want to be very open about why we came to this decision. I have struggled with anxiety and depression, and it eventually built up to the point where touring in February was daunting and unmanageable. I recently started to get serious about treatment, but we want to have a few months off while I pursue the goal of dramatically improving my mental health. We plan on continuing to tour and make music, once I take the proper time to address my health. We sincerely apologize to Dads and Roger...

Rolling Stone sat down to talk with Fall Out Boy.
"Real early on we decided that, regardless of who wrote what, we'd split everything four ways," says Patrick Stump. "There are records where I've done a whole song or Joe [Trohman] has written an entire music bed, but we all get the same credit. If there's four of us onstage, the four of us are receiving the same amount of credit, the same amount of money and the same amount of everything."

Many of their friends in other bands were shocked when they learned of the arrangement. "They were like, "Are you guys crazy?'" says Stump. 'You do all the writing!' And all those bands are broken up, every single one of them."

Explosions in the Sky have posted an update on their website. They're working on a new album.
Sorry that we've been running silent for awhile. The last few years have been pretty hectic for us (touring, working on soundtracks, etc.), so we've spent the last few months in hibernation. 2015 will also be on the quiet side, at least as far as touring and shows are concerned. This is because we'll be spending most of our time writing and recording stuff for a new album. We're well into the process, but we still have a ways to go. We're pretty excited about what we're coming up with and we'll keep you posted as we go. Anyway, we just wanted to say welcome to 2015 and we hope it goes okay...

If you're looking for a heartwarming story to make your Friday a little better, look no further. Hardcore bands may have a notorious reputation to some, but to many it is known for being among the most united and loyal. One of the scene's most well-respected veterans, Nate Gluck, a bassist and manager for many bands throughout his career, has been stricken with stomach cancer. Due to the overwhelming bills that this illness brings, a GoFundMe was started. Less than 24 hours since it has been started, over $50,000 has been raised. We wish the best for Nate and his family during this time.
