The "Shark Attack" vinyl (pictured below) comes in a die-cut package designed to look as if a shark has bitten it. The double LP set comes in a clear polybag and is pressed on open water blue vinyl in red "blood splattered" sleeves.

SaferScene.org talked with Buddy Nielsen of Senses Fail:
It’s a thin veil that once you’ve seen the other side, you go “How does everyone not see this?” Raising awareness is one of the things that I can do to effect any change. It’s not necessarily about changing people’s opinions, but you want them to be aware of things. Maybe they then can change the way they interact regarding these situations. It’s super ingrained in people to continue to think the way they’ve always thought.

Aaron Marsh of Copeland mentions that the band are throwing around ideas for a new album with New Noise.
I think we’re more cautious about our decisions. We think more big picture than we did before. It’s risky to come back, yeah. If You Are My Sunshine was our last record, I would have been fine with that because I like how it turned out. The last song of that record feels like a good song to say “Okay that is the last song of our recorded history”. I still feel like I have things to do and say on Copeland records.

It's the end of the year, so every one and their mother, and now, their president, are here with their favorite bits of pop culture. President Obama, for some reason, gave an interview to People Magazine and discussed his favorite song of the year, Kendrick Lamar's "How Much A Dollar Cost." The first lady's favorite song? Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk." Wonder what Adele song was Queen Elizabeth's jam.

Noel Gallagher was recently asked what he thought of Adele, and he responded as Noel does. Check it out here.
"If someone wants to know what I think of Adele, I’ll f***ing tell them… I just don’t see what all the fuss is about. I don’t like her music. I think it’s music for f***ing grannies.”

Gallagher then said that he wasn't trying to cause a stir; he was just speaking his mind.

He said: “If I get asked a question on anything, I give a straight answer… Not because I have any sort of agenda or because I’m trying to whip up any kind of hysteria.” .

Drake hasn't been shy about the troubled relationship he has with Cash Money Records, and this probably won't help things: Hits Daily Double reports that his massive single "Hotline Bling" wasn't nominated for any Grammys this year because of a "clerical error." Presumably it got lost in Birdman's pile of paperwork for his "oil company."

Martin Shkreli, the drug company exec widely loathed for jacking prices of a life saving drug 5,000% higher, is apparently the anonymous buyer of the one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang album Once Upon A Time In Shaolin. Shkreli mentions the possibility of paying other artists to record albums just for him, and also says "I could be convinced to listen to it earlier if Taylor Swift wants to hear it or something like that, but for now, I think I’m going to kind of save it for a rainy day," and RZA says they donated a significant portion of the purchase to charity. I hate this dude.
