There's something perfectly comforting about recording a podcast last night and posting it today. We're back after a mini (and unforeseen) little break in our podcasting schedule. But, things are now back on track. This week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast looks at some follow-up on our last episode and The Wonder Years, Apple Music's trial ending and if we're going to keep paying for it, how we handle and get album advances, the new TWIABP album, the new Motion City Soundtrack album, Ryan Adams' '1989' cover album, and the whole Collect Records/pharma-bro thing. Thank you to everyone that listens to our podcast each week. We've got some really awesome things prepared for the...

Dan Buckley, writing on his blog, about how he sent one email to get his unsigned band on tour with Emery, This Wild Life, and The Classic Crime (I wonder what that starred out .net URL is).
So we waited for a couple days without hearing anything back. I was beginning to get nervous, but then, two days later I received a phone call. It was Matt Carter. He said heíd read my email. He made it very clear that sending my email was a total long shot, but it would probably work out to have us out on tour with Emery. He went on to say the email had addressed everything they needed to complete the tour and it didnít make sense to say ďNoĒ.

Finally after all my failing, we had a huge...

Emperor X recently underwent treatment for, and has survived, testicular cancer.
I had testicular cancer this summer. Surgery and chemo treatment sucked. It worked flawlessly. Now i don't have cancer anymore. Posting this feels like tearing off a band aid. I tend to hide worrisome facts about myself because I hate it when people worry about me. But now that I survived cancer (?!? that still feels insane to type) I have the elated survivor's burden to boost awareness, so it's time to let you know what's up. Women and men friends of mine, today, right now, for me, no matter where you are, I urge you: gently and thoroughly prod all of your spongy dangly self-examinable tissue with no...

Ever want to see the "family tree" of a band or music? This website is pretty damn cool.
Disco/graph is an interactive visualization of the relationships between musicians, bands and labels. The graph only shows 100 entities at a time, so double-click on any circle containing a plus-sign to reveal more connections.

In December, he'll reunite with The Starting Line for a show at The Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey. The group is also working on new music, with an unspecified release date.

Iím from Tampa, Florida where I spend my days drinking lots of coffee, nerding out on the guitar for hours, running my own business teaching guitar, and squeezing in sweaty yoga sessions when I can. I feel beyond stoked to get to play with a group of guys who have influenced my playing and taste for a very long time. Itís gonna be a rad time, and I hope to get to share the experience with you all. Letís rage!Ē

It looks like Jack Dorsey is going to be named the new CEO of Twitter. I think this is a good move, given the options. I sincerely hope Twitter becomes as important to others as it has become to me. I honestly can't think of a more used app on my phone than Tweetbot (which is telling how important the service is to me, and how badly the first party apps suck).
Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, who has been serving as interim CEO for the past three months, is expected be named the companyís new permanent CEO as early as tomorrow, although that timeframe may change, according to sources. Dorsey will apparently continue to run Square, the payments company he founded where heís also CEO.
