Varying heavily from the format of recent talks, my newest "Behind the Bits" with stand-up legend Andy Kindler focuses much, much less on his career and places the spotlight on current comedy events and the state of the industry as a whole. While I'm biased, I consider this one a must-listen, even for non-comedy followers.There's not much else I can say without pointing you to the stream, so head over and give it a listen. It's lengthy, but it's the most enlightening conversation I've had with anyone in a very, very long time. Be sure to check back next week, when my guest is stand-up comic and the voice of Bob's Burgers' Gene Belcher, Eugene Mirman.

I’ll be honest with you, I don’t really know. I see all over the internet and music sites, people are saying, “Oh, this is going to ruin their career, there’s no preorder up, they’re stupid, they’ll never be the big band they could have been,” etc. How about this: I’m not going to allow someone to sit on my career and ruin what may be our best album for people. Fans want our music.

Today we're happy to announce that AP.net and PropertyOfZack will partake in an unofficial post-Riot Fest night at Red Door in Chicago this Friday. The night will feature a playlist chosen by Zack and I, so rest assured that the tunes will be good unless you hate everything we like. You can see all the information on Facebook; our playlist will start at midnight (one hour following Fall Out Boy's set). Since a lot of forum members have been asking about a community meet-up in Chicago, we figured this would be a great time to invite everyone to come together, listen to some good music and hang out following Riot Fest's first day.

Chiodos has entered the studio to record its fourth album with producer David Bottrill. Press release can be seen in the replies.
Chiodos’ Craig Owens comments, “We’re excited to be working with Dave Bottrill on this new Chiodos record. Some of the records he’s done have influenced the band and helped us define what we’ve become. Muse, Tool, and Silverchair are all at the top of our list, and it’s amazing to be working with someone that’s already been a part of our history, indirectly. So for the next two months, we’ll be hiding out in the woods of upstate NY, in a hollowed out Church turned studio – creating what is to be the next chapter of this crazy Chiodos journey. ”
