Wolf Alice will release their debut album, My Love Is Cool, on June 22nd via Dirty Hit Records and today they unveiled the album version of live and fan-favourite "Bros". Do yourself a favour and welcome in the summer hit this song always deserved to be by hitting the replies and checking it out.
"Bros" is a sentimental tune to us, it's grown and changed with us over the past couple of years, taking on different shapes and forms until it evolved into being this definitive album version. It's an ode to childhood imagination and friendship and all the charm that comes with that. The live response to the song has been truly humbling." - Ellie Roswell (vocals, guitar)

We recorded this week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast mere hours before Brand New debuted a new song live ... we made a few predictions that come true and others that fail almost in real time. We talk a lot about Brand New's marketing roll out for "Mene," talk a lot about the song itself, and speculate on the band's future and what they may do next. Then we move into talking about All Time Low selling the most albums in a week but not having the "number one album" of the week and why that bothered Thomas enough to write an article about it. Can it be fixed? Should it be fixed? There's some Apple Watch tossed in here and some talk about Four Year Strong's new song as well. Good...

Carly Rae Jepsen has announced that her forthcoming follow-up to 2012's Kiss is titled E·MO·TION and will be out this summer (Tower Records Japan accidentally announced it as June 24, but there hasn't been confirmation from Carly's camp). In the meantime, hit the replies to listen to the Dev Hynes-assisted "All That."

Ethan Kath of Crystal Castles has posted a new song on the band's Facebook and Soundcloud pages titled "Frail". Whilst Alice Glass is still not a part of the act, a new vocalist referred to as "Edith" appears on this song. Check it out in the replies.

Florida’s Northbound started out as a solo project from frontman Jonothan Fraser, but has evolved over the last three years into a sometimes-acoustic / sometimes-full-band act, similar to Evan Weiss’ early experiences with Into It. Over It. While Northbound takes on a more pop-punk vibe, "Slug," which you can stream exclusively in the replies, will also resonate with fans of many of the grunge-leaning acts gaining popularity today; a comparison to Citizen also comes to mind. “Slug” is taken from the re-worked LP Death Of A Slug, which Animal Style Records will release this summer. It can be pre-ordered here if you like what you hear.
Thomas Nassiff on 04/16/15 - 09:57 AM
Badflower's new video for "Soap" is in the replies.
Ryan Gardner on 04/16/15 - 09:48 AM

Thomas Nassiff on 04/16/15 - 08:59 AM
After several impressive EPs, Nebraska's No Tide are gearing up for their full-length debut, Death of the Sun. Head the replies to hear the lead track, "Empty Handed," which sets the pace for the album. Produced by Jay Maas (Transit, Polar Bear Club), the effort drops on June 30th and can be pre-ordered from Take This To Heart Records. The band sounds like a mix between Saves the Day, The Menzingers and The Story So Far.
Alex DiVincenzo on 04/16/15 - 06:20 AM
Reports are coming in from the Brand New show tonight in LA that if you buy any merch the band are giving out what appear to be lyric sheets to the new song "Sealed to Me." You can check a photo out in the replies.

Update: The song was played live tonight as an encore, video in the replies.

Samuel Penner has been asked to leave For Today. A statement from him is in the replies.
I was told that I was unequally yoked with the band because of my personal beliefs of how I should live my life after coming to know Jesus. For this reason, the band could no longer support me or walk with me on this path. (To be clear about this, for those who care, my personal belief is simply that a standard of living our lives after salvation has been set by God in the “Old Testament” law. Not for salvation but for living a life in service to God.)

High On Fire will be releasing their new album, Luminiferous, on June 23rd. This is the band's seventh studio album, and it was recorded with none other than Converge's Kurt Ballou. You can check out the artwork and a statement from Matt Pike in the replies.

Track Listing:
01) The Black Plot

Boyfriend Material, the solo project of Shauna Healey, will release Far From Home on June 9. While Healey performed at FEST 13 and is an active member of Florida Scene Safe Space to promote a more inclusive environment in the punk scene, Boyfriend Material isn't a typical punk project. It owes as much or more to Waxahatchee or Bright Eyes than Swearin' or Desaparecidos, featuring, generally, only Healey's voice and ukelele. You can check out her single "Hometown" in the replies, along with tour dates. Far From Home is currently available for preorders from Community Records if you like what you hear.

iTunes recently put together a list of their favorite music podcasts and the AbsolutePunk Podcast was included in this list. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone that reached out to them on Twitter and said you liked us, or left us a review, or has shared our podcast with a friend, or has listened to one of the past 78 episodes. We really appreciate it and are humbled by the support. I know, personally, that the launch of this podcast has been one of my favorite things we've done on the website in years. It's reignited a spark inside me to talk about music and our little scene here and the learning process from episode one to now has been a crazy fun journey. Thank you, especially,...

Hit the replies for a video of Brand New performing "Missing You" live at the Filmore last week. This is one of the better versions that contains the reworked bridge and outro (starting at about the 2:08 mark).

All Time Low's Future Hearts debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart today, coming in with 80,251 equivalent album sales while the No. 1 album, the Furious 7 Original Soundtrack, chimed in with 111,109 equivalent album sales. But Future Hearts actually outsold the soundtrack significantly in terms of traditional album sales -- 75,375 to 45,084 -- and was surpassed due mainly to strong single sales of Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again." We've got an article today that outlines the flaws within Billboard's new formula to determine the Billboard 200, which this week deprived the general "Warped Tour scene" of its first-ever Billboard 200 No. 1 album. You can check out a pull quote from the...

Julie Beck, writing for The Atlantic, about Dashboard Confessional:
In my high school bubble, it was cool, or at least unobjectionable, for Dashboard to be my favorite band. When I got to college, it became quickly apparent that this was something to hide. Emo was narcissistic, whiny, embarrassing. To be referenced ironically or, preferably, not at all. Emotion wasn’t cool. You know what was cool? Pretention.
