At A Day To Remember's show in Columbus, OH, Jeremy announced that fans can expect a deluxe physical release of Common Courtesy some time in November. The band's fifth full-length record will be released digitally on October 8th via the band's official website, and there is still time to pre-order.
Just a reminder about our ongoing "Share Your #YCMoment" contest, as it wraps up this weekend. We want you to share with us and the band your best #YCmoment at one of the band's upcoming shows. To do so, take your best Instagram or Vine of the band performing your favorite song or even try to catch Sean mid-backflip. Here are the details and we'll be highlighting our favorite moments thus far on Monday before passing them onto the band. (here's the best of the last twoweeks).
Update: AP.net writer, Thomas Nassiff, has reached out and recieved a statement from Victory Record's lawyer, Robert S. Meloni.
While Victory is disappointed with the ruling, and disagrees with the court's conclusions, it comes as no surprise. Courts rarely grant negative injunctions of this nature, but the circumstances of this case presented a unique opportunity for such a ruling. Having said that, in denying Victory's motion, the court's reasoning actually contained silver linings that significantly favored Victory. First, the court held that it supports Victory's argument about the construction of the recording contract Ė that ADTR is still obligated to deliver two more albums to...
Saturday Night Live will always be something I look forward to watching every week. Every season I always look forward to what musical guests Lorne Michaels and company are going to book. Last week, Arcade Fire kicked off the 39th season, while Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry are booked for this week and next. SNL does a fairly decent job of mixing in established bands with up-and-coming bands throughout a season. What follows in the replies is my wish list for artists I hope to see grace the SNL stage this year along with what songs I'd like to see played. After you check out my list, make sure to add in what bands you'd like to see this season.
Hear a new A Lot Like Birds song entitled "Kuroi Ledge" in the replies. The track comes from their upcoming full-length, No Place, due October 29 from Equal Vision Records, which is now available for pre-order.
Joan Jett is a bona fide rock and roll pioneer, icon and a future Hall of Famer. It was truly a treat to see her and the rest of The Blackhearts at such an intimate appearance - but I think it's safe to say that the show would have rocked just as hard regardless of the size of the venue. Unvarnished is classic Jett, and its release show followed suit.
In this week's AbsolutePunk.net Podcast, Jason calls up and Zack from PropertyOfZack to talk about the state of blogs and what itís like when you make a lot of changes. Do users rebel? Are people ready for the next AP.net?

Suicide Silence is pleased to announce the addition of Eddie Hermida to the family. Many of you may be familiar with Eddie through his work with All Shall Perish. For those of you unfamiliar, our relationship with Eddie goes way back to the Spreading Disease Tour, our first U.S. headlining run, in 2006. Mitch & Eddie remained long-time friends and we felt that if the band were to continue it should be with someone Mitch knew personally and respected as both a friend and an...
You can check out our exclusive premiere of Story of the Year's acoustic rendition of "And the Hero Will Drown" in the replies. It's off the Page Avenue acoustic album, Ten Years and Counting, which will be available this upcoming Tuesday, October 8th.

We've reached the penultimate installment of Vanna's The Few and the Far Between: The Movie. The ninth chapter is set to "When in Roam" and lives up to its refrain of "Live free, die free." Head to the replies to watch as loose ends are tied up. Be sure to tune in next week for the film's grand finale.
Have you met Sorority Noise? I sure hope not, otherwise what are we even doing here? A fuzzy, dirty pop-rock band who probably belong in mid-90's England rather than 2013 Connecticut, Sorority Noise features Cameron Boucher (Old Gray) on vocals, Kevin O'Donnell on bass and Jason Rule on drums (both of Two Humans semi-fame). The band are releasing their Young Luck EP on cassette via Broken World Media as we speak, and you can go ahead and stream the song "Queen Anne's Lace" in the replies. It's like Morrissey's little brother high-fiving the good parts of Daisy. And that's a fact, not up for interpretation. Please don't go against the family on this one. Bye love you.
Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian is back to return the third season of Blood and Guts, a behind-the-scenes look at how some of the all-time greatest practical effects artists create the gore and monsters that genre fans love. Head to the replies to watch the season premiere, which features Johnny Deppís regular makeup designer, Joel Harlow.
