Last week, an article on OC Weekly featured a quote from Touche Amore frontman Jeremy Bolm where he said his band would never play the Warped Tour. In the ensuing slew of opinions on the Internet responding to the quote, AltPress editor Scott Heisel commented that if you'd asked Touche Amore three years ago whether they'd open for AFI in 1,500-cap rooms, they probably would have said no. Bolm responded to this with a hell of a statement, a fraction of which is below. The rest is in the replies.
There is a world of difference playing alongside a band like AFI and a band like Atilla. My problem is playing alongside bands EVERY DAY that represent things that make my skin crawl.

In a slight change from the normal, this week I came across a book on the Self Promotion Forum. Titled Play Me Like Your Favorite Record and written by AP member, Nathan Thomas (luckisoverrated), the novel follows three friends on their adventure in re-staking their claim on their local music scene. Inspired by this particular thread the book is bound to appeal to all of us who spend so much time on the AP forums. Nathan has posted up an excerpt on the Self Promotion Forum and if you need a little more insight into the book just PM him and he'll provide the first three chapters for free. If you like, you can buy the book here. Interested in being a part of the Self-Promotion Spotlight?...

For those who don't know, AbsolutePunk.net initially started out as a Blink-182/MxPx fansite. So it's pretty cool that our latest AbsolutePunk.net Podcast episode features Jason chatting with Mike Herrera of MxPx. In this episode, Jason and Mike talk about the current status of the band, being in a band for some two decades, record label politics, real world politics, and Mike’s own podcast hour.

You can subscribe to this podcast in a variety of ways: via iTunes, your own RSS feed (instructions below), or streaming/downloading the mp3 in the replies. You can also find our previous episodes on iTunes and SoundCloud. As always, we hope you enjoy.
