Against Me!'s new album will be released next year.
Yes. It’s done. It’s mastered. We’re finishing artwork. It’s hard to keep in perspective that, “Okay, the time will go quick [before we release it].” There’s a part of me that’s just like, “Put it on the Internet now. Let’s go!” Because the recording process took so long, I feel like we’re those runners at the end of a marathon collapsing as they come across the finish line. Their legs are giving out underneath them, they’re vomiting everywhere, and they’re just wrecks.

I kind of thought the crowd-funding thing was interesting but I had a whole mess of fear based somewhat ethical concerns. Most of which I addressed pretty explicitly in the essay that accompanies the Kickstarter campaign but I ultimately decided to do it because I wanted to do something different and see if either A, I was super misguided in thinking I had the kind of connection with the audience that I thought I had or B, I was correct in assuming that they're not concerned where the records come out label-wise as...

This week on the Self Promotion Forum, I found the wonderful Microwave. Microwave are a melodic post-hardcore band from Georgia who have just released their third EP, When The Fever Breaks, as 'name your price' through their Bandcamp. If you like Taking Back Sunday or the idea of Jimmy Eat World with a bit more edge, Microwave are the band for you. Interested in being a part of the Self-Promotion Spotlight? It's easy, just sign up for an AbsolutePunk.net account and post in the Self-Promotion forum.
