"I've got a problem with the way you think."
Jason TateSome interesting stuff on the blog.
Dre OkorleyThat quote is from the new Paint It Black EP, Invisible, due out on April 1st. Each of the songs are floating around the web so listen and enjoy... because it's addictive. Also, The Front Bottoms and their new video.
Deborah RemusListen to Hollerado's White Paint and catch them live with Sum 41 and Billy Talent if you can.
Kelly DohertyThe Front Bottoms are too awesome for words, I've been rediscovering Modest Mouse's The Lonesome Crowded West and Boilermaker's Leucadia and Snowing are wonderful.

Entertainment Weekly has an interview and a exclusive stream of a song written by Jack from fun., for Super Why.
I wanted [the songs] to feel huge and larger than life and epic. I don’t know if there really should be much of a difference between a children’s show and a Bruce Springsteen concert. I think everyone should leave with the same feeling, which is hopefulness.

Frank Iero of My Chemical Romance has posted a new blog.
i have written, deleted and rewritten this letter way too many times than i care to remember. i am not much for eulogies so i will keep this short and to the point. i don't believe in holding back your feelings or emotions until it is too late. if you did not appreciate someone or something while they were still here then you have no business expressing cute anecdotes when they are no longer around to enjoy them. in the 12 years i have been in mcr i believe i have said all i needed and wanted to say about it when it counted. if you know me or have ever listened to me speak about mychem you know what it meant to me. i lived,...

If that headline seems a little hefty, that's because it is. PropertyOfZack has an interview up with Jonny Craig today where they discuss Craig's sobriety, why he tried out for The Voice, and the fact that some fans who he ripped off in the MacBook scandal still support him. Great job, fans.
You’ve had your ups and downs. Do you feel like you have to build things back up?
I definitely have ride or die fans that still love me. Even people that got ripped off. There are a couple people I ripped off in the Macbook thing, and they still tweet at me all the time. Some of them donated to my campaign.

PureVolume sat down with Texas Is The Reason to discuss the band's final shows.
There was a period where we said, "Why say no? Let's keep the door open." But it's a lot of work to be in Texas is the Reason. [Laughs] It's so much fucking work and I can't have that window open while I'm focusing on other things, so I want that to be clear to the people who care about these shows. I don't want people to go, "Well, I thought they'd come back." Now that the songs are recorded and The Complete Collection is out, I really feel like our work here is done.

Robbie Mackey has been named as Mom+Pop's new head of marketing.
"Over the past few months we've been looking at the best way to structure our marketing endeavors as we look to grow," wrote Mom+Pop label head Michael Goldstone in a statement. "It became obvious to us that Robbie was the most qualified to run it. We stand in a time where the line between marketing and online has shifted to be one in the same, and Robbie’s keen knowledge of both arenas makes him the perfect choice for this position."

Boston Police are posing as punk/indie-rockers online to get their catfish on and crack down on house shows after a nuisance control ordinance was recently passed.
Almost everyone in the DIY scene has had an experience with phony police emails, direct messages on Twitter, and interactions on social media. For some it's become just another part of the promotion business—a game of spot-the-narc in which the loser gets his show shut down. According to one local musician who asked not to be named, the day before a show this past weekend, police showed up at a house in the Allston neighborhood, home of many of these house shows, claiming that they already knew the bands scheduled to play....

We are writing to thank you for your purchase of this set and to address a problem that you may have discovered. By now, many of you have received your set, and you may be wondering why several of the records are mislabeled. It has been discovered that the records were mixed up at the manufacturing plant during production. We are looking into this issue and are working diligently to understand how this mix-up occurred. Rest assured, we will fix each and every one of the sets that are mislabeled. This will require us to have the mislabeled albums remanufactured and reshipped out...

Tiger! Tiger! has changed their name to Secret Grief and announced a split LP on Soft Speak / Meadowbrook Records.
Five-plus years later here I am writing about a name that suddenly carries some meaning. There are people across the country who know what Tiger! Tiger! is. No longer is it just a collection of songs that I’ve written. When we go to play shows in other states people come and sing along. They recognize our songs and enjoy watching Tiger! Tiger! play. It honestly blows my and all the rest of my bandmate’s minds that this happens. We understand that we’re not the biggest band around, but we know that there are plenty of people out there that love and care about Tiger! Tiger!....

I'm incredibly thankful to all the musicians that have allowed me to be part of their recordings and will fondly look back at all the great music and friends I've made along the way. I'm excited to see what 2013 has in store and to see what's next. Get in touch with me asap to set up time. I hope to see some old friends and make some new ones during this last run.

Twin Falls, the new project of Chris Carrabba and Suzie Zeldin, is changing its name to Twin Forks following a short-lived controversy over the moniker. A mere couple days ago, we reported that a UK artist who calls himself Twin Falls claimed that the new superband stole his identity. Okay. Way to be a good sport, Carrabba and Co. The band has also released a new song, which you can check out in the replies along with a statement from, um, Twin Forks. Now the only boring name-change whining we have to keep track of is The Story So Far v. The Story So Far.
