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.
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,...
On last night's The Gunz Show, Gunz had the first interview with Get Involved! (GlassJaw, Thursday, From Autumn to Ashes). They said that they will be releasing a live song this week, and also discussed their kickstarter. You can hear the interview here.
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.
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.
"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."

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...
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!....
Ed Rose (producer of The Get Up Kids, Motion City Soundtrack, Reggie and The Full Effect, and many more) is quitting music production after the 2013 calendar year, and putting Black Lodge Recordings up for sale.
It's been a great ride but 2013 will be my last year for making records. 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. Bands in Scotland, England, Germany and...
Because we haven't heard a lot from Justin Timberlake lately, head to the replies to watch the superstar take five shots of tequila over the course of a 10-minute stretch on the Jonathan Ross Show, a British late-night program. It should be noted that he's playing three holes of mini-golf at the same time.
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.
