Watch a new Coliseum video for their track "Bad Will" where the band gets arrested at the end in the replies.
"It was Ultra Pop's 5th anniversary and they asked us to set up illegally next door and play a set," says vocalist/guiarist Ryan Patterson. "It was an oppressive 98 degrees outside, and the music apparently was rattling windows many blocks away... Soon enough the police rushed in and the rest is on film."

Chunksaah Records is releasing The Bouncing Souls' 1993 EP, The Greenball Crew, for the first time on vinyl. You can pre-order it here.
Redesigned and remastered for a vinyl only release, this record will only be made available as a pre-order and will only be pressed according to the amount of records pre-ordered over the course of one month. On May 20, 2013, all sales will end, and after the records are pressed and mailed out to all who ordered, the release will go out of print, once and for all. No copies for retail outlets, no digital download version, and certainly no CD version. Love it or hate it, here it is. Be warned!

In a recent PropertyOfZack interview, Cory Brandan of Norma Jean stated that his band is considering writing and recording an EP in 24 hours sometime this year.
CB: We have one song that got scrapped from this record, but I think we’ll probably just write something in a couple of weeks and go for it. We also want to do this cool thing we were talking about: writing and recording an EP in 24 hours. Film it and stay up…
POZ: Just go from beginning to end in one day?
CB:Yeah. So we’re going to start working on that pretty soon too. That will be fun. We’re going to do some fun, different stuff. I don’t want to keep doing… I’ve been doing this so long it’s like, “Ok here’s the cycle: we put...

We caught up with Joshua Radin to talk a little bit about his upcoming album.
I guess I don't see the point anymore in waiting for labels (machines) to get their ducks in a row. The people want their entertainment faster these days. And I have been feeling slightly prolific in terms of musical inspiration. A few years ago I may have waited to put this album out, but in 2013, it seems like the public is ready to devour new music at a much quicker pace than in previous years.

Relient K have posted a few notes of clarrification from their previous post.
Just to clarify a few things about Relient K. (From our previous post)

1. We will be doing the upcoming tour as a full band, and we are very excited about it! Dan Gartley and Tom Breyfogle will be performing on bass and drums respectively. They are both amazing friends (from Canton, OH), and incredibly talented musicians.

2. We are all still friends, and only want the best for each other.

3. Our new album "Collapsible Lung" is finished and will be coming out soon. It was made by all five of us. We apologize for the delays thus far. We are so excited about it and can't wait for you to hear it!
