Cynicism isn't wisdom, it's a lazy way to say that you've been burned. It seems, if anything, you'd be less certain after everything you ever learned.
Kelly DohertyI've fallen in love with Nana Grizol, so everyone should listen to them. Kodaline's In A Perfect World, Windings' It's Never Night and Halves' Boa Howl have also been on rotation.

This week on the Self Promotion Forum, I discovered the lovely Keeler. I'm super excited about them and despite the fact that they have only released two tracks (both of which are available for free on their Bandcamp.), they've already got the modern emo sound nailed. Their new single "Shoot The Jay", from their upcoming EP, sounds quite a bit like Snowing and their overall vibe is jazzy modern emo. Download their two songs and get stoked for their EP, Too Old To Believe In Ghosts, which will be released in September. 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.

Staying in on a weekend often has negative connotations, but who doesn't enjoy time to themselves once in a while with some good tunes and fine wine (or beer!)? Some of my favourite albums began to resonate with me on a deeper level when I was absorbed by the music coming out of my headphones the entire night. And tonight is precisely one of those nights: I'm surrounded with incredible new music by The Civil Wars, Eric & Magill and Typhoon, as well as some delicious Cabernet Merlot, and I couldn't be happier. So if you're out there also doing nothing other than enjoying the company of some great music, then come say hello and share those tunes!

Yeah, we’re free agents now. That’s another thing that’s been really nice about this process. We can just do what we want with the songs. There’s not any kind of outside influence.

Ten former American Idol contestants are suing the show (for 25 million dollars) for the allegedly racist policies set in place by its producers.
The group claims they were unjustly kicked off the show because of their race, accusing producers of orchestrating a “cruel and inhumane” scheme to juice ratings by allegedly digging up their criminal histories after they were accepted on the show in order to embarrass them in TV segments. According to their lawyer, James H. Freeman, they were treated unfairly by the producers. Freeman also says their arrest histories were obtained illegally, and the practice was used to find dirt only on black singers. None of the contestants, Freeman says,...

Design the Skyline have broken up.
My heart is heavy as a dawn sets towards a new sunrise. 4 years ago my band Design The Skyline formed from the passion of 7 individuals with the goal of creating a unique open-minded experience in a world bound by normalities. While the goal was ultimately reached and many loving, dedicated fans rose and stand by us, we have decided to part ways and begin a new chapter in our music careers.

"Thank you to all the fans who supported us, fought with us and will continue to do so! I have endless love and appreciation for you! I will never forget all the messages from everyone saying I saved lives, opened eyes, inspired, and helped push through the...

TMZ shot footage of Scantlin leaving the police station Wednesday night. On the way out, Scantlin defended himself, "My neighbor vandalized my house so I had to take action." He also mentioned the sledgehammer ... but was mum on the buzz saw.

Kid Dynamite will be breaking up after a farewell European tour next year.
It was 2010 when we were first invited to play This Is Hardcore in Philly. It was our first show in nearly 5 years, since playing CBs. We’ve always gotten offers to reunite for a show or two, but nothing ever really panned out. It seemed like all of us were interested in possibly hitting the stage a few more times. Why not? Right? Over the past 3 years we’ve had the pleasure of playing some pretty exciting shows; a warm welcome in California, a magically dusty weekend in Austin, a unexpected romp in Gainesville, a beautifully nostalgic show at the Church in Philly and most recently our first trip to Europe. We...
