Andy Greenwald over at Grantland wrote a piece on the My Chemical Romance breakup and what they, in particular Gerard, meant to the music world.
Rock critics have long fallen back on superhero mythology to describe musicians; it's a handy way to add grandeur to what tend to be fairly rote backstories, bending boring arcs of rehab and redemption into the Hero's Journey, all in a quest to avoid quoting the drummer. But My Chemical Romance was the first group I covered that actually used that mythology for themselves. Gerard called his band "an idea," labeled his fans an army. From album to album and show to show, MCR reinvented themselves across a multiverse of possibilities: They were...

Baroness drummer Allen Blickle and bassist Matt Maggioni have parted ways with the band.
Nothing can truly prepare you for a brush with death. The event is unique one, singular to the observer. Trust me, you don’t want to invite the experience. Our bus accident left indelible marks, external and internal, physical and mental, you name it. Each of the nine of us went through and continues to go through an entirely different, yet common experience. We are tied to each other by a trauma, which, despite its damage, has been made individually easier through our shared ordeal. While I would never wish the incident on anyone, I cannot imagine going through that wreck alone.

Thankfully,...

I’d watch cartoons, and I would just kind of like… I would want to make them because there weren’t any limitations. Even at a young age, I didn’t see limitations. Like a cartoon could be of anything… Literally. I know I’ve been using that word a lot, but I try to only use it when it’s correct, so that I emphasize. A cartoon could be anything, and...

Today we're so excited to stream the debut EP from Boston up and coming act Paris. The self-titled EP from the young act shows an extreme amount of poise which is all lead by the incredibly dynamic Lynn Gunnulfsen fronting the band. Guitarist Alex Babinski creates hard hitting and spacy guitar leads while Brian MacDonald (Bass) and Brad Griffin (Drums) provide the backbone for the band. This is recommended for fans of Conditions and Circa Survive and I promise you this band will be making waves very soon. The EP drops tomorrow but you can stream it now on the band's AP.net profile.
