The UK will be rolling out a new policy in 2015 that will warn repeat copyright infringers and educate them on where they can find legal content. However, according to reports, there will no longer be penalties for ignoring the warnings:
Business Secretary Vince Cable said this week: "The creative industries in the UK are one of our brilliant global success stories. We have unrivalled creativity - from record breaking musicians to box office films - that excite and inspire people all over the world. Yet too often that content is open to abuse by some who don't play by the rules. That is why we are working with industry to ensure that intellectual property rights are understood and...

Davey Havok from AFI is acting in and co-producing a new movie about punks and skins in the 90s, called The Violent. The filmmakers are currently running a crowdfunding campaign to raise pre-production funds and help build awareness for the project.
Set in the mid 90s amongst a tight-knit group of punks and skins, “The Violent" follows a teenager in his final year of high school as he is drawn down a path of crime, and must ultimately reconcile his own violent nature, or be consumed by it. “The Violent” is an independent film, financed by private investors, and the awesome public at large who want to see this movie get made. That’s you! This campaign’s initial goal of $20,000 allows us...

Billboard has a good run-down of the current lawsuit Sony Music is facing from claims they "cheated" American Idol stars.
The litigation explores quite a bit of ground in the modern music business, from the way in which a music major like Sony accounts for revenue off of platforms like Spotify and iTunes to how advertising expenditures are treated. One topic that was largely overshadowed when 19 Recordings filed its claims this past February was Sony's alleged duty to share the spoils of its proceeds from big battles on the copyright front. For example, three years ago, Sony was among the record majors that extracted $105 million in settlement from file-sharing LimeWire. Does the money...

A purported rare testing pressing (I can't confirm if it's real a real test press or not, you'll have to trust the poster) of Brand New's Your Favorite Weapon has been put on eBay to raise money to try and save a non-profit all ages venue/art space the owner opened last May.
I think there were less than 10 test pressings of this record, it was eventually repressed a ton of times on different labels, but this is the Iodine recordings version, the real 1st pressing. This record was a gift, and I do not want to part with it, but it may be the only way to save the non profit all ages venue/art space I opened last May. I was lucky enough to book / work with Brand New before they became a...

Ian Cohen, writing for Grantland about Joyce Manor:
Considering its caffeinated, soused, sweet, and wired music, it’s fitting Joyce Manor was consecrated over an alcoholic energy drink. And as a kind of quintessential California suburb, the physical and conceptual “Torrance” is the perfect place to inspire a perfect summer rock album, i.e., Joyce Manor’s new LP, Never Hungover Again, released today. Most people drawn to this music formed their idea of “summer” at a time in one’s life when summer was significantly different from the rest of the year — Johnson describes his own as consisting of “backyard shows, everyone would be skateboarding, chased off by security guards, throwing water...

5 Seconds of Summer will be playing an arena show at the Forum in Los Angeles on Saturday, November 15th. According to the press release I just got, the band's new album "has already peaked at No. 1 globally on iTunes in 71 countries, and has secured more preorders than any other artist in the history of Universal Music Group." Oh, and Universal Music most certainly classifies them as "pop-punk" (actually, to be fair, it's "pop-punk sensations"). This sort of reminds me of when Simple Plan kind of came out of nowhere (from the ashes of Reset) and everyone did a collective, "Huh? These guys aren't pop-punk!", and now they're effectively written into the pop-punk lexicon. It seems like...

The Garden Spot High School marching band has been told by the school board that they're no longer allowed to play Fall Out Boy's "Thnks Fr Th Mmrs" due to the lyrical content.
The Garden Spot High School marching band will need to come up with two new songs this season after the Elanco school board voted Monday to reinforce an administrative decision to remove a pair of songs because of their lyrics. The 6-3 decision was made despite the fact the songs are performed as instrumentals.

Sum 41's Deryck Whibley posted a demo of their song "Crash" on his site along with a write-up about its origin.
i was going through my old cassette tapes of ideas today and i came across the original demo of the song “crash”. this recording was made about an hour after i witnessed a horrible car crash where one of the drivers was killed instantly. it all happened right before my eyes. i was the first one there and jumped out of my car immediately trying to help but i could feel the lifelessness in the air, you could just tell he was dead and there was nothing i could do. i’ve seen a few people die in front of me in my life and it’s definitely a bizarre moment to see the life being taken...
