Lorde will be curating the soundtrack to the new Hunger Games movie as well as providing the first single.
"Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance," Lorde said in a press release. "The cast and story are an inspiration for all musicians participating and, as someone with cinematic leanings, being privy to a different creative process has been a unique experience. I think the soundtrack is definitely going to surprise people."

A few weeks back, I (alongside quite a few others around the internet) took a look at the issue of deep-rooted misogyny within the scene. The response was quite overwhelming and the comments ranged from exceedingly positive to dismissive and critical. I gave quite a lot of consideration to how I could back up my ideas with tangible proof and I realised the one way that we could show that women experience sexism within the ‘rock circuit’ is by actually asking the musicians themselves. Hence, below is a piece with the opinions and experiences of the members War On Women (punk band recently signed to Bridge 9 Records) and Chumped (pop punk). Enjoy.

Our friend Gunz spoke to Nick Thomas (The Spill Canvas) about his new band, The Nick Thomas Band, who will be heading out with William Beckett and Paradise Fears in the fall. Nick also talks about his struggle with addiction and how he eventually was living on the streets for a few weeks. You can listen to the interview here.

You can read our new interview with The Story So Far here. The band is currently wrapping up Warped Tour, and are in the beginning stages of writing a new album, set to be released sometime next year.
Trying to write an album and tour is just taxing. We'd like to take the time to do it, so after Warped Tour we're going to do what we have booked through the end of this year and a little bit into next, and we're going to take all that off time to write a new record. We've already started working on it, we're already demoing songs, but it's a long process and these things don't come quick. We haven't booked studio time next month or in two months, towards the beginning of next year ...

You can check out our new interview with Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! here. We talk about the band's time on the Warped Tour, as well as moving forward as a band.
We're trying to bring back the "fun" vibe to pop-punk. I feel like the whole pop-punk scene is trying to be a little bit too serious, in my opinion. Pop-punk has always been a fun kind of music.

House of Heroes have started and IndieGoGo for their next full-length album.
We want to make a true concept album. A story.
Often times we'd discuss how fun it would be to do this, but we never followed through for several reasons. Fear of total commercial failure, the grandiose scope of the whole thing, the fact that it's not the 70's anymore and it's hard enough to hold someones attention for one song, let alone an entire album. But we believe that we've found a group of fans that are craving this very thing from us, and we are now inviting you to join us as we move forward into the next chapter of House of Heroes.

David Byrne has published a letter from Brian Eno about the current Israel and Palestine conflict.
Why does America continue its blind support of this one-sided exercise in ethnic cleansing? WHY? I just don't get it. I really hate to think its just the power of AIPAC… for if that's the case, then your government really is fundamentally corrupt. No, I don't think that's the reason… but I have no idea what it could be. The America I know and like is compassionate, broadminded, creative, eclectic, tolerant and generous. All of you symbolise those things for me. But which America is backing this horrible one-sided colonialist war? I can't work it out: I know you're not the only people like...

Head to Vice's Noisey to read drummer Jonathan Diener discussing the career and end of The Swellers.
Maybe we missed our big shot by not cashing in at the right time. Maybe we could have set our artistic pride aside and written the same record over and over again. Maybe we released too much music. Maybe we shouldn’t have been so accessible to our fan base. Maybe we could have picked a different record label or a different manager or changed our band name a few years in. You can question yourself forever, but it won’t change a thing. I like the choices we made. I like that we took risks and kept it real.

Promise of Redemption is releasing a song from an upcoming B-Side album for a donation to the American Cancer Society.
Hey everyone, as most of you know, I am a big supporter of the American Cancer Society. When it came to my attention that my best friend Jon Lyons was raising money for the American Cancer Society by running in the New York City marathon in honor of his dad (a cancer survivor), I thought when better a time than this to put the full weight of all of my amazing friends and fans behind such an awesome cause. Jon has been training relentlessly for this and I am super proud of him. For those of you who don’t know Jon, he is the drummer of the always amazing Zolof the Rock...
