Panic! at the Disco drummer Spencer Smith wrote a blog detailing his recent struggles with drug addiction. He entered treatment last fall and is now clean.
For the past 4 and a half years I’ve been battling addiction. Well, to be honest, I’ve really been battling it for the last two years. Those first 2 and a half years were spent in a place where I thought I had finally found the correct dosage of my personally prescribed medicine to feel “normal"…..In reality, I was mostly stumbling through my life hoping no one noticed I was high.

Growing up I never used drugs or alcohol. I smoked weed and had my first drink in the same night when I was 19. I loved it, and from that point on...

In a recent interview with PropertyOfZack, Joshua Cain of Motion City Soundtrack mentioned that the band is planning on releasing a new record in 2014.
Realistically, there’s no way that the full album could come out before next year. I don’t think that’s possible. I would love it to — maybe it will. But I feel like 2014 is a much safer bet for a new album. We may release some songs prior to that, and you might know about it, but it takes time to set up a record. These days, maybe we’d record a record and release it right after we were done and not have any set up, because I don’t know how to do these things anymore. It all changes so much every day.

Everyone knows vinyl sales are up across the board, but did you know people aren't listening to them and labels are increasing the cost? Probably figured out the later, and I hope you're not one of the first.
A simple analysis gives the appearance that overpriced vinyl records are not generally being bought by kids for their rediscovered fidelity. From Williamsburg to Portland, our musical choices define some part of our identities and displaying these choices, along with our apparent respect for the value of music, makes our identities non-virtual—i.e., real—as well. Even iTunes has default settings, which display covers from our music library as art. They’re not only time capsules of...
