Candy Hearts have parted ways with bassist Christian Migliorese.
I didnít want to really mention this or draw a lot of attention to it because itís really just not a big deal, but so many of you are asking since he posted on twitter yesterday. Christian is no longer playing in Candy Hearts. We want to assure you that the three of us (Kris, Matt and I) believe this is the best possible move for our band. We are more excited than ever to make a new record, tour and keep getting our music out there to you guys - because you mean the most us.

Sound and Fury 2013 has been cancelled.
Itís over. We are sorry to bring you this unfortunate news but the 2013 edition of the Sound and Fury festival is cancelled. We apologize to everyone from the bottom of our hearts for having to do this, but it was unavoidable. In order to quell speculation, you will hear the absolute truth from us. Due to unforeseen circumstances and the massive financial risk it takes to run a festival, we have to cancel this year. We are just two people, running a festival that brings in over 60 bands and 1,800 kids to Santa Barbara every year. The amount of logistics and headaches this encompasses one can only imagine, needless to say from March to July our...

Well, it's the start of the new week and if you're visiting this website on a mobile device right now ... you've probably noticed that we've got a brand new mobile site.

Read our show review of the April 26th Austin stop of The Gaslight Anthem's tour with Matt Mays. Be sure to check out photos from the show.
To me, The Gaslight Anthem just sounds like American rock music should. Listening to their records makes me wonder what it must have been like growing up in the 70s or 80s, and I canít help but feel like this is the type of music my dad and his friends grew up listening to. Gaslight represent the new face of rock and roll music, and each member delivers exactly this on stage. Seeing the band live made me realize exactly why we all their songs so much Ė simpler, older times brought to life today. As one of the defining rock bands of our generation,...

This week on the Self Promotion Forum, I came across an independent record label called Enjoyment Records. The label is based in the UK and puts out releases from wonderful bands who are just under the radar, such as Indian Taker, Things Fall Apart and Nai Harvest. Despite the incredible eclecticism of its releases, every band they deal with is highly skilled at their trade and this is certainly a label to collect every record from. Whether you're a fan of super heavy stuff or an emo kid, Enjoyment Records is obliging. To get a taste, check out their free sampler here. Interested in being a part of the Self-Promotion Spotlight? It's easy, just sign up for an AbsolutePunk.net account and...
