I See Stars missed today's New Jersey date on Warped Tour. The reason? An anonymous tip from someone on the tour told me the band was kicked off today's date because they "never unload the stage truck."

This week on the Self Promotion Spotlight I found the lovely Friend Skeletons, an indie tinged punk band from Providence. The band incorporate math-y twinkles, catchy melodies and a general punk vibe into their music and their distinct vocals and organic feel are highly striking. If The Gaslight Anthem and American Football combined, the product could sound a little like this. Download their new EP People on their Bandcamp as 'name your price'. Interested in being a part of the Self-Promotion Spotlight? It's easy, just sign up for an AbsolutePunk.net account and post in the Self-Promotion forum.

We offer a revolving assortment of distinctive single-origin beans as well as exclusive James Coffee crafted blends. Using modest production methods we are able to approach each individual roast as an opportunity to elevate and preserve our quality and taste.

Looks like we'll be getting a new The Gaslight Anthem album next year.
Working on new songs for a new Gaslight Anthem album in 2014. Dig it. Tourís been great, Brianís very pleased he hasnít has many photos of him taken. Heís busy in the back of the bus writing new songs, something about Bob Dylan and Led Zepplin and Neil Young in the same band. We donít know what heís on about. Weíll leave him be for nowÖ We havenít seen him in anything but sunglasses for the last three days. At least Ray Ban is very pleased. More to come, this will updated WAY more frequently now that weíve stolen it from Brian. Though he may arise from his tomb of 60ís and 70ís records and write something odd...

Jaded Punk has posted a list of "36 Pop Punk Albums You Need To Hear Or Just Go Fucking Die" in response to BuzzFeed's list.
Weíve noticed a trend of people co-opting pop punk to mean whatever the shit they want it to mean. And hereís the thing: we get that punk is supposed to be all-inclusive and itís open to interpretation. But if we canít set up at least some broad musical boundaries, the genre is meaningless and everything is pop punk and we can include Dr. Dreís The Chronic.

Sharks have broken up.
We're sorry to announce that the four of us have decided to end our journey as Sharks.

Unfortunately all of our upcoming dates have been cancelled and we have no plans as of yet to play any final shows. We sincerely apologise to anyone who has bought tickets or were planning to buy tickets to any of these shows. On a positive note, we have just finished making a brand new music video for 'Gold' with our good friend Tom Lacey, which we'll be releasing for all of you in the coming weeks. We will also be holding a sale on all of the remaining Sharks shirts we have available, none of which will be re-printed.

We want to thank all of you for the incredible...

Today we're streaming a new track called "This Is Your Brain On Love" from Houston, TX duo Fox & Cats. This is the title track from the group's upcoming EP set for release July 23rd, and trying to think of a way to describe them became sort of a challenge for me, although one I enjoyed because the song is a solid listen. Imagine pop song structure but with the influence of The Front Bottoms and Weatherbox. The song is also available for free download. Listen to it in the replies.

Track listing
1) Thoughts
2) This Is Your Brain On Love
3) Write It Off
4) Terrible Things
5) Fair Share
6) Broken Glass
