It's been rumored that Lily Allen would release her follow up to It's Not Me, It's You in 2013, but apparently it's going to be released in March of 2014. With that being said, Lily has updated her site and tweeted that she's coming back. More updates are sure to unfold in the near future.

This week on the Self Promotion Forum, I found one of my favourite bands in the forum in recent times. Greaver are a four piece post-hardcore band from North Carolina who easily fall in to the emo world. Their recent debut EP, Clockwork, Creatures, is an intense emotional rollercoaster filled with urgent screams and epic instrumentation. Bringing to mind State Faults, Greaver have already created a thrilling, outstanding EP despite their musical youth. The EP is available as 'name your price' on their Bandcamp. Check them out, you won't regret it. 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...

Following the news that one person died and two were in serious condition at Zedd's tour opener in Boston, Electric Zoo has canceled the last day (today) of the three day festival due to two deaths and four more people in critical condition.
The founders of Electric Zoo send our deepest condolences to the families of the two people who passed away this weekend. Because there is nothing more important to us than our patrons, we have decided in consultation with the New York City Parks Department that there will be no show today.

Kyle HuntingtonAs most people around here can imagine...The 1975's debut album which is released this week. Come and talk to us about it in the thread. As well as the podcast that Jason, Drew and myself recorded about the album and the band which you can check out here. A bit of Sons Of Anarchy on the side too.
BlakeI've been listening to a bunch of Real Friends this week. Stuff from Everyone That Dragged You Here, Acoustic Songs and Put Yourself Back Together. They're a fun/sad/fast pop-punk band for fans of Man Overboard.

If you head on over to All Time Low's website, a short 30 second video automatically plays. It's unclear what the video means (they are sitting in a theater watching a silent black-and-white movie), but you'll notice that Vic Fuentes (Pierce The Veil) is sitting with the band. Is this is a teaser for "A Love Like War," a new song featured on the band's upcoming Don't Panic reissue that features guest vocals from Fuentes?

Earlier this week, Tim Kasher released the first single from his upcoming album, Adult Film. Kasher is, of course, better known as the leader of Cursive and while I love that band, I've always preferred his solo work. So that's the inspiration for this week's discussion leading into the holiday weekend. In what cases do you prefer a side project or solo effort over the more-known or popular full band act? Do you prefer The Eraser over anything in Radiohead? Is Desaparecidos the superior Conor Oberst product? Are you a Horrible Crowes fan or do you stick by The Gaslight Anthem? Let us know in the replies.

Read an interview with producer Sean O'Keefe in the replies, in which he talks about recording the first tracks from Take This To Your Grave and recording Plain White T's "Hey There, Delilah."
Those recordings and mixes ended up getting Fall Out Boy their record deal. They went on the record as-is and ended up becoming the singles too.

PropertyOfZack has released its list of most anticipated albums for September. What's on your list? We'll have our list up on Monday.
Drew Beringer on 08/30/13 - 11:09 AM
The 1975's upcoming self-titled debut is one of the most anticipated albums of 2013. Jason and I were fortunate enough to get advances of this record a while back and we are both pretty big fans of it (it may potentially top Jason's AOTY list). Fellow staff member Kyle Huntington also had the pleasure to hear the album early and we invited him on as our guest for this week's podcast in which we discuss the album at length. We also get Kyle's UK perspective, since the band originated from and have blown up over there. You can stream The 1975's debut record now and check out the podcast afterwards.

If you want to get your holiday weekend off to a raucous start, you should check out Extinction A.D.. The band is an offshoot from This Is Hell and features Rick Jimenez on vocals. I highly recommend it if you're into thrash/metal/head banging your life away. Check out some of the band's tunes on its Bandcamp.

A few months ago, Shane Told of Silverstein reached out to me about starting up a monthly sports column on the site. I thought why not? We have a very strong sports forum and a lot of our users are very knowledgable about various sports. Now that his band just wrapped up its stint on this past summer's Warped Tour, Shane sent me his inaugural AP.net sports column, which you can read in the replies. It's not often that sports and this scene crossover, but in this month's column Shane discusses how musicians and athletes cheat to get ahead.
