Alter The Press recently spoke to You Me At Six.
"We love Warped Tour and it's a great way to get your band exposed, especially when you're first starting out but I feel like if you start doing it every year or every other year, you get pigeonholed into that scene. It's not something that we don't necessarily want to do again but it's something that we're conscious about that we don't want to be just a Warped Tour band. "

On The Gunz Show, Gunz spoke with The Neighbourhood where they discussed new music they are working on and how it's some of the, "most exciting stuff they've done."
"We have some new music coming up. We have a whole new project thatís done. I donít know when itís coming out, but when it does I think thatís really going to be the ďOh shit!Ē momentÖ.Itís something that us 5 wrote on the road. No studio. We recorded straight onto the computer, all ourselves. Itís us now, which is a little bit different. But Iím more proud of it than anything we put out in a long time. "

Read our write-up of the November 10th Austin stop of the Lydia tour with From Indian Lakes.
With From Indian Lakes having even more energy and emphasis live than on record and Lydia having a more upbeat atmosphere than normal, this show was definitely a memorable one. If you havenít seen Lydia since Devil came out, I highly recommend trying to catch them soon, as the songs carry over quite well to the live setting Ė sing-alongs, people. Iím sure seeing the duo with The Maine and Anberlin was fantastic, but I was quite happy to be able to catch the two on their last night out following that tour.

These bluetooth headphones are promised to provide "impressive comfort, and intuitive controls" all while "providing superior sound quality in wireless communication and music listening." I haven't had a chance to listen to music through them yet -- so I expect the contest winners to let me know how they sound. How do you win? Post in the replies and we'll pick two lucky winners from the thread in the next few days. Good luck.

Huge thank you to NoiseHush for sponsoring this contest. You can check the replies for some photos of the headphones, and find out more information about the company making them here, here, here,...

Last night at Manchester Orchestra's sold out NYC show, the band played a couple of new songs (one of which was "Cope." Both songs were very loud and very catchy.) Before one of them, Andy Hull announced to the crowd a cryptic and possibly sarcastic statement, which is paraphrased below.
We have a new record that's never going to come out. But if it did come out, this song would be on it.

Hopefully this is just Mr. Hull messing with us, but who knows. Either way, check out the band's tour dates for the rest of the year, and recordings of some of their new songs live, in the replies.

Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, the missing jailed Pussy Riot member, has reportedly turned up at a hospital in the Siberian region of Krasnoyarsk.
"She was in good condition. She said her conditions were OK," Verzilov said by phone. "She's not sick right now, sheís just having procedures and tests related to the hunger strike." Verzilov added that conditions at the hospital were satisfactory. Although the facility does treat tuberculosis, it functions as an ordinary hospital. The activist had been missing for 24 days, after she was abruptly moved from a camp in Mordovia, where she had been serving her sentence. She told Verzilov that during the time of her disappearance, she had been kept from...

Hmmm, more Brand New news to get riled up about: Tickets sold out for their discography shows insanely fast. So fast that tickets are now on StubHub for absolutely insane prices. They sold out four dates, two coasts, in maybe two-minutes total. They're also trending on Twitter; which will probably lead to a lot of very confused people.

Ian Curtis' kitchen table has sold for over 13,000 dollars on eBay.
Joy Division original members Bernard Sumner and Stephen Morris would like to lend their voice of support to Deborah and Natalie Curtis, who have been caused great distress over media reporting of the sale of the table originally owned by the family, and currently being auctioned on eBay. Deborah and Natalie would like to point out that the sale of this table has nothing whatsoever to do with them. The table was sold along with the house in 1980 and Natalie has never signed any authentication document. Furthermore, they consider the sale of a personal family item, and the subsequent media reporting, to be distasteful...

He's created an Indiegogo project to help pay those bills. Check it out and help if you can.

The Sing Me a Story Foundation combines the imaginations of children in hospitals, childrenís homes, vulnerable youth organizations and hospices with the talents of songwriters to create stories and songs that bring joy to all those involved. John Feldmann of Goldfinger stopped by the bus and created an original song from a story and performed it live on The Lennon Bus.
