All Shall Perish bassist Mike Tiner spoke with Metal Injection about how Suicide Silence's management basically gave the band no choice but to fire their former vocalist Eddie Hermida, who was then announced as the new vocalist of Suicide Silence a short time later.
Suicide Silence's management informed us of all of the things All Shall Perish would and would not be "allowed" to do. All Shall Perish could not play a show until Eddie was well "established" as the new singer of Suicide Silence. Suicide Silence's management told us that they would have to be well into their new album and touring cycle before All Shall Perish could be seen again with Eddie," Tiner told Metal Injection.

Crusades is a Canadian punk band that will issue its second LP, and first for No Idea Records, on November 5. The album has a really long title. It's Perhaps You Deliver This Judgment with Greater Fear Than I Receive It and we've got an exclusive stream of "The Expulsion" in the replies. The record has a long name for a reason – according to the band, it's a concept album centered around the life of philosopher, heretic and antichristian martyr Giordano Bruno as an archetype for the modern atheist, freethinker, artist, poet and lover. Listen to the track in the replies and let us know at what exact timestamp your mind explodes.

This week's Fest 12 feature was going to be a huge playlist that I created on Spotify featuring bands playing this year – but then I kind of realized that someone else had already done a way better job of creating such playlists, and that's the man who organizes Fest himself, Tony Weinbender. Tony has curated a host of playlists – six to be exact – featuring 20-25 songs each. Additionally, one of the other wonderful people who help make Fest happen, Sarah Goodwin, has her own playlist thrown into the mix. You can check out all seven playlists – enough to last you until Fest starts on Thursday, basically – over on Bandcamp. Take a listen to the bands you've never heard of, because that's...

The Offspring are going to be focusing on single releases instead of albums.
We’ve been working on a couple of singles, we’re not sure what we’re going to do with them yet, if we’re going to put them on the internet and send them to radio or whatever. As far as a full scale album there’s nothing in the works, if we do something it wouldn’t be until at least next year, but we’re still moving forward and still going to keep trying to put out new stuff.

Billboard is reporting that YouTube is close to launching their very own music streaming service.
One big added feature could be the ability to stream full albums. Currently, not all songs in an album are available on YouTube because artists generally select one or two tracks from any single album to feature in a music video. A second potential premium feature would be offline cacheing of songs and videos so users can listen on their mobile devices even when they're not connected or when they're trying to save on bandwidth costs or battery consumption. Finally, the removal of ads would almost certainly be a feature in the premium offering, sources said.
