Hello World. TUI here. We're writing to give everyone an update on the future of the band. Let's get straight to the point: Beginning in August 2013, Trapped Under Ice is going on a pretty lengthy hiatus. We are NOT breaking up. This is by no means the end of TUI. We just decided that it was important to keep the band fresh and something the five of us enjoy. We don't wanna spin the wheels for nothing and just write music because we feel like we have to. We don't really feel right about just putting out another record for the sake of touring right now. So, while its still fun, we're gonna go on a...

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Google is trying to put together a Spotify-esque subscription music service.
Google Inc.'s Android unit has been negotiating with music companies to start a paid subscription music-streaming service akin to Spotify AB, according to people familiar with the matter. Separately, Google's YouTube video website is trying to obtain licenses from music labels to start a paid subscription service for music videos and potentially also for audio-only songs, these people said.
Came across an interesting article talking about how the first or second mix of a song, is usually the best one. The video in the replies talking about mixing Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" - which went through 91 mixes and ended up landing on the second one - is compelling audio nerd stuff.
But what happens with each minor “enhancement” is a gradual loss of perspective. I’m sure that by mix 20 they were already so far removed from the first few mixes, but didn’t realize it. They were making small, gradual tweaks. Isn’t that what we do? We keep firing open our DAW, making some more tweaks, and saving the session. We think the mix is OK, but it will get better with time. In reality,...
It’s going to be a 12 song album. If I could describe this record in one word, I’d say we made a “rock” album. Its right back to what everyone loves from the Underdog Alma Mater days and that’s a really big deal for our band. We’re planning to release the album the last week of June, we’re pushing for a June 24th release date.

Wednesday night, at Pete Wentz's book signing, a fan caught up with Pete and asked if they were thinking about doing a Take This to Your Grave 10-year anniversary tour. The submitter says Pete responded with, "that's more of Patrick's call. Though we may not have an official tour for that album, we will be playing alot more of those songs on this upcoming tour."
Well, there was certainly some drama last night: Travis Barker (Blink 182) and AJ Maddah (promoter for Soundwave, which Barker is not playing) really had it out on Twitter. A lot of accusations were thrown around, by both sides, before they finally got on the phone and declared it was a "huge" misunderstanding. The post that started it all was an instagram from Travis to his fans apologizing for missing the Australian tour.
