Reports are coming in that Pussy Riot may soon be free.
We’ve just spoken to Pyotr Verzilov, husband of imprisoned member Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, who is confirming the rumors about both members, Nadya and Maria Alyokhina, being freed under the amnesty bill being submitted by the Kremlin to parliament to mark the Russian constitution’s 20th anniversary on Thursday. Nadya’s father Andrei has also been able to confirm this from “reliable sources.”

“It’s from the Kremlin and official already, they will be freed,” Pyotr told us today. Though he added, “We do not know yet when this will happen, because it is unclear when the bill will be voted by the Duma and how fast it will be applied to...

Formed only a year ago, Head For Cover recently released their debut album, Last Year's Dead Weight. Today, we are streaming the whole thing. Hit the replies to check it out. Fans of the more pop-punk/melodic parts of A Day To Remember or Four Year Strong should enjoy this one. The band has already been on tour with the likes of Hawthorne Heights and Set It Off, but their sound leans more toward the pop-punk side of the spectrum.

Head to the replies to watch Morrissey's three-song performance at the Nobel Peace Prize concert in Oslo last night. He performed "People Are The Same Everywhere", his new track - Lou Reed's "Satellite Of Love" and "Irish Blood, English Heart".

According to multiple news submissions, at the Max Bemis show tonight he mentioned a "spoiler" about how Say Anything would be touring for the 10th anniversary of ... Is A Real Boy and they'd play that album in full. Sign me up.

Holy shit. Steven Klein has been kicked out of New Found Glory.
It is with heavy hearts that we must let you know that Steve Klein is no longer a part of New Found Glory. We’ve had our differences with Steve over the years that have led us to this decision. We love Steve however personal differences have guided this decision and we no longer feel we can work with him. Rest assured that New Found Glory will still go on! After the Parahoy Cruise we are planning to write a new record and start this new chapter for our band. We have not decided on who will fill Steve’s position however we will let you know our plans as soon as we figure that out. We love you, our fans, so much and...

Max Bemis' next foray into comics will be Evil Empire, a 16-issue series from Boom! Studios launching on March 5.
The series finds a controversial rapper named Reese rising up to fight a growing menace that threatens to turn a world very much like our own into the type of oppressed society found in numerous sci-fi tales.

James Murphy will be releasing a live album of the final LCD Soundsystem show at Madison Square Garden.
I mixed it significantly differently than the film [Shut Up and Play the Hits], because the film is mixed for your eye and the record is mixed for your ears. The film is mixed digitally, because you have to watch it in a theater and make little adjustments all through for a four-hour film, whereas the record is just mixed analog to tape, the way I normally do.

When GoldieBlox pulled the parody of the Beastie Boys' song "Girls" from their toy commercial, I thought that would be the end of it. I was wrong. The Beastie Boys have now sued the toymaker for copyright and trademark infringement and demanded a jury trial.

Spotify's mobile app has "gone free," but the only way to listen to your music sure sounds awful.
The smartphone app, however, doesn't work exactly like the PC service. Users can access their playlists and music albums, but they have to scroll through their lists randomly using a "Shuffle Play" button. Users can't pick the exact song they want to play right away, and will have to shuffle through their playlists.

I mean, I could describe Sianvar with music writer's toolbox of buzzy adjectives, but listing the line-up should suffice. You've got Dance Gavin Dance's Will Swan, A Lot Like Birds' Joe Arrington and Michael Littlefield, Hail The Sun's Donovan Melero, and Stolas' Sergio Medina; five guys with signature sounds, teaming up for something that accentuates their individual talents while creating something a bit different than you'd expect. Their self-titled EP releases January 5, but we've got "Chest Pressure" today - take a listen in the replies, pre-order the EP on their BandCamp, & catch the band on tour with A Lot Like Birds, Stolas, and The Venetia Fair next month.
