Tyler Oleson, drummer for Modern Life Is War, was arrested on Saturday for allegedly leading Marshalltown, IA, police on a short chase which caused a collision with a squad car. Oleson was initially charged with alluding criminal mischief in the second degree for intentionally slamming on his brakes; aggravated assault for trying to run an officer off the road; and OWI first offense. The investigation is ongoing. The band will not be cancelling or postponing any of its upcoming shows.
The incident began Saturday night when Oleson, who was driving alongside a marked patrol car on Center Street, “basically flipped off the officer,” said Marshalltown police Sgt. Melinda Ruopp. The officer...

This week on the Self Promotion Forum, I came across a post from Mark Garza, the co-owner of Funeral Sounds Records and music blog. Mark is a very good friend of mine and, despite being only fifteen years old, he's doing great things for the music scene with Funeral Sounds. Head over to the label's Bandcamp where great records from the likes of nouns, Surgery In An Opera and Charlotte Light and Dark are available as 'name your price' and check out their blog which covers a lot of little emo and post-hardcore bands. Because of his mantra of trying to cover pretty much every submission he gets and because he's just a really nice guy, make sure you support Mark's work if you like either the...

SURPRISE! Bet you didn't see this one coming. Today we've got a brand new song from The Morning Of called "Holden." It's the classic TMO that we have all come to know and love, and the song is inspired by the book "The Catcher in the Rye." Take a listen in the replies and catch them in NYC at The Webster Hall on September 29.

Brian Bonz (you may know him from Kevin Devine's Goddamn Band) has set up a Kickstarter for his new album.
Misophonia is a project born out of this phase of my life. I'd scored a documentary for PBS about artwork in New York City's subway stations, and much of that material formed the record's blueprint. I experimented with sampling music and found sound, using new programs and abandoning any prior strictures with approaching previous work. Chris Bracco, who produced From Sumi to Japan, returns to collaborate on Misophonia. The Major Crimes continue their trek forward on this one, as well, along with both old and new guest musicians.
