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.
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.
Head to the replies to listen to a new acoustic demo from Daly's Gone Wrong called "Damn it, Jeff! You Couldn’t Help Yourself." The final version of song will appear on the band's upcoming album, Finding Your Heart Again, which is due out on March 14, 2014.
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.
Check out a video interview with Manchester Orchestra in the replies. Looks like the new album will be named Cope and will be released most likely on April 1, 2014. Andy also hints at an upcoming tour with Kevin Devine.
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.
Anti-Flag and A-F Records have announced Volume 3 of the Split 7-inch series with Akron, OH's Worship This!. 20 Years of Hell: Vol. 3 features two re-recorded and re-envisioned Anti-Flag tracks as well as two re-mastered tracks by Mass Giorgini from the Worship This! A-F Records debut LP, Tomorrow, I'll Miss You. You can stream the re-recording of Anti-Flag's "Wake Up," which originally appeared on Anti-Flag's 2003 LP, The Terror State. You can still purchase a subscription to the vinyl series as well.
We are collaborating with Made of Chalkagain with MoC's live video series Chalk TV. This video captures Max Bemis (of Say Anything) performing "Wow, I Can Get Sexual Too," with the concert goers perspective making their way to one of Chicago's premiere venues Lincoln Hall. Head to the replies to watch it. Be sure to catch Bemis on tour now.
Less Than Jake's music video for "My Money Is on the Long Shot" can be seen over at Fuse. It features cameos from The Swellers, All Time Low, NOFX, Pentimento, The Wonder Years, Falling In Reverse and more.
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.
