Last year we asked you to submit questions in a news thread for our staff members, and we took those questions and answered them in a lengthy interview, broken into a couple parts. Well, that time has come again. We're asking the AP.net community to submit questions in the replies for us to answer. It's alright to submit questions for particular staff members, but do try to keep your questions broad. Have fun!

Our interview with Mark Hoppus can be found here.
Iíve never cared when people thought we were just a joke band. We always have just done our thing and written what we like and what was important to us. Luckily, people have stood by us. I feel like the people that marginalized Blink back in the day have now seen that we actually have staying power, and itís kind of a good feeling.

After a six-year wait, we're finally getting a new LP from New Bedford's A Wilhelm Scream. Lucky for us, the wait was well worth it. All Partycrasher does is prove that A Wilhelm Scream is the best technical punk band in the world right now, so we're extremely happy to be bringing you an exclusive stream of a new song from the record. It's almost unfair how this band can effortlessly blend some of the most interesting musicianship in punk rock with furiously fast tempos and anthemic choruses to boot, but "Devil Don't Know" does this perfectly Ė stream the track in the replies right now and preorder the album from No Idea Records if you like what you hear.

I had the opportunity to talk with Mark Hoppus this week and he had the following to say about the next Blink-182 record. Check back Monday for the full interview.
It seemed Neighborhoods was a pretty natural progression from the Untitled record, even though it was eight years later, and then I know some of Tomís Angels & Airwaves influences were in there as well. Do you see the next record going in that direction, continuing that stuff, or do you see it veering off and doing something completely different?

For me, personally, obviously we still have to get into the studio and hash everything out, but I want to push it edgier. I want to push it a little faster, a little harder. I...

This week on the 20th episode (wow we made it to 20!) of the AbolutePunk.net Podcast, Jason and I talk with Buddy Nielsen of Senses Fail. Buddy has always been one of the most blunt and honest musicians I've ever talked to and on this episode we talk music, the industry, and the life of a band. Do you do it for the money? What happens after you get your one shot?

Spin is reporting that Greg Ginn has lost his lawsuit against Flag and Henry Rollins.
Black Flag founder Greg Ginn has lost his lawsuit against FLAG, the spinoff band featuring founding singer Keith Morris and longtime bassist Chuck Dukowski. While FLAG ó which also features OG members Dez Cadena and Bill Stevenson, and Descendants guitarist Stephen Egerton ó has been out destroying shows like this Redondo Beach Moose Lodge thrasher, Ginn has reformed his own Black Flag unit (this one still called Black Flag) and hit some festivals here and there. Henry Rollins isn't involved in either, but somehow he was named in the lawsuit.
