Anberlin stalk you! Seriously. This week Anberlin are our guests on the AP.net Podcast and we talk about a little bit of everything: the band's change of record labels, the re-release of Vital, what happens when a band remembers that I don't think "Adelaide" fits on Cities all that well ... and so much more. It's one of the most laid back and fun conversations we've had yet, and I think if you're a fan of the band it's a must listen.

Kanye West's Yeezus tour continues to be plagued by equipment issues, this time due a crash en route to Vancouver involving one of the tour's equipment trucks. According to Kanye's publicist the accident damaged the tour's "custom-made video truss and 60-ft circular LED screen" so badly that the gear is "beyond repair." As a result, last night's Vancouver show was postponed as well as the shows scheduled for Denver and Minneapolis. There is no word yet as to whether more dates of the tour will be affected.

New FAA guidelines will soon allow us to use e-books, listen to music, or watch videos on devices in "airplane mode" during take off.
Passengers can use e-book readers, play games and watch videos on devices, and can hold gadgets during both take-off and landing, or else stow them in the seatback pocket. These gadgets need to be in Airplane Mode or have cell service turned off during both landing and taxi/take-off, but you can actually use Wi-Fi during your flight and continue to use Bluetooth accessories connected to your phone.

Undesirable People...you are a cool band. You have the twinkly emo parts that make the Topshelf crowd happy, you have the modern pop-punk/alternative parts a fan of No Sleep, Pure Noise, or Run For Cover would be into, and at times you have the soulful vocals that would please fans of Squid The Whale and the like. The band's upcoming release is coming out on South Division Records. Listen to "Alive In Your Grave" in the replies.
Suicide Silence will enter the studio next week with producer Steve Evetts (Every Time I Die, The Dillinger Escape Plan). The effort is tentatively due out next summer on Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
This record will be the grittiest, most meaningful piece of work we've ever stood behind. We cannot wait for everyone to hear it. Steve Evetts is someone we've worked closely with for a long while, not only on The Black Crown, but also on some instrumental demos just prior to the tragedy last Fall. Here we are a year later prepping to record the nastiest, heaviest, most disgusting work we've ever done. Expect the unexpected. This is for Mitch.
