If my music wasn't so personal to me, I wouldn't be as motivated to still be making and performing it. By the time it gets to the listener, I am comfortable with whatever reactions anyone might have.
Sponsored by the site Made Man and hosted by comedian Paul F. Tompkins, Speakeasy is a weekly webseries that has Tompkins sit down with a friend over a drink and just chat about whatever. Head to the replies to watch this week's episode, which features guest Bill Hader (Saturday Night Live) and topics such as South Park, trying stand-up and being nominated for an Emmy.
The summer may be winding down, but Yellowcard is just about to kick Ocean Avenue Acoustic into high gear with its upcoming fall tour. To get excited for that, the guys will be dropping by the site on September 3rd at 4 PM EST to talk about its recent acoustic album, the upcoming tour, and anything else.

Head to the replies for the newest installment of "Worst I Ever Bombed," a Late Night With Jimmy Fallon web series chronicling just that. This week features Fallon head writer A.D. Miles and a college gig gone wrong.
As bands like The Story So Far and Man Overboard have risen to the top of the pop-punk totem pole, it's becoming harder and harder for bands to gain traction while presenting a straightforward take on the genre. Currently, Real Friends is proving that you don't have to rewrite the rules to make an impact on young music listeners...but today we have a song stream from a band that I think could follow and exceed that mold. Knuckle Puck delivers a melodic, crunchy offering of a sound that we're all familiar with. It took me a few listens of their new EP, The Weight That You Buried, which drops September 3, to see past the first few layers of their sound. But I think fans of the genre can...
Remember Therefore I Am? That band just did it for me - perfectly-crafted post-hardcore with huge melodies and quality harmonies. That's what I love about City Of Ghosts - the Milwaukee boys deliver that straightforward brand of post-hardcore with raw, yet massive vocals. We've got "Borrowed Wings," the debut single from their upcoming EP, The Calm In The Current - it's all kinds of awesome. Enjoy the jam in the replies and grab the EP from Easy Killer Records in the coming months. Fans of Thrice's Artist In The Ambulance and Crisis-era Alexisonfire should dig this.
Look Mexico have rejoinedTiny Engines and is planning on releasing a new LP in 2014. It is also the 10 year anniversary of the band and to celebrate, they have put their entire discography up for name-your-price download for one week only on Bandcamp.
Dates for Heartsounds' upcoming East Coast tour can be found in the replies. Additionally, the band has confirmed that it's third full-length record will be released on October 15th through Creator-Destructor Records.
We couldn't be more excited to premiere a brand new Pentimento song today. Inside The Sea is the band's new EP set for release on Oct. 22nd on Paper + Plastick Records and this is my favorite EP of the year. Fans of Taking Back Sunday's Where You Want To Be will enjoy this release and the only downside is that it's 4 songs. Listen to "Any Minute Now" in the replies and you can also pre-order the EP now.
ręg łífē is a new project from arrange's Malcom Lacey and Chris Sikofillos. The sample-heavy, sleepy R&B that the pair have produced from opposite coasts so far can be downloaded for free or streamed in the replies.
Head to HungerTV to listen to the first (and self-titled) track from the forthcoming album by The 1975.
