Dan Andriano from Alkaline Trio will release Party Adjacent on July 17, 2015.
“The Emergency Room started as something for me to do with songs I had been writing that didn’t seem to have a place on Alkaline Trio records,” explains Andriano. Started when he found himself living in Florida, he released his debut full-length Hurricane Season on Asian Man in 2011 and toured troubadour-style around the release with just an acoustic guitar on the US and European legs of the Revival Tour. Party Adjacent marks the beginning of a new chapter to the Emergency Room story. Produced by Jeff Rosenstock, formerly of Bomb the Music Industry, Andriano is joined by a backing band of Jeff, Kevin Higuchi...

The bassist of Lionfight went on a racist rant and was kicked out of the band. The band has released a statement:
Today an ex band member of lionfight decided on his own to say some really shocking and racist remarks on his personal page. Not only did he offend many, including the other band members, he set back the social clock greatly by his ignorant remarks. We say ex because we cannot have that mindset and mouthpiece be a representative of us personally or what we’ve worked so damn hard for. Bryan will no longer be playing music with us. We love him like a brother and we will always be there to pick him up when he falls but we cannot move forward with him being a part of this. He...

You may be familiar with Matthew Mayfield's smooth southern-rock sound, but it's always had an acoustic backbone. Recently, Mayfield has cast aside his acoustic guitar and resurrected his full-fledged rock project, The Blue Cut Robbery. The result is an expertly produced, hard hitting EP they call Coquette, which hosts some of the best sounding guitar licks I've heard in years. Today, we're proud to bring you the video premiere for the exceptional second track on that EP, "Nashville, TN." If you're into Pearl Jam or The Gaslight Anthem, you'll feel right at home. Check out the video in all its face-melting glory in the replies and be sure to pick up the EP here!

When you only have two weeks, you can’t take three days off just to drive and play a badass L.A. show. So, we took two days off total [during the tour], and played shows every other night. We didn’t break up because we hated each other or because we hated playing music. We broke up because we literally didn’t have the capacity and the schedule to do stuff.

Twelve years ago, Ryan Adams was performing at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, when a fan decided to heckle Ryan to play Bryan Adams' forever timeless hit, "Summer of '69." Ryan Adams twelve years ago didn't care too much for this, ripping into the concert attendee and kicking him out of the show (refunding his money of course). That brings us to last night, where Ryan was playing the Ryman Auditorium once again, this time in a better state of mind and better spirit. Ryan finally covered Bryan's hit song just a mere 12 years later to the fans approval -- the video is in the replies.

Banner Pilot are having a lot of van issues right now.
Update: the van will not be fixed today. Secured a one-day van rental here in Nurnberg. While we picked it up, the other guys started bringing all our stuff down from the apartment we were staying at to the street. Idea being, we'll pull up and take off right away for Weisbaden. We show up, and find out that somehow the door closed behind them while taking a load downstairs. The guy's only key is locked inside. So now we are driving to his grandparents' house to get the spare key. 40 minutes round trip.
Once we get the key, and get back to his apartment, and get the rest of the stuff, and get on the road, and get to Wiesbaden, and...

Laura Jane Grace mashed up Michael McDonald and The Cure for AV Club.
While we were there, she played a stripped-down version of “Pretty Girls (The Mover)” and gave us some insight to the song’s creation and ongoing evolution. After that, though, she offered up a truly unexpected bonus track: a plaintive take on Michael McDonald’s 1982 hit “I Keep Forgettin’” with a drum loop of The Cure’s “Close To Me” as the backbeat.

Our friends over at Stereogum posted their "Top 10 Brand New Songs" and while most "let's make a list of something" articles being posted up on internet are worthless (ok, this one is pretty worthless too), at least it gives us a chance to argue about something.
