In one of the more unique features we've done recently, we teamed up with community member Explode to present one of his favorite artists, Matthew Mayfield, to the website. Explode reviewed his new EP, Irons In The Fire, and his 2011 LP, Now You're Free. With the reviews, Explode also interviewed Mayfield and incorporated his answers into his review. We're bringing you a stream of his new EP, which has a unique blend of modern alternative rock with a southern flair. My best comparison is Switchfoot meets The Fray with this powerful yet sometimes fragile delivery like Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem. Listen to the EP in the replies.

I've wanted an official AbsolutePunk.net podcast for a while. I love listening to podcasts, I love doing them (you may remember user anamericangod and I had a brief podcast run), but we just never had the time or resources to really commit to doing one on the site. That all changes today. I am extremely proud to introduce the first episode of the AbsolutePunk.net Podcast. We were fortunate enough to have Max Bemis of Say Anything to be our first guest and we recorded so much great stuff that we divided it up into three separate episodes, with the first one premiering today and the other two being released over the course of the next two weeks every Friday. We talked to Max about the...

You can read Under The Gun Review's recent interview with Will Pugh (Cartel) here.
Oh, absolutely. We’ve been talking around that idea for probably the last year or so. Like, “Are we going to do a Chroma tour now or are we going to wait until 10 years?” You know, this is the tenth year of Cartel. In October it will be ten years since we recorded The Ransom EP. So we thought “Well could we get away with just a ten year anniversary? We’d just play Chroma and a collection of other stuff. What are we going to do?” So we said, “screw it, we’ll just wait.” We’re close enough. It’ll definitely happen.
