So Jason and I have been kicking around some ideas for the AbsolutePunk Podcast and we thought we'd try out a monthly feature in which we'd try to answer any and all questions posed to us in its accompanying thread. So, have at it - post a question (or questions) you've been dying to know the answers to. We'll be back this Friday with our latest episode featuring Vinnie Caruana of I Am The Avalanche.

I See Stars missed today's New Jersey date on Warped Tour. The reason? An anonymous tip from someone on the tour told me the band was kicked off today's date because they "never unload the stage truck."
Drew Beringer on 07/07/13 - 08:35 PM
This week on the Self Promotion Spotlight I found the lovely Friend Skeletons, an indie tinged punk band from Providence. The band incorporate math-y twinkles, catchy melodies and a general punk vibe into their music and their distinct vocals and organic feel are highly striking. If The Gaslight Anthem and American Football combined, the product could sound a little like this. Download their new EP People on their Bandcamp as 'name your price'. Interested in being a part of the Self-Promotion Spotlight? It's easy, just sign up for an AbsolutePunk.net account and post in the Self-Promotion forum.

David Kennedy (Angels and Airwaves) has started a pretty cool looking coffee roasting company called James Coffee Co.
We offer a revolving assortment of distinctive single-origin beans as well as exclusive James Coffee crafted blends. Using modest production methods we are able to approach each individual roast as an opportunity to elevate and preserve our quality and taste.
