Please welcome Cody Nelson, whom is our newest addition to the AbsolutePunk.net staff. He'll be focusing on bringing comedy content to the site, such as reviews, interviews, and weekly round-up. It's an area I've wanted to cover on the site for a while, especially with all the interest in stand-up and the like in our Entertainment forum.

An interview with Justin Timberlake's manager outlines the entire process of releasing his new album. There's a lot of insider-baseball stuff in there, but it's quite interesting to read.
I like to do this thing where we do a countdown clock and then deliver music from it -- so what are we gonna deliver? At one point we even talked about having the countdown clock go into streaming the whole album, but then obviously we had to have conversations with the label and partners who wanted to be involved with the release of his music. So we ended up compromising and putting a single out and shortening the window to the album [release], because [usually artists] put the single out then wait...

Motion City Soundtrack drummer Tony Thaxton has left the band. Claudio Rivera (Saves the Day) will be filling in.
Our beloved drummer Tony Thaxton has decided to leave the band. We really hate to see him go, but we fully support him in his choice and wish him the absolute best in the future. Tony’s contribution to the band over the last 11+ years was immeasurable, both on the stage and off. We’re really glad to have been able to share some truly amazing times with such a great drummer and friend. He will be missed.

Here are a few words from Tony:

“I’m afraid the time has come for me to move on from Motion City Soundtrack. This was an extremely, extremely hard decision to make,...

Metro Station have set up an indiegogo campaign for a new EP. I'm not one to usually make jokes about these things ... but shouldn't some of that "Achy Breaky Heart" fuck-you-money help fund this? Or did they boot that guy out of this band? I'm confused. Anyway ... um ... yeah.

The Wonder Years have released an album trailer for The Greatest Generation, which drops May 14 via Hopeless Records. In it, the band explains the meaning behind the album's title and talks a bit about the album writing and recording process. There's video of the guys in the studio and there's a new song clip in there, taken from the opening track "There, There." Check it out in the replies. Oh, and they've also updated their website.
I wanna be remembered for more than this. I think we all do. See, people say the greatest generation has come and gone, but they're wrong. They haven't seen what we're capable of.
