Attack Attack! have had to cancel their remaining March tour dates.
We are super bummed to announce that we have to cancel the shows we had scheduled for March. Wetzel slipped and fell, which tore the cartilage in his already injured left knee. We are very disappointed, but we’re sure you are used to the amazing luck we have as a band. We love you all and promise to make it up to you on our spring headliner!

James Dewees has started a Kickstarter campaign to relaunch Reggie and The Full Effect with new album.
i've spent many years touring with my chemical romance as their keyboard player and over those years i realized that i am without a doubt, a silly person, i write silly music, say silly things, i generally have a very absurd look on life. Reggie, is how i share that silliness with all of you. I've always been honest with my music. Whatever goes on in my life i write music about.

Elano Pizzicarola of LA Weekly, makes the argument that Green Day never sold out, we (the fans) just all got old. Personally, I don't give a shit if a band sells out or whatever (that term stopped meaning anything to most of us years ago), as long as they're making music I like listening to. And well, it's no secret that I think the last three Green Day albums embarass the band's catalog.
They continued to flex their punk muscle even more recently. In 2009, they ripped though a live version of "American Idiot" on Good Day America before a Central Park audience. The band ignited a mosh pit and got the rollicking crowd to chant some of their profane lyrics. Green Day basically gave the...

The AV Club asks: Has the vinyl revival gone too far?
Something happened, though. Record Store Day got big. It became an event. Major labels and mega-successful bands—who were in on the “holiday” from the start—began to play a larger and larger part. The grassroots veneer fell away, and it became more transparent: It had always been a way to herd consumers into stores, devised by an industry that keeps clinging to outmoded models of the past rather than learning to innovate and adapt to new technologies.

Chuck Ragan, Matt Pryor, and the other Revival Tour members share the first song they learned on guitar.
One of the very first songs I learned on guitar was Otis Redding’s ‘(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay,’ taught to me by the same fella who taught me some of the first standard chords I have ever learned, some 25 to 26 years ago. Mr. Roy Ridenour, one of my dad’s buds, used to come over for dinner and pick his guitar with anything from bluegrass to blues to old soul and folk tunes. Wherever you are Roy, thanks for all your patience and positive words that kept me from giving up!

You can check out Punknews.org recent interview with Henry Rollins here.
I am angry all the time. It is not an anger that manifests itself in destruction of property, and I am not looking for a fight, but if you have a sense of right and wrong, and your head is pulled out, there is a lot to be angry about. If you think everything is ok, then to me you're ok with everything, from marriage inequality to people trying to vote down the Violence Against Women Act. You can't let these cowards get away with this stuff.
