Sharks have broken up.
We're sorry to announce that the four of us have decided to end our journey as Sharks.

Unfortunately all of our upcoming dates have been cancelled and we have no plans as of yet to play any final shows. We sincerely apologise to anyone who has bought tickets or were planning to buy tickets to any of these shows. On a positive note, we have just finished making a brand new music video for 'Gold' with our good friend Tom Lacey, which we'll be releasing for all of you in the coming weeks. We will also be holding a sale on all of the remaining Sharks shirts we have available, none of which will be re-printed.

We want to thank all of you for the incredible...

Today we're streaming a new track called "This Is Your Brain On Love" from Houston, TX duo Fox & Cats. This is the title track from the group's upcoming EP set for release July 23rd, and trying to think of a way to describe them became sort of a challenge for me, although one I enjoyed because the song is a solid listen. Imagine pop song structure but with the influence of The Front Bottoms and Weatherbox. The song is also available for free download. Listen to it in the replies.

Track listing
1) Thoughts
2) This Is Your Brain On Love

PureVolume recently interviewed Justin Pearson Mars of Retox about the band's new album, the genesis of the band, and where he think technology is leading all of us.
It's just people's people's uneducated opinions on how we sound and our uneducated opinion on how other things are. I read so many times in reviews for the Locust, "I love the keyboards" when it's actually the bass or guitar. That's not the listeners' fault or necessarily a criticism because even with RETOX it's not as obvious as a song with structure from, say, the Ramones. When the Locust released Plague Soundscapes and we kind of blew up a bit people were like, "I can do this with one hand, that's garbage." I wanted to...

BuzzFeed have posted the top 36 (what a random number) pop-punk albums you need to hear before you die.
New Found Glory were kind of like the Walmart version of Blink-182. But they did manage to produce that song ďMy Friends Over You,Ē which if you can believe it or not has gone on to inspire a whole crop of new pop punk bands, like Set Your Goals and The Wonder Years, so thatís pretty cool.

Back in February, I had the chance to sit down and talk to Keith Buckley of Every Time I Die about the impending 10th anniversary of the band's beloved second album, Hot Damn!, as well as other ETID-related topics. I was planning on posting that interview around this time to coincide with the actual anniversary date. But since we started this podcast, I thought I'd just give you guys the real deal and upload the audio from that conversation and turn this into the sixth episode of the AbsolutePunk.net Podcast. It's similar in nature to the podcast Jason posted a few weeks ago with Ryan Key.

Anyways, this episode is a blast, as you can imagine. As always, you can subscribe to this...
