There's new I The Mighty on the horizon - you knew we'd get involved. Since we premiered "Dancing On A Tightrope" way back in '12, the AbsolutePunk community's affection for the band has skyrocketed, and rightfully so - I The Mighty has a chance as greatness. Today we're premiering "Echoes," the latest track from their upcoming full-length, Satori - check it out in the replies. But, that's not all - the band is coming 'round to chat about Satori at 4pm PST, so get all your questions ready for Brent, Blake, Ian, and Chris.

Update: The chat is now over - a tremendous thanks to I The Mighty and Equal Vision Records for their time, and make sure to grab Satori on June 11! -JA

The Wonder Years' new album, The Greatest Generation, has debuted at No. 20 on the Billboard 200 charts with 19,673 units moved in first-week sales. For some perspective: The first time I interviewed the band, they were excitedly reporting first-week sales of The Upsides that came in at 1,852 units. Suburbia I've Given You All and Now I'm Nothing debuted two years ago with 8,100 first-week sales. Congratulations to the band, their management and Hopeless Records!

Hop to the replies to check out my full review of last weekend's Skate and Surf festivities. You all may have heard the negatives about it in our open thread -- but there were some positives to be realized as well.
If Skate and Surf doesnít return next year, weíll know why. It paled in comparison to 2012ís Bamboozle, which on its own wasnít a perfect experience... But if you came to see good bands, you left Six Flags Great Adventure having seen plenty of them.

Harpist Timbre who has worked with The Chariot and more has started an IndieGogo campaign to help fund her new double album, Sun and Moon. The sun disc will feature songs written by Timbre and her band and the moon disc will feature a variety of classical music that she's written, from a harp and oboe duet, to a piece for full orchestra, choir, harp, and solo soprano. Even though they'd like to raise 20K, they've set the goal at a respectable 10K. If you've got a few minutes, give it a look and help out a great musician.

You can check out PureVolume's recent interview with Jared Leto (Thirty Seconds To Mars) here.
I donít know ... but I think that the last album was about conflicts: We had a giant battle with our record company, they sued us for $30 million, we fought them for two years and subsequently made a film about it as well, called Artifact. But it was an album about conflict and survival. And this is an album thatís much more reflective. And it was made without the burden of a giant war on our shoulders, and it was actually really a lot of fun. It was exactly how it should be.

We're incredibly thrilled to bring you an exclusive premiere of boysetsfire video "Closure" off of their upcoming record, While a Nation Sleeps, out June 11th on Bridge 9. It's a mixture of live footage and their journey to help save a youth center in Bavaria. I must say, before you watch this video, that there's a few things you should know about this band. They began with a vision in a small Delaware town. They rallied the youth to participate in social justice issues. And despite their hiatus, when at one point guitarist Josh Latshaw broke his neck in near-paralysis, they've still managed to possess greater stage presence and heart than any of their younger counterparts.
