Ben Gibbard was one of many musicians to audition for The Postal Service - watch some of the other musicians who tried out - like Tom DeLonge. And Nate Mendel. And a bunch others that I don't want to give away.

We Are The Wild Things is an upstart pop/rock group hailing from Canada. The band's sound falls right into the mix of early The Maine, Artist Vs. Poet, and other great acts that feature sugary hooks and great pop sensibility without losing its authenticity. The group's new EP, Amour, comes out March 12th but you can stream "Quit Running Away" on the band's AP.net profile or in the replies.

A little information about the direction of the new Rise Against album came out in a new interview with RMP Magazine.
Iíve been missing some of the heavy and fast and screamy parts we used to do more often, maybe something like that, something a little more raw and exposed, we still have that fire inside us and weíre unapologetic about it.

Under The Gun recently spoke with Cody Votolato (Blood Brothers) about the 10 year anniversary of Burn, Piano Island, Burn and much more.
Honestly, I think everything is possible, but I do not think itís something that is totally likely in the near future. It comes up every once in while, with people asking us if we plan to return, or offers come in reunite, but it never seems to be the right time. Everyone has other stuff going on, but I think that it is something that could eventually happen. Iím not sure how much older we could get and still do it though [laughs]. An older version of Blood Brothers? Iím not sure that would be any good. Anything is possible though.

A variety of events has hinted strongly at Fall Out Boy doing more touring in Europe this coming April. Pete Wentz stated on stage at the recent London show "we'll be back for Reading/Leeds ... or maybe sooner - wink wink." And then a day after the band was interviewed by a French radio station, OuiFM, the station mentioned the band would be playing L'Oympia in Paris in April.

Grimes has posted a "How to Make Music for (Almost) Free" tutorial.
