Iíll jump to the chase and tell you that I am deeply offended but the idea going around that my love Dee had anything to do with my departure from the band. She, in fact, was the only one to ask me to stay. We had so many talks where I would tell her how I was feeling, we would pray together, and I would leave again to let her fend for herself and smile while she did it. She was nothing but absolutely supportive of my career and never ONCE asked me to leave.

There's some buzz swarming around Nashville's Daisyhead. The band will release its debut 7" I Couldn't Face You via Spartan Records on November 5th (available for pre-order) and will be playing a hometown "record release" show with Balance and Composure and Courtesy Drop on November 7th. Today, we are premiering a new song from that EP titled "Numbing Truth" The complexity and energy on this song is palpable and if you dig bands like B&C and Daylight, then this is for you. Check it out in the replies.
Hear a new song from Silver Snakes entitled "Sundance" here, from their upcoming 7" by the same name. The track will also appear on their upcoming full-length, Year Of The Snake, via Bridge Nine Records. The song falls somewhere between Balance & Composure and O'Brother - check it out.

Today, we are excited to premiere "Tennessee," which can be heard on her AP.net Profile or in the replies. She has spent the last year sharing the stage with bands ranging from Against Me! to Lights.

Following on the heels of their highly publicized Twitter feud, Jimmy Kimmel and Kanye West are set to either reconcile or take the feud to another level face-to-face on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight. Be sure to tune in, as it seems very unlikely that we won't get at least a few classic Kanyeisms out of this appearance.
I mean, I donít really know the kid so I donít really care. I watched some videos of him on tour with his old band and shit. It was cool. Heís got a good voice so itís not like heís not going to be able to fill the shoes, or however you want to put it, but I mean I canít really expect anyone to ever be able to cover the songs that I wrote and actually have me ever like it. Ya know? It doesnít matter if itís good or not, Iím still not going to like it.
