We recently interviewed ex-Against Me! bassist Andrew Seward about this newest musical project, which happens to be a band called Human Parts. The group is officially releasing it's self-titled debut next week on September 10th.
When I parted ways with Against Me! I kind of started working all day and when I’d come home my whole goal was to not just become a sloth and play video games or stuff like that. I wanted to be a good father and partner and just be creative whenever I could. And that’s what I did, I just started focusing and using my spare time to record.

Even though letlive. released its intense new album, The Blackest Beautiful, back in July, the band didn't get to properly celebrate it because they were on Warped Tour all summer.

Even better news - we're giving away a pair of tickets to the party tomorrow. Check the details in the replies to see how you can win.

Fiona Apple has released a statement regarding the reports of her leaving the stage early during a recent set.
if it wouldn’t be too much trouble, if you could tweet to the twits who call themselves journalists(example Chris Martins of sit-and-Spin Magazine) that I FINISHED MY SET!!! I did my job, and they should do theirs too–They all miss the fact that there is a difference between the back-of-the-room-chatter that is simply annoying,–and the operatic drunken blather, or the heckling that is really just INTERRUPTING that makes it impossible for us to do our jobs. I hope your readers are already hip to the fact that they are consistently lied to… no apologies. -Fiona.

Don't expect Justin Vernon to write another Bon Iver record anytime soon. He recently told TripleJ that he doesn't "really write songs anymore." Vernon's other project, Volcano Choir, released its new album, Repave, today.
"I don't really write songs anymore," he said. "The last Bon Iver record was a very 'sitting down with a guitar and writing' kind of record. I really have to be in a specific headspace to even begin to illuminate an idea that would create another Bon Iver record, and I'm just not there. I'm really honoured that Bon Iver gives me a platform to do whatever I want, but there's only so much time you can spend digging through yourself before you become insular. I'm not in...

Finally. My favorite time of the year is here - the leaves change colors, the wind gets a bit brisker for hoodie weather, and football is on television all weekend. Another perk of the fall is how many great albums are releasing this month and beyond. In fact, September is so stacked with anticipated releases that I asked a couple of staff members to add in their own blurbs to we could cover more ground and I wouldn't break my "Countdown" rules. So check out our most anticipated albums for the month of September in the replies and let us know what you're really excited for in the ninth month of 2013.
