In a special (belated) The Countdown article today, I'll be ranking my five most anticipated releases for tomorrow's Record Store Day. For vinyl collectors like myself, Record Store Day is our holiday - a day where limited and rare records we thought we might never own can finally be ours. It's also a great day to get foot traffic into your local stores, which is the hook of RSD. It's a fun day to spend with fellow collectors and joining in 'the hunt' for that rare piece. In the replies you'll find my five most anticipated releases. You can see what is all releasing tomorrow here. Also, make sure to include the releases you're excited for tomorrow in the replies as well.

We told you last week about The Wonder Years' pop-up shop going on in Philadelphia during the release week for The Greatest Generation, and now the band has released tickets for each night. The tickets are free - you just have to print them out and bring them with you to the event. However, they are limited, and the final night (featuring an acoustic Wonder Years performance, meet-and-greet and signings) is almost "sold out." Head to the replies to see what's going down each night.

Eisley have started a kickstarter to help fund their upcoming tour.
We have ambitious plans for touring in 2013 and beyond. We expect this upcoming album to be our most successful record yet, and we want to be able to play in front of every single person that will to listen to us.

Specifically, we will be supporting Say Anything on their Rarities Tour this Summer (See dates). But, this is going to be more difficult than ever, since we not only have to support ourselves on these tours, but we have four beautiful new mouths to feed, safely transport, and care for. This...

I had the pleasure of spending some time in the studio with Rochester, NY's Scholar while they recorded their full-length debut, which is due out in July. The up-and-coming pop punkers are reminiscent of Rufio, Slick Shoes and old Blink 182. I filmed their recording process and teamed up with the band to create a lyric video to share with you all.

RollingStone's article on the return of Fall Out Boy is now online.
Folie Deux was intended to be a commentary about the narcissism of American culture, but frontman Patrick Stump feels it didn't quite work. "I think a lot of that last record cycle was my fault," he says. "I had an actual dream about what the record should sound like. I tried to make that happen, but nobody was with me. I was trying to push my agenda, and that was a weird thing to do."
