Silverstein has always been one of the more underrated "post-hardcore" bands in our scene. Despite moderate success over the years and some truly fantastic albums, the Ontario quintet has never seemed to garner as much respect or appreciation as their material deserves. With the band releasing its seventh studio album This Is How The Wind Shifts tomorrow (as well as chatting with us later tonight at 5 PM PST / 8 PM EST), I wanted to show some love to the band on this week's "Countdown." The band has evolved and refined its post-hardcore sound over the course of its 13 year career - the band sounds unrecognizable on its debut When Broken Is Easily Fixed. The growth and progress in

Hey y'all... just wanted to say as we approach the 2013 opening of Song Shop that it has been a great honor being able to do this project for the past 4 or 5 years. As of now we have sent out about 3000 songs (crazzzzy) and I couldn't be more proud of the reactions we've been getting. It's beyond fulfilling and I am so thankful to get to know all of you so closely. Many of you guys know my wife Sherri and I are about to have our first daughter, Lucy- even though technically when you buy a song you're paying for a service, you're also giving us as a family a huge...

Pete Wentz was interviewed by The Chicago Tribune last night at Angels & Kings' two year anniversary, where he spoke up about the rumors of Fall Out Boy reuniting. Pete stated "I'd say don't hold your breath that it's happening," despite the rumblings over the past two weeks. With that being said, it's worth noting that the whole band has been seen in Chicago.
"People came out of the woodwork for a little bit," Wentz said of the reaction of his friends and family to the reunion rumor. "But I feel like I'm so far removed. I'm no help. People asked 'Is this happening?' 'I'm not the person that can help you out. All I know is it's not.'"

This week on the Self Promotion Spotlight the excellent Tarantulahawk can be found. The band deal in rabble rousing midwest emo that brings to mind Hot Rod Circuit, if Hot Rod Circuit were an emo band. Their most recent split ...Happy Again is superb and also features Cardinal, a similarly great band. The split is available as 'name your price' on Bandcamp.
