I can do this.

Kelly DohertyI saw The National live this week, therefore Trouble Will Find Me is on repeat at the moment. McCafferty's new single "Trees" and Tom Odell's Long Way Down are also wonderful.

This week on the Self Promotion Forum, I discovered the lovely Townhouses, an emo/post-hardcore four piece from Southampton, PA. Townhouses have a fresh, modern emo feel but with the occasional dalliance with 90s indie rock and post-rock. If Moving Mountains were an emo band, Townhouses would certainly be on the same footing as them. Their recent EP, Keepsakes is available on their Bandcamp as 'name your price', so there's no excuse to not check them out! Interested in being a part of the Self-Promotion Spotlight? It's easy, just sign up for an AbsolutePunk.net account and post in the Self-Promotion forum.

mewithoutYou's Rick Mazotta was robbed at the Best Western in Bismark, ND. You can read an account of the incident on Yelp.
Around 5:54 am on June 27th 2013, my girlfriend was shaking me awake screaming that there was a man in our room, she saw a shadow rummaging through our bags. Immediately, instincts to protect her and another friend of mine had kicked in and I was off and running. What would have been otherwise undetected episode turned into a physical altercation. I was able to kick the man towards the door and it was then we both fell and he got up and took off.

Fall Out Boy's Joe Trohman recently sat down with MusicRadar.
"A couple of days later, I was talking to Patrick, and I had already prepared a list of stipulations for me to do the band again, and before I could even say them, he already had my list in his head. He kind of disarmed me. After a very long phone call – I kept looking at the phone, which was edging on the three-hour mark – I was like, 'Yeah, I'm in. Let's do it.' And then I started writing heavily after I hung up."

PureVolume recently interviewed Rob Aston of Transplants about the band's new album and what it's like working with Travis Barker and Tim Armstrong.
Here I am talking to my best friend and he's fresh out of a plane crash, and he's talking about the possibility of us doing another album—and I was so on board because how can you not be on board with the type of perseverance and motivation that Travis has? He's literally lying in a hospital bed with skin melting off his body in ridiculous amounts of pain and he's talking about maybe we should do another album so I was like, "fuck it, let's go." I just hate the fact that it took something as horrible as that plane crash to happen for us to...

Cerce have changed its name to lovechild and have parted ways with its frontwoman, Becca Cadalzo. The band will still be releasing out its final record this fall.

When we brought you "Time Erases Time (Strung Out)," people went bananas for Night Verses. By now, you should have long since purchased their great full-length, Lift Your Existence - but just in case you've deprived yourself of great music, we're streaming the entire record, for today only. This is the only place you'll find the full album stream, so savor it, then buy Lift Your Existence on iTunes or Big Cartel. After that, catch the band on tour this August with My Ticket Home and I Am King - dates in the replies.

California's The Sheds are one of the most exciting young bands to emerge from the pop-punk scene recently. Playing with the intensity of Boys Night Out along with the melody of a band like The Wonder Years, this quintet will turn heads with its new full length, I'll Be Fine, in stores July 23rd via Mediaskare. While we will be streaming that album in full in the coming weeks, today we're giving you a delicious taste with the premiere of "Writer's Block." It's my personal favorite on the album and will definitely get your feet moving. Check it out in the replies or at the band's AP.net profile. After you dig the song, make sure you pre-order it here.
