Whilst reading the comments from many of our lovely AP.net users on a recent article written on Wondering Sound regarding the lack of women on the Warped Tour, I became quite surprised by the reactions that our user base was having. Responses varied from statements suggesting that it's reasonable for Warped Tour to be lacking in women as there aren't many women in the scene all the way to users stating their outright hatred of all things feminist. It was not surprising to see debate about the issue - feminism and women's rights are certainly a particularly divisive topic on the internet at the moment. However, what I found difficult to accept was that folks were more willing to attack...
Zero Platoon recently filmed a couple acoustic performances of Driver Friendly.

“There’s really not a lack of women,” he [Kevin Lyman] says, interrupting me before I’ve finished asking the first question. “If you’ve got 20 bands that have women in them out of 120 bands, that’s one out of six bands.”
“You think that’s OK?” I ask, surprised that he would be so comfortable with such a one-sided ratio.
“That’s absolutely OK,” he says.
Update: Kevin Lyman has posted a variety of responses on Twitter.
I encourage @mseling to start her own music festival, she has good taste in music and seems to have it figured out.

A while back news surfaced about an Aphex Twin record titled Caustic Window from 1996 that never saw the light of day. Thanks to Kickstarter, now it has, and the results can be streamed in the replies via Revolt.
Today Sum 41's Deryck Whibley dropped the "Lavigne" from his name - which he secretly got added on after marrying pop star Avril Lavigne in 2006. A judge granted the name change recently, as reported here.
The rocker’s request to drop Avril’s name was stamped on Thursday. As we first revealed, Whibley had secretly taken her name during their 2006 marriage … to become Deryck Jason Lavigne Whibley. Deryck’s name change was filed a few months after Lavigne married Nickelback frontman Chad Kroger … which is probably not a coincidence. The fact Deryck has a new fiancée probably influenced the change too.
Today we're proud to premiere the brand new video for And We Danced's "The Ring." In case you missed the first post about this band, it features Zaq Zrust (formerly of Cadillac Blindside) and Jeremy Tappero (formerly of The Stereo and The Jealous Sound). The song comes from the band's upcoming album Back to the Middle which is available for pre-order right now on Paper + Plastick Records. Less reading, more listening.
Want to hear a new song from Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!? I thought so. Head to the replies to check out "Good For You", which can be found on the band's re-issue of their latest record, Pardon My French, out on Fearless Records - you can pre-order it here.
But this isn't just a Bonnaroo problem, even if that festival's admirably devoted fanbase has a particular grudge against Kanye and a higher-than-average number of gay fish-themed signs in its midst. It’s everyone’s problem: It’s our problem that we still think that calling someone gay is an inherently OK way to insult them. More than that, people need to get over the three things Kanye West did in 2009 that they thought were lame, and pay attention to what he's doing now. You might like it. Even if you hate it, maybe you'll at least find something better to make fun of than the one...
Listen to Jessie Ware's brand new single "Tough Love", which was produced by BenZel, in the replies.
“I had just finished a run of shows in the States and went to NY to work with BenZel for a couple weeks, mainly as a different focus to touring. I didn’t have any expectations or pressures with what would come out of those two weeks, and think ‘Tough Love’ sums this up. It was me experimenting with my voice and having fun with it. It just felt right and kind of dictated the route of the next album, much like ‘Devotion’ did on my first album” – Jessie Ware
