If you're a fan of heavier music, you do not want to miss this premiere today. We have an early stream of Barrow's stunning new album Though I'm Alone, a nine-track auditory assault that will leave you begging for more.

Stream it at the band's AP.net profile and pre-order the record here via Mayfly Records.

We thought it'd be cool to commemorate it with a few things, one of them being bringing Scott Wade back on vocals for some dates. We'll do a few shows and festivals playing songs off of Turn It Around as well as Wake The Dead in...

Under The Gun recently interviewed William Control (Aiden) and talked about writing two novels, his upcoming solo album, and his band's new album.
There will be one more Aiden album, mainly because I feel I left things on such a cliff in the midst of finishing our contract with Victory (Records). And like I said, Iím not the same kid that started Aiden anymore, but I do love Aiden and jumping around on stage. Itís a young manís game though, and Iím not a young man anymore, you know? Warped Tour is a young manís game. I want to appease the audience that has been with me and followed us for so long, but at the same time I feel sort of like a liar singing those songs on stage that I wrote...

Alter The Press recently interviewed Allstar Weekend. They discussed the band's new project, what they would (or wouldnít) do differently, and the ĎHey Princessí video that no one is ever going to see.
Obviously there are really talented musicians out there that never get a break but there are definitely a lot of people that get really easy jumps to overnight success. Weíre somewhere in the middle.
