BuzzFeed is claiming this to be the ultimate "late 90's to early 00's pop-punk" mashup ... the result? Nostalgic as fuck. I am pretty sure I can name every single song.

All sorts of numbers for all of us chart geeks today. Bruno Mars has climbed to the top of the charts this week, moving 95,000 copies of his latest album (bringing his total about 40k short of going platinum). Atoms for Peace come in at number two selling 50k copies of Amok. Mumford and Sons round out the top three with another 43,000 copies of Babel, which has now passed the 2 million mark. Overall album sales in this week totaled 5.79 million units, up 6% compared with the sum last week and down 9% compared with the comparable sales week of 2012 (6.33 million). Year to date album sales stand at 50.36 million, down 7% compared to the same total at this point last year. All the other...

Heroes For Hire vocalist Brad Smith has left the band. Guitarist Duane Hazell is stepping up as frontman. A lengthy statement from Hazell can be found below.
This will be the first and last thing I am going to say about everything that's going on right now regarding Heroes For Hire. To everyone saying that there are no original members left in Heroes For Hire and that we are just using the band name to promote a completely new band: I can't even remember how many years ago it was exactly that I joined Heroes For Hire, but if I had to guess, I'd say it was about 5 or 6 years ago. Before I officially joined, I was filling in on bass guitar at a few small local shows due to their...

Our interview with The Acacia Strain can be read here. They're currently still on tour as direct support for Every Time I Die, so check them out if they hit your city.
Rise is great. I mean, we've had them do more for us in the one year we've been signed to them than the other labels have done in the other 6 years we've been signed. They're really personable, they're literally a phone call away, as opposed to going through all these different channels just to talk to your own record label. They treat us like human beings, you know?

When Aaron Marsh puts his stamp of approval on a project, that's when you know you should pay attention. In the case of Chicago's Valaska, the moniker for the Windy City's Dave Valdez, you should get to know this guy...and fast. Channeling the likes of Analog Rebellion, Sleeping At Last, and Deas Vail, Valaska brings a ukelele and electronic laden track that's got lots of different feels to it. Listen to the single "Golden Age" on his AP.net profile or listen in the replies.
