You might recognize their early radio hits, such as "Youth of The Nation", "Alive", and "Boom", as well as placement in numerous films. They've also collaborated with variety of artists like Mike Muir of Suicidal Tendencies, and Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed. Head to the replies to check out the playlist. The band's new acoustic album, SoCal Sessions, is out now.

I recently sat down with Chad Gilbert of New Found Glory, in which we spoke about one of his favorite bands, Madball. We talk about his first experiences with the band, the possibility of new music from Hazen St., and more. You can check it out here.
The first time I saw them live, I actually opened for them. It was Shai Hulud, this local band Brethren, and Madball at Cheers in Miami, around 96'-97'. It was really crazy, the crowd was insane.

We've just published a new episode of the AP.net Podcast, but we're already looking ahead to the next couple weeks of episodes as well. In one of the episodes before our year-ending AOTY discussion, we want to field a lot of AP.net readers' questions -- they don't have to be big-picture or long-form type topics, but really any sort of questions you guys have about the website, music, the industry, etc. Hell, we spent 15 minutes talking about Star Wars in this week's episode, so you don't even really have to restrict it to music. Feel free to leave questions in the replies and Jason, Drew and I will tackle them over the next episode or two!
Thomas Nassiff on 12/04/14 - 02:17 PM
Star Wars, vinyl, and the music industry? Yeah, we've got all that on this week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast. Topics include: The new Star Wars trailer! What do we think? What are we excited about? Why am I so afraid of being burned again!? Then we move into a topic near and dear to all of our hearts: vinyl records and our collections. We answer a fan submitted question about turntables, our buying habits, and why we like the medium. We finish the week off with a talk about the entire Pomplamoose situation and everything that's been swirling around that topic. I mean, everyone else has beaten the moose to death -- we might as well chime in. The episode can be streamed and/or...

Bring Me The Horizon (alongside former guitarist Curtis Ward) performed "Pray For Plagues" last night at a 500-cap show at the Camden Underworld in London, which you can view in the replies. This is likely a one time only sort of thing, so don't expect them to throw this back in the setlist anytime soon.

Lil Wayne has taken to twitter to announce yet another delay of Tha Carter V. This time though, he lays the blame squarely at the feet of his label and long time mentor/benefactor Birdman, claiming he and his creativity are prisoners. Pusha T (in a Suge Knight voice) chimed in telling Wayne to move to G.O.O.D. Music if he "wants to drop albums & don't want ur CEO rubbing they hands all in your videos."
Ryan Dennehy on 12/04/14 - 01:35 PM
Weezer bounced through Austin on Tuesday December 2nd to play a not-surprisingly sold out show for local radio station 101X's holiday party. The band took the stage a tore through a stacked set in just an hour and a half. While Rivers Cuomo wasn't the most enthused version of himself, fans went away happy, especially those who had picked up and fallen in love with the band's newest album Everything Will Be Alright in The End. Take a peek at a few photos from the show in the comments, as well as a link to a full gallery.

In a recent interview with The Fader, Andre 3000 says that he "felt like a sell out" on the OutKast reunion tour.
"I felt like people would be like, 'Y'all are doing all these festivals, y'all are just doing it for money.' And I felt like a sell-out, honestly. So I was like, if I'm in on the joke, I'll feel cool about it."

Kevin Devine has posted a lengthy, and quite good, piece on Facebook.
Iím a straight white male, and I donít know what itís like not to be. I should never be the loudest voice in this conversation. I think we (people like me) all have deep listening to do if we have any hope at making the people who arenít us feel safe, valued, equal in this society. We have real & increased responsibility to bear as the power brokers, which we are, and have been. Anyone arguing otherwise, suggesting that weíre a ďpost-racialĒ society etc., is skirting offensiveness at worst andÖsticking to a willful & highly selective understanding of Americaís history, at best. Itís not hard for me to empathize with...

Buddha's rough and punk yet cute, but also disgusting material, provides an early window into what we now know as a world wide phenomena.
