It looks as though Defeater has parted ways with guitarist Jay Maas.
Over the weekend it was decided to move forward as a band without the participation of Jay Maas due to personal & creative differences. All scheduled Defeater shows and tours will go on as planned and we wish Jay luck in his future endeavors. Thank you

William Bedell, writing for Motherboard, about building a botnet to rack up thousands of fraudulent plays on Spotify:
If they want to save the profitability of streaming, both independent artists and advertisers should call on music streaming services to combat streaming fraud however possible. Spotify and other services could accomplish this by taking listener authenticity seriously, and perhaps by splitting revenues more fairly.

Big Joanie have launched an Indiegogo campaign to fund their next release.
Big Joanie have only existed for just under two years but in that time we played to packed shows across London and earned a name for ourselves as a black feminist punk band. We would like to make more of an impact outside London across the UK and hopefully in the future in Europe and America. Hopefully through funding this 7" we will be able to tour more widely and become more accessible to young black punks who haven't be able to find out about us yet.

Travis Barker of Blink-182 talks with Billboard about his upcoming memoir, relationships, and the plane crash.
Back then I was living very much day-to-day. My attitude was like, "Shit, I could be dead tomorrow." I grew up losing my mom at a young age, being shot at at a young age. Doing lots of drugs. If it was my time, it was my time, but then it wasn't until when I had my kids -- everything changed. Then it was like, "Oh my gosh, what did I put in my body? What did I do that for?" I loved being a father. I want to stay home with my kids, but I'm a musician, and I have to tour. That's how I make money. It was this push and pull, and then just to medicate myself to leave. I remember I...
