Show ReviewsInsisting The Menzingers Are The Most Important Punk Band We Have Today (Thomas Nassiff)

I saw The Menzingers on the second night of their headlining Rented World tour with Pup, Lemuria and Cayetana on Friday night at New York City's Webster Hall. Playing their biggest headlining show to date, the band put on an incredible performance with a near-perfect set list - check out my review in the replies.
What a band does on stage goes very far in determining whether they'll be a truly successful, A-list act. Writing a great record and having some hype around your name helps a band get to a place where they can go on good tours, play in bigger rooms and share their music with more people. Being a band that is more impressive on stage than on the record can help a group...

The Ataris posted an update about their ever delayed album in the comments section of their most recent Facebook post:
Have around 20 songs recorded including the four posted. That means all the music for those 20 are completely finished. Vocals finished for around six of those. Then as of the last year or so since losing my father and some other things that have inspired me I have written a large handful of additional songs. (Roughly 15 or so more) I plan to record some of those and finish vocals to some of the best of the first batch. That leaves a lot of good B-sides and tracks leftover for 7" vinyl releases and to carry a few over into the future. Goal is to do some recording as...

An artist claims he worked with and for My Chemical Romance in 2009 and has not received credit. Gerard Way has responded on Twitter by reaching out to the artist with, "Vasilis, I have now seen what you wrote. I think this is absolutely not the way this should be handled. Obvious we need to talk."
Time passes with no word of the record/project/anything and in the summer of 2010 I get word from a friend that "my video was out" I was in China at that point, trekking mountains that no whitey has seen before and it took me some time to get around some internet and around that stupid Chinese "no google" wall thing. I saw the video with what it looked like my guns, and my costume designs. I...

This week's AbsolutePlaylist may feel a bit bizarre. Shaped around my night owl tendencies, "night moves" features the finest, darkest, and starkest cuts from some of my favorite artists - the type of music I want to listen to whether I'm driving aimlessly at 3 AM or lying in bed restless. Expect imperfect vocals, raw and ultra personal lyrics, loud/quiet/loud dynamics, and the unexpected. And one can only truly experience said playlist once the sun sets. Let's get weird in the replies.

Remember, if you'd like to submit your very own playlist, head over to our submission thread!

Thomas promises this is the last week his microphone will have an echo and I promise this is one of my favorite episodes of the AbsolutePunk Podcast yet. This week we talk about the Apple and Beats deal finalizing and how that plays into curated playlists vs full album listening habits. Then we touch on major labels and their structure and place in the industry before tackling the upcoming Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties album. We round out the conversation discussing if Blink-182 should just go on hiatus again, what other musical artists could maybe be billionaires someday, why Ronnie Radke is a moron, and why each of us choose to post something as news or to ignore it.
