You can check out our interview with Volumes, here. Near the end, vocalist Micheal Barr reveals the band will be a part of this year's Warped Tour.
Booked until fall. We're doing this tour, then we go home and then we have a few options in where we could do maybe a Chelsea Grin tour or maybe another tour with a band I can't say right now. And then we do Warped Tour for 30 days, which will probably lead to us doing some regional U.S. touring on the way back. We're playing Australia after that in the Fall, and after that, it's up in the air.

Manchester Orchestra bassist Jonathan Corley has left the band.
Another time for change has come in the life of Manchester Orchestra. Our dear friend and bassist Jonathan Corley has made the decision to part ways with the band and pursue another career outside of playing music. This was a very obviously a very difficult decision but J is our eternal brother and we wish him the absolute best. There is no doubt that he will find success in any area he pursues. He will remain a part of the Manchester Orchestra family forever and there is no way we can thank him enough for the time he has spent with us over the last 9 years.

Please see below for a message from J.


After much...

For Today's van, trailer and equipment were stolen in San Antonio, TX.
Some nerd stole our van and trailer (and a couple hundred-thousand dollars of equipment) from our hotel parking lot last night. So now we're rolling to Houston in rental cars. They can steal our stuff, but they can't touch our joy! Jesus Reigns! (Unshakeable). Get pumped.

Fall Out Boy have written up a response to fans who haven't been able to get tickets due to ticket scalpers.
Hi everybody!

Holy smokes, this has been an amazing week for us. In the past three shows we've done (our first in three years), we've been utterly humbled to see so many familiar faces.

The thing we're not as happy to see is that, along with the most amazing audience in the world, there was also the inevitable return of folks looking to exploit and cheat that audience.

So here's a few bullet points:
1) We don't see (and wouldn't want) any extra money from the unreasonable ticket prices scalpers are asking.
2) Neither do (to the best of our knowledge) the promoters we...

Bruce Springsteen was honored as the MusiCares Person of The Year, and the tribute concert featured Elton John, Tom Morello, Neil Young, Mumford & Sons and others playing classic songs by The Boss to raise money for charity. Springsteen also auctioned off a signed guitar, but the auction wasn't going that well, so...
Springsteen took the microphone and upped the ante, throwing in a free guitar lesson with himself as the teacher, a ride in the side car of his Harley, eight tickets to the E Street concert of their choice, a backstage tour and lasagna made by his 87-year-old mother, Adele. A woman from New Jersey snapped it up for $250,000, then proceeded to kiss Springsteen on his lips.
