Better theme song: "Ninja Rap" by Vanilla Ice or "Addams Groove" by M.C. Hammer? Answer: No theme song will ever be better than "Hey Sandy" by Polaris.

Cassadee Pope has defended her decision to go on "The Voice." In other news, why do people watch "The Voice"?
FRom the blogAlrighty! If you are interested even in the least as to why I auditioned for The Voice in the first place, you won’t mind sitting through this blog and hearing my side of things. I know some of you think I don’t need this opportunity, think I’m too established for the show, or even think I’m too “famous” (no way!) to be a contestant. The cool thing about The Voice, and the biggest aspect that made me want to participate, is they don’t try to hide the fact that they give well-established artists another chance; as they have made very clear with the past 2 season’s...

You, Me & Everyone We Know plan to release a new EP this fall.
Message from the BandThe EP should be out later in the fall if I stop getting called in to work. Also, as long as something like 15 more people back the kickstarter it should go through. I had nothing to do with it other than offering a handmade book for a higher contribution. I need to start putting that together. It should be pretty cool.

A Wilhelm Scream have announced that their upcoming album will be released in the Spring of 2013.
From the InterviewSPRING!…. My plan has come to fruition. Mike [Supina, guitar] arranged and wrote a few songs on the record and they’re great. He also came up with the lyrics and melodies for those songs. I think this record is going to be a much more collaborative effort from everybody, adding all the wonderful stuff they do, you know? I mean, I basically said, “Hey, who’s the best bassist I know? Brian Robinson. Okay, let’s get him in the band. Who’s Nick Angelini? There he is. He feels the music.” Then Brian called up Mike. We have a very creative and awesome lineup. It’s great when...

If you're in a band, isn't Russia the last place you wanna be right now? Anyway, Elway have been taken in and interrogated while on tour in Russia. They have also had several items stolen from them while abroad.
From the BlogWe were told that we need to come to the police station for questioning. Pants are beginning to be shat at this point. We arrived at the station and were sat down in a hallway in the company of a guy with an AK-47 while the sexy duo and a few other cops talked to the promoter in the adjoining office (I hesitate to call it an interrogation room). They asked shit like “What your musics about?” “No singing politic?” “Have heard any Russian bands? (baiting me to say...

Cute is What We Aim For has released an EP of unreleased acoustic/b-side demos, and 10% of proceeds will go to local charities.

Update: Apparently this was posted by an ex-member of the band, and the current incarnation of CIWWAF don't have anything to do with it. - JT

Update #2: Shannt has asked fans not to buy the songs. I kinda think he should upload them for free somewhere. That's what I'd do. - JT
