Dennis Lyxzen of Refused was recently interviewed by Rolling Stone.
"People have these expectations and beliefs that they pin on us," Lyxzén says. "There are some fans who have lived with The Shape of Punk to Come for their entire lives and have decided that's all we are. But now it's time for us to decide what we want our legacy to be. And this album is a good start-over, so to speak."

Jay Cridlin, writing for the Tampa Bay Times, looks at the line-ups of major music festivals and its lack of big name rock band headliners.
Guitars have faded into the background of millennial music culture; rock no longer moves the needle like pop, hip-hop and even electronic dance music. When Pretty Lights (real name Derek Vincent Smith) was added to Big Guava's lineup in February, he immediately shot to the top line of the poster, leapfrogging rockers like Ryan Adams, Hozier and, yes, the Pixies.

Did you know Thomas made homemade salad dressing? Me either. He's got the chef skills in this podcasting partnership. This week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast features us answering some user feedback like "are you ethically allowed to download music you bought on vinyl?" before talking a little about Fall Out Boy's From Under the Cork Tree turning 10, some of the issues facing the whole Pure Noise Records stuff and why I feel obligated to use our platform for things that I find important (note: this episode was recorded on Monday), and then the obviousness of Matt Skiba saying he would would join Blink-182 if asked. The episode can be streamed and/or downloaded below.

The Maccabees guitarist, Felix White, recently sat down with BrumNotes to talk their long-awaited fourth album (end of July, you'll all be pleased to know on my behalf), the long path that lead to it and their support slot with Mumford and Sons in North America.
"We actually took Mumford & Sons on their first ever tour, it was just before their first record Sigh No More blew up,” says Felix. “It was on the tour for our second, Wall of Arms, in 2009. Now look at them. You cannot believe how big they are in America. They’re playing in front of 20,000 people a night – they’re pretty well off the radar. But those shows, as a support, they are the least nerve-wracking. You’re so far away...
