It's been a while since we talked about Nils Frahm, though the Berlin based composer has certainly been busy. He's currently prepping for the release of his first score for the one-take feature film "Victoria" which is out on June 10th via Erased Tapes. Until then, head to the replies to listen to his new song "Them" and read a lovely note from Nils himself.
Frank Turner has revealed some art surrounding his forthcoming sixth studio album, Positive Songs For Negative People. You can find that in the replies. Turner states that a "proper release date, full artwork, singles and videos will all be coming your way very soon." It seems to be due for release in July.
We Are The Union are releasing a new EP called Keep It Down this Friday, May 15th, via Paper + Plastick Records. We are streaming the whole thing. Lead single and opener "Call In Dead" picks up right where their last record left off, equipped with a chorus that's guaranteed to be belted out at live shows. "The Dreams That You Forgot" has more of a ska/reggae influence musically, while "My Whole Life Is A Dark Room" is a straightforward punk song and arguably the best song here. Oh and there's a cover of Green Day's "Burnout" and a Smash Mouth inspired song ("The King Of Chords"). Needless to say, these six songs have a lot going on - give them a listen in the replies. If you like what...

Rat Path is one of the best examples that hardcore music is alive and thriving in the Pacific Northwest, and I really think they're going to do something big soon. They just released a brand new split with Malice, as well as a new music video for "Misfortune", which you can view in the replies.
"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."
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.
Third Eye Blind will release their fifth full-length album, and their first in six years, on June 16th.

You can stream the first single, "Everything is Easy," in the replies.
A$AP Rocky has been teasing his forthcoming At.Long.Last.A$AP since before 2015 began, and it looks like it's imminent: he said in a recent interview that it will be out June 2nd instead of the previously announced May 12th. He's also shared a new song "Everyday" that features Rod Stewart (!!!), Miguel, and "Uptown Funk" mastermind Mark Ronson. Check out that song in the replies.

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...
