We've had a few readers write in that in the Warped Tour program there's an ad for Razor and Tie that lists Finch's new album as titled Back to Oblivion with a release date of August 12th. We haven't seen any scans of this yet, so I'm saying take it with a grain of salt until it's confirmed.

Croatian Amor's new album, The Wild Palms, is not available for purchase but can be exchanged for a "full-frontal nude self-portrait" of yourself with the title of the album written somewhere on your body. The artist behind the "promotion," Loke Rahbek, will only make as many copies of the album as people who send him the photos.
So I ask that anyone who gets the music does not share it with anyone. And I promise in return to not share those photos with anyone. They are going to be in a file, and they are going to stay there. I wanted it to be secret, because you know if we’re talking about intimacy, nothing is stronger than keeping secrets together.
I'll never know my father because he died young & it becomes a desirable feat because ppl like u think it's "cool". Well, it's fucking not. Embrace life, because u only get one life. The ppl u mentioned wasted that life.Don't be 1 of those ppl

First of all, I wanted to say that what Ryan said was wrong and that I'm sorry for it, even if he isn't. As many of you may know who know Mixtapes, what was said on stage the other day was meant to be a joke and was said in a sarcastic manner. Ryan corrected himself on stage shortly after.
That being said, there are some things that just shouldn't be joked about in the first place and sexual assault is one of them. I know personally as I've been kissed and touched without permission multiple times on stage and off since being in Mixtapes and...

Multiplereports are coming in from Warped Tour that Mixtapes' frontman Ryan Rockwell said something akin to "fuck tigers jaw. kiss whoever you want" while on stage today. I feel like the response from Tiger's Jaw on Twitter says it best: "disappointing. You had an opportunity to promote respectful behavior towards others and you did the opposite. Bad look."
This week was good and somewhat stressful around the website. Now that the weekend has arrived, I'm looking forward to a few days of relaxing, World Cup watching, and good beer. However, before that begins, I wanted to highlight some of the best stories, exclusives, and staff content from the past week. In general I'm not a big fan of too many "recaps" -- but one a week doesn't seem too crazy. I've broken the stories down into a few major categories below. If this looks horrible on the homepage, I'll need a moment to fix our CSS a little bit. It's a work in progress and any feedback is definitely welcome.
I think the highlight of my week on the website was the launching of the latest...
