Another day, another band being accused of inappropriate things with fans. Neck Deep has responded to the accusations on Twitter saying they are aware they have been made and want to get to the bottom of it:
We are very aware of the accusations being made and we take them very seriously. Please give us a moment to get to the bottom of this.

Jason Gleason, formerly of Further Seems Forever, talked with Breathecast.
Gleason likens his time with Further Seems Forever as a marriage that came to an end. The business side of things brought upon most of the bad blood in the band, "It stopped being fun, and started being a business, and whatever emotions and conflicts that come along with that statement, it was my time to go. I think Jon Bunch stepped in and did a bang up job."

so here is what happened and i'm just gonna give you the actual story with no filter. was all geared up for leg 2 of the tour when we got a call from charli's camp that she couldn't continue on the tour. came as a bit of a shock to me as I'm sure it is to you right now. i need you guys to have the truthful and unfiltered version of what happened because canceling shows is something i do not do unless I physically can't walk on to the stage. i know how important these shows are to you guys - they mean everything to me. i wish there was something here that made more...

I recently spoke to We Came As Romans vocalists Dave Stephens and Kyle Pavone at the Portland, OR date of the Vans Warped Tour. We spoke about the band's brand new Self-Titled record (and it's leak 6 weeks ahead) working out on the road, and more. The record is definitely among my favorites of the year, so this was a fun conversation to have. You can read it here.
It’s not something a lot of bands do in their careers, it’s a special feat for sure. We’re really blessed; with record sales being down and our record leaking six weeks early, it just seems like everything was piled against us, and we had people telling us “You might not do top 10…you’ve got this and this against you…” But we...

Dr. Dre has issued a statement to The New York Times.
Twenty-five years ago I was a young man drinking too much and in over my head with no real structure in my life. However, none of this is an excuse for what I did. I’ve been married for 19 years and every day I’m working to be a better man for my family, seeking guidance along the way. I’m doing everything I can so I never resemble that man again. I apologize to the women I’ve hurt. I deeply regret what I did and know that it has forever impacted all of our lives.

Unless you were living under a pop-punk rock: you've probably seen that The Wonder Years' highly anticipated new album leaked last night. The somewhat interesting part is that the source of the (really bad quality) leak was apparently from streaming service Deezer. Someone over there probably has some explaining to do this morning. However, according to multiple users the album also soon appeared on the UK Spotify as well. Over the past few years it's felt like album leaks were less prevalent (and with streaming services: less sought after) but this feels like one of the biggest in a long while. I'm genuinely curious how this will impact the band's first week sales. Now I'm going to go...

Spotify has clarified their new privacy policy. Gizmodo looks at the changes. I'm still not cool giving my music player access to any data it doesn't need to do what it's supposed to do: play me music (but hey, that's just paranoid me).
The TL;DR explanation of exactly how Spotify plans to access your personal data is simply that the streaming music service will not access your photos, location, voice, or contacts, unless you give “your explicit permission.” In other words, you’ll need to opt-in.

Ryan Key of Yellowcard has launched a Kickstarter for his new studio: The Lone Tree Recordings.
You and me—Ryan Key. Together, we can bring The Lone Tree Recordings to life. As the lead singer and guitarist of Yellowcard, I practically grew up in a studio. I know how important it is for musicians to be able to write and record their music so they can share it with the world. So I'm reaching out to all music fans and musicians to help support this studio as a space for talented musicians to write and record the songs they love.

But this Friday, we've got a nice treat so you can start your weekend off right.Head over to their profile where you can check out their single "Chelsea," which is a poppy emo song falling somewhere between The Promise Ring's Nothing Feels Good and Into It. Over It.'s Proper. Which means it's good. After listening be sure to preorder and then you can pick up a CD copy via All Sounds or a limited edition cassette via Superjazz Tapes.

On Saturday, Staci Altomari and I took our cameras to the inaugural Pinelands Music Festival in Millville, NJ (along with Craig Ismaili and Shana Davidson who were on interview duty). Between the two of us, we shot sixteen bands, including Young Statues, You, Me, and Everyone We Know, The Spill Canvas, Vacationer, Good Old War, and Jukebox the Ghost. Head to the replies to check out a handful of our favorites. You can also see the entire day through both of our lenses in one big chronological album of the day.

Peter Robinson, writing for Noisey, about ghostwriting:
But pop’s move towards a more rockist interpretation of credibility isn’t open for debate: it’s already happened, and you can understand why some artists are keen not to credit writers, or to insist that they are credited even if their sole contribution was managing to record their vocal while not falling over.

Wave. We're back from our one week break and are immediately talking about Star Wars. It's exactly what you would expect from a podcast named AbsolutePunk, right? This week we look at how the whole Pure Noise Records/JJR situation impacted being able to listen to Four Year Strong's latest album, why A Wilhelm Scream isn't as crazy big and popular as they should be, the reasoning behind labels streaming albums a week or so early, our favorite b-sides, the upcoming Motion City Soundtrack album and our fears surrounding it, if there's a song of the summer, Frank Turner's new one, the new Better Off songs, and some good old fashioned nostalgia. We missed podcasting and hope you enjoy this...
