You can check out part two of PureVolume's video interview with Owl Cityhere. In this segment, Adam Young talks about what it was like to work with Carly Rae Jepsen and Mark Hoppus on his new album The Midsummer Station, which is in stores today.
Owl City aims for mass appeal with his forthcoming The Midsummer Station (as if that collaboration with Carly Rae Jepsen left things unclear).

He also details his work with Relient K's Matt Thiessen and more.
Guess there's a new definition for the term "Warped Tour Artist", actually. PureVolume got members of 18 different Warped bands — including New Found Glory, The Used and Anti-Flag — to doodle self-portraits, and they're up for grabs in a new contest at PureVolume. Good luck.
Slipknot's co-founder Michael Shawn Crahan (aka Clown) agreed to a sit-down with PureVolume during the Mayhem festival, revealing why the band is starting its own event and why he's like "a big teddy bear." Uh huh. Check the interview.
