According to Billboard, Beck's Morning Phase was the lowest-selling LP of this year's album of the year nominees and the lowest-selling album to win AOTY since 2008.
For comparison, six out of the last 10 LPs to win album of the year have sold more than a million copies before nabbing the honor. And all but three have moved more than half a million copies before winning album of the year (Arcade Fire's The Suburbs was also shy of that milestone).

Everything Ever are gearing up to release their new album Solid Ground on March 10th via Secret Audio Club. We are streaming a new song called "Big Ideas" - it's in the replies. The song is a fast-paced pop-punk tune, but the interesting part is that it incorporates some of the more theatrical type vocals of bands like Panic! at the Disco. The vocals contrast a lot with the heavily palm-muted guitars at times, while speeding up tenfold at other moments. For only three minutes, the track has a fun hook that gets your foot tapping, a slowed-down drawn-out bridge, and rapid paced singing in between it all - it's a doozy. The band has announced a slew of tour dates, which include stops with...

Florence + The Machine hosted a listening party for the new album in a London restaurant last night.

We recently talked about Cartel's upcoming Chroma 10 year tour and vinyl release on our podcast and how influential that album was in shaping tastes and the whole "pop-punk sound" for a few years. Ten years ago we were the website that first streamed the album for everyone to hear -- so it's with a lot of pride (and an impending sense of my own age) that we present a special acoustic version of "If I Fail" with you today. The band recorded these sessions with Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount (the team behind Chroma), and we have a whole bunch of these to release over the next few weeks. Hit the replies for the song all the information about the band's upcoming tour.

Cory from Norma Jean's daughter was in a severe car accident. Their family has set up a GoFundMe page for donations.
Our insurance should cover a good amount, but simply being in an ICU room for almost a week is going to be a hefty charge, let alone the surgery, care and having to be flown on a fixed wing plane etc. For those that were asking how to help in that dept, we're looking into creative ways to help financially. (Raffling off something cool or something like that.)

Trapt took to Facebook after Paramore won a Grammy last night. Gotta say, posting a rant on Facebook sure does seem "anti-establishment" to me.
The fact that Paramore won an award for Best Rock Song and Beck won for Best Rock Album shows you that there's gotta be a conspiracy going around to destroy the essence of what rock music is all about. The establishment doesn't want anything too threatening or in your face to rile you up, they just want you to nod to adult pop punk;) or indie folk electronica and think it's "rock."

Bullet for My Valentine have parted ways with bassist Jay James.
It is with regret that Bullet For My Valentine has to announce that Jay James is no longer a member of the band. Jay has been a part of this band for well over 12 years and part of our lives forever, and we’re gonna miss him as much as we know you guys are too. We wanna wish him all the best and success with whatever he chooses to do next and will always be grateful for his contribution and sacrifices he made for this band.

We’ll announce a r…eplacement for Jay when we feel the time is right, but until then we’re gonna be busy and focused recording our next record and making sure its the best album we’ve ever made.
