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,Ē says Felix. ďIt 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. Theyíre playing in front of 20,000 people a night Ė theyíre pretty well off the radar. But those shows, as a support, they are the least nerve-wracking. Youíre so far away...

Our interview with Walk The Moon can be found here.
What we have really worked hard to do over the past five years is build a strong fan base through touring and make a name for ourselves as a live band. We donít use any tracks onstage. We are playing or triggering every noise that you hear live in front of you. I think it makes a difference to people. They can sense the energy and the possibility of total failure. I think that makes our concerts a special experience, and thatís really what we pride ourselves on, is the live show.

Today we're bringing you a new song from Drakulas, an Austin based quartet featuring Mike Wiebe from the Riverboat Gamblers and Zach Blair from Rise Against. Listen to "Gain Ground" in the replies and let us know what you think. The band's lo-fi garage rock style is catchy and might remind you of the Hives with a definite rough edge. The guys are playing Punk Rock Bowling later this month and you can pre-order the band's digital EP/7" through Red Scare Industries if you like what you hear. OWOWOWOWOWOWOW will be officially released on May 12th.

Pure Noise Records has released a statement, on Tumblr.
We appreciate that the community brings issues to our attention. Itís very clear that after the two unfortunate events that weíve been through that better checks and balances within the all ages community are necessary to ensure the safety of everyone. In the future, Pure Noise will certainly be more thorough in itís A&R dealings prior to signing a new artist.

My own perspective about the changing all ages community is unique. Iíve been involved in punk rock for almost twenty years. Iím a cisgender, white, college educated male who has had all the privileges as such. Iíve been a supporter of liberal politics since I was in...

Harry Corrigan of No Good News has posted a statement on Tumblr.
Iíd like to address the event on July 23rd, 2012. I feel extremely remorseful about what happened that night. I am not apologizing because of public scrutiny, but because I treated someone incorrectly. I was insensitive and I was wrong. This event has forever changed my view of what consent is. I was 19 at the time of the event and Iíve spent the last three years confused as to why people were upset with me because I knew in my heart I would never do anything to intentionally hurt someone. I take full responsibility for being insensitive and misjudging the situation. I believed it was a consensual occurrence between two...
