Mineral recently did an AMA on Reddit.
Glad to hear the music was a help to you. That is what is great about music. I grew up and became very involved in the church and Christianity. It was honestly one of my primary concerns at the time I wrote most of the lyrics on The Power of Failing. Really I think it was more about my spiritual and social anxiety as a whole.

People in Cars used to be the solo project of Etay Pisano. Now a trio comprised of Pisano, Mike Toohey (bass) and Jesse Hangen (drums), the band is getting ready to release a self-titled seven inch this June. Today we're excited to premiere the A-Side to the single, entitled "Let Go." It's a spacious alt-rock track perhaps in the vein of some Anberlin music. Listen to it in the replies and pre-order here.

A bunch of records over at Hot Topic are on clearance: Midtown, Yellowcard, and Underoath all have records as part of the sale -- and many are included in the "buy one, get one for $1" deal too.

Brendan Kelly's latest blog tackles the idea of success, timing, and what it all means in the grand scheme of things.
My friend and mentor Mike Burkett is very fond of telling people, ‘Don’t compare your band to NOFX. We’re an anomaly and no one can expect to do what we did,’ and he’s right. There’s no REASON that NOFX is huge and are going to be huge forever. Sure, they write great songs (so did American Steel). Sure, they’re funny as hell (so are the Dickies). Sure, they helped define a genre (so did the Suicide Machines). None of that shit matters, y’all. And this is true in every field, creative or scientific, or anything in between. There’s hard work and there’s talent, and those...

The Lonely Forest are going on indefinite hiatus.
It is with sadness that we announce to the world that The Lonely Forest is going on an indefinite hiatus. We've been playing together for nearly a decade, released four full length records and played hundreds of shows. We've done many amazing things and met even more amazing people. The memories that we share with each other and our fans will never be forgotten.
To every fan who came to a show, wrote us a letter, baked us cookies, let us sleep on your floor, bought our records, wore our t-shirts and genuinely loved us: we give you our infinite thanks and gratitude.

I was wondering if anyone was going to comment on this after we posted the video for Arcade Fire's "We Exist" -- but I never really saw anything pop-up. Then, this morning I saw this Tweet from Against Me!'s Laura Jane Grace: "Dear arcadefire, maybe when making a video for a song called "We Exist" you should get an actual "Trans" actor instead of Spider-Man?"

Sad and French consists of Jose Prieto, Edwin Santacruz and Greg Taylor. The band's press release tells me that the trio "writes songs about girls and booze," which is right up my alley. Today, we're premiering "Second Floor," a raucous and twangy number that'll get you tapping your feet. The song is off the band's upcoming self-titled debut, which will be available on May 27th via Black Numbers (pre-order now). Check out the song in the replies.

There's a new IndieGoGo campaign up to fund a documentary on Siberia's improbable punk scene in the 80's.
Directed by Vladimir Kozlov, this first-of-its-kind documentary uses rare footage of Siberian punk legends including the punk poet and songwriter Yanka Dyagileva and the controversial godfather of Russian punk Yegor Letov, along with contemporary interviews, to recount the story of Siberia's improbable punk scene. Arguably the very embodiment of underground, Siberian punk existed not only thousands of miles away from the movement's epicenters in New York and London but also at the height of the Cold War – a time when playing punk music might literally have landed you in… well,...
