Knew it was coming ... Morrissey has responded to the statement yesterday from Gail Shea.
There was something more than slightly desperate in Gail Shea referring to my recent comments on the annual Canadian seal slaughter as "ignorant", as reported in Canada's National Post. Speaking on behalf of Gail Shea, Sophie Doucet - showing symptoms of the same Shea disorder - stated: "I would urge Mr. Morrissey to consider the impact that his ignorant and inflammatory statements have on the livelihoods of thousands of hard-working men and women in rural communities". I should remind Sophie Doucet that building and maintaining the Concentration Camps of Auschwitz also provided livelihoods, but...

Billboard's profile of Dana Giacchetto reveals that Microsoft once made a (very low) bid for Sub-Pop Records.
Giacchetto says his greatest deal was the 1994 Sub Pop sale to Warner. "I can now reveal that Universal was the top bidder, $25 million," says Giacchetto, "but it wasn't the right creative fit. Sony Music bid $5 million. David Geffen bid $8 million -- I told him his bid was way too f-ing low - and Microsoft bid a paltry $4 million, frankly insulting. Bill Gates, who at the time considered himself to be 'the future of entertainment,' couldn't have been a more dull character. It definitely would have made Microsoft a bit more hip, which in hindsight might have actually made...

You can stream the first new song from Say Anything's new LP, Hebrews, in the replies (via Billboard). The song is called "Six Six Six," it features Andy Hull, and there's a pretty cool article/interview with Max Bemis at that link. New details about Hebrews, which drops June 10 via Equal Vision (tour dates here), include the tracklisting (in the replies), which has 16 guest vocalists like Tom Delonge, Chris Conley, Keith Buckley and more, and the fact that there are no guitars on the record.
"This has easily been the most gratifying and fun making a record has ever been," Bemis tells Billboard. "The sort of theatrical bent of the music is something that's always been a part of Say...

Vain & Valor filled out our random interview; check it out.
Our very first weekender I was locked outside of the van half naked in the middle of nowhere at 3am. It was hilarious for everyone inside the van I'm sure, but for me it was one of those "Mom get me a grey hound ticket. I'm coming home!" moments.

The guys from Copeland will be chatting in this thread at 8pm EST. It's been over five years since the band released new music, so make it worth their while. Ask them about their new album, Ixora, what they've been up to over the past couple years with their side projects, the band's future and more. And when the chat's over, be sure to head over to their webstore and pre-order the new album.

Update: The chat is now over with. We'd like to thank Aaron and Bryan for taking four hours to answer all of our questions. If that doesn't say enough about the guys, I don't know what will. Again, if you haven't already, go pre-order Ixora and help the guys create the next beautiful...

Deadmau5 seemed to take issue with Arcade Fire throwing a few jabs EDM's way the past few weeks. During their Coachella set, Win Butler shouted out "to all the bands playing instruments this weekend" -- and the replies via Twitter from Deadmau5 range from, "arcade fire needs to settle down. some dudes devote their lives to instruments, others to electronic composition by cpu, dafuqs yer problem?" to "inb4 some fucking hipster throws a hackeysack at me." This is way cooler than when I get called out by disgraced band members on my Facebook page.

Robin from Fleet Foxes has posted an update about the band's current status.
For anyone who's curious, this is a short Fleet Foxes update - been a while! So, after the last round of touring, I decided to go back to school. I never got an undergraduate degree, and this felt like the right time to both see what that was about and to try something new after a while in the touring / recording lifestyle. I moved to New York and enrolled at Columbia, and I've mostly been doing that, but I'm working on songs and excited for whatever happens next musically, even if it's down the line. Hope all is well out there.

Junior Battles new album Rally will hit stores on May 27th. Redbull is premiering the song with some more info from the band and/or you can hear it in the replies.
"In the past, a lot of Junior Battles songs dealt really deliberately with the uncertainty of your early 20s -- trying to figure out how to be a decent adult who still can tour and pay rent and still go to shows on weeknights," says singer/guitarist Sam Sutherland. "When we started writing 'Rally,' things had changed. We had stopped touring as much, and the anxiety of 'Idle Ages' was fading. In its place, we found ourselves writing more broadly about our place in the world and the kind of people we felt ourselves becoming....
