Joe Steinhardt of Don Giovanni Records has posted a message on Facebook challenging Recess Records and Asian Man Records to speak up about their association with The Queers and Screeching Weasel after multiple incidents over the years.
Forget the Ice Bucket Challenge. I challenge two labels, Recess Records and Asian Man Records to completely disassociate with sexist, racist, and homophobic punk bands like The Queers and Screeching Weasel. It is ridiculous that anyone legitimate would be working with them to release their music after the long-term pattern (note: not isolated incidents) of sexist, racist, and homophobic crap they spew online and offline. Mike and Todd, you can do better....

Brolly will release their second EP, Wolfe, on September 23rd. Today, we are streaming a new song from it called "Ghost Town." The band has ambient elements that take influences from both Coldplay and From Indian Lakes, which isn't surprising since Dryw Owens (From Indian Lakes, Culprit, Consider the Thief) helped the band produce the album. Give it a listen in the replies.

Paramore recently talked with The Daily Star and Hayley Williams mentioned that she doesn't see the band still doing this when they all need walkers.
I've always said I don’t want to be a ghost of my former self. I always want to be the best at whatever I'm doing right then. So when I'm that old maybe I'll be better at something other than head banging and pulling muscles in my back. Maybe I'll just want to be a grandma.

Donald Glover has been cast as the voice of Ultimate Spider-Man Miles Morales for the Disney XD animated series.
"He meets someone who is his hero, and that comes across completely in Donald's performance," Stephen Wacker, Marvel Television's vice president of current animation, tells the newspaper. "He's got a real warmth that suits the character really, really well. If you've read Miles Morales comics, Donald's voice nails what you've been reading."

Alt Press reached out to 37 female musicians about their experiences with sexism and five responded.
One of the most headache-inducing experiences I've had is being straight-up blocked from getting onstage by security even though I was carrying equipment and had a laminate. I walked up to the bouncer and asked him, “Hey, how do I get on the stage?” And he was like, “Why do you need to go there?” I said, “To sing,” and he sill wouldn't let me onstage until I was like, “Well we can wait here until no band starts playing because I'm not there.” Then he finally let me on.

Boston indie-rock band The Color And Sound recently signed to Black Numbers; a 2013 EP was re-issued as an introduction to new fans, but the real excitement for the pop-friendly, boppy act begins right now (right now!!) with the September 16 release of a new EP called Peace of Mind (pre-order here). In the replies, we're premiering a lyric video for the first tune to be released from that EP, titled "Cigarettes," in the form of a lyric video that looks like a karaoke machine. Here's the thing; well, here's two things: 1. How have I never seen a lyric video done like this before?? and 2. It's damn, damn good and catchy as all hell. Check it out, or else why did you bother meandering to...
