Tom Breihan, writing for Stereogum, on Geoff Rickly:
Things weren’t always this good for Rickly. Thursday had been spinning their wheels for a while when they finally broke up in 2011. "We used to joke around, Tucker [Rule, drummer] and I," Rickly remembers. "In between songs, he'd do this" — Rickly mimes sticking a punchcard into a machine — "and that would mean he was punching the clock that night. If the guy that’s the engine, in the middle of the band, is like, 'This is just a job,' you feel it resonate through the whole band. Alternately, sometimes, I'd be getting water and looking at him, and he'd be laughing and going, 'You are so not happy.' When you’re interfacing with the...

Matt Healy of The 1975 talks with The Guardian about how he has survived the last two years on the road.
Gigs in Britain are pretty much the only time I see or talk to my family. Sometimes, I feel guilty when I get a call from someone saying: "I haven't heard from you in a month." I think: "Wow, that's not right." You have to make an effort. That kind of thing keeps you grounded and sane. I feel that my family are more understanding than my friends, though. They get it.

I personally attended all the Warped Tour dates in California and the NW this summer. While in California, one of my new favorite clothing companies Violent Gentlemen had a tent set up, selling t-shirts right alongside Every Time I Die and JBWW. They have exclusive t-shirts for Andy Williams (ETID), Bayside, and more. I spoke with one of the co-founders, Mike Hammer about the brand and what they're up to in the future, which you can read here. Lastly, they're currently offering 15% off to readers, using the promo code "Absolutepunk" at checkout.
We sent some gear out to The Gaslight Anthem a few months ago which was a huge thing for me being a big fan. We’ve got gear on everyone from ...

Brian Warren of Weatherbox has written a Road Blog for Property of Zack addressing why the band had to recently drop off their tour.
Actually, to rewind, just a bit, I probably need to level with you on some of the other mitigating factors which lead to my psychological break down which ended our tour. First off, before tour I had begun smoking that devil’s lettuce again regularly and stop taking my prescribed psyche meds. Anybody familiar with mental illness knows this is a recipe for disaster. Hopefully this episode will imprint on my crocodilian-humanoid brain the fact that I can’t get recreational with the drugs any longer. I’m not advocating straight edge, but I, Brian Warren, am...

Sammy Maine wrote a piece for Drowned in Sound on if enjoying Blink-182 makes her a bad feminist.
Are Blink 182 a bunch of misogynists? Maybe. Are they the heroes of banishing cultural stereotypes that feminism strives to abolish too? Maybe. There will always be arguments for both sides but it’s in the creation of such discussions that feminism has flourished. The fact that we’re even talking about stuff like this – in culture, in media and in our everyday lives – is massive. Liking ‘problematic’ media doesn’t stop me from being any less of a feminist.

Brendon Urie welcomes the idea of Panic! at the Disco being a polarizing band.
"What I love is getting polarized opinions," Urie tells Billboard. "I don’t want a middle ground like, ‘Yeah, all right.’ We got a lot of love and a lot of hate. I love that. I want you to love what we’ve done or hate it with a passion." And Urie promises, he means it. "There’s random comments you read, like ‘This dude is a joke’ or that call me a whiny little bitch or whatever. That kind of stuff is fun to me. I love that stuff. Bring it on, man."
