Hostage Calm have broken up.
Hostage Calm has broken up. Itís too soon, itís too young, and it hurts too much. All planned shows are canceled. We are still figuring out if and when there will be any final shows. I want to personally thank every one of you who supported us over the years. You shared so much more with us than youíll ever know. From our music to our politics, you helped make a bunch of Wallingford kidsí foolish dreams a reality. It was the great privilege of our young lives. To all of you whoíve connected with us, whoíve grown with us, whoíve loved, changed, cried, lived with us - and to all of you who will yet - Just know that we loved what we did, and we could never have...

Deryck Whibley has released an alternate version to Sum 41's "Open Your Eyes."
i have a whole stock pile of old sum 41 stuff saved in storage. versions of songs that never got used, old demos, unreleased tracks etc. i found something the other day that i had forgotten about. this was the original version for the song open your eyes. it has a shorter first chorus and a different guitar solo. this was the way i intended the song to be but somehow it got changed in the studio along the way. i ended up using this solo in a different song later on, but i always liked this version and i still do

Run the Jewels' sophomore album RTJ2 came with a preorder package that promised the album would be remixed entirely with cat noises if it was reached. A fan started a kickstarter to reach the $40,000 price tage, and El-P promised to follow through with the project if it was reached, with the proceeds going to charity. Now, Zola Jesus, Danny Brown's in-house producer Skywlkr, and Just Blaze have all promised to contribute production as well. Additionally, Just Blaze will release all the drum kits he used between 2001 and 2005 for free if the goal is reached.

Meredith Graves of Perfect Pussy has written an editorial for Pitchfork about the continuing one-sided conflict between Sun Kil Moon's Mark Kozelak and The War on Drugs.
It seems this is most people's opinion of the one-sided beef: Kozelek, a notorious curmudgeon, isn't doing anything harmful by harassing these guys. In fact, he's just doing what he's always doneóbeing a grumpy ass who doesn't seem to care what people think of him. These same people insist that ignoring him and letting him continue to do this kind of stuff is the best option moving forward. To speak up about this kind of behavior from artists and performers is to inevitably be met with, "Lighten up, not everything has...

"They have scraped cancerous tissues four times already, but whatever," he said. "If I die, then I die. And if I donít, then I donít. Right now I feel good.
