Tyler Glenn, the lead singer of Neon Trees, has come out as gay in the latest issue of Rolling Stone.
Tyler Glenn — lead singer for Provo, Utah New Wave-pop quartet Neon Trees and a Mormon his entire life — reveals he is gay in the new issue of Rolling Stone (on stands Friday, March 28th). "I've always felt like I'm an open book, and yet obviously I haven't been completely," he tells RS' Caryn Ganz. But he is now: Glenn speaks candidly about his first gay experiences, his band's reaction to his coming out and his complicated relationship with his conservative religion in our new story.

Vanna have entered the studio with producer Will Putney (Stray From the Path, Counterparts) to begin recording their fifth full length. It's due out this summer via Pure Noise Records.
One of the things we love most about music is the freedom to try new things and mess around with new sounds and bring different elements into play. We've gotten to work with such amazing producers and engineers in the past. As we started looking towards our future and what we wanted to capture with a new record we started jamming some of out favorite sounding records of late and they all had one common denominator, Will Putney.

Making the move to Pure Noise Records was a direction step for us that we...

Touché Amoré have released a statement regarding the controversy of the "Good Riddance/Fred Phelps" t-shirt.
Here we are years later, and the man has died. We got messages saying we should reprint the design, so we thought "we'll do an updated version and have the proceeds go to benefit what the man lived the last years of his life trying to dismantle.” We feel there is beautiful irony in selling an image of a bigot and using the profit towards achieving equality for exactly what they hated. Which is why all net profit (money earned after cost/printing) will be going to http://www.hrc.com

Fine Fine Titans answered our interview; read it here.
After we finished our short set, for some reason, people wanted more! Never being a band to disappoint, our fill in guitar player ripped into a barely recognizable version of “Everlong” by the Foo Fighters that we had never practiced before. Ever. And we completely bombed it. Somehow, we managed to drag our way through it to the end, but not without hitting just about every speed bump along the way. We overplayed the chorus, underplayed the verses, and I even think the drums were in the wrong key, which I’m formerly thought was impossible.
