If you've been following my Twitter at all over the past few months, you'll already know how much I've been gushing over Moose Blood's upcoming full-length, I’ll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time. This album is going to be a big deal here and I couldn't be more excited to premiere the band's new video for "Swim Down." Check it out in the replies, get stoked, and then pre-order the record. It'll be in stores October 7th.

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 ...
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...
Steady Hands is the seven-piece folk-punk side project of Modern Baseball drummer Sean Huber. The band's new EP, Brandy of the Damned, drops tomorrow via Lame-O Records (check out preorders), and today we have the entire release streaming in the replies for you to check out early! Listen if you're a fan of Frank Turner and that sort of punk-turned-acoustic-folk type genre -- if you are, this is right up your alley.
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.
"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."
This past year I decided to come out, and since doing so – on my own terms, and in my own way – I have met and heard from hundreds of other men and women like me who feel deeply connected to their religious beliefs and yet are proudly, or sometimes shamefully, gay. As a proud gay Mormon man, I’ve received a lot of questions: How can you be Mormon and be gay? How can you be a part of a religion that doesn’t accept you?
The Offspring's Dexter Holland talked to PunkNews about the band's future. He's unsure if the band's next release will be a full album.
We’re not really sure. We used to always do records where we’d go in and spend as long as it took — and sometimes that takes like a year and a half to really do it — and that seems like a long time to wait in between records. And no one really buys albums anymore…or maybe they do, I don’t know. But the way people really digest music has just changed; it’s not really the same way where you’re gonna sit down with the record and really listen to it.
