Head over to The Guardian to stream Drenge's sophmore album Undertow in full. If you're a fan of scuzzy, grungy garage rock you should really listen to this band.

Drawing influence from the likes of Senses Fail, Hawthorne Heights and Story of the Year, Airsickness will remind you of the post-hardcore bands you loved a decade ago, only without the screaming. The Tampa, FL act's debut EP, Between All the Lies, comes out tomorrow, but you can hear it in the replies right now.

Chris Adler of Lamb of God is playing drums on the new Megadeth album. They'll be recording as a three piece: Adler, vocalist/guitarist Dave Mustaine and bassist David Ellefson.
Dave Mustaine comments, ďChris is a tremendous talent, and an amazing person. He is going to bring a new level of excitement and energy to Megadeth that the fans are going to lose their minds over. I have nothing but respect for my previous drummers, but this is going to absolutely kill! Back in 1989, Megadeth originally worked as a three piece - guitar, bass and drums - when we laid down the framework to our Grammy nominated platinum album ĎRust In Peace.í I want to thank the other members of Lamb Of God for...

Update: It unfortunately looks as though this is not true according to Queen's Brian May and was only a joke made by the band's manager in an acceptance speech.

Sacha Baron Cohen will write, direct, and star in a biopic about Freddie Mercury.

Jonathan Diener, writing for Nothing Original:
I am the guy standing in the back of the crowd. Iím most likely crossing my arms and not singing along. Even in a situation when thereís a circle pit, stage diving or crowd surfing, Iím most likely not participating. When the singer of the band shouts out to the show-goers for a wall of death or to clap along, I donít indulgethem. If youíre having a good time up front and look back to see me standing there, you probably think Iím trying to be cool. You probably think Iím not enjoying myself. If you assume those things, youíre in the wrong. I couldnít be cool even if I tried and Iím probably having a great time. If thatís the case, then why...

Sarah Sahim, writing for Pitchfork:
What substantiates this are the microaggressions, as well as overt and covert expressions of racism, that happen as a result of those systemically held ideals. Some may take the success of artists of color as threat to their space or scene. White art is deemed more worthy of respect, and so white audiences respond to it positivelyóit is set up for success. Itís evidenced the last week of news: be it the insidious petition urging Glastonbury to drop Kanye West in favor of a "rock band" (read: a white artist), or the repeated co-option of Indian and Desi pop culture by Major Lazer going unremarked upon. White art additionally dilutes and flattens...

Laura Jane Grace, of Against Me!, writing for Noisey:
I made three laps around the world last year and every single airport interaction always included a "sir" addressed to me. Checking in, security, passport control, boarding, de-boarding, getting a cab, checking into the hotel, checking out of the hotel, the security guard at the club, some bartender, a waitress, some drunk dickhead telling me I look like Mark Wahlberg in Rock Star instead of a woman, another bartender, another taxi, and then do it all again the next day. Shoot me in the fucking head.

Twitter released their new app Periscope this week. It's an app that allows you to create livestreams from your phone and anyone can join in and watch. I could see this being a tool for bands to use to livestream from the studio, throwing makeshift AMAs, or playing random acoustic performances for fans. The app is now available in the app store. Casey Newton over at The Verge talks more about the app for those curious:
Periscope has been in development for more than a year, and the app arrives showing nice attention to detail. You sign in with Twitter, and the first thing you see is a list of streams that are currently live. Below it, youíll see a list of recent streams. Not all can be...

When The Jazz June resurfaced in 2014, we tacked them on to the growing list of late-90's emo bands who were making a come back. However, the band didn't just get together for a handful of shows; they released an entire album, After the Earthquake.

Before officially recording the album, The Jazz June threw down a handful of songs at The Headroom in Philly. The songs weren't released to the public with the exception of one track which was featured on a split with Dikembe.

Today in the replies we're streaming a track from this session, an acoustic version of "Edge of Space", a song that was later re-recorded and featured on After the Earthquake. "Edge of Space" was mixed by Sean...
