Last summer we premieredPetals, the debut full length from Austin, TX post-rock/metal band Funeralbloom. Today we are premiering the 14-minute long video for "Lust," which you can check out in the replies. I stated that this is a record that'll take your ears on an incredible journey through various soundscapes (especially if you dig Deafheaven) and now it's also being pressed to wax so check that out as well.
Pure Noise Records has released a statement, on Tumblr.
We appreciate that the community brings issues to our attention. It’s very clear that after the two unfortunate events that we’ve been through that better checks and balances within the all ages community are necessary to ensure the safety of everyone. In the future, Pure Noise will certainly be more thorough in it’s A&R dealings prior to signing a new artist.
My own perspective about the changing all ages community is unique. I’ve been involved in punk rock for almost twenty years. I’m a cisgender, white, college educated male who has had all the privileges as such. I’ve been a supporter of liberal politics since I was in...
I’d like to address the event on July 23rd, 2012. I feel extremely remorseful about what happened that night. I am not apologizing because of public scrutiny, but because I treated someone incorrectly. I was insensitive and I was wrong. This event has forever changed my view of what consent is. I was 19 at the time of the event and I’ve spent the last three years confused as to why people were upset with me because I knew in my heart I would never do anything to intentionally hurt someone. I take full responsibility for being insensitive and misjudging the situation. I believed it was a consensual occurrence between two...

Green Day front man and rock'n'roll hall of famer, Billie Joe Armstrong, and his wife, Adrienne, own an old airstream trailer and as a special surprise to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary, Adrienne has asked the Junk Gypsies to renovate the trailer and make it into a 'surf shack on wheels' that Billie can take out surfing with his buddies. Amie and Jolie hit the road for inspiration and to find a surfboard for the airstream. They build a table out of a surfboard and turn the airstream into a 'Zen, rock'n'roll surf shack' for Billie Joe.

5 Seconds of Summer played a new song "Permanent Vacation" live for the first time. Video in the replies. Just think, to many around the internet, this was like Brand New playing "Mene" for the first time.
O'Brother have been added to Brand New's show in North Carolina this weekend. The band have also asked all attending to bring two cans of non-perishible food to be entered into a raffle to win a signed set-ist.
Clean Girls' new full length record, Despite You, is now streaming over on their Bandcamp. The record is a noisy, hardcore and heavy affair that any fan of the classic skramz sound should check out. The vinyl can be purchased here, and a press release for the band can be read in the replies.

I was recently introduced to Susanne Sundførby Ryan (@COREhorizon), and I'm in love. The track "Fade Away" can only be described as everything I love about music from the 80s and Scandinavian pop. Listen to it below.
In this, the first year of Fetty Wap's "Trap Queen," we have already been blessed with a very good remix of that song. Now, the 6 God himself, Drake, has seen fit to bless us further by remixing Fetty's next single "My Way." Praise be and stream the song in the replies.
Today’s Mixtape Festival has announced The Movielife as the first headliner - their first Long Island show in over 13 years. The full lineup and general admission tickets will relase next week, but Early Bird passes are now available.
However, the actual release is different than the way we initially intended. “Matter of Time” was supposed to be number eight, I believe?]Oh, yeah, so the label was like, “‘Matter of Time’ is the hit, man, we’ve got to move it up.” So it turned out to be fourth and it ruined our tuning order.
Hot Mulligan released their debut EP Fenton in November of last year. It's being re-released later this month via Save Your Generation as well as a new EP titled "Honest & Cunning. The reissue of Fenton, with new artwork and an acoustic version of "Buy a Fire Extinguisher Before You Need One," can be preordered on Bandcamp. If you'd like to give the band a try before preordering, "Buy a Fire Extinguisher" is streaming in the replies. It gives a rawer look at the band's emo-inflected pop punk style.
Another day, more radio silence regarding this. Some bands have spoken out, some remain silent, others about to embark on huge tours have deleted their tweets, and the band in question has said nothing. I checked their website today because I was curious when their next tour started. Not only because I was curious to see who their upcoming tourmates were and what they had said about this entire thing (looks like nothing), but I wanted to know the dates and get a feel for the timeline of everything coming up. To my surprise I see the AP.net logo sitting on their tour imagery. This is about the time my blood starts to boil. I turned down this sponsorship "opportunity" (so many air quotes)...
Red City Radio's new video for "Two Out of Three Ain't Rad" can be viewed in the replies (via Brooklyn Vegan).

They're supporting their recently released self-titled album, which can be purchased here.
I was contacted by Rob Stevenson, who was [Fall Out Boy’s] A&R guy at Island Records. Basically he told me he had this band, Fall Out Boy, and I don't believe I had specifically heard of them. He was very excited about me being involved in the record and said he thought I’d be a perfect fit and could he send me some demos from the upcoming record, which he did. They probably were on CDs at that point. I don't remember how many he sent me—maybe five, a handful—and my initial reaction was that I was not interested in doing the record. I just felt like the songs weren’t that...
