I hope everyone has a great Labor Day. Stay safe and enjoy (hopefully) the day off.
Through the years the nation gave increasing emphasis to Labor Day. The first governmental recognition came through municipal ordinances passed during 1885 and 1886. From these, a movement developed to secure state legislation. The first state bill was introduced into the New York legislature, but the first to become law was passed by Oregon on February 21, 1887. During the year four more states — Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York — created the Labor Day holiday by legislative enactment. By the end of the decade Connecticut, Nebraska, and Pennsylvania had followed suit. By 1894, 23 other...
Well, here we are. we’d like to welcome our new singer Laurel Zarcilla to Smalls. after a couple of months of planing we were finally able to get together once tour came to an end. Gus came in contact with her through her YouTube channel where she had a pretty good following.
They would never turn anything down, and they constantly had new material. We kind of made that our approach in Empire!, which is why we’ve got so many splits, so many projects, so many little releases.
Matt Sharp, formerly of Weezer, talks to Flavorwire about the new Rentals album and his influence on Weezer's early albums.
Would it have been any better or much worse? Would people have said, "Oh my God, Weezer's in Nashville making an acoustic record!"? Maybe! Or maybe people would have said, "This is the most boring record I've heard in my fucking life!" There’s this idea that I would have been a one remedy fix-all, but there’s also that possibility of, "be careful what you wish for." Maybe it would have been a much bleaker thing with me in there. Who knows? I would have maybe put us down very pretentious roads.
Every single dollar we brought with us, every single penny that we have earned over the past month of touring overseas has been stolen. Licenses, credit cards, essential medical supplies, laptops, electronic equipment, even down to our toiletries, GONE. In a matter of minutes, our livelihood has been taken from us. Our dream come true has become the exact opposite.
The book is loosely based on Springsteen’s song of the same name, and inspired by the 1950′s children’s book “Brave Cowboy Bill.” According to its Amazon page, the book is about “a modern legend of a criminal who starts out in diapers and confronts the roughest edges of adulthood.”
Well, the record is what I did during difficulties. But I wouldn’t say the record is directly about the difficulties — not as much as people think. I’m not writing a news column. It’s not like, here’s the details and here’s the street name. It’s not the Kardashians, it’s a band. I want to write songs people can relate to right away. But I try to write in a broader sense. So it may seem very specific, but it’s not necessarily about the things you think. It’s a funny way of trying to articulate yourself in a song, and sometimes it’s very difficult.
Andrew McMahon will release a new song and post pre-orders on early next week.
It’s been a great summer of touring, seeing both new faces and old; nothing beats the experience of getting on stage night after night, and I'm so thankful to those of you were able to make it out to support us. I know you’re all ready for some new music, and this is why you’re receiving this email. A few hours after most of you end your Labor Day festivities, I’ll be premiering a new song! Not only that, but you’ll also be able to pre-order the first album from Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness!
The pre-order will go live Monday night/Tuesday morning at midnight EST on iTunes and the physical pre-order...
You can check out our brand new interview with Palisadeshere. The band just finished recording a brand new record with Eric Ron at Grey Area Studios, which is set to release later this year.
Right now, it's "Nut up or shut up", proving time. Honestly, I feel like we have a lot to prove, and I feel on this album we did. I think one of the best thing that we found with this new album coming out is that we truly found out who Palisades is.
Just a friendly reminder to make sure you check us out on other social networks. We are on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Last.fm, and Rdio. The AP.net staff can also be found elsewhere online, this post highlights where. Show us some love.
