You can read part one of our interview with Buddy Nielsen of Senses Fail here. The band is currently doing a 10th anniversary headlining tour for Let It Enfold You, and it's definitely not a tour to be missed. Part two will be up tomorrow, in which we talk about the future of the band, including a new record and what it'll sound like.
It was a very difficult time frame, and I think if we had stayed on Geffen, we wouldn’t be a band now…or we could be as big as Fall Out Boy, you never know. We took the risk, I always lean towards “Let’s take the concept of being a band for 20, 30 years versus taking the gamble”. We very well could’ve stayed on Geffen, had a song, had it work out and ...

Rocky Loves Emily have left Tooth and Nail Records and have released the new song "Hypocrite." It's in the replies.
Some of you may already know through word of mouth, but we wanted to officially announce we are no longer on Tooth and Nail Records. Our first single "Hypocrite" and our upcoming record "Miserable Love" are going to be entirely independent. We all grew up listening to Tooth and Nail artists and it was a dream come true when we signed, however with a lot of life's journeys, what you want isn't always what you need (and things aren't always what they seem.) We had some really cool opportunities and experiences because of the label. For example, buying our own record at a...

Techcrunch is reporting that Apple plans to shut down Beats Music.
Many engineers from Beats Music have already been moved off the product and onto other projects at Apple, including iTunes. It’s not clear when exactly Jimmy Iovine and Dr Dre’s music service will be shut down or what Apple will do with streaming, but every source with knowledge of the situation that we talked to agreed Apple plans to sunset the Beats Music brand.

Update: Some more reporting from Re/Code calls into question the Techcrunch story.
Tom Neumayr says the TechCrunch story is “not true”, but wouldn’t elaborate. I can elaborate a bit more, based on conversations with people familiar with Apple’s thinking:...

State Lines are taking an indefinite break.
probably a good time to address some information, as you probably couldve guessed/ or alot of you have just known from talking to us, the band is now inactive, we say inactive because when bands break up i think sometimes things tend to get corny and no band ever really officially seems to break up break up, to stop this from happening to us, we're just basically saying were inactive, incase the day shows up where we do get together to play a show. that being said i can pretty much guarantee that wont happen anytime soon. theres honestly no drama, we've been playing music together for the last 4 years, we started as teenagers and now were...

Thom Yorke sure seems like he's teasing something music related. The Verge speculates it may be for Atoms for Peace.
f course, Radiohead's fanbase has since sprung into action theorizing what, if anything, Yorke is trying to convey with the image. Because of the fact that Radiohead reportedly has just started making its new album, this probably isn't a tease that the album is being pressed quite yet. It's possible that the record could contain some new music from Yorke's second band Atoms for Peace — in the background of the image, you can see artwork in the same style of the group's 2013 release Amok.

Guided By Voices have broken-up.
Guided By Voices has come to an end. With 4 years of great shows and six killer albums, it was a hell of a comeback run. The remaining shows in the next two months are unfortunately canceled. Our sincere apologies to those that have purchased tickets and made travel plans.

Marvel have posted up a look at Gerard Way's upcoming run writing for Spider-Man.
Way elaborates: “In a futurist city fairly different from the New York we are familiar with, our version of Spider-Man takes the shape of a government project: SP//dr. SP//dr is comprised of three vital components: a pilot, a machine, and a radioactive sentient spider acting as one half of the brain that makes it all work. Peni Parker is a young girl, who, left parentless, is adopted by her Aunt May and Uncle Ben, the two heads of the SP//dr project. When they realize Peni is the only one who can successfully pair with SP//dr, they make the unorthodox decision to train her as SP//dr's newest pilot.”
