Cassie Whitt, writing for Alt Press:
Flashback to 2005: I was that reviled age and waiting in line, clutching tickets for my first My Chemical Romance show (which I had cried and screamed over at my birthday party the week prior). I heard the man in front of me going on about “stupid, little My Chemical Romance fangirls” wearing the band’s T-shirts and “ruining” the show. I looked down at my brand new MCR shirt and hoodie and turned my back, self-consciously zipping up. It was easier than to think, “Is there something wrong with me? Am I stupid? Maybe he’s right. I can’t act like a stupid fangirl.”

Alt Press reached out to 37 female musicians about their experiences with sexism and five responded.
One of the most headache-inducing experiences I've had is being straight-up blocked from getting onstage by security even though I was carrying equipment and had a laminate. I walked up to the bouncer and asked him, “Hey, how do I get on the stage?” And he was like, “Why do you need to go there?” I said, “To sing,” and he sill wouldn't let me onstage until I was like, “Well we can wait here until no band starts playing because I'm not there.” Then he finally let me on.

Alt Press has posted an interesting article about Australian boy-band pop-punk stars 5 Seconds of Summer, in which the author makes the claim that this band could have major labels turning to scene bands yet again for radio success. Check out the band's video for "She Looks So Perfect" in the replies if you want to see a lot of people in their underwear.
Major labels are ready to push pop-punk again? Push on. The last time we saw an explosion of the genre with the full backing of the music industry, we got Blink-182, Sum 41, Good Charlotte, New Found Glory and more. Those bands sold millions of records. Those bands pushed the genre decades forward and inspired a massive subsequent wave...

You can stream a new Unwritten Law song entitled "Swan Song" here.
Quote“Swan Song” was the first song written for our new album. Scott [Russo, vocals] brought it to us to play and we all thought, "Hey, if everything goes up in a ball of flames, what better way to go out then with our swan song?" That also seemed like good title for the record.
