I purchased tickets to see The Middle East in Melbourne so I'm pretty thrilled. Also, Angus and Julia Stone should stop touring Europe because I miss them!

Although AJ (guy behind Soundwave) has said there most likely wouldn't be any sideshows, Yellowcard have confirmed they will be playing some separate shows while they're here.

Yellowcard has announced on their blog that “We will also be playing a couple of headlining shows while we are [in Australia for Soundwave Revolution]”. - read that on fasterlouder if that helps you out.

That's awesome. What would make it even better is if TDS played with them. Could happen now they're on the same label!

What's supposed to be revolutionary about the new Soundwave? A bunch of those bands have been on the Soundwave line-up before :/
I wish Thursday would do a club tour instead of festivals every time they're here.

About time Angelas Dish made a video for Crash. Best song on the album by far.

Outstanding video. These guys are criminally underrated.
