Without further adieu, I present to you the ABSOLUTExclusivePete Wentzinterview. Many wonder why we deem this an "exclusive," so I thought of ways to explain it, but Pete put it perfectly:
"I feel like sometimes we dodge questions and interviews or give stock answers because we are scared of how the journalist will twist our words, but I have a lot of respect for my friend Jared over at Absolutepunk.net and did a lengthy interview with him without pulling any punches."
We here at AP.net are going to be starting a new ABSOLUTExclusive feature where we will have a new promotional and publicity photo section maintained by our very own Dave Gaslin. Any bands that want to be a part of this new endeavor, please contact Dave as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org. Details on how this will work and the purpose it'll serve will surface very soon.
We are proud to bring you an ABSOLUTExclusive from A Static Lullaby. Visit the band's AP.net profile to find two recently recorded demos. Expect the new record to be completed by the end of the summer.

ABSOLUTExclusive: So, here's the deal. I will be conducting a very rare, indepth interview with Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy. This isn't just going to be any interview, though; this is going to be a really honest, indepth Q&A where we won't be pulling any punches. So, if you have any questions, post them in the replies. This is going to be a two part series; after we do the first part and post it on here, then you'll be able to submit more questions in response to his answers.
Bands or labels interested in running an ABSOLUTExclusive feature (in which we debut a newly recorded, unreleased song exclusively on AP.net via download or stream) please email me to be considered, though we will be highly selective about which artists are chosen.
Previously featuring bands like Motion City Soundtrack, Gatsby's American Dream, Forgive Durden, ActionReaction, and Cavil at Rest, this program allows for great exposure to both current and potential fans; an excellent way to stir up a buzz for new releases.
