Hello good patrons of AbsolutePunk.net! I bid you all a happy Tuesday and hope you are not as hot as I am right now. I just wanted to remind everyone that we'll be having an industry chat with the owners of Run for Cover, No Sleep, and Topshelf Records this Thursday, April 5, at 7 p.m. EST / 4 p.m. PST. Don't forget about it! I'll remind you all again tomorrow!
Thomas Nassiff on 04/03/12 - 11:47 AM
Following up our chat with Josh Terry, we are now excited to announce another industry chat right here on AP.net. Chatting with us on Thursday, April 5 at 7 p.m. EST / 4 p.m. PST will be Jeff Casazza (owner, Run for Cover Records), Chris Hansen (owner, No Sleep Records) and Seth Decoteau (owner, Topshelf Records). You can come by and ask the dudes anything you want about what it was like to raise their respective independent labels from probably dirty, smelly apartments to prominence in the current scene, about what they have going on in 2012, about their tattoos, about what kind of pizza they like and what they do right before bed each night. See you all on April 5!

Update: The band has headed off to go do a signing at their show. Huge thank you to the band for doing this with us. Hopeless Records sent us some photos of the band while they were chatting on the website -- I tossed 'um on Facebook if you want to see what the guys are up to.

Starting at 5pm (PST), we've got The Used hanging out with us and chatting in this very thread. Hit the replies to talk with the band about their new album, upcoming tour, recording process, anything at all. The album is available today on iTunes and Amazon.

The band will be chatting under the following blue usernames: Bert_TheUsed, Dan_TheUsed, Jeph_TheUsed, and Quinn_TheUsed.
Jason Tate on 03/26/12 - 02:33 PM
If you've been following the news posts, you've seen a bunch of song streams from The Used lately. Today it's our turn to bring you a brand new song from the band's upcoming album, Vulnerable. We've got "This Fire" streaming for you on the band's AP.net profile (and in the replies). Check it out.

Also, we'd like to announce that on Monday, March 26th - the band will be here on the website chatting in a thread on the homepage. They'll be here at 5pm (PST), so you won't want to miss that! It'll be your chance to talk with the band about their upcoming album, tour, recording process, anything at all. So, mark those calendars - and make sure you've got your account all set up.

Or how to get involved? Or what it's like behind the scenes? Now is a great time to find out.

Josh started his career when he was 20 years old by starting a management company...

Tonight at 8PM EST is the 54th Annual Grammy's award show and I'll be live-blogging the telecast to give my fifteen cents on the winners, the losers, the performers, and everything else in between. This year's show has a dark cloud over it, as R&B legend Whitney Houston passed away the night before. There will be a tribute dedicated to her led by Jennifer Hudson and other artists that haven't been announced yet. This will be the second tribute of the night, as the Grammy's will also pay their respects to the late Etta James, who passed in January.

Earlier today, Skrillex won three Grammy's, and he is also up for Best New Artist along with Bon Iver, Nicki Minaj, The Band Perry, and...
