This might not normally be categorized as news, but I couldn't legitimize not posting something this awesome. If you head here you can buy a full-on Christmas sweatshirt from the Descendents, featuring Milo and coffee mugs and all.

By Autumn's End (of Buffalo, NY) have two new demos on their Myspace page. They'll be touring heavily this summer and also need help booking dates along the East Coast, southern, and southwestern United States (exact cities are on Myspace). If you enjoy Every Time I Die, The Chariot, or Evergreen Terrace, these guys should be right up your alley.

Novice's new album, Forgive The Silence, is up for pre-order through Smartpunk.com for only a few more days. If you haven't done so already, check out the band's new songs on Myspace.com. The album officially releases on May 23rd; since the band is unsigned the only way to purchase the album is through Smartpunk or at their shows.

Hey guys and gals. I just returned from a great show with The Receiving End Of Sirens, As Tall As Lions, and A Thorn For Every Heart. If you get the chance to head to this show, take full advantage. If you haven't checked out As Tall As Lions yet, I'd recommend doing so now. The Receiving End Of Sirens are one of the best live shows I've ever seen and this tour is worth the money to go to. So check it out! Dates can be found here.

From HitsDailyDouble: Victory Records has asked for a summary judgment against former distributor Koch Entertainment, seeking an outstanding balance of $51,246.40, attorney's fees of $25,690 and an additional amount of $257,817.29 Canadian in unaccounted inventory for a total of $300k in a New York Supreme Court motion filed yesterday. The suit claims "Koch's failure to meet its payment obligations is a breach of the contract." Koch distributed Victory product in Canada from 1998-2001, and the agreement was then extended to June 2005. Victory is now distributed north of the border by Universal Music Canada. Victory head Tony Brummel has already racked up another $1.75 in angry e-mails...

House of Heroes played here with Love Arcade and Dropping Daylight last night. Love Arcade and Dropping Daylight both played great sets, and if you haven't check out either band, you should do so now. But, once again, I can not say enough about House of Heroes, or their live performance. These guys sound just like, or better than they do on their album. You can head to the band's myspace page to check out the rest of the dates. Also, they have created a myspace page that will be considered a tour blog/journal and you can view it here.

Smartpunk, June, and Ascend Apparel have worked together for a special promotion. The first 30 copies of June's If You Speak Any Faster sold over Smartpunk will include a free shirt designed by Ascend, featuring June. This is a limited edition run, and after these are gone, AscendApparel.com will be the only place to get them."
