Matt Goddard of Chiodos took to the Vans Warped Tour twitter to answer some questions yesterday. When asked when we would hear new material he responded, "You'll be hearing some new stuff soon." Which seems to lead to the band releasing a song before they leave for Warped Tour, even if they're recording their new album after the tour. What do you think?
Chiodos posted a live acoustic video of "Baby, You Wouldn't Last A Minute On The Creek" from last week's Warped Tour kickoff party. The band also talked about its upcoming album in an interview. You can find both videos in the replies.
It looks like Chiodos have been demoing new material. The band also just announced a new show in San Diego on November 25th. Lastly, you can watch a new Alt Press feature called "Stand By Your Van" where the guys show off their van, MTV cribs style.

Last week blogs went buzzing about the departure of two members from Chiodos. Speculation also spread like wildfire about a possible return to the group from former frontman Craig Owens. This week I've been jotting down some thoughts on why an original line-up of any band is so important to us. What makes one person's addition or subtraction so crucial to any band? Do we sometimes hold onto the past so much, that we constantly base our future expectations on one album or song written years earlier? Give the piece a read, and let us know your thoughts on it in the replies. I'm very interested in the examples you guys come up with on this one.
In light of certain rumorsthis week, one of our staff members sat down with Craig Owens to talk about a lot of the hearsay that's been going around the Internet about a possible return to front Chiodos once again. Head to the replies to watch the exclusive video interview.
