According to a fan submission from the Jimmy Eat World show last night -- they were recording the performance. I got a kick out of the "source" being "I'm staring at crowd mics right now." Well played ManchesterOrch8.

Last night at Manchester Orchestra's sold out NYC show, the band played a couple of new songs (one of which was "Cope." Both songs were very loud and very catchy.) Before one of them, Andy Hull announced to the crowd a cryptic and possibly sarcastic statement, which is paraphrased below.
We have a new record that's never going to come out. But if it did come out, this song would be on it.
Hopefully this is just Mr. Hull messing with us, but who knows. Either way, check out the band's tour dates for the rest of the year, and recordings of some of their new songs live, in the replies.
A few AP users attended tonight's date of the Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Fest, at the end of which headliner Dave Chappelle had an unusual set. After about five minutes of trying to do his act per usual, repeated shouts of either praise or Chappelle's Show quotes from the crowd prompted him to say that 'you are wasting your money, I'm still getting paid.' As the shouting continued, he stopped his act, sat on the stage, and began smoking, refusing to continue until it quieted down. The audience began to turn on him, and Chappelle began saying how bad the crowd was. After about twenty-five minutes of back-and-forth with the crowd, he began reading from a book aloud on the edge of the...
Wednesday night, at Pete Wentz's book signing, a fan caught up with Pete and asked if they were thinking about doing a Take This to Your Grave 10-year anniversary tour.

At Yellowcard's show in Fargo this past Sunday, Ryan Key said that whatever they do for Ocean Avenue's 10th anniversary would be "much more than a tour." Any ideas what they could be up to? Maybe a 10th anniversary re-release?
A fan has written in that Chad Gilbert of New Found Glory claimed during last night's "Road to Warped UK" show at Nottingham Rock City that the "Warped UK festival in London is a tester," and "if it is well received then Vans will set up a full Warped Tour UK leg in 2013 in major cities around the country."
At Mark Hoppus' talk at the Oxford University Union last night, Mark stated in the post talk Q&A that Tom was due to start pre-production on the new Blink 182 album this week.

At Anberlin's show last night in Nashville, Stephen Christian announced the band's new album will be named Vital and that more details will come soon. He said it is Anberlin's "most aggressive" record to date and the band performed one new song.
The Gaslight Anthem shot a music video for "45" at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park yesterday. Instead of just playing the single over and over again, it appears as though the band played a couple of extra songs in between six performances of "45" for the crowd. One fan told us, "I've never seen Brian happier and he talked about a bunch of stuff on stage including Jesse Lacey, Bruce Springsteen, Jawbreaker, @jadedpunkhulk and more. The band also added a third guitarist." Check out a video from the video shoot in the replies along with the setlist.

Fans report in: At the Road to Ruin Festival in Philadelphia Tigers Jaw performed as a four piece (minus Ben Walsh). The entire set was extremely awkward and guitarist Adam McIlwee commented, "If he doesn't show up, he is a coward" at the beginning of the set. We've reached out for comment and will update this post if we hear anything.
Update: The label has said that Ben was not there "probably because of school."Scratch that: At a wedding.

This submission is the first we've seen of it, but a fan just wrote in that at the Glamour Kills show last night in Pomona CA, Soupy from The Wonder Years announced that the band recorded an album this past winter in Huntington Beach, CA. Anyone else there? Wonder what it could be? We've reached out to the band for comment/confirmation, and we'll keep you updated.

Update: A few readers are writing in the comments that Soupy was specifically talking about when and where Suburbia... was recorded, and not a "new" release. Good bet it seems.
A fan has written in from the road and said that he talked to the bass player of mewithoutYou last night, they will be going on a eight week headlining tour in June, July, and August.

House of Heroes played in Columbus last night, premiering about 5 new tracks that, according to the submitter: all sound amazing. You can see a clip of one of them here. Our news tipsters says, "The new songs are all pretty heavy, but have great poppy hooks to them. It looks like this might be they're best album yet. Also, Tim said that they will be releasing a new single and a b-side pretty soon, but the album won't be out for awhile."
Last night in Pittsburgh at the I Am The Avalanche show, Vinnie told the crowd that they will be back in the fall on a really big/cool tour. He said he wasn't allowed to say more beyond that at this point. Also he said the new record should be out in October.
