Check ... check ... is this thing on? The AbsolutePunk.net Podcast has returned. This week brings Joseph Marro stopping by to talk about the early years of The Early November, his time in Hellogoodbye, and his current adventures managing bands like You Blew It. Life in a band isn't always like it's made out to be in the movies. The episode can be streamed and/or downloaded in the replies -- and oh how we're glad to be back!

Old Friends Records celebrates its first release today with Hellogoodbye's Would It Kill You?, a digital deluxe re-issue of the band's latest full length which was previously released independently. The digital re-issue includes three live tracks from Daytrotter's Barnstormer Tour and the previously unreleased B-Side "Not Ever Coming Home". The album is also now available for pre-order as a marbled blue and white vinyl and T-shirt bundle on Old Friends' webstore.
Augustine from YMAEWK/Little Indianscommented in a thread called "Best Guitar Flips." He responded to another user and said he's almost finished self-producing an album for The Little Indians, as well as producing/recording other artists from Baltimore. He also says in the post that he is now a live member in Hellogoodbye since The Early November is back together (I'm guessing filling in for Joe Marro).
Hellogoodbye recently spent two days in Las Vegas writing and recording a new song entitled "Killin' Time." Watch a mini-documentary about the process in the replies, and stream/download the track here.
Hellogoodbye recently did a Nervous Energies session where they played two songs from their latest record and one brand new song. You can head to the replies to check out the videos and you can download a digital copy of the three songs for free right here.
