Old Flame and Ready Set Reset are releasing a split titled Two Sides to Every Story tomorrow via Broken Heart Records, but you can stream it in the replies right now. Old Flame is an indie pop/rock group featuring former members of Houston Calls and Paulson, while Ready Set Reset is an up-and-coming pop punk act out of Detroit.
Members of Paulson and Houston Calls are playing together in a new project called Future of the Party. The band will make their live debut this Friday, April 1st at School of Rock where they will open the Folly reunion show. Check out an unmastered demo here.
Last night at Valencia's show in Boston, Shane announced that the reason the band cancelled a couple of dates on their current tour was so that he could be with his mother, who just had surgery for breast cancer. He then dedicated "Listen Up" to her during the band's encore. Our thoughts and best wishes go out to Shane, his mom, and his family.
EDIT: It was brought to my attention that Fight Fair and Meese have been added to the tour. Also, The Summer Set have dropped off Fight Fair, Meese, and You, Me and Everyone We Know have replaced them. The tour poster can be seen here.
