You can read our interview with French pop-punk band Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! here. The band is currently out on the road with For All Those Sleeping and Upon This Dawning.
When things happen, they happen. A lot of the time there is nothing you can do to change life experiences, you can just be a spectator and do your best to adapt to it, even if it seems impossible. We do our best to live every single day as if it were our last. We are alive today, we live in the moment.

In a recent PropertyOfZack interview, Cory Brandan of Norma Jean stated that his band is considering writing and recording an EP in 24 hours sometime this year.
CB: We have one song that got scrapped from this record, but I think we’ll probably just write something in a couple of weeks and go for it. We also want to do this cool thing we were talking about: writing and recording an EP in 24 hours. Film it and stay up…
POZ: Just go from beginning to end in one day?
CB:Yeah. So we’re going to start working on that pretty soon too. That will be fun. We’re going to do some fun, different stuff. I don’t want to keep doing… I’ve been doing this so long it’s like, “Ok here’s the cycle: we put...

We caught up with Joshua Radin to talk a little bit about his upcoming album.
I guess I don't see the point anymore in waiting for labels (machines) to get their ducks in a row. The people want their entertainment faster these days. And I have been feeling slightly prolific in terms of musical inspiration. A few years ago I may have waited to put this album out, but in 2013, it seems like the public is ready to devour new music at a much quicker pace than in previous years.

Our interview with The Joy Formidable can be found here.
[Wolf's Law] is this scientific term and theory, like you described, of bones being able to adapt to different types of stresses. We’re always interested by language and imagery in language. Like many things do, it seemed to have a relevance to the tracks we were starting to write, the album we were starting to make.

In an interview earlier today with Alan Day (Four Year Strong, The Here and Now), we have confirmed that Four Year Strong is not breaking up, going against many rumors flying around earlier today. In the interview, which you can read here, we spoke to Alan about his new project, The Here and Now, which has a new EP called Born To Make Believe Part I available now for name-your-own-price download via Black Numbers. He told us that his upcoming tour dates would be played with a full band for the first time and also discussed influences and the writing/recording process.
There's no real plans with Four Year Strong right now. Like...we are not breaking up, and that's what a lot of people...

In the meantime it's streaming over here and you can grab an instant download code if you pre-order it right now.
Desperate Ground is when you basically have to fight or flee, you have no choice, you can’t stay where you are. It’s urgent and critical, you’ve got to run or fight. That’s the scenario we tried to go for in every song on this record, that’s what it’s all about.

I had the opportunity to speak with Buddy Nielsen of Senses Fail and we talked about his band's new album, Renacer, and the inspiration behind the album, the mindset while recording it, and what why it's important to be a veteran band helping out younger bands. You can read the entire thing here.
We don’t make music to make it anymore; we don’t make music to, you know, pay our bills. We do it because we love it and that takes so much pressure off what you have to do. You put a record out there and hope that…you do it for yourself and you can actually do that, because most bands up and coming think that they have to write a record that appeals to this fan and these kids like this and we...

PureVolume recently interviewed Hayley Williams of Paramore and they talked about the band's new self-titled album (in stores tomorrow), the Farro Brothers, and the solo career that never was.
And to be honest with you, there’s no way that ‘Hayley Williams’ would be around as long as Paramore's been around—it just would never work. I think people want what’s real and what’s genuine, and what’s genuine for me is being the singer of this band. Selling my name on a billboard or on the cover of a CD? That just wouldn’t be me. And I just don’t think that ‘Hayley Williams’ would have survived on her own.

In a recent PropertyOfZack interview; Brian Weatherbox mentioned that the band's new album has been recorded and now they are working on finishing it and mastering it, as well as looking for labels.
We have a new record that we recorded. After trying to mix it ourselves with friend’s help, we realized we were in over our heads. Now we’re slowly getting to the point where we have some money and want to mix it. It’s been a really long, drawn out process. We were mixing it for six months before we decided to go with the guy who did our last shit. We were starting to think that somehow we fucked it all up, like maybe we had recorded it wrong. Finally, after at least six months of mixing,...

PureVolume recently spoked with Johnny Marr.
PV:Everyone keeps jabbering on about a Smiths reunion. But wouldn’t a Smiths reunion be a pretty pathetic affair?

PropertyOfZack recently sat down with Josh of Stick To Your Guns and discussed the band’s current tour, continuing to tour with different types of bands and crowds, and the band's goal to release a new album in 2014.
Actually. I say yeah, we’re going to take some time off, but what will happen every single time we say we’re going to take some time off, is another tour comes along. We love touring so much that we end up taking it. Jesse and I, actually in the last two days, have been working on a new song. When we just had a couple of weeks off, Chris was working on some songs. So we’ve actually already started working on new music, we just figured we’d go ahead and get a jump start on it...

It's a big week for Max Bemis (Say Anything) as the first issue of his new comic book series, Polarity, hits stores today. We haven't heard too much from him recently as he's been busy with the comic series, his numerous musical projects, and, you know, being a new dad. Luckily, Max was able to find some precious free time last week to speak with me about what it's like being a new father and how Polarity came to be, as well as some very informative updates about his projects, especially a peak into what we should expect on the next Say Anything record and how the AP.net community influenced it.
And also, just sonically, and I know I’m being a tease, but there’s definitely going to...

PureVolume spoke with Dan Kjaer of Iceage and discussed the Danish youth, government, and punk rock in general.
I used to be political and stuff, but nowadays I just think that you should try to do what you think is right and have fun and do good work. Aside from that, I don’t think I have a philosophy that I can describe or believe in. But I believe in something. But I guess just with the band and stuff, we try to do really good music and do it in a way like no one else.

PureVolume sat down with Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio to discuss the band's upcoming new album.
I mean all of my songs for the most part, with the exception of "The Temptation Of St. Anthony," are basically a love/apology letter to my ex-girlfriend who is on the cover of the album. We're still really close but it was pretty rough for a while there and I wrote it during those rough periods. There's very little metaphor, which has always been something we used. It's still on the record but it's pretty obvious what the songs are about and I'm happy with it. I think that's the way we wrote our early songs and some of the lyrics are pretty cringeworthy but it's honest. So it is for me an...

PureVolume sat down with Texas Is The Reason to discuss the band's final shows.
There was a period where we said, "Why say no? Let's keep the door open." But it's a lot of work to be in Texas is the Reason. [Laughs] It's so much fucking work and I can't have that window open while I'm focusing on other things, so I want that to be clear to the people who care about these shows. I don't want people to go, "Well, I thought they'd come back." Now that the songs are recorded and The Complete Collection is out, I really feel like our work here is done.

PropertyOfZack recently sat down with James Dewees (Reggie and the Full Effect) and they talked about RATFE, MCR, and a joint EP with Matt Pryor on Equal Vision.
We have an EP coming out on Equal Vision Records soon. It’s like three songs. He’s happy and I’m really happy with it. When we started playing together again, it came about by me sending him demo songs. Since I’ve been home I’ve just been in the basement writing music. Ideas just keep pouring out. Some of them don’t sound Reggie enough to be Reggie, so I’d send them to Matt. He’d send them back with vocals that would blow me away.

PropertyOfZack recently sat down with Dave Elkins (Mae; Schematic) and they talked about the upcoming Destination: Beautiful Tour and more.
I do know that if we’re going to do Destination: Beautiful, more people know Mae for The Everglow than Destination: Beautiful so it would not make sense to do DB and not do The Everglow. So in 2015 we’d have to re-approach that again. We’ve sat across a table over the last several weeks and said, “Well hey, if we did this again what would we want it to look and feel like?” All we know is that when we get together, and we plug in and we play, that’s what feels right. All the business that happens in the middle of it, it just feels right. When you get...
