In a new interview with Joey Armstrong of Emily's Army, he and PropertyOfZack discuss the positive and negative connection of being related to the lead singer of Green Day.
When I was younger I did. I was like, “Oh. Wow. Some people are harsh.” I’m really excited for this whole album to come out because we released one song out of sixteen and that one song – of course there are going to be people that compare me to my dad and to Green Day. Yeah, our influences include Green Day. It makes sense; I grew up listening to my dad. So I grew up listening to the same stuff he listened to. What I just want people to know is that some people go to work with their dads and some people go fishing...

You can read PureVolume's recent chat with The Wonder Years' frontman Dan Campbell here.
These songs are small pieces of a personal puzzle that equate to a cathartic hole—and that hole I feel can be generationally applied so on that small scale it's a really personal record. Lyrically, it's about me. It's about my life, and this idea that I tend to make excuses for fear of failure. I had to make excuses about why I wasn't going to get any better, why I wouldn't do anything bigger, why I was okay with being okay.

Check out PureVolume latest Q&A with Frank Turner here.
From a musical point of view, this album is very much a band album and I feel like my working relationship with the Sleeping Souls is in a really, really good place these days. Beyond that, from a lyrical perspective, it's a very personal kind of introspective record. There are various reasons why it worked out that way including events in my life. I never want to repeat myself so I didn't want to write another album about England. There's an almost detached thing about England Keep My Bones and I wanted to get something that was a little more roaring this time around.

You can check out PureVolume's recent interview with Andrew W.K. here.
I do hope—at this point, we’re looking at fall or winter—to have those open months. I need at least three months. The good thing is that I keep writing, whether it’s lyrics or melodies or rhythms or riffs. I do require some unbroken time to record the whole thing. That’s the thing about albums—you have to make them. I’ll release it after I finish making it, I think. I was going to try to put it out before it was recorded, but people advised me that it might not be a smart idea.

You can read Under The Gun's recent interview with Daniel Taylor of Surrogate here.
The downside of it though, is that it sort of marginalizes what you do, because there’s not the credibility of being on a label, or the push that a label gives you to help you breakthrough to press and blogs. So you kind of get lumped in with the unwashed masses of bedroom bands and high school garage bands, which is fine: there’s a lot of amazing music being made these days in bedrooms and by teenagers in garages. But in terms of trying to gain any sort of broad exposure for your band, especially when your band is just a bunch of late-20s/early-30s beardos, not having a label to hang your hat on makes it...

Our buddies at BUZZNET recently interviewed Matty Healy of The 1975
We genuinely did not expect our popularity to accelerate in the way that it did after we released 'Sex and 'Chocolate' - we've been away since January so we've not really been witness to much of the developments back home. It's strange. Exciting though. We cannot wait to play for new people.

I caught up again with Issues while they were in Portland, OR as part of A Day To Remember's U.S. Headliner, and you can read our interview here. In the interview we talk about a "re-imagining" of the band's debut EP Black Diamonds, titled Diamond Dreams, Warped Tour, as well as potentially working with Jeremy McKinnon in the future.
"With A Day To Remember, Pierce The Veil, and Silverstein, I learned the most by just watching and observing how headliners conduct themselves, how they act, as well as the caliber of show that they put on. It really just shows us where we need to be as a band eventually. They've shown us great examples of how not to be just another band, but THE band - these...

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...
