PureVolume was invited recently to Buddy Nielsen's (Senses Fail) home. Nielsen went through his old band keepsakes, introduced his mom, talked about that one time he forgot lyrics on Late Night With Conan O'Brien.

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?
JM: Ha! I’ll give ‘em your number! Every day I get asked that question, and you can just have a special Batphone and answer the question for me!

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...

I’d watch cartoons, and I would just kind of like… I would want to make them because there weren’t any limitations. Even at a young age, I didn’t see limitations.

PropertyOfZack recently interviewed the members of Twin Falls. They discussed how the band came together, what the band means for other projects, an album, tour, and more.
Chris: Further is my band, Dashboard is my band, and Twin Falls is my priority.
Suzie: Our Narrative record is recorded. It’s not mixed or mastered yet. The Narrative has released three albums and a vinyl on our own, over the last five years. We’re not interested on rushing it. We want a team to help us for this. The Narrative stuff has been moving slow. These guys have things going on too. There will be plenty of time for both of these things to coexist. I’m so excited about The Narrative record.

PropertyOfZack recently spoke with Craig Mabbitt of Escape The Fate. They discussed going through band members, changing major labels, getting their act together, and more.
It literally was just me, my drummer, a fill-in guitarist, a fill-in bassist, and we had just released the self-titled album. So everybody was like, “What the fuck is going on with these guys?” Shortly after that we were like, “We’ve got to start working on a new record.” Who’s going to be in the band? Who’s going to be on the record? We start working on it; we decided we’re going to get new management. Interscope at that point had already fired their whole rock department. So at first I was kind of bummed like,...

PureVolume sat down with Snoop Dogg to discuss his reggae-themed new album and clearing up any confusion for his fans.
But you know, that’s what comes with it: The job title has job requirements. Ramifications that come with the job. And we understand that where we come from, the neighborhood that I come from—that if we do join a gang or sell drugs, what comes with it. Either death, jail, murder, mayhem, robbery, kidnapping, or all of that. We understand that and we accept that. But it’s just a matter of, do you wanna better yourself and try to become something different and walk in a different, as opposed to the same light you’ve been patterned—or brainwashed—to know. So I chose to walk...

About a month ago, I had the opportunity to speak with Matt Skiba (Alkaline Trio) and discuss the band's first single, the upcoming new album My Shame Is True, and what it was like working with Bill Stevenson and Milla Jovovich. You can read it here.
I think that the things that inspired me is other music. I kind of went back, I was listening to The Idiot, for instance, when I hiked. That was like my hiking record. And it just sort of formulated from there and my mindset was just – I kind of wrote the song while I was hiking and I came back and just started writing it down. We all like those magic three chords and we’re influenced by the music that we love.

I am angry all the time. It is not an anger that manifests itself in destruction of property, and I am not looking for a fight, but if you have a sense of right and wrong, and your head is pulled out, there is a lot to be angry about. If you think everything is ok, then to me you're ok with everything, from marriage inequality to people trying to vote down the Violence Against Women Act. You can't let these cowards get away with this stuff.
