Today we're bringing you a new song from Elway called "Patria Mia (Room 20)" and it's off of Leavetaking, which will be released June 25th digitally and July 2nd physically through Red Scare Industries. This catchy album closer (which you can find in the replies) is one of my personal favourites and if you're into bands such as The Menzingers you'll probably enjoy this. I also spoke with vocalist/guitarist Tim Browne about the record and you can check out that interview here.
Leavetaking is a little bit different, when we made the record we intentionally wanted to focus more on lyrics and song writing rather than making big huge anthems and sing alongs. God willing ...

The New York Times have posted one of the first interviews with Kanye West in quite some time. It's a career spanning piece that even touches on Kanye's personal life and family. You can check out the quotable masterpiece here.
I think you got to make your case. Seventh grade, I wanted to be on the basketball team. I didn’t get on the team, so that summer I practiced. I was on the summer league. My team won the championship; I was the point guard. And then when I went for eighth grade, I practiced and I hit every free throw, every layup, and the next day I looked on this chart, and my name wasn’t on it. I asked the coach what’s up, and they were like, “You’re just not on it.” I was...

You can read PureVolume's recent chat with Hawthorne Heights' drummer Eron Bucciarelli here.
It's a couple of years into a dystopian future and totalitarian corporation has taken over in the wake of a disaster that we're calling The Fires. We pulled from a lot of different sources [of inspiration] like V For Vendetta, THX 1138, Running Man and 1984. This corporation has taken over and it's forcing the population to take all these pills and make them roll over and do their bidding, but then there's a resistance group called Zero Collective that has decided enough is enough and wages a Robinhood-style backlash against this corporation to try to regain their freedom.

You can read Under The Gun Review's recent interview with Will Pugh (Cartel) here.
Oh, absolutely. We’ve been talking around that idea for probably the last year or so. Like, “Are we going to do a Chroma tour now or are we going to wait until 10 years?” You know, this is the tenth year of Cartel. In October it will be ten years since we recorded The Ransom EP. So we thought “Well could we get away with just a ten year anniversary? We’d just play Chroma and a collection of other stuff. What are we going to do?” So we said, “screw it, we’ll just wait.” We’re close enough. It’ll definitely happen.

With The Dangerous Summer announcing their new album, Golden Record today, I figured it was only right to ask AJ some questions about the new album and the future of the band. You can read my short interview with him here.
Matt and Ben were definitely sent from heaven. They came at the perfect time. We were trying out drummer after drummer and guitarist after guitarist. After so many misses, we finally found the men we were looking for. It was so hard to go on day after day, not feeling like our band was at it's full potential, but we made it through. We always make sure that we push through any hard time. When Tyler left the band, we recorded War Paint a month later. When Bryan left, we...

You can read PureVolume's recent chat with Stick To Your Guns' guitarist Josh James here.
I love that we're not pigeonholed. The fact that we've been able to go out with a band like Motionless in White and then go out with Pennywise and Lagwagon—it's just mind-blowing to me. We did a tour in Europe that was us, Hatebreed and Agnostic Front and then this summer we are doing Warped Tour. It makes it a lot more interesting for us because it gets boring playing to the same types of crowds all the time and you burn out those people. One of the best parts about being in a band is playing in front of new people and having that almost nightly challenge of of "Look, this crowd has never heard of...

Our interview with Jimmy Eat World can be found here.
Many writing and recording musicians write based on trying to chase a particular listener, chase the approval of somebody besides yourself, whether that person is a radio programmer, a quote unquote “fan,” or the 18-25 demographic. When you start chasing the approval of some completely unknown, unquantifiable listener, then you’re going to end up with something that you’re not going to be proud of. It’s not going to be rewarding. It’s not going to feel good for you to put your name on. Is there a single? Is there not a single? Who’s going to like this record? Are your fans going to like this record? Is anybody going to like...

You can read our new interview with Stick To Your Guns here. Be sure and catch the band on this summer's Vans Warped Tour, as well as check out their split with The Story So Far.
From The InterviewWe'll tour with anyone and anywhere, because that's all I've wanted to do is play shows. So obviously if I can play shows with whoever, wherever, we definitely will, especially with a band like For Today - we look at that as an opportunity to bring a different way of thinking to the table in a room full of kids who are incredibly impressionable. You know what I mean? There's a lot of kids that grow up the same way, I grew up in a house that was religious, I grew up going to church and stuff like...

You can read PureVolume's recent chat with Bring Me The Horizon' frontman Oliver Sykes about tattoos and his recent comic book release here.
It was awesome. I never even got that first box, actually—I just got a sample copy. But when that sample came, I took it on home and read it immediately. And it was so cool to finally see it in the, uhh, flesh. So to speak. I guess doing comics was something I always wanted to do, but I never really thought about actually doing it. But Ben Ashton-Bell, the designer of it, he was really inro the idea, and that’s how it started, how it all kicked off. So we actually saw it through, and it’s really been a lot of fun.

PureVolume recently interviewed Janelle Monáe, which you can read here.
It was a great song to be a part of. But you’d have to ask them how thy found me—I was told that they were really big fans of The ArchAndroid, and they reached out two times to get me to be on “We Are Young.” And I was on tour and hella busy, but I listened to it and loved it and just said yes. So there you have it.

Today we're bringing you another edition of Looking Back and this time we're featuring Rise Against. While Revolutions Per Minute officially turned 10 last month, Fat Wreck Chords is reissuing an anniversary edition this coming Tuesday and you can still grab a pre-order over here. To start we have an interview with Joe Principe, which gets some of his perspective on the release. Then we want you to share your own thoughts about the record, which you can leave in the replies.

You can check out PureVolume's recent interview with Jared Leto (Thirty Seconds To Mars) here.
I don’t know ... but I think that the last album was about conflicts: We had a giant battle with our record company, they sued us for $30 million, we fought them for two years and subsequently made a film about it as well, called Artifact. But it was an album about conflict and survival. And this is an album that’s much more reflective. And it was made without the burden of a giant war on our shoulders, and it was actually really a lot of fun. It was exactly how it should be.
