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. My personal memory can be found below.
Revolutions Per Minute was my first Rise Against record, which I ended up buying after seeing the music video for "Heaven Knows" on MuchMusic's The Punk Show. That...

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.

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...
