According to this article, the new Head Automatica single will be "Lying Through Your Teeth" and the video will be filmed sometime next month. Also, Daryl has a lot of music and lyrics ready for the next Glassjaw record; the band just needs a lot of time, money for recording, and to figure out who will release the new record.

According to Wikipedia, hellogoodbye's video for "Here In Your Arms" will be directed by Fred Savage (The Wonder Years). The concept features a sleep away camp whose counselors, unbeknownst to the campers, turn into zombies at night that like to have dance parties under the stars.

Catch 22 has posted the following update on their website.
Catch 22 UpdateHello Everyone,

The Holidays are upon us and while that means a bunch of laying around and doing nothing for most people, the hard working men of Catch 22 will squeeze in our last 5 shows of 2005 starting 12-26 through 12-30. We have been doing these shows for 5 years now and they have always been amazing. While we haven't officially ever named the tour Ryan has affectionately dubbed it "The Ball Drop Tour". We got a good laugh at practice when he blurted that out. Past opening bands on the "Ball Drop" tour have included Fall out Boy, Big Wig, Big D and the Kids Table, The Movie Life, Midtown, Punchline, and...

Stretch Arm Strong is heading out with Story Of The Year. All information can be found below.

Stretch Arm Strong Update:
About to head out to another show with our new friends in the Suicide Machines, Whole Wheat Bread and Fordirelikesake. Three days into the tour and we've been having a blast. Stopped in NYC Wednesday and had an amazing time, starting off by playing video games and eating pizza with our friends at WSOU, visiting Ground Zero, playing a packed show at the Tribeca and capping it off by filming a guest spot on Steven's Untitled Rock Show for Fuse. It was awesome. Let me just tell you this, Steven knows his punk rock. He ain't just some guy they dress up and have him...

Time and Distance will be playing a show this Sunday, November 13th @ Sin-e (150 Attorney St. At Staunton) in New York City, NY @ 8pm. The band would love to see anyone / everyone there. Rumor has it there may be some "important people" in attendance checking the band out, so they'd love to have some friendly faces around. The band is also playing two shows in New Jersey: 11/11 @ Bloomfield Ave. Cafe in Montclair, and 11/12 @ Hamilton St. in Bound Brook. Try to make it out if you can. So far the "Not My Town, Not My Shame" tour has consisted of: six shows, four states, two arrests, and an endless supply of bad jokes. Try to make it out to a show if you can. The band has also decided to...
