Anthony Raneri of Bayside and Steve Soboslai of Punchline recently wrapped a brief tour together, and I captured the final date at T.T. the Bear's Place in Cambridge, MA on April 29 for our Live Sessions. Head to the replies to watch full acoustic sets from each musician.
Punchline bassist Chris Fafalios has released a follow-up statement regarding his ultimatum that he would leave the band if their new EP didn't reach #1 on iTunes. Watch it in the replies. Spoiler alert: he's here to stay!
Bright and Early will release a free acoustic EP this Thursday, January 12. You can check out their cover of Punchline's "Battlescars" on bandcamp. Catch frontman John Browne on an acoustic tour with A Loss For Words and more this weekend.
UPDATE: The free downloads are gone, but the EP is still available on iTunes. You can download their previous album, Delightfully Pleased, for free here.
Punchline are so delightfully pleased with the response to their new EP, So Nice To Meet You, that they are giving it away to AP.net readers. The first 37 people to e-mail TDR Records will receive a free copy. Don't forget to tune into Mobbed tonight on Fox to see the band!
The Punchline album hit #1 on the "rock charts" and has climbed as high as #7 on the overall charts. They're still aiming for #1 overall though, so ... figured I'd make another post about grabbing it here. Doing what we can to help.
2011 was a banner year for Punchline, but 2012 is already off to a great start for the Pennsylvania pop punk underdogs. They will release a new EP, So Nice To Meet You, tomorrow via their own Modern Short Stories. Founding member Chris Fafalios made the courageous ultimatum that he would put down his bass for good if the EP did not make it to #1 on iTunes. We don't want to see that happen, so we have the first song, "Universe," streaming on the band's AP.net profile to give you a taste of how good it is. Be sure to support them by picking up a copy tomorrow, and then tune into Mobbed on Fox this Wednesday to see frontman Steve Soboslai talk about his feelings on national TV.

Chris Fafalios posted a new song entitled "The World Won't Wait For You" on soundcloud. You can also pick up his band Punchline's latest album, Delightfully Pleased, in a number of unique packages here.
Happy birthday to Punchline's Steve Soboslai. Leave him well wishes in the replies. In celebration of this momentous holiday, Steve posted a new Blue of Colors song entitled "Happy As We Are (Edward Norton)" on soundcloud.
Punchline did something a bit unorthodox for their backstage sessions: after their set, they sat on the stage and played a couple of acoustic tunes for the remaining audience. In addition to performing their song "Whatever I Want, Whenever I Want," the band's punk alter-egos, The Vipers, took over to play "PMFA." Head to the replies for the videos.
