Recently got shown a cool service that lets you see what bands (or other people) have "fake or inflated" twitter follower counts. Interesting.

It looks like Minus The Bear and Cursive are playing live at The Vogue in Indianapolis on Sept. 17. Tickets go on sale this Saturday. Could this be a part of an as-of-yet-unannounced tour?

Paramore has started recording drums for its new album. Hayley Williams has also posted a new blog which you can read here.
From the BlogWhen I was 17, I started writing lyrics to a song that would later be called “Let The Flames Begin”. It was on our sophomore album, RIOT! I never felt like it really sounded as meaningful on record as it seemed when we played it live. Over the years, we added on and added on to it. Not only is it one of our favorites to play at shows but one of the most highly requested live songs by… ahem… you guys. Maybe it’s just because the song is heavier than most our other songs or maybe it’s cause it feels really emotional to sing some of those words. Either...

Rachel from He Is We is tweeting some interesting things: "The statement released was not completely accurate. I have never met Stevie Scott and she never reached out to me. This feels so fake & sad." and "I feel like He Is We has taken a very superficial and commercial turn. I'm tired of being quiet. I have shame flowing through my veins." .. followed by, "ashamed of the industry. i haven't heard from my band in 2 weeks." and, "its like they're using my illness to get you guys to see the shows. i have NOTHING to do with this and its feeling so fake."

Update: More keep coming in ...

Anyone hoping that the other members of D.R.U.G.S would be keeping the band together, just without Craig, - well, doesn't look like they can based on the contract they signed previously.

JadedPunkHulk sat down and interviewed Brian Fallon from The Gaslight Anthem.
From the ArticleI feel that people sometimes judge other people upon things they like and form little groups of yes-men and women. They only want to be around people and listen to bands that think the same way they do. This is not everyone, and truthfully, it’s not even everyone on Punknews.org. I actually read that site all the time to find out what records are coming out, who’s on tour, etc. The reason I said what I said about some of the people on there, is that I see them lift people up and then drop them to the ground all the time. They take things too far sometimes, they threaten people, they talk...

Frances Bean Cobain has released the following statement in regard to yesterday.
Message from FrancesWhile I'm generally silent on the affairs of my biological mother, her recent tirade has taken a gross turn. I have never been approached by Dave Grohl in more than a platonic way. I'm in a monogamous relationship and very happy.

Twitter should ban my mother.

Courtney Love makes Jonny Craig look like an upstanding citizen. She went on a tweeting tirade last night basically alleging that Dave Grohl tried to seduce Frances Bean (her and Kurt Cobain's daughter). Oh, sweet mother of fuck.

Fucked Up's frontman Damian Abraham is not a fan of Katy Perry's new video, in which she plays a Marine. He recently tweeted, "Seeing Katy Perry as a soldier in 'Part of Me' really makes me think that we need to start a war so she can go die." A little while later he followed that up with, "Yes I'm aware my last tweet was kinda dumb but so is glamorizing war to sell records to idiots. Katy Perry Still Sucks."

Don’t get your feeling hurt. It’s ok if you steal from me. Anything else I can do for free for you? Spoiled brats! It’s about time someone got pissed about this!

In today's "so weird it has to be true" news: The Supreme Court of Arkansas has overturned a murder conviction after a juror quoted Underoath on Twitter during the trial.
From the ArticleErickson Dimas-Martinez was convicted of murder in 2010 for shooting and robbing a teenager, Derrick Jefferson, after a party in Arkansas four years earlier. He had been due to be put to death by lethal injection. Mr Dimas-Martinez's lawyers appealed against the conviction after Randy Franco tweeted his thoughts despite the judge's instructions that jurors must not post comments on the internet or discuss the case on their mobiles.

Mr Franco tweeted: "Choices to be made. Hearts to be broken......
