Thursday sent out a Myspace Bulletin telling everyone to check out their profile to get an in-studio update as they work on their new album. You can read the update below.

Thursday Update"So we're back up in Fredonia starting on the 2nd recording session with Dave Fridmann. The songs are turning out amazing. Yesterday Dave had me recording guitar tracks through a ripped 12" speaker that was laying on the floor. Let's just say I was surprised to hear how good it sounded. It's crazy how quickly everything is going this time around. We already will have recorded 10 songs by the end of today; some are in various stages of completion, but they all feel really good. We can't wait to...

Verus The Mirror has provied a studio update which you can read below.

Versus The Mirror Studio Updategreeetings. we are still shacked up in mesa/chandler, arizona finishing up our full length. we are almost done with vocals and should be moving onto mixing within the next week. so far, so good. the music sounds amazing. we are recording in an all analog format so the record sounds pretty live and intense. an interesting note to point out, no distortion was used on the guitars. none at all. we used a bunch of 60\'s and 70\'s amps and turned them up until the sound started breaking up and got a really raw and fierce tone with it. our producer Bob Hoag and his assistant Sean Hansen have...

Below is an update from Paper Models which they posted on their MySpace page:

Paper Models UpdateAlright my little sex machines, it's Alex here and I have some PAPER MODELS news. We just found out that we will be playing at Chain Reaction in Anaheim, CA the day after Christmas opening for the beautiful HELLOGOODBYE. This show should be amazing and if you want to come see us, and I know all of you do, then you need to buy tickets very soon because about 3/4 of the tickets have been sold already and 4/4 will have been sold by the date of the show. Yes, that means it will sell out so get yourself to a TicketMaster so you can witness the holiday duet that Forrest Scott Kline and I are...

Below is Tom Delonge's latest journal entry from MacbethFootwear.com:

Tom Delonge Journal Entryso here is some news for you.....First of all, anybody claiming they heard demos are full of shit. They are hearing old shitty recordings of blink, the music does not sound like blink or box car, so the speculation should end there. Second, the song to be released on December 13 is finished, but the label is too excited to release just a song, so at the last minute it got changed. Let's see, third, it isn't some depressing emo project, it is music that is best described as.....well, the best stuff I have ever done.....too vague?.....well, I promise my fans will like this the most out of...

Below is an update from Between Home and Serenity:

BHAS UpdateFor those of you who may or may not know, many things have been going on with our band as of late. As of November 23rd, Mike and Adam are no longer a part of Between Home & Serenity. We have asked that they exit our band due to musical differences as well as differences involving the future of Between Home & serenity. We are truly sad to see these guys leave but we must move on with positive actions for the band. We hope that everyone respects and supports the decision we have made. On a positve note, we are STILL playing the STORY OF THE YEAR/THE BRAVERY show on Dec 17th. This will possibly be the biggest show we\'ve ever...

Below is an update from The Static Age:

The Static Age UpdateWhile we realize we haven't been out on the road much since our tours over the Summer and into September, The Static Age is far from hibernation. When we're not actually touring (and Adam isn't modeling women's jeans), we do things like focus on writing the next album (a task that, thanks to a good bout of mania, now involves cutting down our number of "keepers" from 28 to 15 or so), hold drummer tryouts, look into a fifth member, plan some extensive touring (including European dates that we'll have more information about shortly), begin talks with potential new management, and the like.

That said, we think we have a...

Piebald Messagehello faithful servents of the 'bald,
we are making our way into the city of st. petersburg florida. iam excited to be here. we all are. it has been a long time since we have rocked the florida. last night, after the grueling overnight drive, we played at big daddys in tallahassee. good times were had by all. but then, while loading out, the unexpected happened...the 'bald had a major malfunction and we lost control of our normally well-oiled machine. bad words were thrown at each other like pies at a food fight. now idont usually let you all in on all the inner workings and occasional ugliness that happens, but this one was just...

Below is a quite informative and comprehensive update from Fat Wreck Chords:

Fat Wreck UpdateWe have a lot of great new records coming along for 2006 and all the bands happen to be in the studio right now. We must have every place booked in the Northern Hemisphere. Let's begin with with the old favorites: NOFX is presently in Japan taking a break from recording their new, as yet untitled record. This time the guys suckered Bill Stevenson and Jason Livermore into helping out at Motor Studios in SF. Their new full length should be out by April. Up next is The Lawrence Arms, who are also taking a break from the record-making process to read nerdy books and play some shows with Lagwagon....

Every Time I Die is currently in the middle of a massive sold out UK / Europe tour as main support for My Chemical Romance. The shows have been going amazing and both camps are killing over there. Gerard has come out and performed with the band during "Kill The Music" which he contributed vocals for on the band's latest album, Gutter Phenomenon; the audience has exploded. After this, the band will be heading to Australia for two weeks to headline from November 25th to December 4th. Once they return home, the band will do a first annual "Toys For Tots" show in their hometown of Buffalo on December 18th at The Town Ballroom (formerly Sphere).

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...

All Time Low Update:
Without further ado, I'd like to introduce the new website! Shnazzy isn't it, right? Right?? Yeah well ok. So All Time Low has been really busy as of late.

We are also hitting the road later in a week on a week long excursion to da dirty souf , hitting up many parts along the east coast. You can also check that out on the tour portion of the

Over It recently updated their tour journal and you can read that below. The band is currently on tour with MXPX, Relient K and Rufio.

Over it Tour UpdateOkay, remember how MxPx's bus broke down two days ago and we carried some of them away from Michigan Stage? Well I went to sleep early last night and I didn't have any idea we'd be doing the same thing. I woke up in the middle of the night at an Airport. We followed some of the tour folks back to East Lansing to return the van they rented... and at 4am we picked up Tommy (Tour Manager/Legend), Tim (Monitors) and Jeff (Production Mangager) to complete the rest of the drive to Detroit. We rolled into Mo-town at 6am and checked into one...

Cassino Updateheres a quick rundown on what we've been doing.........

actually we've been writing songs. And i must say they are pretty good. We are trying to get out on the road sometime at the beginning of next year. But we cant really promise anything just yet. Yall have to understand that we are poor and we dont have a bank (record label) to jump start us. ... Speaking of DIY, our friend Billy has offered to put out a Broken Parachute single (the Northstar stuff we never officially released.... I guess it...
