Hawk & Son will be releasing their full-length, ATK, on November 18 via Save You Generation Records. We're excited to bring you an exclusive stream of the seven-track album's closing title track - hit the replies if you're a fan of Tokyo Police Club or Silversun Pickups.

Time's forthcoming cover story on U2 talks a little about the idea of a new music format that "will tempt" users into buying music again. Marco Arment's blog echos my pessimistic belief that this ship has probably already sailed.
Full albums are as interesting to most people today as magazines. Single songs and single articles killed their respective larger containers. This is true on both the supply and demand sides: most people don’t listen to full albums, and most bands don’t produce very good ones. People only care about hit singles.

Rolling Stone believes 1984 was the greatest year in pop music history.
In the spirit of this landmark year, here are the 100 best singles from the year pop popped. To be considered, the song had to be released in 1984 or have significant chart impact in 1984, and charted somewhere on the Billboard Hot 100.

Check out another interview with Laura Jane Grace over on MTV. There is such thing as too much Against Me! news.
“It was really reassuring just hearing how varied everyone’s end-definition of what gender means to them is,” Grace told MTV News. “Reassuring in my own way in still trying to figure that out. Having other people say it who are further along in their transition or further along in life — [who] just have more experience — hearing them be like, ‘Well, I don’t really know, I’m still kind of figuring it out,’ was like, ‘OK, you know, I’m in a good place.’”
Jason Tate on Sep 18, 2014 - 11:08 AM
Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! recently sat down for a video interview with Marc Lamont Hill for The Huffington Post.
"I started playing in a band when I was 19 years old and started touring heavily, and that swept up a big chunk of my life and it was really easy for me to compartmentalize certain parts of myself and not think about certain things," Grace said. "Then it all built to a boiling point where I had to address what I was going through in order to continue to survive as a person."

The new lead singer of GWAR is Vulvatron.
Meet Vulvatron, a spiky purple Amazon whose massive (prosthetic) breasts occasionally shoot geysers of blood out onto her hapless audience. Vulvatron is not dancing, or breathing fire, or keeping the slaves in line (though one assumes she’ll be adept at all three). For the first time since the departure of dancer and backing singer Slymenstra Hymen (Danielle Stampe) in 2000, GWAR has a female member, and she’s the frontwoman.

The Detroit Free Press recently interviewed The Gaslight Anthem.
"I thought it was a lot riskier to kind of make the same kind of records we did with the same formula than it was to mix it up," Horowitz said. "We don't want to be that band that attempts to write the same record over and over again just to appease whatever, like critics or fans or anything like that."

Fat Mike of NOFX did an interview with Billboard and talked about the band's future plans -- including a book.
Our drummer, who was a junkie for a long time, one of his stories is how he had a bunch of packs of heroin in his mouth, scoring, got pulled over, so he swallowed them all. The next day he drank a bunch of coffee and sh-- into his mom's colander and had to get the bags out of his sh--, rinse it out and put the colander back in the drawer -- stuff like that. We also talk about the time my lady put saline solution in my tits, 250 CC's in each one, in Jamaica, and gave me breasts. I had big tits, I was walking down the beach.

Jack White took a few minutes from his show at Fenway Park to fire shots at Foo Fighters and Rolling Stone. You can find the audio from the show in the replies.
I'm officially supposed to stop now because this is becoming a Kanye West-esque rant for Rollingstone.com. Because apparently, nowadays, you aren't allowed to speak to your own fans about anything, lest it be a rant. So forget ISIS, forget the war in the Middle East, forget any problems at home, forget gay marriage, forget everything you ever thought about everything. This not a rant. This is just me saying, hello Cleveland!"

Following the ridiculous pre-order packages that Run The Jewels put up the other day, a fan has started a Kickstarter campaign to fund the Meow The Jewels Package. El-P has stated that if the campaign reaches its goal he will be making the record, so if you want to hear RTJ2 with nothing but cat sounds, you should definitely donate a few bucks.

Women are dominating Billboard's Hot 100 this week.
It's all about women in the Billboard Hot 100's top five again, as Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass" heads up an all-female top five for a second straight week. [...] Below "Bass," Taylor Swift's former two-week No. 1 "Shake It Off" holds at No. 2 for a second week; Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" stays at No. 3 for a third week after reaching No. 2; Iggy Azalea's "Black Widow," featuring Rita Ora, rises to a new high (5-4); and Minaj's "Bang Bang," with Jessie J and Ariana Grande, backtracks to No. 5 from its No. 4 peak.
