In reviewing Forever Came Calling's debut LP Contender in 2012, I wrote that the California-based pop-punk act wrote the best straightforward album in the genre that year. With so many pop-punk acts making sure to not bend the rules of the genre, you have to be particularly good to stand out if you go that route, and Forever Came Calling did it well. That description is still applicable in regards to the band's new album, What Matters Most (which you can stream in the replies), but the group has learned on LP2 that they don't have to shy away from their greatest strength: Delivering catchy-as-hell pop hooks. These aren't really hooks for the sake of hooks, either; What Matters Most ebbs...

USA Today is reporting that Lorde's "Royals" has been pulled from rotation in San Francisco for the duration of the World Series.
Even though Lorde sings, “We’ll never be royals….” in the chorus of her hit Royals song, two San Francisco radio stations have banned the song from their airwaves – at least while their town’s beloved San Francisco Giants are taking on the Kansas City Royals in the World Series.

So far there are a big fat zero platinum albums issued this year. Taylor Swift -- you are our only hope.
Yet the year is not a complete wash, as 60 individual songs have been certified as platinum, and this is a clear reflection of the overall shift that the industry has made back to a singles-based focus. Thanks to digital downloads, buyers are no longer required to purchase an entire album, but when compared to last year, the number of platinum-certified singles is still down more than 20%.

Kris Sheehan, Jye Menzies & Tyler March have left Capture the Crown.
This band started touring in late 2012. Since the beginning not a single member has made a single cent. From day one, the band has been in copious amounts of debt. Factors contributing to the debt: the big one is relocating from Australia to the United States. Moving a touring band across the world is a very serious undertaking and a lot of money is used in the process, think of it as a start up investment. Along with relocating, unfortunate luck with reoccurring vehicle issues on top of numerous other factors have not put us into a great place financially. With that said, not being paid or seeing any financial gains...

Butch Walker's new song "Afraid of Ghosts" is stream in in the replies and on Esquire, where they have an interview with Butch.
I felt like a musical sponge growing up. Something would appeal to me and I would embrace it full-force. I think I'm a complete addict at heart. That's the reason I can't do drugs or anything like that because I go too hard with it, whatever I do. Musically I think it was the same thing. I couldn't just be bothered with one style or one kind of music or one instrument. No one scene, I guess you could say. There's too much good stuff out there to be inspired by.

Wounds are releasing their debut album, Die Young, on November 24th via Razor & Tie Records. During the recording of the album, one of it's members fell from a 4-story balcony in Dublin. Doctors told him he would never pick up a guitar again, but he recovered and completed the album many months later with the band. The result is an equally dark and heavy album in vein of Bring Me The Horizon. We are premiering a sampler of four new songs from it - give them a listen in the replies. If you like what you hear, you can pre-order the album tomorrow and get these four songs instantly.
