Boston's The Press War was formed by frontman Anthony Rainville after his previous group, Stay, called it quits. I always thought Stay were on the verge of breaking into the mainstream, but for whatever reason it never happened. With a similar penchant for infectious pop-rock, I believe The Press War has the same potential. Head to the replies to listen to their new single, "Follow Me," which will appear on this summer's When It All Goes to Hell.

Here are the albums that are in stores today. Pick up anything good? What do you recommend? If we missed anything, please add it to our calendar. We recommend Rdio or Spotify for album streams of new releases and check out our review section to see what our staff thought of the albums.

Note: Currently the calendar system is not working. It's a known issue and has been reported to those that can fix it. Really sorry about that, we hope to have it fixed soon.

The one benefit of a sea of smartphones at shows? When Jesse Lacey from Brand New forgets the lyrics to "Millstone" he can ask people in the audience to look them up. He's fucked if he wants "Degausser" though.

Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins has joined TNA Wrestling.
“Saying I’m humbled and honored by this opportunity to be part of TNA, a world-class wrestling organization, is an understatement and a dream come true,” said Corgan. “What’s great is the entire TNA organization stands in full support of my music life with the Smashing Pumpkins. In return, I’m fully committed to using my 30 years of entertainment experience, along with my deep-rooted passion for pro wrestling, to take on the thrilling challenge of creatively contributing to IMPACT WRESTLING, finding and developing new talent, and working eye-to-eye with the best-of-the-best. For as cultures currently evolve at great speed,...

Andy Hull from Manchester Orchestra was interviewed by Extreme Nonchalance:
I think once I started realizing that it was up to me, and I couldn’t bank on anybody else to help me with my success…you know we could get a great label, and I’ve had amazing people that I work with and that have worked for me, but if I’m not the main motivation and the main thing that’s pushing myself, I realized it wasn’t really going to go anywhere. It was actually sort of a defense mechanism. At the end of the day I can still have control over everything I do. Our keyboard player Chris Freeman said to me a long time ago, right before we made our second record, and it’s stuck with me. I said, “What are we...

The This is Hardcore festival has posted a statement about the festival's lack of women. I guess the tacit acknowledgement is better than Skate and Surf's current tactic. Festival coordinator Joe McKay posted a longer "venting" message on Facebook as well.
This is Hardcore has recently been called out for not having enough women in the bands in this year’s line-up. We recognize that there is an issue with women being valued and given visibility in the hardcore music scene. The TIHC team is mostly made up of women, who work tirelessly to put on the fest every year. We spend months going through submissions of bands, trying to put together a diverse group of bands that pulls together old...

Fantastic profile in The New Yorker about one of the largest music piracy rings on the internet back in the day.
Then, in January of 2007, one of RNS’s topsites mysteriously vanished. The server, which was hosted in Hungary, began refusing all connections, and the company that owned it didn’t respond. Kali ordered the group shut down. RNS’s final leak, released on January 19, 2007, was Fall Out Boy’s “Infinity on High,” sourced from inside the plant by Glover.

Geographer is about to embark on a long North American tour in support of his critically-acclaimed new album, Ghost Modern. Since fan response for this album has been overwhelming, we have teamed up with Roll Call Records (also home to AP.net darlings Typhoon and ON AN ON) to give away a pair of tickets to each upcoming show. And there's more! Roll Call Records are also looking to bring out photographers to document each event for a special package that the label is putting together for fans. If you are photographer and would like a media pass for any of these shows, this is your chance!

Without further ado, head to the replies to see how you can enter the contest! Good luck.
