Since The Receiving End of Sirens' debut album, Between The Heart and The Synapse turned ten yesterday, it only makes sense that the band would tease something on us.

Head to the replies to check it out and post what you think it's going to be.

Ten years ago today was a pretty special day. Arguably two of my favorite records that came from this "scene" of ours were released. Acceptance's Phantoms and The Receiving End of Sirens' Between The Heart and The Synapse were both released on April 26th, 2005. If you're having a lazy Sunday like me, throw on these records on and take a trip down memory lane. Jump to the replies to talk about both of these classic albums and share your memories with everyone.
Nate Ruess will be releasing "Ah ha" on Monday. The artwork for the single can be found here. Oh, yeah, it was done by Sam Means ... Nate's former bandmate from The Format. This is the song that turned my excitement for this album up to 11, I'm excited to hear other thoughts on it.

Matt: I think it's too soon to know. I'm about to go on an Alkaline Trio tour for a couple months. There's some time and some things that those guys need to figure out before we can start saying I'm a permanent member. But that is a hope of mine. If we're discussing recording an album, I think that seals the deal. But, we shall see, only time can tell.

This was one of those episodes where when we finished recording we both knew we had a lot of fun recording it. I think that comes across in our spirited discussion. On this week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast we talk a little about the Star Wars trailer, the acceptance of nerd culture in the mainstream, Brand New playing "Sealed to Me" live and if listening to live videos ruins the experience and creates unfair expectations about new music. We also touch on The Ataris as the lost band from a specific wave of pop-punk -- which leads into a talk about the things that could have been in the scene. We talk about The Wonder Years' new album being finished and what our expectations and...
