Today we're introducing you to Tea & Water, the solo project from Fireworks frontman Dave Mackinder. The act has a brand-spanking-new digital EP that you can "pre-order" on Bandcamp -- it's a digital download that comes with a cool hand-made download card. In the replies, we're streaming the first song from the release, titled "Change Your Mind," and you can also check out a very short Q&A with Dave that provides a bit more background behind the new project. The EP was recorded with Citizen's Mat Kerekes and you should check it out if you enjoy the poppier parts of Fireworks.

Rocky Loves Emily have left Tooth and Nail Records and have released the new song "Hypocrite." It's in the replies.
Some of you may already know through word of mouth, but we wanted to officially announce we are no longer on Tooth and Nail Records. Our first single "Hypocrite" and our upcoming record "Miserable Love" are going to be entirely independent. We all grew up listening to Tooth and Nail artists and it was a dream come true when we signed, however with a lot of life's journeys, what you want isn't always what you need (and things aren't always what they seem.) We had some really cool opportunities and experiences because of the label. For example, buying our own record at a...

Techcrunch is reporting that Apple plans to shut down Beats Music.
Many engineers from Beats Music have already been moved off the product and onto other projects at Apple, including iTunes. It’s not clear when exactly Jimmy Iovine and Dr Dre’s music service will be shut down or what Apple will do with streaming, but every source with knowledge of the situation that we talked to agreed Apple plans to sunset the Beats Music brand.

Update: Some more reporting from Re/Code calls into question the Techcrunch story.
Tom Neumayr says the TechCrunch story is “not true”, but wouldn’t elaborate. I can elaborate a bit more, based on conversations with people familiar with Apple’s thinking:...

Harrison Hudson is disbanding.
Family, friends and fans, We have decided that it is time to hang up our instruments and bring Harrison Hudson to an end. We want to thank so much our families and friends that supported our endeavors. We've so enjoyed creating music and sharing it with the world. Thanks to everyone from promoters to the fans that attended our shows.

State Lines are taking an indefinite break.
probably a good time to address some information, as you probably couldve guessed/ or alot of you have just known from talking to us, the band is now inactive, we say inactive because when bands break up i think sometimes things tend to get corny and no band ever really officially seems to break up break up, to stop this from happening to us, we're just basically saying were inactive, incase the day shows up where we do get together to play a show. that being said i can pretty much guarantee that wont happen anytime soon. theres honestly no drama, we've been playing music together for the last 4 years, we started as teenagers and now were...

Thom Yorke sure seems like he's teasing something music related. The Verge speculates it may be for Atoms for Peace.
f course, Radiohead's fanbase has since sprung into action theorizing what, if anything, Yorke is trying to convey with the image. Because of the fact that Radiohead reportedly has just started making its new album, this probably isn't a tease that the album is being pressed quite yet. It's possible that the record could contain some new music from Yorke's second band Atoms for Peace — in the background of the image, you can see artwork in the same style of the group's 2013 release Amok.

It's also offering a box set of all 27 shows, which will ship in December. All sales will be conducted through the LiveMetallica website.

Guided By Voices have broken-up.
Guided By Voices has come to an end. With 4 years of great shows and six killer albums, it was a hell of a comeback run. The remaining shows in the next two months are unfortunately canceled. Our sincere apologies to those that have purchased tickets and made travel plans.

Marvel have posted up a look at Gerard Way's upcoming run writing for Spider-Man.
Way elaborates: “In a futurist city fairly different from the New York we are familiar with, our version of Spider-Man takes the shape of a government project: SP//dr. SP//dr is comprised of three vital components: a pilot, a machine, and a radioactive sentient spider acting as one half of the brain that makes it all work. Peni Parker is a young girl, who, left parentless, is adopted by her Aunt May and Uncle Ben, the two heads of the SP//dr project. When they realize Peni is the only one who can successfully pair with SP//dr, they make the unorthodox decision to train her as SP//dr's newest pilot.”

Head to AltPress to hear a new Yellowcard song called "Crash The Gates" and read an interview with Ryan Key.
[Neal Avron] was a big part of why this thing turned out the way it did. At the beginning, he was like, “I think you guys are ready to step out of the box a little more. You never have before.” I think in the end, there were probably more raging rock guitars on it than he would have liked, but he helped us find a good medium. He never just lets you do things, even though we’ve made so many records with him over the years. He doesn’t just press “record” and let it go. He’s deeply invested in what we do, and that’s why we keep going back to him. It feels really good when he tells...

Noah Gundersen will be selling a new EP on his upcoming tour.
While we were in the studio this August working on the new record, Noah took a day and sat down guitar in hand and played 4 new songs plus 1 cover completely live and straight to analog tape. In our excitement to share them with you, we’ll be exclusively selling them as an EP entitled “Twenty-Something” at every show on the upcoming fall tour until the final date at The Moore theater in Seattle. It’s a beautiful collection of new music to tide everyone over until the new record is available sometime next year. Cover art is below and be sure to check out all the tour dates at the website link below. We can’t wait to see you...

It looks like a fight broke out between Citizen and security in San Diego.
We're sorry San Diego. Violence is never the answer when the job is to keep people secure. (Grown men, keep your hands off of young kids.) There is a right and a wrong way to handle everything. When push came to shove, the kids and venue showed their sensibility.. The offending security was dealt with accordingly. No violence. No compromise. You chose the right- Thanks for everything. xo
