You can read our interview with Jake Luhrs, vocalist for August Burns Red here. The band is currently in the middle of their Frozen Flame U.S. headlining tour, alongside Miss May I, Northlane, Fit For A King, and Erra.
The subject matter is sensitive. There’s a lot of stuff that we’re not going to let you know what the lyrics mean, because we want each listener to take it for what they need it for, not for what we’re giving you. But there’s a lot of sensitive stuff there, there might even be some questionable subject matter where people are like “What’s this?”

Will Salazar, of Fenix TX, recently suffered a stroke after a fall. A GoFund page has been set up for donations.
Several days ago, Will was hospitalized for observation and treatment following a concussion. After multiple tests and scans, it was discovered that he had suffered a mid-brain stroke as a result of the fall that caused the concussion. He remained in the hospital under the care of a team of specialists for about a week, and has since started his recovery. His symptoms include loss of some motor skills and equilibrium, and binocular diplopia (double vision in both eyes at range) among other things. He is home now and is very much looking forward to a full recovery through...

Anti-Flag will be releasing American Spring on May 26th. The album artwork and track listing are in the replies.
There is no shortage of fodder for a new record of commentary on the social and political climate in 2015: Endless wars, the new Jim Crow and American injustice, corprotocracy, environmental coup d’état, the surveillance state, loss, grief, and anxiety. We hope that these songs can grant us solace in a seemingly hopeless era. It has been frustrating to see much punk rock music —and music in general— quiet in the face of so many atrocities that are taking place around the world. This record is not quiet. If you are disillusioned with the status quo, these songs are for you.

Alternative Nation has a new interview with Travis Barker about Blink 182.
Alkaline Trio toured with Blink-182 for awhile as an opener band. We are two weeks in to practice and [Matt Skiba]’s killing it. There’s harmonies that have never been sung. He’s actually playing the guitar instead of just Pro Tools. It’s just fresh blood and having someone that’s motivated and stoked to be there makes a world of difference. In general, Skiba has a really charming voice and it couldn’t be a better fit.

Looking through the results of our reader poll for the year's most anticipated albums is always enlightening to me. For one, it gives a snapshot into the collective minds of all our readers that just reading comments and posts never really shows. I mean, you all love Brand New, so I guess that kinda shows. But it also shows where there's a tad difference between the readers and the albums that appeared on our staff anticipated list. It shows that while there's a group of commenters that seem to strongly dislike Kanye West, he makes the list above All Time Low, Motion City Soundtrack, and Thrice. All of the names up at the top are well traveled and known quantities, but there are some...

We are excited to announce that A Will Away are releasing a new EP called Bliss on March 20th via Quiet Fire Media. The EP was produced by Gary Cioffi (Transit, Misser). We are premiering a new song off of it called "Cheap Wine," which you can hear below. The steady and somber guitars give the vocals a greater clarity, but the bass keeps your ears tuned in early on as it contrasts with the guitars and vocals. Rather than heavily focusing on a chorus or hook, "Cheap Wine" lets each instrument resonate. Those of you who miss The Dangerous Summer or enjoy The American Scene's Safe For Now should like this one. If you like what you hear, you can pre-order the EP. New tour dates are also...

Viet Cong have had their upcoming show at Oberlin cancelled. The promoter responsible for the cancellation has issued a statement citing the nature of the bands name, which is lifted from a Vietnamese organization that tortured and ran prison camps in the Vietnamese War. The band has previously responded to such compaints, saying in part that "Vietnamese immigrants—the Vietnamese Canadians and Vietnamese Americans—will write us an email saying that their family was tortured by the Viet Cong for five years in a prison camp. ... It's just a band name. It's just what we called ourselves." You can read the promoter's full statement in the replies.

The Republic of Wolves are writing for a new record they hope to record this year.
We’re re-releasing our first EP (“His Old Branches”) on vinyl some time in the next month or two, and we’ll be doing a couple of special shows to celebrate that. We’re also writing for a new album that we’ll hopefully be able to start recording very soon, and we’ve got a week-long slot on this year’s Warped Tour that we’re very excited about!

Today we invite you to meet Long Knives, a four-piece emo act from the Bay Area of California. When I say this is a new band, I really mean that in every way -- in the replies we're streaming the first single from their debut EP. The EP, titled This is Your Life, is set to drop via Count Your Lucky Stars on April 7. The track in the replies, "Bones," identifies what this group is good at pretty quickly: They play simple, catchy, melodic indie-punk with more than enough emo tinge to go around, characterized strongly by trade-offs between vocalists Matt Bartels and Kris Moya. The male/female call-and-return vocals make This is Your Life addicting from first listen. If you like "Bones,"...

Mariage Blanc recently premiered their superb track "We've Got Time" at Under The Gun from their forthcoming album No Autobiography which is released on April 7th. This intricate slice of perfect indie-pop is a must for fans of Real Estate, Pinback or Elliott Smith and make sure you come and find out more about them in their official thread. This follows the recent premiere of "Blue Eyes", from the same album, over at The Huffington Post.

The Japanese House is a brand new artist who debuted the track "Still" from the forthcoming Pools To Bathe In EP which is released on April 27th via Dirty Hit. And not only do they all share the same label, but if you're a fan of the haunting EP style tracks of The 1975 or my recent recommendation of Marika Hackman's debut album...you should check this out in the replies. Not only that, but it was produced by Matty Healy and George Daniels of The 1975.

Luke Winkie, writing for BuzzFeed, on how Fueled by Ramen has remained relevant for over 20 years.
“We wanted to make sure there weren’t any ceilings for our artists, while also keeping our culture independent,” said Janick. “There were other major labels filling artists’ heads with stuff like, ‘Oh you’re being held back by Fueled by Ramen, they don’t have the resources.’ For me it was about being an indie label with major ties, where we can build the foundation with a big company there to take you all the way.”
