Due to a medical emergency Joe Trohman missed Fall Out Boy's show over the weekend.
Due to a medical emergency, and subsequently needing emergency back surgery, I will not be able to perform with the band at the Houston rodeo show tonight. Sorry to everyone coming out. If all goes well, I should make a really fast recovery. Thanks for understanding. - Joe

Frank Turner's in-ear monitors were stolen last night.
The show in Ottawa last night was a blast, thanks to everyone who came down. Sad to say, after the show I left my in-ear monitor ear pieces in the dressing room, went off to meet people and hang out, and when I came back they were gone. No one at the venue or on my crew knows where they got to. They're moulded for me, so no use to anyone else; they're far from cheap and difficult to replace; and they're pretty essential to our current technical stage set up. There's a picture of them below. I have no idea what might have happened, and I don't particularly care, I'm just desperate to get them back. If anyone has them or knows where they...

After five weeks of fun, we are both excited and sad to bring you the final chapter of Hit the Lights's "Skeleton Series." The last installment includes the band discussing their future, an acoustic performance, input from their friends in The Wonder Years, Valencia and A Loss For Words and more. If you enjoyed the videos, be sure to pick up Summer Bones when it comes out on March 24th from Pure Noise Records. The infectiously catchy return to form is the perfect soundtrack to kick off spring.

Few bands in our scene have inspired more young artists than Taking Back Sunday. 15 of those acts - including Everyone Dies In Utah, Blue of Colors, Icarus the Owl, July and more - will take part in Pacific Ride Records' A Tribute to Taking Back Sunday, due out on April 14th. Traditions took their cover of "Set Phasers to Stun" one step further by making a music video for it. In the replies is where you want to be to watch it. The Massachusetts pop punk group's adaptation of the fan favorite track maintains the dual vocals that made the original so catchy but throws in a few curve balls to make it their own.

Rene Chun, writing for Wired, looks at a group of audiophiles paying top dollar for top quality vinyl. The "hot stampers."
This is what passes for fiscal restraint in the world of high-end audio: drawing the line at three figures for mass-produced records that sold in the millions, the same dorm room relics found in milk crates at tag sales. But Port insists that his meticulously curated discs are special. Unlike many record dealers, he doesn’t peddle the usual dreck pocked with scratches and pot resin. He traffics strictly in “hot stampers,” the very best of the best.

Peter Kafka, writing at Recode, looks at how Apple and Beats may be relaunching their service later this year.
Apple executives, led by media head Eddy Cue and Beats Music founder Jimmy Iovine, have been arguing that the music business “needs to get behind a paywall,” say people who have talked to them. Apple bought Beats last year, partly to help it gain a foothold on streaming music just as iTunes sales of digital downloads had started to drop.

Purevolume have a track-by-track commentary on the new Jeff Rosenstock album, We Cool?.
This song was the last one written for the record. There was a different opening track and when I was listening to the first pass of completed demos, it didn't feel quite right. I had this opening riff kicking around for a while, and right after I saw the movie Her I was thinking about how we are raised to believe anything is possible but in truth, reality is finite. In fact, our reality is so much smaller than all the possibilities in the world. So all these huge leaps it seems people make as life goes on, maybe they're not so huge. Also that's just someone else's path. So maybe instead of freaking...
