New Damage Records signed HOUNDS and will release the band's Wild Eyes EP sometime this spring. The band features Paul Ramirez from The Flatliners and Exclaim! is streaming one of their new tracks right now.
Ray Waddell, writing for Billboard, on how the dropping gas prices across the country have helped touring artists.
The cost of fuel has been dropping since June of 2014, and by Jan. 12 had reached a five-year low -- which is great news for the touring industry. Based on U.S. Dept. of Energy averages, diesel fuel was running around $3.91 per gallon a year ago, and is currently about $3.13 on a national average. At that rate, an arena tour with 10 trucks and four buses averaging five miles per gallon is saving as much as $22,000 over 30 tour dates and 10,000 miles. Extrapolate that into the summer months, when more than 1,000 buses and 10 times that many touring trucks are on the road,...
You can watch Fall Out Boy's awesome performance of "Centuries" from last night's The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallonhere. You can also find a web exclusive video in the replies with the band discussing how they wrote the hit. The guys' new album, American Beauty/American Psycho is out now.
Head to AltPress to watch part one of a three-part roundtable with Spencer Chamberlain (Sleepwave, ex-Underoath), Jonny Craig (Slaves) and Dave Stephens (We Came As Romans) discussing “The State Of The Scene.”
Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Revolutionary, simple and plain. He did not get to live a regular life and have an 86th Bornday. He died a murder victim because he had the audacity to challenge a war machine bent on keeping people impoverished and men and woman dying for an illegal war. Martin was more than a speech-giving, marching, de-segregationist. He was a human being that dared to call out the hypocrisy of asking young people to refrain from violent protest on the one hand, while on the other allowing them to be cogs in a war machine that was making Vietnam a hell on earth for natives of that...
A source close to Team Adele told MBW: “The album will be released when it’s ready – [we] hope that will be at some stage in 2015. That’s all I can tell you right now.” Another US source told us that “logically, there is now almost no chance” of the LP being ready for release before the second half of 2015.
I recently spoke at length with Ryan Neff of Miss May I, who are set to hop on tour with August Burns Red on the Frozen Flame U.S. Tour, which runs from January 22nd until March 8th. In addition to talking about the tour, we also talked about their time at Knotfest, radio crowds vs Warped Tour crowds, the U.S. Military, and a lot more. You can read the interview here.
I think you get more of an opportunity to get love from a crowd quickly in the Warped Tour side of things. I think it’s a younger group that are a lot more excited to latch onto new music, they’re coming to that show ready to pick up t-shirts from their favorite new band, ready to have somebody win them over at every...
In case you haven't heard - You, Me, And Everyone We Know are back and have signed to new Nashville independent label South By Sea Music. They will release an EP called Dogged on March 17th. We are premiering a new song off of it - "I'd Rather Be Sleeping." It's one of the best pop-punk songs released so far this year, which shouldn't come as much of a surprise. Check it out in the replies to see what I mean. The band will also be supporting Have Mercy on tour with Weatherbox and Head North - dates for that are below, as well.
