The Seattle Times is reporting that a woman who had a confirmed case of measles traveled all over Western Washington while she was contagious last month. And one of those locations was a Kings Of Leon show on the 28th. You paid to see Kings Of Leon and maybe got exposed to measles? Shit ... that sucks.

Billboard sat down with the CEO of Rdio, Anthony Bay, to talk about the crowded streaming music space and what the future may hold.
The first thing I would say is that, in fact, if you take the U.S. market, Netflix Hulu and Amazon are all pretty big. So there isn't only one, there's three. And they're different. So the question I think is, over time, how do music services create a unique experience for customers? The other thing is that what you described is true in the United States, but not true anywhere else in the world. This is the only country of any scale that has statutory licensing. So in the United States you have a lot of noise, you have a lot of services which can't exist in...

Protest The Hero have parted ways with bassist Arif Mirabdolbaghi.
Arif has decided that the touring schedule we have signed up for to support Volition is more intense than what he is prepared to commit. He is actively involved with other projects at home and being a full time band member isn't a practical thing. Though he has and will be missed out on the road with his brothers, everything was left on a positive note and we are open to his involvement down the road and only time will see how it all plays out. In the meantime, our longtime friend and tourmate Cam McLellan will be filling in on bass duties for the rest of the cycle. As an amazing musician, co-writer and producer of...

Gerard Way, former frontman of My Chemical Romance, has posted a lengthy update on Twitter regarding his thoughts on interacting with his former band's fanbase. For a little more background, you can read his tweets yesterday.
As far as yesterday is concerned, the last thing I'd want anyone to feel is that I have a general perception of you all as overwhelmingly negative. That is not the case. In an effort to try and help people understand certain things, as a communicator, sometimes it is easier to deal with something when it is directly brought to you, maybe by someone that is confused. People that communicate and connect with each other have a strong desire to be understood. It was...

Rescuer will release their sophomore album, Anxiety Answering, on June 3rd via No Sleep Records. It was recorded with Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Joyce Manor). Check out a new song called "Out of Focus" on Brooklyn Vegan, featuring Andy from Frameworks and Madeline Nicholl. If you like what you hear, you can pre-order it.
“Out of Focus” is about growing apart from the people that you grew up with,” Marra adds. “My favorite thing about this song is that our friends Andy (of Frameworks) and Madeline Nicholl drove down from their wedding in Seattle and recorded some vocal parts on this song. It's like our weird wedding gift to them.”

Autopilot Off are offering free downloads of two new songs -- "Alcologic" and "When I Was Young" -- check the replies.
Here is a link to two new songs that we are releasing for free download. This has been an ambitious project for us, encompassing the past several months. We handled all aspects of production ourselves, working on weekends and whenever our collective personal schedules would permit. It has taken a long time to generate anything finished, but it has been worth it to us to do our songs our way. We hope you enjoy them, and hope that we can complete more in the future. -Chris J, Chris H, Rob, and Phil
