My favorite song to play right now is my new single called "Say It Again." My boyfriend lives in Scotland, so the song is about how hard it can be to be in a long distance relationship, but itíll be worth it eventually when we wonít have to wait months to see each other anymore.

Hey everyone, last tuesday the transmission in our van went and we have been stuck in Chicago ever since. Today marks day 6 that we have been stranded here. We've missed the last 4 shows on the tour we are currently on. Things are a little rough right now but we will figure it out, we always do! if any of you guys would like to help, the best way for you to do that would be to pick up a shirt from our online store! here is the link. Pick up some Lions Lions merch because although the windy city is quite beautiful, we really would like to continue playing music...
Actor, writer, and director Harold Ramis has died at the age of 69. His credits include legendary comedies such as Ghostbusters, Caddyshack, Stripes, Groundhog Day, and more. One of the most influential and brilliant comics to ever live, he'll surely be missed. Don't cross the streams.
The Horrors will release their new alum Luminous on May 5th via XL Recordings. A new track titled "I See You" will be premiered on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show tonight but in the meantime you can check out the artwork in the replies.
Update: You can now check out the official lyric video for "I See You" in the replies too.
Boston-based Somos is streaming "Domestic" from their debut LP, Temple of Plenty, at The AV Club. The band plays a sort of emo-tinged powerpop, but the musicianship has a punk backbone and it's catchy as all hell. Their first single, "Dead Wrong," reminded some users of Name Taken. So listen to that song if that sounds like something you'd enjoy, and if you like it you can preorder Temple of Plentyfrom Tiny Engines.
Anthony Green has had to cancel his European tour due to a family illness.
Itís with deepest regret that I have to cancel my upcoming European tour due to a family illness. I absolutely need to stay in the states with my loved ones during this time. Unfortunately this means neither I nor The Dear Hunter will be playing any of the shows we had scheduled. Iím so sorry to all the fans overseas. I was and still am looking forward to getting back over there to see you. Weíre already trying to reschedule all the shows for another time later this year.
Thank you for your support and understanding,
The lyrics for me were far more self help than self loathing, they were more about trying to get through the bullshit and kind of continue on and I think thatís something in life that everybody does in different ways and you cope in different ways and sometimes there are good ways and bad ways. I felt like when I was trying to come up with a title for the record, Iíd asked people what they thought of the word cope and every single person I asked would have a different meaning, I liked that idea in the lyrics that people could interpret them in different ways from each other...

Rob Ford, the Toronto mayor who has admitted to smoking crack in his office, recently attended a fundraising event for Toronto beat/electronic producers. He walked on stage to the coke-rap king Pusha-T's "Numbers On The Boards" and made a beat onstage, video of which can be found in the replies. Given the rumors that Joaquin Phoenix had produced tracks for Pusha's My Name Is My Name, I think this has to be another I'm Still Here-esque stunt.
Metal Sucks is reporting on new developments in the Tim Lambesis case, including how the undercover officer was informed of the plan to hire a hitman.
Then Lambesis started to walk away. ĎSo, as he was leaving, we got about fifteen or twenty feet away from each other and he turned back to me and he goes, "Just to clarify, just so you know, I do want her dead."
With Have Mercy and Daisyhead joining forces on a new split EP, listeners are granted the opportunity to get in on the ground floor with two bands that have a very bright future. Have Mercy's phenomenal debut, 2013's The Earth Pushed Back, is an addictive, emotive punch to the chest and producer Paul Leavitt supplies the missing X-factor into the songs on this split, while Daisyhead's emo-grunge isn't without flashes of Balance and Composure and Daylight. Both bands are relative newcomers and both should use this release - out tomorrow - as a building block for huge 2014s. Stream the four-song split in the replies, and preorder it over here.
