Angels and Airwaves, which now consists of just Tom DeLonge and Ilan Rubin, are streaming "Paralyzed" over on Rolling Stone. The new album will be titled The Dream Walker. Stream the song in the replies.
There's a song called "Tunnels" that's really interesting. It was the first song that we wrote, and I wrote the whole song up until the chorus, lyrically, about doubting religion. So, flash forward a year-and-a-half later and about two or three months ago, my dad passed away. The night that he passed away, I woke up from my sleep with an extraordinarily massive amount of energy, and I can only describe it as though someone injected me with a gallon of methamphetamines and Ecstasy with...

Today is the 20th anniversary of Pokinatcha by MxPx. They have a little tribute up on their website for it.
One of the greatest enduring legacies from Pokinatcha is our beloved iconic Pokinatcha Punk logo. The Punk, designed by John Nissen has stood with us throughout all of the past 20 years, through various adaptations and reinterpretations.

He was kind enough to come back and design this very special 20 Years of Pokinatcha logo just for the anniversary. Thank you John for 20 years of the Pokinatcha Punk!
That new Fall Out Boy song we speculated may be in the trailer for Big Hero 6? It looks like it's getting a special 7" pressing via Disney on December 9th -- at least if the listing at Bull Moose is to be believed.
According to the documents filed at Londonís Companies House, the split allots for 120 shares: 1D holds 50 percent, and the managers hold the other 50. Looking at 5SOS music sales so far, for instance -- 788,000 albums and EPs and 2.4 million song downloads sold, per Nielsen SoundScan -- that would amount to $250,000 in earnings for Modest and 1D, or $25,000 added to each 1D memberís bank account, Billboard estimates.

We didnít go into the room going, ďLetís just start with bass and drums.Ē I picked up a bass, me and Ben had a jam, and then that was it. We decided to not have a guitarist by default, really. Itís like if you started making a pizza, youíre also making the simultaneous decision to not make lasagna. You didnít choose to not make lasagna, you just chose to make pizza. You didnít make two decisions. Itís the same with us. We went with the mode where Iím going to play bass. We didnít decide to not have a guitar, I just decided to play bass.

The AbsolutePunk Podcast returns this week with the main discussion topic centered around growing up with bands and their musical progression versus growing out of bands as you get older and your tastes change. We use the upcoming release of two albums, Yellowcard and New Found Glory, as sort of the backdrop to this talk. This then leads us into talking about bands having to compete with their past albums for attention, the editorial by Talib Kweli posted earlier this week, and, of course, a brief foray into the whole stage diving thing. The episode can be streamed and/or downloaded below.

Mutemath have posted an alternative version of "In No Time" that you can stream in the replies.
Many times we record multiple versions of songs for an album to make sure we find the best framework for a song idea. Especially our favorite ones. When we turned in Odd Soul to WB, there was debate on whether or not In No Time needed a more conventional approach. And although we tried, we wound up sticking with the original, more unconventional version, which is what is on the album. But here's the unreleased alternate version, which is still a nice listen.
