You can check out our new interview with Stray From The Path here. The band will be heading out on a headliner with Counterparts, Expire, and My Ticket Home - dates can be found here. In the interview, we talk about Warped Tour, their partnership with Cop Block, social media, and an upcoming fourth album.
Yeah, we flipped our van and we waited on the side of the road in -10 degree weather and the cop finally shows up two hours later and he writes me a ticket because and I quote "If you flipped your van, you must've been speeding." So the guy wasn't even there, and he gave me a $400 ticket on the assumption of something. They just generate revenue, they're not even trying to protect...

Back in 2011/2012, Lorde featured on Characters, an album by her friends under the name And They Were Masked. She still went by her birth name at the time, and she seems to only have appeared on the tracks "Sands of John" and "Piece of Mind." The band claims to have been influenced by Fugazi, Massive Attack, At The Drive-In, The Mars Volta, PJ Harvey, and more. Check it out in the replies.

Brace for impact! We've got the guys in A Day to Remember coming by tomorrow to chat on the website. Tomorrow, August 8th, at 1pm EST the band will be chatting in a thread here on the homepage. So, come stop by and talk about the band's Parks & Devastation tour, their Self-Help Fest, and other plans for the rest of the year. This should be a good one.

Our interview with Bad Suns can be found here.
Weíre not so concerned about being lumped into anything because I think weíre confident in what this band is capable of doing. I donít see us being a flavor of the week type thing because we feel like we have so much to say and so much to do, as opposed to just one trendy sound or something like that. I donít feel that way about our band, but time can only tell.

It looks like a bunch of guitars once owned by the late producer Jerry Finn are for sale on eBay. This includes the guitar used to record Blink-182's Enema of the State.
Even though he loved the sound of this guitar, Tom refused to be photographed playing it because it was 'TOO PRETTY' according to Him.

In what might be my favorite piece of tour novelties ever, Drake and Lil Wayne have released a Capcom-developed app based on Street Fighter called "DvsLW" to accompany their upcoming "Drake VS. Lil Wayne Tour." The app will apparently allow the crowd at the tour to "power up" the rappers during a rap battle portion of the concert by button mashing. They're also including trading cards featuring the rappers in the tours VIP packages.

Sullivan will release Heavy is the Head on October 28th.
We discussed our options for a very long time and in the end, we wanted to be comfortable with whomever we worked with. Signing to Spartan was the obvious choice for us, since we had such a great working relationship with John Frazier going back to the Tooth & Nail days. It's a rare occasion when you can revamp your career on a brand new label, yet have the head start of a great connection with your label guy. Watching Spartan grow and then deciding to start Sullivan again was serendipitous. It was meant to be. There is no better feeling than having a team that's not only on the same page as you, but is also eager to grow just as...

In the grand tradition of Lil Wayne and Justin Bieber's snarky and confrontational depositions -- TMZ has acquired a transcript of Kanye West's deposition during the court proceedings over his assault of a paparazzi last summer. It includes Ye telling the photog's lawyer that he "represents scum," "needs a hall pass" to use the n-word, compares celebrities to pre-Civil Rights Movement black Americans, and that he's "the smartest fucking celebrity you'll ever meet. I'm not Britney Spears." No, no you are not, Kanye, and we love you for it.

Newsday is reporting that Pandora has made a direct licensing deal with some artists.
That means Merlin-represented artists like Arcade Fire, Bad Religion and Lenny Kravitz could get more rotations as their representatives will be able to lobby Pandora to place their songs earlier in playlists where they fit. Artists will also get access to Pandora data for the first time, enabling them to make informed decisions about where to tour, who to tour with, what their concert set list should be and what songs they might release next. They will also have tools to directly communicate with fans on Pandora.

Damn, wish I had seen this last night -- I could have had three The Gaslight Anthem spots at the top of the page. Noisey sat down with Brian Fallon to talk about the band's new album and how Brian just wants a normal life.
So to save himself from himself, Fallon pulled the plug on all social media and vanished for most of the past year. "I'd had enough of myself," he remembers. "I was like, 'Youíre an idiot. You just keep running your stupid mouth and you say things that you donít mean. And you say them because youíre in the moment and youíre hot about something. So you know what, self? I'm cutting you off. You need to shut up.'"
