It's that time of year again. Now that every's loaded up on food, it's time to spend some money and grab all those albums, electronics and clothing you've been putting off this year. Post any Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals in this thread and we'll keep the first post updated so you don't miss out on anything.
After a long time of consideration, we wanted to let you know that anything new from K Será does not seem likely in the near future. We want to thank all of you for the giving us the chance to pursue our passion and create memories that will last as long as we live.

Until we meet again friends, good luck & take care.
hello everyone and happy holidays. it's a stressful time for all of us, as a country and as humans. in light of America's most recent case of our failing justice system I feel that now would be as good a time as any to tell you that we are ending glocca morra.
my first draft of this post became too autobiographical and contrived. I wanted to talk about our history but it started to become a history lesson that even I got bored of writing.
this band was very important to me and definitely dictated my formative years. we haven't really done anything in the past two years save for two short tours with Owls and Joyce Manor. we just kind of stopped. but...
Today, I'm proud to bring you the next AbsolutePlaylist member submission! Vance Mook (Aaron) hails from Erie and brings us a great batch of songs today: "The collection is mostly comprised of softer indie (or, in some cases, emo) music both old and new, with most instrumentation truly reflecting the 'introspective / nighttime' vibe." Check out the playlist in Rdio and Spotify renditions in the replies. To submit your own playlist, check out our submission thread!

Happy almost Thanksgiving everyone. Since we'll all be munching on turkey and mashed potatoes for the next few days, we wanted to get our AbsolutePunk Podcast episode up a little early this week. Maybe give you something to listen to on your travels or to drown out the family bickering? Whenever you choose to give it a spin, we've got a good one for you this week. This week's topics include: Talking about Fall Out Boy's new song and album, their release plans, and all that. Then we move into a discussion about Copeland's new album and finish up talking about what we're thankful for this year ... music moment wise. We want to wish everyone a great and happy Thanksgiving, thank you for...
In many ways, Eminem’s relevance feels to me like a nostalgia act. For some, perhaps, it’s a longing for a time when a rapper could describe a fantasy of murdering his wife and call it art. My own nostalgia for Eminem is indivisible from my nostalgia for being a teenager, when I heard his music everywhere. I imagine this is true for a lot of people.
Tonight is Anberlin's final show. Figured it would make sense to open up a thread to share your favorite Anberlin memories, say what you're thankful for, and just share one last time the greatness that was this band. We'll miss you guys, thanks for everything.
Mae's Destination: B-Sides is coming to vinyl on January 27th. You can pre-order it now from Spartan Records.

Pomplamoose just finished a 28-day tour. We played 24 shows in 23 cities around the United States. It was awesome: Nataly crowd surfed for the first time ever, we sold just under $100,000 in tickets, and we got to rock out with people we love for a full month. We sold 1129 tickets in San Francisco at the Fillmore. I’ll remember that night for the rest of my life.
One question that our fans repeatedly asked us was “what does it feel like to have ‘made it’ as a band?” Though it’s a fair question to ask of a band with a hundred million views on YouTube, the thought of Pomplamoose having “made it” is, to me, ridiculous.
i remember hearing this daft punk “human after all” remix and later a rage against the machine one (killing in the name of, you should check this if you can- so good)…. i knew nothing of the creator at the time- sebastiAn- a french dj/producer on ed banger records… his music made me think and feel different like the way punk rock did when i first heard it. we began a correspondence through email…. my friend brian hiatt tweeted “the problem with modern rock is it isnt modern”- something i and we had been feeling in general. rock should not be relegated to a quaint little corner of guitar center for dads to find. in reaching...
Another unjust outcome from an unjust system. Jim Crowe didn’t die in the 1960’s, it just took on a new form. And the lessons that America should have learned from the Rodney King incident went right over the country’s head. In the many years of struggle against racism in the U.S., there is still much work to be done. The U.S. legal system is a microcosm of a wider society that discriminates against people who are not white, a society that is drowning in an epidemic of police violence against people of color. In incident after incident, excessive force and murder by American police is used as an on the...
