Murder by Death have launched a Kickstarter.
By overwhelming demand, you guys convinced us that this is a much more interesting and effective way to pre-sell an album. We brought back a few things from the last Kickstarter and also created a bunch of new stuff we thought you'd like. There were moments of beauty that happened with the release of our last record- generous backers- friends making extraordinary gestures, and overwhelmingly positive reactions from everyone involved. Let's see what happens this time!

Search and Destroy is an important part of our growth plan so we are really pleased to have this new agreement in place with Spinefarm," Raw Power Management founder and CEO Craig Jennings said in a statement. "Their enthusiasm for what we are trying to achieve with the label made them the obvious choice for a global partnership and their company philosophy is a great fit with our own."

Aloe Blacc, writing for Wired:
First, unlike most people in creative industries, songwriters seem to have less control over our work than ever before. Knock off a handbag design from a high-end fashion house or use a sports team’s logo in your new t-shirt line, and expect a lawsuit in short order. And good luck copying a big tech company’s patented innovation. You need express permission from the original creators to use or copy their work before you resell it. That’s how they protect the value of their work.

But the world doesn’t work that way for songwriters.

Chris Dalley has left Ten Foot Pole.
So after 10 years, I’ve decided to resign as the drummer of Ten Foot Pole. I had a blast and want to thank Dennis Jagard for giving me the opportunity to rock for everyone. Also want to give thanks to Keith Divel, Chris Del Rio, Dan Kelly, and Scott Hallquist for being such a pleasure to jam with. It was time for me to give more attention to my other endeavors, and I wish TFP nothing but continued success in the future

Buddy Nielsen of Senses Fail opens up about sexuality, identity, and addiction on the latest episode of the 100 Words or Less Podcast.
For over 9 years I suffered in a cycle of shame over my sexuality, substance abuse, sexual addiction, anxiety, depression, grief and self loathing. I fell into a pit of despair and did a lot of damage to myself and to people around me. Through most of it I kept a pretty clean and convincing sheet over the messiness of my life, which in turn caused even more pain. I did a lot of things that were very dangerous and put myself into situations where I was putting myself and others at risk Over the coarse of the last year I have been able to find a level of...

The AV Club has a nice write-up about this past weekend's Fest, which can be read here.
What makes Fest so different from other punk-affiliated festivals such as Riot Fest or Pouzza Fest is that it serves as a barometer of where the punk scene is while remaining impervious to outside trends. Instead of trying to keep pace with the outside world, Fest has its own focus, giving the bands that play a stamp of approval they can’t get anywhere else.

In 2013, a group of researchers published a paper called Collective Motion of Moshers at Heavy Metal Concerts.
Human collective behavior can vary from calm to panicked depending on social context. Using videos publicly available online, we study the highly energized collective motion of attendees at heavy metal concerts. We find these extreme social gatherings generate similarly extreme behaviors: a disordered gas-like state called a mosh pit and an ordered vortex-like state called a circle pit. Both phenomena are reproduced in flocking simulations demonstrating that human collective behavior is consistent with the predictions of simplified models.

Anti-Flag's Chris Barker, aka Chris #2, has released a new cover of Pete Seeger's "What Did You Learn In School Today?."
We were asked to play Seeger Fest this year celebrating Pete Seeger's life,” explains Chris #2. “In that process going over Pete's incredible collection of songs I stumbled over “What Did You Learn In School Today.” It immediately struck me. I just wanted to do a song that demonstrates why the medium of folk music can be so powerful. That melody lodges itself in your brain, yet the lyrics are tremendously visceral and poignant."
