According to the band's latest press release, Vendetta Red plan to record new music this year to release this summer.
After a premature breakup of 4 years, the band was oddly brought back to life by a cell phone prank. It seems that a collection of mystery fans set it upon themselves to book a fake gig in Seattle for the band. Some members were even living out of state at the time. After a series of confusing texts, a fury of social media interest and massive pre-sale tickets, the members eventually agreed to play. After the sold out show, there was renewed energy and an idea to record together again. The result were two earth shattering, bowel cracking concept EPs entitled "Scripture"...

Motion City Soundtrack are playing the House of Blues in Dallas this Sunday (2/8), and before the show they're doing a cool fan event at the local brewery, Deep Ellum Brewery. Matt and Jesse will be at the brewery from 1pm to 3pm and if you're 21 and over you can meet up with them and maybe have a few beers. If you live in Dallas and want to go to the show (and don't have tickets yet), I've got a pair to give away. Let me know your favorite beer and what MCS song it goes best with in the replies and I'll pick a winner.

Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem talked with Purevolume.
And I know that people noticed on the last record (2012's Handwritten). I didn't notice this, but I said "radio" a ton of times in all our records, and I was like, "Whoa! And this is a true story we went onstage one night in Germany, and there were a couple of fans there that have come to a lot of shows, and they're really cool people. But they actually had number cards, and every time that I said "radio" in the set, they would hold up a number. And I think I got up to about 12, and I was like, "Oh, my God! Wow, man you need to read a book, dude! I never realized that I used words so often, you know? So now I'm reading anything...

The AbsolutePunk Podcast returns this week with a look at all of the follow-up from last week's Blink-182 extravaganza. From there we dive into other topics like: How do we feel about combining two records to make one record? Can you swap out a song in a tracklisting to make the album better? We discuss Cartel's upcoming 10-year tour and vinyl pressing for Chroma and reminisce about the "band in the bubble." We also look at the one band we missed when we were talking about lasting legacies from this scene: Paramore. And then we close on talking a little about The Wonder Years' 10-year shows and how that band does not feel like they've been around that long. The episode can be streamed...

Philadelphia, PA, hardcore bands Disinterest and Skin Graft will be releasing a split on Inorganic Records. Disinterest plays noisy, effect-laden hardcore, and Skin Graft focuses on a drum and bass hardcore sound, de-emphasizing guitars. Today we're not just bringing you a song from the split, we're bringing you one song by each band. Hit the replies to check out each band's effort - Disinterest has "Identity Will Ruin You," while Skin Graft's song is titled "Devalue." If you enjoy Disinterest's track, they'll be playing their side of the split in full as part of a live session on Drexel's radio station, WKDU, on the seventeenth at 11PM. You can preorder the split at Organic Records'...

Motion City Soundtrack is currently in the middle of its Commit This To Memory 10-year tour, and I was lucky enough to catch last week's show in New York City. In the replies you can read my review of the show, as well as some thoughts on how valuable it is to be able to view these old albums in a new light. Feel free to discuss the band's performance if you've already been to the tour as well!

I always enjoy making the first post on AP.net about a band -- it's just something about introducing a bulk of the community to something new. Whether you've heard the name Makeshift Shelters before or not, we're happy to acquaint you with the Washington, D.C.-based act's new full-length album, Something So Personal, in the form of the LP's lead track, "Opposite Directions." You can find the song streaming in the replies. Ella Boissonnault's vocals are what sticks out on first listen, but I keep coming back to the track because it vaguely reminds me of an intrinsic quality I believe Makeshift Shelters share with Motion City Soundtrack -- I hate to throw out the word "quirkiness," but I...

Bleed American is releasing its debut full-length record, Figure It Out, on Valentine's Day and today we're streaming one of the songs from that album. "Movie Theatre Theft" is one of my favourites because it showcases how good these guys are at writing hooks and has been stuck in my head for the last few months. If you don't mind that this Winnipeg based named themselves after a Jimmy Eat World record you should listen to it in the replies and let us know what you think. This is honestly the first pop-rock record that's really caught my attention since Brighter Brightest released Right For Me in 2011. Pre-orders are available right now via iTunes.

A lot of you have been asking us for an update on when to expect new music from fun. As you know, we like to give you guys news and updates when they are ready, but there has been a lot of recent chatter and we hear you and wanted to speak to you directly to explain a few things.

first and foremost to answer the question that has been raised most often: fun is not breaking up.
fun was founded by the 3 of us at a time when we were coming out of our own bands. one thing that has always been so special about fun is that we exist as 3 individuals in music who come together to do something collaborative. we make fun records when...
