The Blackout are breaking up after a final UK tour.
Hey Guys, There’s no point in dancing around the subject, so we’ll cut right to the chase. We regret to announce that Wolves will be the final release by The Blackout. Unfortunately we have come to the conclusion we are unable to sustain this band anymore, and we feel the time is right to bring it to a close. This is the hardest decision we have ever had to make as a band, and although we do it with heavy hearts, we also do with our heads held high. We are all extremely proud of Wolves, and are eternallygrateful to each and every one of you who helped it get made. We said that it would not exist without your support, and we honestly mean...

While I spend as little time as possible in Dallas (I lived there 18 years, it was enough), I venture back to see my family for the holidays and this Thanksgiving break I was lucky enough to not only see my myriad of family members, but to also catch a show at fabled venue, The Door. My first club show ever was at The Door in 2003 so even though the locations have changed, the nostalgia still hits hard.

Every Time I Die and The Ghost Inside are on out a killer tour with support from the UK's Architects, Hundredth, and Backtrack. The Door is a great venue for a lot of reasons, but for a show like this, the best reason is NO BARRIER. I forgot about this detail when I was packing up my...

I'm excited to share yellowbirddd's CENTINELA with you all. It's a really special album that will fit perfectly in your winter listening rotation. It'll be released tomorrow and can currently be pre-ordered digitally and on vinyl through Bandcamp. The indie/folk singer-songwriter is recommended for fans of Bright Eyes, Kevin Devine and Elliott Smith.

Glocca Morra have decided to break up.
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...

Molly Lambert, writing for Grantland:
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.
