The Guardian profiles No Devotion and the struggle to move on from Lostprophets' infamy.
"A day before the charges went public, we heard he'd been arrested and immediately we knew the band was over," Richardson says. "The next morning, we started reading tweets about what he tried to do. And we couldn't believe it." Every member except Watkins has children – Richardson's young daughter knew the singer as Uncle Ian – which, they say, made the betrayal worse. Both he and Gaze say they'll never listen to the music again. "I can't," Gaze says. "It's tainted, because he was the voice of the band, and it was his lyrics."

Happy Friday! It sure is Friday. The weekend is here at last. I know you’ve worked 40 hours this week, but I need you to work 15 more minutes right now. We are about to create, together, the darkest, most intriguing corner of AbsolutePunk.net (darker than the PL forum and more intriguing than the Brand New thread circa 2009). Today is the day that I proudly/shamefully introduce you to a new semi-regular feature titled Phaynes Eats Phood. If you’re a forum regular, you may know phaynes1 for being a curmudgeonly old man-type poster (he is only 25 though). I used to live with Phaynes, and while being his roommate, one of the things I was most shocked to discover was his abnormal eating...

Wired looks at why songs on the radio are all around the same length:
What about now? Since 1990, it seems that the average song length has sort of stabilized around 250 seconds (over 4 minutes). Maybe that’s because humans prefer 4 minute songs. Clearly there is no technological limit to song length anymore, right?

Radio.com is reporting Tim Lambesis is going back court to try and get his sentence reduced a year, claiming a "custody-credit" for the year he spent under house arrest.
“There will be a hearing on July 18th to determine if the time Lambesis spent on house arrest will count as credits towards his prison term,” prosecutor Claudia Grasso stated in an email.

The Gaslight Anthem's Alex Levine and Ben Horowitz sat down with Blare Magazine to talk about their new album.
You need to reinvent yourself, you don’t need to reinvent the whole fucking thing. I mean even with the teaser, we’re just fucking with people. Andy Diamond and I are just running down the street and he’s spitting beer out of his mouth, like we were just having some fun with that one. But that was part of the reason… like we would rather people be like, “What the fuck is this?” than say, “Oh another Gaslight album, ho hum”.

I’m not promising a championship. I know how hard that is to deliver. We’re not ready right now. No way. Of course, I want to win next year, but I’m realistic. It will be a long process, much longer than it was in 2010. My patience will get tested. I know that. I’m going into a situation with a young team and a new coach. I will be the old head. But I get a thrill out of bringing a group together and helping them reach a place they didn’t know they could go. I see myself as a mentor now and I’m excited to lead some of these talented young guys. I think I can help...

Brand New have posted up some of their new tour merch online.
Just taking a minute to thank everyone for all the fun at the shows recently. As Chris Conley would say, we feel powerfully psyched. It's a beautiful day today, and we are really looking forward to tonight and the remainder of the shows on the East coast.
We've put some new t-shirt set designs up in the store. One design of each set will be available exclusively at live events, so if you happen to be at a show, pick one up.

Brendan Kelly's penned a new blog about the "sexting" case currently taking place in Manassas, VA.
I don’t really think that I’m out of line when I say that a bunch of grown men pulling a kid into a room and injecting him with a drug that will cause him to get a boner and then taking pictures of said boner is a fucked up, terrible thing. Yet that’s exactly what seems to be on the verge of happening in Manassas, VA as retribution for a 17 year old guy texting a picture of his boner to his 15 year old then-girlfriend during a sexy text exchange. The girl seems to have texted pictures of herself to the boy as well, but it was the girl’s mom who found the boner on her daughter’s phone and...

In a new interview with Kerrang, Deryck Whibley (Sum 41) talks about how Iggy Pop and Tommy Lee have been helping him with advice in regard to his sobriety.
"Now I'm sober, I don't get calls from certain people that I used to… the drinking friends," Whibley said. "Now I'm the bum-out to them. Who wants to invite the sober guy to the party? Y'know who has been incredibly supportive? Iggy Pop. He had a lot of great advice; he's been through it all. We've been friends for years."

The Times of London are reporting that members of Arctic Monkeys have been named as among more than 1,600 people who tried to shelter £1.2 billion through one of Britain's most aggressive tax avoidance schemes. Billboard has a good rundown of the story, as the original is behind a paywall.
However, under new Treasury rules due to be brought in this month, Liberty members may have to pay back hundreds of millions of pounds in disputed tax before any hearing takes takes place. The Times states that Gary Barlow, who reportedly invested over £4 million ($6.8 million) in the Liberty scheme, is among those who can expect to receive a large tax bill in the coming weeks.
