This week on the Self Promotion Forum, I found the wonderful Microwave. Microwave are a melodic post-hardcore band from Georgia who have just released their third EP, When The Fever Breaks, as 'name your price' through their Bandcamp. If you like Taking Back Sunday or the idea of Jimmy Eat World with a bit more edge, Microwave are the band for you. Interested in being a part of the Self-Promotion Spotlight?

Podcasting is easy when you get to talk shop with one of your all-time favorite musicians. And on the 17th episode of the AbsolutePunk.net Podcast, Jason and I got to do just that when we sat down with Jim Adkins of Jimmy Eat World. We talk about the band’s recent tour, recording and releasing Damage (the band's latest album), and the mindset behind why the band tries to write for themselves — not critics.

You can subscribe to this podcast in a variety of ways: via iTunes, your own RSS feed (instructions below), or streaming/downloading the mp3 in the replies. You can also find our previous episodes on iTunes and SoundCloud. As always, we hope you enjoy.

Reeling from the emotional train ride of Breaking Bad? Come hang out in the AP.net Turntable.fm room and spin some jams for solace.

Update: The room has closed.

This week on the Self Promotion Spotlight, I encountered Barricades, a pop-rock five piece from Boston. Their new album, With Perfect Aim is a clean-cut, catchy journey into pop-rock with hints of Jimmy Eat World, Futures, Fall Out Boy and Minus The Bear. Stream the record on their Bandcamp and get your sugary fix. Interested in being a part of the Self-Promotion Spotlight?

It's been the album everyone's been listening to and discussing all week - now you can get a little inside info on the writing and recording of Balance and Composure's new album, The Things We Think We're Missing, by listening to the sixteenth episode of the AbsolutePunk.net Podcast. Jason and I talked with Jon Simmons, Erik Peterson, and Bailey Van Ellis about the themes of the record, what it was like recording with Will Yip, and more.

All praise. Riot Fest finally kicks off in Chicago today at 4pm local time, and AP.net will be on site providing coverage each day. Refresh yourself on today's lineup/set times and check out the highly anticipated "food lineup" in the replies (they ripped off the Coachella lineup flier – it's pretty funny). Also, feel free to use this thread as an open discussion for all things Riot Fest today and keep up with our Riot coverage all weekend.

You can check out our interview with Dustin Kensrue here. Kensrue is currently working as a Worship Pastor over at Mars Hill Bellevue in Washington, and will be releasing his first solo Worship album The Water & The Blood on October 1st on Mars Hill Music.
I will definitely do more of a follow up to Please Come Home, I've been saying it for years, but I just haven't had a fair amount of material for it, so I threw it on the back-burner. So at this point, this was more of a priority and where I'm embedded, and what I'm trying to accomplish through Mars Hill Music. I do apologize to everyone who's waiting for a follow up to that record, it's not that I don't want to do it.

Everything we've been doing over the last couple of months - from our guides to our playlists - have been leading up to this weekend's Riot Fest in Chicago. So there is only one thing left to do (other than, you know, attending the damn thing!) and that's to release our "must-see" acts at this weekend's festival. Since it's packed with many great bands, I asked Thomas Nassiff to count down his five most anticipated acts in addition to mine. You can check those out in the replies. You can find more information about Riot Fest at their website. Have fun this weekend and be safe!

In honor of Rise Against's Long Forgotten Songs: B-Sides & Covers 2000-2013 release, we've teamed with the band to give away a signed CD and vinyl copy of the album. No 'Fastest Finger' or 'RT To Win' this time around - we want to hear why you deserve to win the set. Give us your best answer in the replies - we'll pick a winner tomorrow.

With one week of fantasy football in the history books, early-season winners and losers alike turned their attention to the waiver wire to get ahead of the game and pick up sleeper players. Now looking ahead to Week 2, we've got "Start-Em, Sit-Em" advice from Dan Campbell of The Wonder Years and some waiver wire suggestions from Brian Schmutz of The Starting Line. Both of these gentlemen are participating in our first-ever AP.net Fantasy Football Challenge, which raised over $2,500 for charity this year.

Today's fourth and final interview comes from Light the Avenue, and you can read it right here.
