After a little bit of a break, the Self Promotion Spotlight is back with an emo tinged bang in the form of Massachusetts' Companion. The band are built up around one dude and a wonderfully amicable form of emo. If you like your emo to have a catchy, almost pop-punk-like edge, you'll love Companion. Recommended for fans of Owen, Transit's Listen And Forgive and general endearing earnestness. Download their new EP Broken Stories as 'name your price' here. Interested in being a part of the Self-Promotion Spotlight? It's easy, just sign up for an AbsolutePunk.net account and post in the Self-Promotion forum.

Read our write up of the June 12th Austin stop of the Tigers Jaw, Pianos Become The Teeth, and Sainthood Reps tour here.
Aside from the fact that this is Tigers Jaw’s final tour for who knows how long, I think the diversity of this tour is what makes it stand out. Dad Punchers loud version of indie-rock fits very well with Tigers Jaw’s indie influence meets old-fashioned emo/pop-punk style. Sainthood Reps old-school distortion-using jams bring another flavor to the menu, while Pianos Become The Teeth emotion-infused hardcore tears apart the stage. Even though Tigers Jaw are calling it quits for now, their legacy won’t be left in the dark, as they’ve paved the way for many more bands to...

The second episode of the AbsolutePunk.net Podcast is now available for your listening pleasure. This episode features the second of the three conversations with Say Anything's Max Bemis. Jason and I talk to Max about the second disc of the band's recent All My Friends Are Enemies rarities release. Most notably, we talk more about the band's early origins, how they got signed to Doghouse, and how Drive-Thru Records had a big influence early in the process, amongst other things.

This upcoming weekend will kick off the 19th year of the Vans Warped Tour and we know you're just as excited to be attending the punk rock summer camp as we are. Of course, one of the many dilemmas of the festival is trying to figure out which bands to see once you arrive to the festival. Fear not, AP.net reader. We've been compiling our "Warped 30" list for a while now so that you can use it as a cheat sheet on which artists you absolutely must see. So check out our picks in the replies and fret no more about the 2013 Vans Warped Tour.

Just in case you missed it last week, we premiered the first episode of the AbsolutePunk.net Podcast. Our first guest is Max Bemis of Say Anything and we discussed the My Friends Are Enemies rarities release. Episode 2 with Max premieres this Friday (June 14th) and it's a really good one, as he shares some stories with the world for the first time. Don't miss it.

Today is a stacked day for new releases, but don't overlook I Can See Mountains. They're a great band out of Buffalo, NY reminiscent of Transit, Saves the Day and old Taking Back Sunday. Their debut album, Life on a Houseboat, is available digitally today, and you can stream it now in the replies. Physical copies will be available on July 2nd via Panic Records; pre-order it here and receive an instant download of the album.

I've wanted an official AbsolutePunk.net podcast for a while. I love listening to podcasts, I love doing them (you may remember user anamericangod and I had a brief podcast run), but we just never had the time or resources to really commit to doing one on the site. That all changes today. I am extremely proud to introduce the first episode of the AbsolutePunk.net Podcast. We were fortunate enough to have Max Bemis of Say Anything to be our first guest and we recorded so much great stuff that we divided it up into three separate episodes, with the first one premiering today and the other two being released over the course of the next two weeks every Friday. We talked to Max about the...

I didn't realize how stacked this month is for releases until I sat down to compile this list. It's just....wow, what a month. Needless to say, you will have plenty of choices for your summer soundtrack. Whether it's pop-punk, hip-hop, or stoner rock - there will be something for everyone. So check out my top five most anticipated releases of June. I know a lot of you will disagree (but I'm hoping a few agree!), so feel free to share what albums you're most excited for as the weather heats up.

You can read our new interview with Stick To Your Guns here. Be sure and catch the band on this summer's Vans Warped Tour, as well as check out their split with The Story So Far.
From The InterviewWe'll tour with anyone and anywhere, because that's all I've wanted to do is play shows. So obviously if I can play shows with whoever, wherever, we definitely will, especially with a band like For Today - we look at that as an opportunity to bring a different way of thinking to the table in a room full of kids who are incredibly impressionable. You know what I mean? There's a lot of kids that grow up the same way, I grew up in a house that was religious, I grew up going to church and stuff like...
