Billboard has posted an article on that whole Slaves being booted off Warped thing.
"When I booked him, my first question was, 'Is Jonny sober?'" Lyman tells Billboard via email, expressing concern over past problems Craig (who also fronts Dance Gavin Dance and Emarosa) had with drugs and alcohol. Craig admits he was drinking with his bandmates when the harrassment occurred.

Better Off, the band that released the criminally underrated (I Think) I'm Leaving in 2013, will release a sophomore LP titled Milk via Equal Vision on September 11. The album's first single, "Whatever, I Don't Care" is streaming in the replies, and Milk can be pre-ordered on the Internet (here, specifically). Imagine the state of affairs of your mailbox if you could pre-order a bundle with a carton of milk, hahaha!

Penny Marchand, Davey Havok's mother, writes about the early days of AFI:
I really don’t know. I can tell you what I do know though… He started in on rock and roll early. He was five years old when he asked for the AC/DC album Back in Black. At the time I was pretty naive about hard rock or punk rock and when I heard the record I was shocked. Why would my sweet child want to listen to this kind of music… the lyrics clearly suggested killing your mother. Of course they didn’t suggest that… but that’s what it sounded like to me. What happened to those days of Mr. Moon? I didn’t get it… and that was pretty much the beginning of not getting it for quite a long time.

This week we also talk about if listeners will accept the "new" Blink-182, what the "hiatus" means for The Gaslight Anthem, do we think it's ok for record labels to exist only to re-press albums, something about Brand New, the Vinylify service, and Bill Simmons' move to HBO and its impact on the internet/media world. The episode can be streamed and/or downloaded below.

We recently spoke with Joywave about their debut album How Do You Feel Now? Check it out here.
What gets sent to radio and what’s decided on as a single seems really arbitrary. We didn’t make the record trying to make any singles. There was no song where we were like, all right, this one has to be this certain way, outside of “Destruction.” The spots that we made quote-unquote “catchy” in that song are a joke. It’s tongue in cheek.

O'Brother will be releasing new music in early 2016.
Yeah, we just finished up the new record not too long ago actually. In fact, it’s being mixed right now. Musically, it’s substantially more minimalistic than our last two records. It felt good to strip things down a little bit. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still heavy and orchestral like O’Brother has always been, but it’s also different for us. I think every song has a section where only one of us is playing, so that’s pretty cool, and I’m sure the finished product will sound cool too. Right now we’re looking at a release sometime early next year.

Morrissey has posted a note on True to You saying he was sexually assaulted at San Francisco International Airport earlier this week.
Apart from "that's just your opinion", he would not comment, even though, since the penis and testicles were mine and no one else's, then my opinion must surely have some meaning. But, of course, what the airport security officer was saying was: your opinion will never count in the eyes of the law. The words "that's just your opinion" volunteered themselves from this 'officer's' mouth before he had even heard the question. He knew he could be confronted, but he also knew that he could never be challenged (even though the entire incident is most certainly...

Billboard has written a lengthy piece on the Front Porch Step situation. He talks with the publication about not wanting to be known as a pedophile, but god damn does the word "predator" sure seem to fit.
Talking with Billboard, McElfresh claims he didn’t ever knowingly exchange nude photos with anyone younger than 16, and in Ohio, where he was living, that’s the age of consent. That distinction wouldn’t matter in federal court, explains Los Angeles-based criminal defense attorney Jerod Gunsberg. “Under federal law, it is illegal for anyone to persuade, entice or coerce anyone under the age of 18 into sending sexually explicit photos over the Internet or cellular networks. It doesn’t...
