Ten years ago today was a pretty special day. Arguably two of my favorite records that came from this "scene" of ours were released. Acceptance's Phantoms and The Receiving End of Sirens' Between The Heart and The Synapse were both released on April 26th, 2005. If you're having a lazy Sunday like me, throw on these records on and take a trip down memory lane. Jump to the replies to talk about both of these classic albums and share your memories with everyone.

Nate Ruess will be releasing "Ah ha" on Monday. The artwork for the single can be found here. Oh, yeah, it was done by Sam Means ... Nate's former bandmate from The Format. This is the song that turned my excitement for this album up to 11, I'm excited to hear other thoughts on it.

Green Day's long time producer, Rob Cavallo, tells Kerrang that he's heard new Green Day demos and they sound "fantastic." Just no more triple discs please.
"I recently heard five new songs that Billie has written and demoed, Rob tells Kerrang!. "Let me tell you, they were just fantastic. He is absolutely at the top of his game. Fans can be sure that when they do return, the music will be amazing."

Twenty One Pilots are doing an AMA on Reddit this morning. Their new album is not bad ... but I can't stop laughing when they straight faced sing "gangsters don't cry, therefore I'm misty eyed."

Matt Skiba talked about the possibility of joining Blink-182 full time:
Matt: I think it's too soon to know. I'm about to go on an Alkaline Trio tour for a couple months. There's some time and some things that those guys need to figure out before we can start saying I'm a permanent member. But that is a hope of mine. If we're discussing recording an album, I think that seals the deal. But, we shall see, only time can tell.

This was one of those episodes where when we finished recording we both knew we had a lot of fun recording it. I think that comes across in our spirited discussion. On this week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast we talk a little about the Star Wars trailer, the acceptance of nerd culture in the mainstream, Brand New playing "Sealed to Me" live and if listening to live videos ruins the experience and creates unfair expectations about new music. We also touch on The Ataris as the lost band from a specific wave of pop-punk -- which leads into a talk about the things that could have been in the scene. We talk about The Wonder Years' new album being finished and what our expectations and...

A documentary about Agnostic Front, titled The Godfathers of Hardcore, is up for funding on Kickstarter.
Film and Music Video Director Ian McFarland (Rungs in a Ladder: Jacob Bannon, The Outlaw: Dan Hardy, The Problem Solver:Joe Lauzon, Meshuggah, Killswitch Engage, Fear Factory, Agnostic Front) is crafting an intimate portrait of the two industry leaders, two of the most respected individuals in the 35-year history of hardcore punk music. In addition to inspiring and nurturing multiple generations of bands that followed their lead, Miret and Stigma have remained close friends through great adversity that sometimes threatened their very existence.

Thom Fekete of Surfer Blood has incredibly rare cancer. You can donate here.
In a statement on his GoFundMe page, Fekete says his cancer is so rare that there is little research on it, and the alternative treatment plan his team of doctors is recommending as a complement to chemotherapy is only partially covered by insurance.

Lauren from Chvrches got another rape threat (the beyond messed up threat is included in the tweet, just fyi).
My band is lucky enough to have some of the most awesome, supportive and respectful fans in the world and we are so excited to be in the studio making an album to share with them. Yet, on a daily basis, we still receive communications like this. These people never learn that violence against women is unacceptable. But they also never learn that women will not be shamed and silenced and made to disappear. I am not going anywhere. So bring it on, motherfuckers. Let's see who blinks first.
