You can read our interview with Dangerkids here. The band is hard at work on their sophomore full length album, to be released on Rise Records.
And then there are some bands that have something to say, and I'd say we fall into that category. So I think if someone could catch us playing "Paper Thin", then I'd feel satisfied that they gave us a fair chance.

We're excited to announce that We Are The Union are reuniting to play Four Chord Music Festival at Club Zoo in Pittsburgh, PA on August 31st. Real Friends have also been added to the impressive line-up, which already includes The Wonder Years, The SpacePimps, Modern Baseball, Turnover, Rust Belt Lights and more. Tickets are on sale now.
In 2012 we decided to walk away from We Are The Union. We were frustrated. We felt like there wasn't a place in the music scene for us. This is our return, our rebellion. This is us with our middle fingers up, proud to push against the grain and be different. See you in Pittsburgh.

Close Your Eyes bassist/backing vocalist Sonny Vega has left the band in order to focus on his new child. He has been replaced by Alex Whitten.
A lot of you have been asking about Sonny, so we would like to clear that whole thing up. Sonny and his wife are having a baby and he would like to be home to be a full time husband and dad. We are super happy for Sonny, and it just worked out that a long time friend of the band, Alex Whitten, was finishing college at the same time. So, Alex will be taking Sonny's place in the band.

Read my review and take a look at my photos from the Mansfield, MA stop of the 2014 Vans Warped Tour on July 10th. I caught such acts as Yellowcard, Every Time I Die, Four Year Strong, The Story So Far, K.Flay, Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties and many more.
The Vans Warped Tour celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and a lot has changed in those two decades. One thing that has been consistent for the last several years is people complaining about the line-up. While it's undeniable that the tour's focus has shifted, the adaptation is an easy one to make. As with past years, the 2014 roster boats plenty of old favorites in addition to today's hot acts and up-and-comers.

Island Records has promoted Eric Wong to executive vice president / general manager at the label.
Until very recently Wong served as executive vice president of marketing at IDJ, where he created and developed strategies for Kanye West, Rihanna, Avicii and Bon Jovi, among others. He joined IDJ in 1999 and worked with a range of artists including The Killers and Fall Out Boy. He left in 2006 to juggle executive marketing positions at both Bad Boy Entertainment and Atlantic Records, where he helped guide the careers of Jay Z, Janelle Monae and others. In 2009 Wong formed Wong Management, serving as part of Mariah Carey's team, before returning to IDJ in 2011.

Screeching Weasel have launched an Indiegogo campaign for their next album.
Baby Fat: Act 1 is the first act of a two-act rock opera I've been working on for the past few years. It’s not a rock opera in the traditional sense - the ones done by bands in the 70s seem to me to be concept records – but an actual opera with a linear narrative, featuring different singers portraying different characters. Baby Fat is the logical next step for Screeching Weasel after years of making themed and concept records like My Brain Hurts, Anthem For A New Tomorrow, Emo and These Ones Are Bitter.

Broadway have parted ways with Uprising Records. They will be releasing a new single, "Volcano Jack," on Friday.
Hey guys, so lets cut to the chase. We're here today to announce our departure from Uprising Records! We've have a long and interesting relationship with them for five years now, but the Broadway boys are finally stepping out on their own and into the wild.

Now to quell any worries, this will not affect our new album in anyway! In fact our entire recording process for this 3rd album has been independent. Funded by us, for you! We are by no means, rich fellows, or even wealthy. In fact we're probably just above the poverty line. We work at pizza joints, pawn shops etc. We...

Green Day's Mike Dirnt will be producing an indie film called "Crickets."
Dirnt, along with Green Day's longtime manager Pat Magnarella, will produce “Crickets” from a script by Alfredo Botello. The story, by Botello and Jack Umbrella, centers on the relationship of two estranged brothers. One, an aspiring stand-up comic, is dying of a terminal illness. He asks his brother, a depressed office drone, for one last request: to go on stage and perform his material for him to see if he ever really had talent. What he doesn't reveal, though, is that he has an even bigger surprise in store.

Steven Hyden, writing for Grantland:
CDs outsell vinyl records many times over, but CDs don’t have nearly the cachet or booster-ish press coverage. Even cassettes have been revived by indie labels like Burger Records, which are successfully remaking cheap, junky, and sonically wobbly plastic-encased media as collectible boutique items. (This partly explains why, at this very moment, there are cool kids listening to White Lion tapes post-ironically at the trendiest dive bar in your neighborhood.) CD buyers, meanwhile, are made to feel like we’re living in a Richard Matheson story.

New York heavy metal band, Unlocking the Truth, have signed a deal with Sony Records worth potentially $1.7 million. Best part? The members are in eighth grade.
Sacks says the boys have a chance of becoming the new face of rock because they are unique — black artists excelling in heavy metal, a genre typically dominated by white musicians. The seven-figure Sony contract was submitted for a Manhattan judge’s approval Friday because the musicians are minors.
