Tom DeLonge has written "the fastest punk song" of the last 15 years of his career, and is involved in 6 contracts with best selling authors to write 15 novels with accompanying EP soundtracks. These deals are part of why he couldn't work on Blink182.
One of the reasons all this Blink stuff went haywire was because I am in 6 contracts with Best Selling Authors that are co-writing 15 Novels with me personally. Each one has an EP soundtrack that launches with it. I told my manager the contract that was sent to me for the Blink deal contained weird new language that I had to drop all that music for almost a year. I said I couldn't, but I could record the album in and around those things...
Blink-182 (with Matt Skiba) added both "Go" and "M+M's" to their set at SOMA last night. A few videos have shown up and fans have reported in that the crowd was great and enthusiastic and that Mark called Matt "the new step dad that was going to be living with us from now on."
Future just dropped 56 Nights by surprise, a new tape produced almost entirely by Southside. Download it for free here. Future also recently hinted at a Dirty Sprite 2 mixtape and one produced by Mike WiLL called Ape Shit.
“You can spend many thousands more than you’d like,” one shop owner told me. “Then your profit is tied up in the records that haven’t sold. A small shop could feasibly sell everything on the day and pay its rent for a year, but it could drive a shop out of business.”
Over the last decade Red Scare Industries has proven to be one of the best punk labels so when they sign a new band it's probably in your best interest to give them a chance. Success hails from Seattle and today we're streaming a song from the band's Red Scare debut, Radio Recovery, which will be released on Tuesday and can be pre-ordered here. These guys would fit right in at Fest and might remind you of Red City Radio. I personally hear a bit of Junior Battles in there and that's possibly because they also recorded this release with Steve Rizun. Listen to "The Impossible Truth" in the replies and let us know what you think. It's a bit softer than the other tracks, but still...

Death Grips are streaming their "final" album, Jenny Death, which is the second half of double album The Powers That B. They also posted that they "might make some more" records on Facebook. Whether it's their actual last album or not, you can stream it in the replies.

This week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast takes a break from our regular "discuss the topics in the news" format to bring you a special episode. What we wanted to look at this week were the scene classics. What are the albums that define this music scene? What makes an album a classic? And why would we, specifically, pick it? Each one of the hosts had to narrow their selection down to three albums. We wanted to put some constraints on the list to make the choices more difficult. Then we all picked one extra "under the radar" personal scene classic. An album we consider to be in the same pantheon as the others but one that was probably under the radar or got missed by most fans of...

Hit the replies for a 22 minute video with JR Rotem as he talks about writing "Centuries" with Fall Out Boy. He walks through the process, goes over the sound files, and goes really indepth. Really interesting watch.
