Panic! is Brendons band. I'm happy to be a part of it! But fans need to understand that my job in Panic! is to play bass. That's where my role in Panic! begins and ends. Bands evolve and they change. That will always be true. When that happens you can either evolve and change with it, or dismiss yourself from it. I LOVE my job with Panic! So I am choosing to evolve and keep having the best job in the world.
On Friday I had the chance to see New Found Glory co-headline with Yellowcard. It was a wildly nostalgic and rowdy Friday Night at a sold out Electric Factory in Philadelphia with support of: Tigers Jaw. Check out my write-up in the replies!
Bad Timing Records (Thomas' slush fund) signed pop-punkers ROMP not too long ago, and are gearing up to re-release the band's EPSorry, Not Sorry with the bonus track "Burrito." It's about burritos. Have you ever had a burrito? I'd never heard of them before this song, but they seem pretty tight. Check out the music video if you like: A.) Burritos B.) People eating burritos C.) Balloons D.) Pizza (just kidding).
North Carolina pop punks Summer Wars will self-release their debut EP, Better Days, this Friday, October 30th. You can stream it in the replies right now.

If you're into Masked Intruder and '90s SoCal punk then you should probably check out The All Brights, a goofy new quartet most notably featuring Dave Hause (Big Dave Wave) from the Loved Ones and Sean Sellers (Shreddin Sean) from Good Riddance. Check out "Hell on a Surf Board" in the replies and if you like what you hear the band is releasing an EP called ...Are Wild For the Night! digitally on Friday and physically on November 6 via Red Scare Industries. Pre-orders are still available.
These days people are so caught up with boring bullshit like families and careers and stuff. I feel like it's a major problem with society. Look around you! There are waves to be shredded and...
Hope everyone is having a good Sunday, I'm currently enjoying a burrito induced coma. Just wanted to make a quick reminder about the podcast's current teespring campaign. It's running for a little over one more week - so if you want a shirt make sure you pick one up! Big thanks to everyone that has already grabbed one.
Steve Knopper, writing for Rolling Stone, on how Pandora owes record labels over $90 million.
In a victory for artists and record labels, Internet radio service Pandora announced Thursday it would pay $90 million to settle a lawsuit over royalties for songs recorded before 1972. Due to a U.S. copyright loophole, Pandora has played these songs without compensating Warner, Sony, Universal and other labels that own the rights to the master recordings in recent years.
J.K. Rowling has written an original Harry Potter story detailing Harry's life as an adult, father and Ministry of Magic employee. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts I & II It will debut in London next summer, hopefully making its way over here at some point. Wonder what the spell is to combat male pattern baldness.
It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isnít much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.
I'll be speaking with Mikey Carvajal, lead vocalist of Islander later today when they hit the House of Blues in Las Vegas, NV, as part of Korn's 20th Anniversary tour for their 1995 debut album. Feel free to drop any questions you may have in the replies.
Unconditional Arms - the instrumental post-rock project conceived by The American Scene guitarist Jeffrey Wright - have released a live album/concert film titled Live at Santo.

The band tears through "Conscious Whirr," "First Look" and "Son, Daughter, Daughter" in front of an intimate studio audience, live and unabridged, in their hometown of Oakland, CA.
Check out Justin Bieber's newest single, "Sorry," and it's equally amazing music video, in the replies. The song was produced by Skrillex and Blood Pop. If Purpose is even half as good as its two singles, we're in for a real classic.
