Show PhotosTaking Back Sunday - Austin, Texas (Caitlin DeWeese)
Caitlin DeWeese on 02/25/15 - 07:34 AM
Taking Back Sunday kicked off their latest tour with letlive. and The Menzingers last week. Their stop in Austin was a sold-out, non-stop party. I've grown a little bit jaded by the number of Taking Back Sunday sets I've seen at this point (#humblebrag), but each show is always just as energetic as the last. Catch a few photos from the show in the replies, as well as a link to a full gallery on our Facebook page.

Megan Seling, writing for the Nashville Scene, takes a look at how summer festivals in our music scene are handling representation. Some are clearly doing better than others -- some barely look like they're trying.
Male musicians, if you're finding yourselves on lineups where women are so grossly underrepresented, ask the promoter why that is. Ask to include more female musicians in your shows and tours. Prove to festivals that women deserve more than 2 percent or, worse, to only get attention when magazines and festivals produce shit like "Hottest Chicks of Hard Rock"or "Girls Only" stages. I'm goddamn tired of female musicians being treated like lesser humans or tokens in the music...

Steady/Steady have been working on some music with Michael Govaere (ex-Every Avenue). We are premiering a new song called "Pseudo" - give it a listen in the replies. The song is built up by a constant kick-drum, and the chorus sounds more like a William Beckett solo track than the southern rock tinge of Every Avenue, equipped with "oh-oh-oh's" and everything. It was mastered by John Naclerio at Nada Recording Studio (Brand New, My Chemical Romance). If you like what you hear, be on the look out for the band's debut EP in April.
