Hello. I wanted to take a moment to tell everyone here that today will be my last day as a Senior Editor for AbsolutePunk. I'll be moving into the "retired staff" category -- my username will still be red, but I won't be contributing any more news posts or reviews, etc, to the site any longer (though I'll continue to co-host the podcast with Jason). My last post, which I've published today, is a review of The Wonder Years' No Closer To Heaven. In an effort to not take up a bunch of homepage real estate, I've written a letter about this on my new personal blog -- you can read that here if you want. After five and a half years of writing for this site, it's safe to say that AP.net and its...

Well, someone in the other thread called this one. Tom DeLonge talked with Billboard about his upcoming project, that he brought "Poet Anderson" originally to Blink-182, and more.
DeLonge explains that he actually brought the Poet Anderson concept to Hoppus and Barker. "I sat in a room and showed them animations and everything and said, 'Do you guys want to do this with me?' And there was a tiny bit of interest, a lot of awkward silence and a lot of emails that were just ignored," he says. "So I moved on and got it done. It's not like I'm doing these things and didn't ask them to go along for the ride, ever. People don't know this shit 'cause I didn't go out and talk about it."

Last week, I had a chance to speak with Nick Thomas of The Spill Canvas during the tail-end of the band's One Fell Swoop Tour. In addition to an extended discussion of the One Fell Swoop tour, we also discussed the "hiatus" the band had undergone over the past few years, as well as the possibility of new The Spill Canvas music, and in what way that may be released. You can find the whole transcription of the interview here.
But the ten year thing was what really brought out the possibility of the Spill name. We would go out and do this tour, and if it feels good, if it feels relevant, and people want new music at all, we would be able to tell by the response. And the crowd response was...

I was recently lucky enough to hold my first in-person interview with no other heart than Mac DeMarco during soundcheck at his recent Buffalo date. We talked about touring, pop music, wine and his new album, Another One. You can read the full interview here.
Yeah, you know, I was just exhausted. I think a lot of those songs sound sort of brooding, but that's how they felt when I went into it, and coming out [of recording], I was like, "Man, I gotta stop being such a sad shit about this," you know, "I'm pretty young, I get to tour the world, I get to play music for a living. Get a grip, dude." So I got a grip.
