Head over to DIY Mag to read the story on how Brand New's Deja Entendu artwork was created.
“I don’t remember them really giving us any art direction at all throughout the whole process,” recalls Don. “I remember them liking what we submitted, and being a pleasure to work with during the entire process. It was a really fun project.” For such a seemingly easy process, the team never thought the artwork would have such an effect on fans. “It was pretty amazing to see the response to the artwork,” says Don. “If I could go back, there are a zillion little things I would do differently. I was much younger (and greener) at the time, so some of the light and shadow work is a bit clunky - but I...

Mark Kozelek is becoming better known for being awful than for his music. John Mulvey writes for Uncut on how the musician targeted a journalist at his show the other night.
Two hours into the show, however, as Kozelek lurches back onstage for the encore, the theme takes a substantially nastier turn. First he names a British journalist who has, for reasons that are not entirely clear, annoyed him (full disclosure: that journalist is a friend and fellow Uncut writer. I would hope that my disgust at what Kozelek says is not materially affected by this, though he will doubtless beg to differ). Then he begins a spontaneous song about the writer – a woman – about how she “totally wants to...

GameStop has swooped in to buy Geeknet (the company that owns ThinkGeek) on the heels of the company finalizing a deal with Hot Topic.
Geeknet terminated a previous agreement to be bought by Hot Topic Inc., and GameStop will reimburse Geeknet for the breakup free associated with that deal, the companies said Tuesday in a statement. The Hot Topic bid had a $122 million equity value. The acquisition combines GameStop’s 6,600 stores with a retailer that sold $140.7 million of geek-chic merchandise last year, mostly through its ThinkGeek website. GameStop is betting that ThinkGeek’s offerings, which include “World of Warcraft” pint glasses and “Mass Effect” hoodies, will be an easy sell to...

You may not be familiar with More to Monroe yet, but you certainly will be soon. The Frederick, MD-based post-hardcore band has a freshly-inked deal with Roadrunner Reocrds, who will release their new EP, Appalachia, on September 15th. Head to the replies to watch the premiere of their new music video for the EP's lead track, "Jack." You'll hear a strong Underoath influence in their music, along with shades of some of the genre's current heavyweights, such as Beartooth and Letlive.

We're premiering Sleeptalk's new music video for "Sea of Fire" in the replies. The song and video were inspired by the film Palo Alto, the coming-of-age tale of four teenagers. The track appears on the Los Angeles group's debut EP, Pure, which is available now. The band's spacey rock sound is a bit like a mix of New Politics and Angels and Airwaves.

This is All Now have booted their bass player after allegations of sexual harassment of a 15 year old.
All of us here at This Is All Now have recently been made aware of the statements made about our bass player, Thomas Angenbroich via social media. Upon finding out about this information we privately addressed the situation immediately. Although it is difficult to determine fact from fiction or here-say from reality, we are taking this issue very seriously and have determined that the best course of action is for Tom to take a step back from This Is All Now. Our fans are everything to This Is All Now, and always will be. We are very grateful for all your support that has gotten us to...
