Tom DeLonge recently talked with Gigwise.
I’m not totally sure how it’s going to work but the goal is to find an area or an environment that’s different and not just a normal studio to be together as were architect the songs and inspire each other in ways that we did back in that timeframe. I think if we can pull off those few things we’ll be in really really good shape. We’ve always done what we liked, and on the Untitled record there was a lot of debate where we thought our fans wouldn’t even like it, but I think we succeeded by sticking to what we wanted to do, and it turned out to be the one that the fans like the most.

A petition has been started by a local to have Attila removed from Skate and Surf.
Last year, the legendary Skate and Surf Festival returned to Asbury Park after ten years away. While the man behind the scenes, John D, has the city's best interest at heart, he has made careless mistakes when booking certain performers. Last year, upon moving the festival to Asbury, the city required he remove the hip hop artist DMX from the bill, citing homophobia in his music. This year, a band called Attila is on his festival's lineup.

Throughout this year, we've been bringing you our favorite new releases in quarterly playlists. With the new year a couple of weeks away, we've compiled all of these playlists into a massive one that we call: "2014, A Year In Music." We've also put together a fourth quarter playlist with the best from the past three months which you can listen to as a stand alone playlist if you'd like. If not, press play on our 90-track summary of some of the best music of 2014.
