I hope everyone has a great Labor Day. Stay safe and enjoy (hopefully) the day off.
Through the years the nation gave increasing emphasis to Labor Day. The first governmental recognition came through municipal ordinances passed during 1885 and 1886. From these, a movement developed to secure state legislation. The first state bill was introduced into the New York legislature, but the first to become law was passed by Oregon on February 21, 1887. During the year four more states — Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York — created the Labor Day holiday by legislative enactment. By the end of the decade Connecticut, Nebraska, and Pennsylvania had followed suit. By 1894, 23 other...

Matt Sharp, formerly of Weezer, talks to Flavorwire about the new Rentals album and his influence on Weezer's early albums.
Would it have been any better or much worse? Would people have said, "Oh my God, Weezer's in Nashville making an acoustic record!"? Maybe! Or maybe people would have said, "This is the most boring record I've heard in my fucking life!" There’s this idea that I would have been a one remedy fix-all, but there’s also that possibility of, "be careful what you wish for." Maybe it would have been a much bleaker thing with me in there. Who knows? I would have maybe put us down very pretentious roads.

Sirens and Sailor's van was burglarized the other day and they are taking donations.
Every single dollar we brought with us, every single penny that we have earned over the past month of touring overseas has been stolen. Licenses, credit cards, essential medical supplies, laptops, electronic equipment, even down to our toiletries, GONE. In a matter of minutes, our livelihood has been taken from us. Our dream come true has become the exact opposite.

Bruce Springsteen will be releasing a graphic novel on November 4th.
The book is loosely based on Springsteen’s song of the same name, and inspired by the 1950′s children’s book “Brave Cowboy Bill.” According to its Amazon page, the book is about “a modern legend of a criminal who starts out in diapers and confronts the roughest edges of adulthood.”

Brian Fallon talked with Canoe about The Gaslight Anthem's new album.
Well, the record is what I did during difficulties. But I wouldn’t say the record is directly about the difficulties — not as much as people think. I’m not writing a news column. It’s not like, here’s the details and here’s the street name. It’s not the Kardashians, it’s a band. I want to write songs people can relate to right away. But I try to write in a broader sense. So it may seem very specific, but it’s not necessarily about the things you think. It’s a funny way of trying to articulate yourself in a song, and sometimes it’s very difficult.

You can check out our brand new interview with Palisades here. The band just finished recording a brand new record with Eric Ron at Grey Area Studios, which is set to release later this year.
Right now, it's "Nut up or shut up", proving time. Honestly, I feel like we have a lot to prove, and I feel on this album we did. I think one of the best thing that we found with this new album coming out is that we truly found out who Palisades is.

"Have any thoughts on that Drew?"

"Nope."

That might be my favorite running gag in the AbsolutePunk Podcast, but it unfortunately rings a little too true this week. Due to some technical issues, Drew wasn't able to join us for our recording, so you'll have to deal with just Thomas and me. This week we look at a variety of topics: Follow-up from last week and looking at a few questions and comments we saw. Things like do we love music based on merit or past love for an artist? Does all music from our formative years hold up or does it get more of a critical "pass" as we get older? Then we talk a little about Thomas' prediction in last week's episode that Tim had left Transit -- only...
