Hit the replies for a video of Brand New performing "Missing You" live at the Filmore last week. This is one of the better versions that contains the reworked bridge and outro (starting at about the 2:08 mark).

All Time Low's Future Hearts debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart today, coming in with 80,251 equivalent album sales while the No. 1 album, the Furious 7 Original Soundtrack, chimed in with 111,109 equivalent album sales. But Future Hearts actually outsold the soundtrack significantly in terms of traditional album sales -- 75,375 to 45,084 -- and was surpassed due mainly to strong single sales of Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again." We've got an article today that outlines the flaws within Billboard's new formula to determine the Billboard 200, which this week deprived the general "Warped Tour scene" of its first-ever Billboard 200 No. 1 album. You can check out a pull quote from the...

Julie Beck, writing for The Atlantic, about Dashboard Confessional:
In my high school bubble, it was cool, or at least unobjectionable, for Dashboard to be my favorite band. When I got to college, it became quickly apparent that this was something to hide. Emo was narcissistic, whiny, embarrassing. To be referenced ironically or, preferably, not at all. Emotion wasn’t cool. You know what was cool? Pretention.

In case you haven't heard, We Are The Union are back. We are premiering the lyric video for a new song called "Call In Dead" - give it a watch below. The song picks up right where their last record, You Can't Hide The Sun, left off. It's equipped with a chorus that's guaranteed to be belted out at live shows, with a hefty bass and guitar riffs galore being equally important. The verses of the song stand out on their own, as the line "We're more than just dead weight" is almost as memorable as the chorus. The track is the opener on the band's upcoming EP, Keep It Down, which releases on May 15th via Paper + Plastick Records. Tour dates, track listing, and album art can also be found in...

I've long held that Red City Radio is one of the most underrated punk bands on this website. The Oklahoma City quartet impressed with its first two full-lengths, The Dangers of Standing Still and Titles, playing the type of punk rock with gruff vocals that generally calls for PBR + whiskey shot specials. But their newest offering, a self-titled LP and debut via new label Staple Records, is ready to flip the script a bit. The album, which you can stream in the replies, sees Red City Radio exploring new territory in the form of songs that are a bit slower, a bit less reliant on the forbidden beat, and playing more into the strengths of main vocalist Garrett Dale's deep drawl. The punk...

A Great Big Pile Of Leaves' debut LP, Have You Seen My Prefrontal Cortex?, is turning five on June 22 this year. To celebrate, the band will perform the album in its entirety at the Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 19; pre-sale starts today, with general public on-sale beginning Friday at this link. Here is a sentence I wrote about this record in 2010: "After my honeymoon phase with Have You Seen My Prefrontal Cortex?, I continue to love it dearly and take it to bed with me every night."

Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie opens up about Tidal, Indiana, and divorce in an interview with The Daily Beast.
“If I had been Jay Z, I would have brought out ten artists that were underground or independent and said, ‘These are the people who are struggling to make a living in today’s music industry. Whereas this competitor streaming site pays this person 15 cents for X amount of streams, that same amount of streams on my site, on Tidal, will pay that artist this much,’” Gibbard says. “I think they totally blew it by bringing out a bunch of millionaires and billionaires and propping them up onstage and then having them all complain about not being paid.”
