PropertyOfZack have released a new feature (and new site) titled "Inside." In its inaugural edition, POZ goes inside Run For Cover Records.
My motivation for graduating college was pretty much solely to have time to get a handle on Run For Cover, and when I got my last semester of grades and knew I graduated, it was definitely one of the happiest and relieving moments of my life. It was like the worst thing in my life was immediately gone and I had complete freedom to dedicate all my time to exactly what I wanted to do, and most importantly I had a job day one after graduating. So many people in my classes graduated in 4 years with honors and couldn’t find any work in a major city. I...
PropertyOfZack recently sat down with William Beckett and spoke about his upcoming debut full-length, opening up about his personal life, and more. Check it out here.
William: Yeah, well I mean ending the band was a big part of it. Because, not to get too into it, but certainly I wasn’t necessarily… what’s the best way to put it… I wasn’t necessarily encouraged to talk about my private life because of my band. From my band.
POZ: It would be bad for the fanbase if they knew you were not “available?”
William: Which in my opinion is fucking stupid! And it was really uncomfortable for a long time. So as soon as I was able to…
Have you recorded or demoed out any new tracks?
We’ve been demoing this whole year. We’re just trying to be as prepared as possible before we go into the studio next time. We recorded Get Up Kids cover for a compilation that’s coming out.
POZ: What song did you do?
Joe: “Campfire Kansas.” We got it back, and everyone is so excited. That’s one of my favorite bands and I didn’t want to fuck it up. We’re all excited about that....

PropertyOfZack have posted a fairly in-depth interview with Andy Biersack (Black Veil Brides) and Juliet Simms. POZ covered many topics with the couple, including the stereotypes against the Biersack's band and the "empty amp" scandal as well as Simms experience with The Voice and the future.
It’s as simple as this: Black Veil Brides is the band with the long hair and the body paint and the makeup. That’s the “faggy” band for that. And then Black Veil Brides stops wearing the makeup, cuts the hair, and it’s “the guy sounds like the guy from Nickelback” now. Okay, we come out and play new songs and they’re “oh, that’s different. But there has to be something!” So they go on stage and...
PropertyOfZack has posted a feature on Thrice's The Artist In The Ambulance with commentary from Ed and Teppei from the band. The feature can be found here.
By intentions I mean that we wanted to push oursleves, experiment, and build songs that we though had a unique place in the world. Not everyone would agree with me on this, but I think that music like any art has it’s basic likable elements, but really makes a piece of music, or art, or whatever, special is the elements of it that make it unique.
Pat: And then on the last day we – because we were doing the whole thing completely live so we were set up. So we recorded an EP of punk songs as a joke.
Jared: Like a five song EP of punk songs.
Pat: And then we did a Neil Young tune. And then we did a punk version of one of the tunes on the record. We just had some fun at the end.
Jared: Yeah. It was way different than last time. Instead of having 30 songs we wanted to record, we only had 14, 15. Once we got them narrowed down – it was a way more focused effort this time.

We’re off the label. We’re doing this all ourselves. We’re going to do everything ourselves. At this point, we’re not being looked at and have no offers. I don’t know if we would take an offer at this point. We’re in a cool position because we got a lot out of being on the label like good tours and a fan base. Now we have that to work with.
Haulix did an interview with Zack Zarrillo about his site PropertyOfZack. You can check it out here. The site will also be featuring interviews with Jason and yours truly in the coming weeks.
I just pay attention. If there's buzz or enough people recommend something to me, I'll listen most the time. We also take submissions for Showcases, and that's a great way to find new bands. We covered many more small bands in our beginnings, but slowly transitioned away from that due to demand. About two years ago we brought out Showcase to help smaller bands as best we could. It's been a success.
