Could Motion City Soundtrack be the latest band to plan a 10 year album anniversary tour? Or is the band planning another "5 albums in 5 nights" kind of deal? The band will be playing I Am The Movie in full at Bottom Lounge in Chicago on New Year's Eve.

In a recent interview with PropertyOfZack, Joshua Cain of Motion City Soundtrack mentioned that the band is planning on releasing a new record in 2014.
Realistically, there’s no way that the full album could come out before next year. I don’t think that’s possible. I would love it to — maybe it will. But I feel like 2014 is a much safer bet for a new album. We may release some songs prior to that, and you might know about it, but it takes time to set up a record. These days, maybe we’d record a record and release it right after we were done and not have any set up, because I don’t know how to do these things anymore. It all changes so much every day.

Claudio Rivera (ex-Saves the Day) has officially joined Motion City Soundtrack on drums.
Ladies and Gentlemen, let us be the first to introduce you to our newest member: Claudio Rivera! He is an old friend who has played many roles in our life as a band over the years. We are very excited to embark on this musical journey with him at the drum helm. Be sure and give him the glad hand should you spot him this summer at the Vans Warped Tour. Hell, that goes for any of us. Take care and we’ll see you soon.

Motion City Soundtrack drummer Tony Thaxton has left the band. Claudio Rivera (Saves the Day) will be filling in.
Our beloved drummer Tony Thaxton has decided to leave the band. We really hate to see him go, but we fully support him in his choice and wish him the absolute best in the future. Tony’s contribution to the band over the last 11+ years was immeasurable, both on the stage and off. We’re really glad to have been able to share some truly amazing times with such a great drummer and friend. He will be missed.

Here are a few words from Tony:

“I’m afraid the time has come for me to move on from Motion City Soundtrack. This was an extremely, extremely hard decision to make,...

Our interview with Motion City Soundtrack can be found here.
From the InterviewThrough the last couple of years I’ve noticed this shift with all of my friends getting married and growing up. People are having kids, parents are becoming grandparents, people are dying. I hadn’t really noticed that being drunk or whatever for so many years. Then suddenly it was like, “Whoa, I graduated high school almost 20 years ago. That’s crazy. What happened? This is really fast.” I think I’ve just really been obsessed with that throughout the writing of this record in particular, so almost every song has some form of that in it, in one way or another.

An interview with Motion City Soundtrack and a download of "True Romance" can be found over at Billboard.com.
From the InterviewAfter finishing the album and giving multiple labels a preview of the rough mixes, Motion City Soundtrack decided to once again talk to Epitaph, the label that released the group's first three full-lengths including its debut album, "I Am the Movie," in 2003. "We finally had our meeting with Epitaph and were like, 'This is the place we should be. This is our family -- there's way too much history. Let's go back and put out a record together," says [Josh] Cain.

Motion City Soundtrack guitarist Josh Cain commented in one of our news threads earlier today about his band's new album, Go, leaking unfortunately early after the record was accidentally made available for public streaming on SoundCloud. You can read the statement below - we personally think the album is a real fun listen, so we suggest preordering the record.
From Josh CainSo "Go" leaked. I am not sure if this is bad or good thing. I really feel that the right thing to do is to wait till its released and enjoy the record the way we had planned for you. We worked really hard on this and are very proud of it.

we hope you like it and help us continue to make music by supporting us by...

Motion City Soundtrack talk with MTV about their new album. You should be excited about this one -- it's MCS doing what they do best and not holding back.
From the ArticleWithout going into gory details, we spent a sixth of the budget that we had on the last record and like twice the time in this studio in Minneapolis, and we just had a blast with no sort of people to answer to or anything. We just wrote songs. We did it all on our own dime. It’s kind of thrilling and scary to know that you’re responsible for everything, financially as well as artistically.
