Slingshot Dakota is featured on a very cool 7" split that comes out tomorrow via Soft Speak Records, for which they recorded a cover of Rainer Maria's "Rise." We are premiering the cover song in the replies, which is a very chill indie take on the tune that then turns into a slightly-less-chill-but-still-pretty-chill take on the tune when it kicks up a notch near the end. Slingshot Dakota's partner in crime on this split, which benefits Hopeline, an organization focused on suicide prevention and awareness, is Pet Symmetry, one of Emo Mayer Evan Weiss' many bands, whose contribution you can stream here. Buy the split here.

Tom DeLonge of Blink-182 and Angels and Airwaves, speaking to Faster Louder:
"I tell people condoning streaming is like condoning the Chinese that are killing elephants for their tusks and carving ivory statues,” he railed. “It’s cool to put on your shelf but if you really think about what you’re doing it sucks. Streaming music is doing the same thing to artists – might not be killing ’em but it’s killing the industry. It might be cool for you as somebody that likes music but you’re not really thinking about the effect it has. We’ve got to value our art, you know?"

As the current Bill Cosby situation has demonstrated, we, as a culture at large, are still struggling with how to talk about, deal with, and handle horrible accusations. There are no easy answers. No "go to" steps that you can follow and feel as though you've done the right thing every single time. In the past few days direct accusations against Austin Carlile have been made on YouTube, Tumblr, Instagram, and the internet at large. After spending some time talking with others in our community, and the staff as a whole, I do believe it's important that we present the information as it stands.

Looks like The Dillinger Escape Plan aren't super happy with how similar The Ghost Inside's new album cover looks to one of theirs.
"If I saw the two next to each other, I would have personally asked to make a few changes and not make the vinyl the same… I mean I wouldn't have let that slide personally but I don't give a shit what other bands do… I do feel bad that those guys have to deal with all this drama right now during the release of their album. I'm sure they worked really hard on it."
