PropertyOfZack have posted an interview with Real Friends' bassist/lyricist Kyle Fasel. He really likes us.
It is tough. I’ve learned to back away from social media and from looking at what people say. We’re always really active with social media, updating our stuff, but in terms of looking at what people say, I try and stay away from it. AbsolutePunk is a terrible website. I don’t look at it, because I really truly think that Jason Tate stirs things up. I get it, that’s his job, he makes money because people go to the website and he wants to stir things up. That’s fine.

Dark Horse Comics will be publishing a 10-part Fight Club sequel.
Fight Club 2 takes place alternately in the future and the past. It picks up a decade after the ending of his original book, where the protagonist is married to equally problematic Marla Singer and has a 9-year-old son named Junior, though the narrator is failing his son in the same way his dad failed him.

At the same time, Palahniuk says readers will have an idea of Tyler's true origins. "Tyler is something that maybe has been around for centuries and is not just this aberration that's popped into his mind."

Head to PropertyOfZack to see what Tyler Welsh of Driver Friendly has to say about Third Eye Blind for BandsOnBands.
It wasn’t until my freshman year of college when I realized what an amazing band Third Eye Blind was. My girlfriend at the time, burned me a copy of their self-titled album. At first, I scoffed, “Why would I want to listen to an album from a lame one-hit wonder band from the 90s?” She insisted, and I remember listening to “Losing a Whole Year,” for the first time. Driving in my 1991 Jeep Cherokee on a Texas highway, my entire musical world shifted. This was pop. Pure, unadulterated pop. But it was so much more.

It's now been confirmed that Conor Oberst has dropped the libel suit against the woman who accused him of rape last year and recanted last week.
Oberst’s publicist confirmed Monday “that Conor had his lawyer ask the Judge to dismiss the complaint against Joanie Faircloth. Conor’s only goal throughout these court proceedings has been to expose the truth. As per his statement of last week: he looks forward to moving on to happier times.”

Kanye West has revealed to GQ that he wants to release his new album this September or October. He also states that his new single, "All Day" should be released in the next couple weeks.
I don't know, man. I hope I can get one of these songs out in the next couple of weeks, just to have something up and running. But I think most likely September. I go back and forth. Like, should it be September or should it be October? Should it be November? When Beyoncé was working on her last album, she took a while. I was thinking it could somehow come out in June, like Yeezus, and just kill it for the summer. But then I'm like, I have to work on Adidas and be with my child.

In celebration of this week's release of Anberlin's final album, Lowborn, we will be posting an in-depth, three-part interview special looking back over the band's 12-year career. Part I with drummer Nate Young can be found here.
Honestly, I would say that if we could be remembered in a light of just positivity and encouragement. It hits me at different times. We were signing yesterday, and so many people were sharing these stories. “I was listening to you since I was 13.” “You helped me get through some heavy stuff.” “Your music helped me when my mom passed away.” All these things that were so deep. It was hitting me, and I was thankful I was wearing glasses so no one could see I...
