This week on the Self Promotion Forum, I found the excellent In Wrecks, a post-hardcore four piece hailing from Glasgow. The band have just put out the wonderfully exhilarating Creation Myths EP, five tracks of high speed, massive sounding, 90s emo tinged post hardcore, via Struggletown Records. If you're a fan of Glassjaw crossed with Sunny Day Real Estate, you'll love these guys and their new EP is 'name your price' on their Bandcamp.

Lady Gaga has announced her new album, ARTPOP. Looks like she's taking Jay-Z's album release via app to the next level. The single releases August 19th, album/app pre-orders begin on September 1st, and the album/app releases November 11th.
Built by TechHAUS, the technological branch of HAUS OF GAGA, the app itself is a musical and visual engineering system that combines music, art, fashion, and technology with a new interactive worldwide community - "the auras". Altering the human experience with social media, we bring ARTculture into POP in a reverse Warholian expedition.
Our pals over at Light & Noise recently took a lot of live footage at the most recent Bridge 9 showcase. Today, they released video from that showcase featuring Candy Hearts playing some of its best jams. Check it out in the replies.
We lose ourselves a little bit and give in to the fact that we just play music onstage and there are times when Jason is off somewhere else in the venue picking flowers for a girl out of a gesture of kindness, and then he comes onstage and breaks something, and I have no idea anything is going on to be honest. All of us kind of zone out for a little while and let the mechanics of our body take over.
