Hot Water Music will be playing 5 shows in the NorthEast US for the holidays. Torche and O'Brother will be joining as well. Tickets go on sale this Friday, October 18th at 10am and you can find all the dates and details in the replies.
I really enjoy the brand of post-hardcore that City Of Ghosts is selling - it's much more down the Alexisonfire or Therefore I Am route than those garbage autotune clean/scream bands that are wreaking havoc right now. Today we're premiering their Easy Killer Records debut, The Calm In The Current - check out the EP in the replies, then pre-order over here.
This past February, Silverstein released one of our favorite albums this year, This Is How The Wind Shifts. Tomorrow the band will be releasingThis Is How The Wind Shifts: Addendum, which features four new and additional tracks. To mark this occasion, we're premiering the band's new video for one of the best songs on the album, A Better Place. Check it out in the replies and pre-orderAddendum.
Red City Radio is streaming its sophomore full-length album, Titles, in its entirety via the Paper + Plastick Records webstore (you can also stream it in the replies). Additionally, the label is offering $5 digital downloads and $2 off vinyl for today and tomorrow only to celebrate the release.
Tomorrow, one of our very favorite artists, Kevin Devine will release two new albums and we're celebrating both releases throughout the week. Today, you can check out our reviews of Bulldozer (from Ryan Dennehy) and Bubblegum (from yours truly). Tomorrow, you're supposed to pick up both albums. On Wednesday, we'll have a special "The Countdown" feature about Devine's fantastic discography and Friday will hold the latest AbsolutePunk.net Podcast episode with Kevin. For now though, stream the new albums and check out the two reviews and leave your thoughts and comments there.

Sullivan have returned after 6 years of being disbanded with a new song and album announced for 2014 (along with freshly minted Instagram and Twitter accounts). You can stream "Profile" in the replies.
Hayley Williams blogged about the status of Paramore's video for "Ain't It Fun" that was filmed a few months ago. The band was not happy with how the video was turning out and have decided to scrap it. The band is still planning on shooting a video for the song but in the meantime the band has released "Daydreaming" as a UK single and has shot a video for that.
We posted a picture a few months ago from behind the scenes of a video we shot for our song, “Ain’t It Fun” … Turns out, the process of making and completing this video has been well, not fun. ZING! To keep things short and BS free, we were not happy with where this video was headed and ultimately, made the decision to pull it.
Bouncing Souls have announced the lineup for its annual Home For The Holidays shows Dec. 26th-29th at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ. You can get tickets on the Chunksaah webstore. Details are in the replies.
Last year we asked you to submit questions in a news thread for our staff members, and we took those questions and answered them in a lengthy interview, broken into a couple parts. Well, that time has come again. We're asking the AP.net community to submit questions in the replies for us to answer. It's alright to submit questions for particular staff members, but do try to keep your questions broad. Have fun!
I’ve never cared when people thought we were just a joke band. We always have just done our thing and written what we like and what was important to us. Luckily, people have stood by us. I feel like the people that marginalized Blink back in the day have now seen that we actually have staying power, and it’s kind of a good feeling.
After a six-year wait, we're finally getting a new LP from New Bedford's A Wilhelm Scream. Lucky for us, the wait was well worth it. All Partycrasher does is prove that A Wilhelm Scream is the best technical punk band in the world right now, so we're extremely happy to be bringing you an exclusive stream of a new song from the record. It's almost unfair how this band can effortlessly blend some of the most interesting musicianship in punk rock with furiously fast tempos and anthemic choruses to boot, but "Devil Don't Know" does this perfectly – stream the track in the replies right now and preorder the album from No Idea Records if you like what you hear.
This week on the Self Promotion Forum, I saw that the wonderful Gatherer are looking for a new vocalist.
