It's a Mark Rose-athon around here lately. Last week we had Mark on our podcast, and right before that we teamed up with Swell to premiere some Spitalfield acoustic videos. Well, today, we've again got some acoustic videos filmed by Swell for you to check out. If you head to the replies you'll find Mark performing "Georgiana" and "I Can See You (With My Eyes Closed).

These stories seem to be a dime a dozen these days, but they still draw me in when I read them: Britney Spears' songs are being used to deter pirates off the east coast of Africa.
Ms Owens, who regularly guides huge tankers through the waters, said the shipís speakers can be aimed solely at the pirates so as not to disturb the crew. "Itís so effective the ship's security rarely needs to resort to firing guns," said the 34-year-old, from Gartmore, near Aberfoyle, Stirling. "As soon as the pirates get a blast of Britney, they move on as quickly as they can."

Foals would rather you steal vinyl than stream it on Spotify.
Iíd rather somebody stole the record on vinyl than bought it or streamed it on Spotify. I think you should listen to music on vinyl and I think basically anything is better than [Spotify].

Daytrader wonders how you'd feel about them playing some shows again.
So, we never "officially" broke up, and we have been talking about maybe playing some shows again. How do you internet friends feel about that?

AFI's Hunter Burgan has written a "letter to his former self."
Your passion for music will lead to many opportunities. Youíre smart enough to know which of them to seize. I have no doubt of that. You have a lot of hard work in front of you, but you will enjoy it, and when you become me (I know thatís a weird phrase) you will have plenty to show for your efforts. Follow your heart, be true to yourself and remain curious about the world around you.

We're excited to bring you the EP stream from Winnipeg, Canada's Sights And Sounds. Signed to Pure Noise and Distort Records, the band will certainly be making new fans on their UK tour with Bring Me The Horizon and Pierce The Veil. Silver Door will satisfy the post-hardcore and punk palette and I am confident this band will be making an impact in 2014 and beyond. Listen to it in the replies.

Check out our interview with Less Than Jake's Vinnie Fiorello. We mostly discuss See The Light, which will be released on November 12th through Fat Wreck Chords. We also talk about the upcoming Fat tour and the band's future touring plans, which includes a cross Canada trek in 2014.
Weíre not going to make Pezcore pt. 3 because thatís silly and regressive. It is upbeat and energetic, which I think some people are misunderstanding as back to the basics.
Deborah Remus on 10/30/13 - 08:10 AM
We're streaming a new Such Gold song titled "Choosing Cages" in the replies. It continues on the melodic hardcore path the band carved out on their last effort, Misadventures. The track will appear on an upcoming split with Placeholder as part of Secret Audio Club's Wax Packs project. The 7" series comes packaged like baseball cards, and they're due out January 28th.

Welcome to our last pre-Fest 12 feature of 2013: The one where we use "Fest" as a verb. In the replies, you'll find a compilation of tips and tricks that we've accumulated from an assortment of Fest veterans, who are generously lending their knowledge to form a bit of a Fest survival guide of sorts. Vinnie from Less Than Jake offers up what he calls the "Gainesville Coffee Crawl," Chris from Fake Problems contributes a bunch of nonsense, and there's even more where that came from. Check it out in the replies, feel free to comment with your excitement for the four-day weekend Ė which kicks off tomorrow! Ė and don't forget that to pick up your tickets online before they're taken down...

Epitaph Records is streaming Survive This!'s new album on YouTube. This is the album that includes a song called "Pardon Me" which contains lyrical gems like, "just wait until I get my hands on you, bleed bitch bleed [...] I've never hit a woman but you're wearing me thin." I'm just going to say how I feel about this one: it's absolutely embarrassing that a label I have respected since a kid would put their name on this trash. Disgusting.

I am undecided if Virgin America's new take on how to give everyone the "this is how you buckle your seatbelt" airplane speech is genius or not ... but I'm posting it anyway. This is the catchiest thing I've heard all day.
