Hit the replies for a performance of "Play Crack the Sky" by Brand New in Dallas. The performance is proceeded by a little speech from Jesse about growing up and making it through your younger years. The band is also asking fans to bring two cans of non-perishable food to their New Orleans show.
Whatís funny is [that] Iím 37, and when you start playing music, night after night, from decades ago, you start to reflect on who you were when you were younger and the things you wrote music about. A lot of what we write music about is the uncertainty of being young, and trying to figure out who you are in the world, and what itís going to be like when you grow older, and who it is youíre going...

An excerpt from Tom DeLonge's novel is up on Rolling Stone. It's ... it's not great guys.
Poet took a step back as the Dream Walkers arrived at his table. Two men and one woman stood in full armor, helmets in their hands. They looked battle-hardened and cruel. The woman had a scar on her upper lip, pulling it to the side in an eternal sneer. One of the men wore an eye-patch, and when he saw Poet looking at him, he smiled, flashing a gap of missing teeth.

Turnover is on tour right now with Lydia, Seahaven, and The Technicolors, their third full US support tour since the summer started. They released Peripheral Vision to much critical acclaim back in the Spring, an album that our staff has enjoyed a lot, so we were pleased to be given the opportunity to talk to vocalist Austin Getz for a little while before the show. You can find the interview here. They revealed to us that they have been working on some new songs, and have even recorded a few with Will Yip which will be released sometime soon.
We just got done recording a couple songs with Will Yip. Those songs are already done. We did them two weeks ago. No release plans yet, we had...

We have premiered a song or video for them every year since 2012, and we are keeping that up today with their new single "Clarity." Hit the replies to watch the video for the new song. Per usual, the song should definitely appeal to those of you who really miss The Graduate with some vibes from The Dear Hunter. If you like what you hear, be sure pre-order the album.

Trophy Lungs are releasing their new album Day Jobs on October 16th via Antique Records. The record is about the moment when someone encounters the realities of life and the internal battle faced to keep his or her spirits alive when times get tough. We are premiering the new video for "Bathroom Graffiti," which you can watch below. The song clocks in at just over two minutes, being a rapid speed pop-punk track that reminds me a lot of Forever Came Calling's Contender. If you like the track, be sure to pre-order the record.

A new start-up called "TapTape" launched recently. It promises to allow you to "invest" in musical artists. I'm going to time travel, Back to the Future almanac style, and put money down on Fall Out Boy while shorting the hell out of a few others.
As the artist's success grows, you automatically earn TapCoins. Use them to buy merch, tickets, Amazon credit -or reinvest them in the next artist. Move up the leaderboard and prove you know how to spot talent.

Matt Pond PA recently blogged that he is in a "full on brawl" with Doghouse Records and that he will "never see a dime" from his newest album.
These will be our last shows for the foreseeable future. Our problems are insignificant in the grand scheme and Iíve tried to subdue most of thefires in my life privately. But weíre in a full-on brawl with our label, Doghouse. I will never see a dime from The State Of Gold. They would rather have us fail than succeed with anything in our lives.
