Over the weekend a fan was groped at Jeff Rosenstock's Austin show. Since then Jeff has posted a variety of messages to these kinds of shitty people on Twitter -- these are all worth reading. It apparently hasn't stopped the online harassment of this individual though, which is beyond fucked up.
There is no place for you at our shows if you don't have respect for women. Fucking none. Stop listening, stop attending.

Of Machines have canceled their crowdfunded EP after their vocalist Dylan Anderson has apparently gone missing for months. No refunds will be given out as Anderson is apparently the only band member with access to the PayPal account.

Norway will be ending FM broadcasts in 2017.
"Listeners will have access to more diverse and pluralistic radio-content, and enjoy better sound quality and new functionality," Minister of Culture Thorhild Widvey said in a statement. "Digitization will also greatly improve the emergency preparedness system, facilitate increased competition and offer new opportunities for innovation and development."

You, Me, & Everyone We Know have opened an online merch store and posted an update on previous merch orders.
Before the tour started, the idea of a tour shop was brought to my attention and it turned out to be extremely necessary in order to cover some start up costs. I want to thank everyone that contributed to that shop. This was also a moment of learning for me. I underestimated the stress that tour would put on my mind and my body and a few already delayed items took far longer than expected to go out. Here is the current status of all items from the tour shop ...

Cartel's upcoming UK shows probably their last.
We wanted to mention that while planning this year of Chroma shows, we decided that there is likely not much international touring in the cards left for the band, and these will be the band’s last UK shows. Though we would love to keep traveling the world and playing shows, it’s a wildly expensive endeavor to cart ourselves and our gear around the world, and we aren’t really banging out new tunes left and right which would necessitate us promoting it worldwide. While all this may be a bummer, that’s not to say the band is over by any means, we will still play shows in the US. We’re very grateful and excited that we get another shot at...

Typhoon have been occupying a certain space of somber but still catchy indie rock music for the last few years now, and their 2013 full-length White Lighter only brought them closer to their sweet spot. Which is to say, music you can think to, and tap your toe to. So when the band teamed up with electronic soundscape magician East Forest to remix their hugely affecting song "Post Script," we had to bring it to you. Check it out in the replies, and don't be afraid to get a little lost this morning.

Bastards is fronted by Jacob Belcher, the musician behind Its Teeth and former guitarist of Drop Dead, Gorgeous and Of Legends, but you won't confuse his new band with his previous projects. Bastards pummels its listeners with raw vocals and melodic hardcore in the vein of Modern Life Is War, The Hope Conspiracy, Defeater and Have Heart. Head the replies to stream their debut EP, Ethos, which is being self-released digitally tomorrow.

We are streaming a song from each side - "Something Real" from Bon Vivant and "Flailure (Reprise)" from Visitors.

The Offspring have their second number one on Billboard's "Mainstream Rock Songs" radio airplay chart ... 18 years after their first.
The gap of almost 18 years is the longest between an act topping Mainstream Rock Songs, besting Stone Temple Pilots, which paused 16 years between "Lady Picture Show" (Jan. 18, 1997) and "Out of Time" (Aug. 17, 2013).

Adestria has broken up.
I've always tried to be as honest and upfront with you as I can, and I'll do my best to keep that up. As of now, there is no new music, and no new tours for us in the future. We did a lot of soul searching the past few months, and we amicably came to the conclusion that we're taking an indefinite break. In truth, it's a bummer that we're done. But that's how this goes. Music changes, members change, and it's hard living off $5 a day haha. Only a rare few bands can make a life out of music, and we were lucky enough (and very grateful) to do this as long as we did. Thanks to all of you for the support, whether you downloaded a cd, let us crash on your floor, bought...
