So it seems that Brandon Flowers of The Killers has been keeping a collection of his facial hair shavings since 2008. That's a little weird, right?
"I have a Ziploc bag full of hair", Flowers revealed to the newspaper's Radar magazine. "I'll grow five or six days growth, make sure that the sink is dry, use an electric razor, catch it in the sink, and then I'm able to just scoop it into the bag!"

The YouTuber, Austin Jones, that was asking young girls to send him twerking videos, was going to be on Warped Tour, and inspired a petition, has posted a message on Facebook saying he's going to be in therapy and taking some time away.
What was I thinking? That's the question I know most of you want to know and, quite frankly, I want to know too. I have decided to take this time to reflect and to discover how to grow from this and become a better person. I owe that to my family, my friends, my fans, but most importantly to me.

Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness have released a "Toy Instrument" version of their song "Cecilia and the Satellite." Stream that in the replies.
What do you do when you have a spare afternoon in Nashville? Find a studio, a camera, a box of toy instruments and see if you can't make something cool happen. I had no idea what I was getting into when i showed up for this experiment, but I'm so pleased with how it all turned out. That said you may be able to tell by my face (or many faces) throughout this video that there were moments I felt a little overwhelmed by the process of stitching all these elements together. Enjoy

Today we have a contest on this here website featuring the one and only Rozwell Kid. In case you haven't heard of them, Rozwell Kid is from West Virginia and released a cool record called Too Shabby last year. The band convinced Chums to create a limited run of eyeglass retainers (nerdy straps that nerds like me wear around their noggins to keep their glasses from sliding down their nose while they headbang), so we're giving away a pair of those along with a copy of Too Shabby on vinyl, a T-shirt and a pair of tickets to see Rozwell Kid rip a gig with Superheaven and Diamond Youth. To win, just comment in the replies with your favorite song from Too Shabby and we'll pick a winner at...

Per Billboard, BMG has purchased Rise Records for an undisclosed amount of money. The label will retain its ownership and still operate out of Portland, and be the beneficiaries of larger global distribution under BMG. This news comes on the heels of Fearless Records being acquired by Concord Bicycle Music.
Under the deal, Rise will continue to operate out of Portland with Ericson at the helm of the digital-savvy company, but now the label will have BMG's resources for pushing its artists beyond the U.S., where it currently generates the vast majority of its revenue.

"Rise Records is more than a record label," noted Laurent Hubert, president of creative & marketing at BMG Chrysalis...

Chris Carrabba wrote this year's American Idol coronation song.
“It’s just too good to be true,” Carrabba tells Billboard. “He found a way to make it instantly his own song. What more can you want as a songwriter? That is what you do. You write these songs with your heart invested in it and as an expression of who you are and hope to be. It just speaks volumes to his talent.

Noisey is reporting that "Emo Night" has been approved for trademark.
Fast forward a couple of months and a few fawning press releases articles about the Taking Back Tuesday to this week, when there was an update in the status of their trademark application: It has been approved for publication. This is a major step for the branding savvy Taking Back Tuesday organizers, who also sell shirts with the phrases "EMO NIGHT" and "SAD AS FUCK" on them, in acquiring the trademark (which again, is not good, but bad). Should the trademark be granted, any live events using the phrase “emo night” would potentially be an infringement and subject to anything from cease and desist orders to lawsuits,...
