Looks like Craig Owens is writing a new album. He recently posted on facebook that, "Yes, I'm writing a new record. No, it's not I&G. No, I can't say what it is." Come on Craig, you wanna tell little 'ol me, right?

Update: Craig would like to know what album/project you think he should write next.
I get the marketing reason behind it -- but I really am getting tired of having to "like" a band in order to hear music. I'll like something once I like it. I prefer less friction when trying to hear new music. Maybe it's just me. Anyone else with me?
Southern Lights posted a new song titled "Comfort In the Quiet" on facebook. Their new EP Bring Me Peace, produced by Erik Ron (Panic! At the Disco, D.R.U.G.S., I the Mighty) is now available on iTunes.
Facebook today has launched a "listen with" feature that, when clicked, will let you listen to what your friend is currently listening to on Spotify or Rdio - together, note for note. A group can join a chat together, and listen to the same music, at the same time. Look out Turntable.fm.
The Classic Crime are no longer with Tooth and Nail Records, and their guitar player Justin Duque has left the band to focus on his new born baby. The band's lead singer has started a side project called The Vocal Few with his wife.
Want to see a new music video from Philadelphia rapper Tayyib Ali? Of course you do. Head over to his official Facebook, take a second to "Like" the page, and contribute to the goal of 500 he's deemed it necessary to obtain before releasing it. Sure, it's not the most forward-thinking promotion, but this kid definitely deserves the attention. Check him out and give him some love if you like what you hear.
