I recently interviewed Christian McAlhaney of Anberlin and he had this to say about the possibility of an Acceptance reunion. Look for the full interview early next week.
Thereís always been whispers of reunion stuff here and there. Basically, I think Jason is the last person everyone is waiting on. I donít even know what that would look like or what we would do, I just want to get the dialogue going because itís been awhile. I think a lot of people would like that, and I would like it too. There was never any closure for the guys in Acceptance. We just said we were done and never played any final shows or anything. There was just never any closure.
After taking a couple years off, Bronx, NY's Daly's Gone Wrong are currently working on a new EP titled Finding Your Heart. Head to the replies to listen to their first song since returning, "Ayy Cicci! Where's the Fuckin Wings?!" In an effort to create music they want to hear, the band combines elements of pop punk, ska and hardcore. "Let's sing it loud like we used to..."

I haven't done any kind of "you should listen to..." posts in a long time, but that new EP from The 1975 has me inspired. You should check that out ... it's damn good. Then get into their lasttwo EPs as well.
According to the no-last-name writer "Adam" and "a source," Miranda Lambert has told her husband Blake Shelton to "keep away" from Cassadee Pope. I'm sorry, but I'm calling bullshit on this entire article -- the wording, the lack of any real detail, and it just being stupid. Furthermore, I've got "a source" that says it's all bullshit and I really just wanted a reason to vent after a shitty day. You can skip over this news post. It won't hurt my feelings.

The last song on the record, 'Legendary', was the first song that made the album. It was the first that was written. I think the song was a bit of a turning point in general for us. It was the beginning of last summer, we had just gotten off tour, we had just moved into a house together in Tempe, Arizona, and living with each other for the first time.
Life After Liftoff snagged the opening slot on the Norfolk, VA date of Sum 41's Does This Look Infected? Tour back in November. Today, we are excited to premere the video they put together with the Sum 41 camp about the experience: "Day In The Life: Opening Band Edition." The video was shot by Jacob Bonham and Katie Cole, both of Dangerkids and This Love. Hit the replies to watch it.
Opening for Sum41 was a dream come true. 10 years ago I saw them (for the first time) on the, "Does This Look Infected" tour with The Starting Line. That show will forever be one of the coolest shows I have ever been to. Through the years, Sum 41 have taught me so much about music and how to perform; so...
Mistaken For Strangers, a documentary movie about The National, directed by Tom Berninger, is set to debut at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival on April 17, the opening night. The showing shall be followed by a special performance by the band.
Jimmy Kimmel has invitedMorrissey back on his show. As one of the biggest Moz fans around, even I can say that Kimmel has been the one to come out looking good through all this - while the King of Mope looks like a petulant child.
"I'd like to invite him to join the show to discuss," Kimmel said. "I'm an open, even-handed person, and I consider all points of view... If I keep saying it, maybe it will be true. I've invited him to talk this out, and perhaps we will both be better men for it, but probably not."
