Against Me! bassist Andrew Seward is no longer in the band.
I’ve left AM!. No drama here. I reached a point where I need to focus on other things. Respect to Laura and James. The last 10 years ruled. -Andrew
It’s been an honor and privilege to stand on stage with Andrew for the past 10 years. I am sad to see him go, but I wish nothing but the best for him moving forward. – James
It’s heartbreaking to know that Andrew won’t be standing next to me out on stage the next time I stand upon one. I realize that at this point there’s a possibility that it may look pretty ridiculous to carry on playing under the name Against Me! If I didn’t feel like I had something that I really...

Update 2: Apparently that confirmation has been retracted. Who knows what June 18 will be. - TN

Update: Looks like the album release date has been confirmed by an employee at Def Jam. - Thomas Nassiff

Kanye West has tweeted from his account for the first time in months, saying simply "June Eighteen." It's probably safe to assume that's a release date for his new album that we know is recorded.

Grammy.com recently sat down to interview Paramore.
When we started writing I actually blocked out a lot of how I felt about struggles as a band and losing two members and friends. It started to be a problem when I had this intense bout with writer's block. All my lyrics were garbage. There were crumpled pieces of lined paper all over my room. It was frustrating. I let myself go a little bit in the interludes and in a few lines of a couple different songs and just told myself, "It's OK to [be] honest. … Just don't be mean about it."

Max Collins, of Eve 6, is making a solo album -- it's a PledgeMusic campaign, you know the drill by now.
In February I started recording, without a record deal or any sort of plan in place, completely on my own resources. I recruited friend and Fountains of Wayne drummer Brian Young to lay down some drum tracks and before I knew it we had the record tracked. Then came the question of how we would finance it; pay the people involved, get it mixed and mastered and out.

Jim Adkins has described the new Jimmy Eat World album as an "adult break up record."
He went on to describe his muse in piecing together a break-up record: "In writing material for 'Damage,' I wanted an initial jumping-off, so I started writing, searching about love songs. And the kind of love songs that I’m attracted to, that interest me or I find interesting to explore, are the windows of adversity, heartbreak, or break-up… They always speak to me more."

Kitty Pryde has written an article for Vice about her observations after Danny Brown "got head on stage."
I’m mad that a person thought it was okay to pull another person’s pants down during their performance in front of about 700 other people. I’m mad that a person thought it was a good idea to perform a sex act on another person without their consent. I’m mad that nobody made her leave. I’m mad that Danny had to actually wonder what he was supposed to do at that point. I’m mad that when I went home and said I had no respect for that girl, I was attacked for being a “slut-shamer” (after literally leading a girl to his hotel room at 3AM at her request) and, even more outrageously, for...

I Fight Dragons have raised $50,000 in 36 hours to fund their new album/vinyl release via Kickstarter. As a result, they have added additional "stretch goals" - whenever the campaign reaches a new milestone, backers will receive additional rewards for their original contributions. For example, the $20/double gatefold w/ companion graphic novel has become a triple gatefold w/ companion graphic novel, fold-out poster, fluorescent blue vinyl, a 7" picture disc shaped like an 8-bit fireball, and an exclusive flexi-disc with a thank you and secret music.

With the Punches don't think you should order vinyl from Hang Tight Records.
We keep getting reports of people ordering "Keep It Going" and "It's Not The End Of The World" on vinyl from Hang Tight Records and never getting them. We have tried to contact them and rectify the situation but it appears they are no longer answering messages from us. Do yourself a favor and DO NOT ORDER OUR RECORDS FROM THEM. Again we apologize to anyone who may have lost money, from this.
