Tom Delonge has posted an update about Angels and Airwaves and revealed Ilan Rubin's large role this time out.
I have written all the Angels albums largely by myself. I had soo much I wanted to say at the time… But soon even I was bored of myself… of my tricks, vices, and routine chord progressions. It’s hard to quantify all that ilanrubin has added to this Angels album.. He truly has written and contributed on every single inch…. EVERY part, of every song, on every instrument with me. I have never in my life encountered a better musician. It has been a challenge to adapt both of our styles to eachother, but holy shit when we figured it out a year ago (a year in to the 2 year journey)...

Portugal. the Man have put together a very cool promotion for Earth Day. They've recorded an "endangered song" to help raise awareness of the endangered Sumatran Tiger. I got a rare vinyl in the mail (one of only 400 were created) with the message that it will degrade after a certain number of plays and that the only way to make sure the song lives on is to share it -- so, I ripped the file and have uploaded it for you (check the replies). Take a listen and don't forget to check out this website for more information on this entire project and the Sumatran Tiger.

Sontag Shogun's random interview is here.
We'd tour with a thirteenth century minstrel. You know they got into some crazy post-show antics. We'd also probably have had our tongues removed at some point for pissing off a minor lord.

Beats Music will begin selling in-app subscriptions on iOS. Probably a good move if the reports that say they have subscribers "in the low six figures" are true.
Beats CEO Ian Rogers says the decision to sell within the Apple app was fairly straightforward: More than half of Beats users use iPhones, and it’s very hard to get an iOS user to subscribe if you don’t sell in-app. Two other music subscription services — Rhapsody and Rdio — have also agreed to sell subscriptions within Apple’s app, though Rdio raised the price for for in-app subscriptions from $10 a month to $15 a month to accommodate Apple’s tariff.

As is almost a yearly tradition: Morrissey has spoken out against Canada's seal hunt.
The seal hunt in Canada is struggling to make a start this year due to almost no markets, and China especially is refusing to sell Canadian seal meat. Thank you, China! China has stated that "animal rights protests" are the reason why they have dropped Canada's custom. The annual East Coast seal hunt/kill started Monday - against a strong wave of trade and court challenges. Europe continues its ban on seal products. Gail Shea, the federal Fisheries Minister for Canada, says that baby seals are "killed humanely", and explains how the baby seals are shot by high-powered rifles. Is this a death that Gail...

A photographer was not happy with Red Jumpsuit Apparatus using one of his photos without permission. The entire ordeal can be found on Rohan Anderson's page.
Many things shocked me about this response, usually I receive an email saying something along the lines of “Sorry! We weren’t sure of the original owner, we’ve taken it down for you.”. The fact that they decided to “ban” me from any future shows simply for standing up for my intellectual property absolutely stuns me.


Update: It looks like this has now been worked out.

We were out at The Wonder Years' sold-out stop of The Greatest Generation Tour with Fireworks, Real Friends, Citizen and Modern Baseball in New York City on April 17, and our friend Sheri Berman came with us to shoot some photos. Check out the shots on our Facebook page. Now that the North American leg of this tour is over, we want to hear from you guys about your experiences at the stop you went to and what you thought of the tour package as a whole. Remember, if you're in Europe or the UK, The Greatest Generation Tour hits you in May.

American Football has reunited and will be playing two shows this fall: one on Sept. 28 in Urbana-Champaign, IL, at the Pygmalion Music Festival, and one on Oct. 11 at New York City's Webster Hall. To recap: this is what the website countdown was leading to, the repress of their self-titled LP is up for preorder now, and the band has an old/new song streaming now.
"Obviously, we knew the time was ripe for three middle aged dudes to play some old songs about teenage feelings, and stand around tuning guitars for a long time." - guitarist Steve Holmes

That's right, Copeland will be doing an AMA on the site this Tuesday at 8pm EST. This is the first time the band's openly talking about getting back together, the new album and everything else that is Copeland. The last time the band did one was over five years ago, so be sure to make it around this time, who knows when the next one will be. Don't forget to pre-order the band's new album, Ixora, to have extra special treatment as well (this is a joke). To celebrate, post your favorite Copeland songs in the replies and let's rejoice!

Update: This has been postponed one day -- and will occur on Wednesday now.
