Dr. Dre has issued a statement to The New York Times.
Twenty-five years ago I was a young man drinking too much and in over my head with no real structure in my life. However, none of this is an excuse for what I did. Iíve been married for 19 years and every day Iím working to be a better man for my family, seeking guidance along the way. Iím doing everything I can so I never resemble that man again. I apologize to the women Iíve hurt. I deeply regret what I did and know that it has forever impacted all of our lives.

Unless you were living under a pop-punk rock: you've probably seen that The Wonder Years' highly anticipated new album leaked last night. The somewhat interesting part is that the source of the (really bad quality) leak was apparently from streaming service Deezer. Someone over there probably has some explaining to do this morning. However, according to multiple users the album also soon appeared on the UK Spotify as well. Over the past few years it's felt like album leaks were less prevalent (and with streaming services: less sought after) but this feels like one of the biggest in a long while. I'm genuinely curious how this will impact the band's first week sales. Now I'm going to go...

Spotify has clarified their new privacy policy. Gizmodo looks at the changes. I'm still not cool giving my music player access to any data it doesn't need to do what it's supposed to do: play me music (but hey, that's just paranoid me).
The TL;DR explanation of exactly how Spotify plans to access your personal data is simply that the streaming music service will not access your photos, location, voice, or contacts, unless you give ďyour explicit permission.Ē In other words, youíll need to opt-in.

Ryan Key of Yellowcard has launched a Kickstarter for his new studio: The Lone Tree Recordings.
You and meóRyan Key. Together, we can bring The Lone Tree Recordings to life. As the lead singer and guitarist of Yellowcard, I practically grew up in a studio. I know how important it is for musicians to be able to write and record their music so they can share it with the world. So I'm reaching out to all music fans and musicians to help support this studio as a space for talented musicians to write and record the songs they love.

But this Friday, we've got a nice treat so you can start your weekend off right.Head over to their profile where you can check out their single "Chelsea," which is a poppy emo song falling somewhere between The Promise Ring's Nothing Feels Good and Into It. Over It.'s Proper. Which means it's good. After listening be sure to preorder and then you can pick up a CD copy via All Sounds or a limited edition cassette via Superjazz Tapes.

On Saturday, Staci Altomari and I took our cameras to the inaugural Pinelands Music Festival in Millville, NJ (along with Craig Ismaili and Shana Davidson who were on interview duty). Between the two of us, we shot sixteen bands, including Young Statues, You, Me, and Everyone We Know, The Spill Canvas, Vacationer, Good Old War, and Jukebox the Ghost. Head to the replies to check out a handful of our favorites. You can also see the entire day through both of our lenses in one big chronological album of the day.

Peter Robinson, writing for Noisey, about ghostwriting:
But popís move towards a more rockist interpretation of credibility isnít open for debate: itís already happened, and you can understand why some artists are keen not to credit writers, or to insist that they are credited even if their sole contribution was managing to record their vocal while not falling over.
Jason Tate on 08/20/15 - 04:03 PM
It looks like new NOFX may be on the way.
Weíre working on new songs and new music. So weíre probably going to start on pre-production and working on new stuff.

Wave. We're back from our one week break and are immediately talking about Star Wars. It's exactly what you would expect from a podcast named AbsolutePunk, right? This week we look at how the whole Pure Noise Records/JJR situation impacted being able to listen to Four Year Strong's latest album, why A Wilhelm Scream isn't as crazy big and popular as they should be, the reasoning behind labels streaming albums a week or so early, our favorite b-sides, the upcoming Motion City Soundtrack album and our fears surrounding it, if there's a song of the summer, Frank Turner's new one, the new Better Off songs, and some good old fashioned nostalgia. We missed podcasting and hope you enjoy this...

Fall Out Boy talked with Billboard:
We've been doing this band for 13, 14 whatever years. I think that challenging ourselves to do new things is important. It's hard to find new things sometimes, you know? People said this tour was going to be polarizing, but we're doing bigger numbers than we've done before, you know? I think it's probably tapping into different kids or something.
