Anthony Raneri of Bayside will be releasing a new solo record in June.
For instance, I’m gonna put a solo record out in June. I just finished recording it before this tour. Then I’m gonna tour on that for a little bit. Then when that’s over, this fall we’re going to start writing the next Bayside record. The problem with the Covers record is, do we put off writing the nect Bayside record in the fall to record a Covers record, or do we just get started on the next Bayside record.

Mumford & Sons shared some thoughts on streaming service Tidal in a recent interview.
“We don’t want to be part of some Tidal ‘streaming revolution’ nor do we want to be Taylor Swift and be anti-it,” Marshall says. “I don’t understand her argument, either. The focus is slightly missed. Music is changing. It’s fucking changing. This is how people are going to listen to music now—streaming. So diversify as a band. It doesn’t mean selling your songs to adverts. We look at our albums as stand-alone pieces of art, and also as adverts for our live shows.”

Panic! at the Disco talked with Billboard about the band's future. New music could be happening this year.
I’m picking through demos that I’d been working on for the last couple of years. Every day I’m writing something. I write an idea a day. Even if it’s 10 seconds of a melody or a lyric. I love it too much to not work. It would drive me crazy to not do anything.

While this is Absolute PUNK, we obviously cover a number of genres to appeal to a number of audiences. That being said, I wanted to share a few photographs I took while at one of two sold-out Sturgill Simpson gigs at Stubbs in Austin.

Sturgill isn't a typical country singer; no boots, no goofy* accent. He is a normal dude with penchant for writing and playing to the crowd's every emotion. Even if you don't consider yourself a country fan, give Sturgill a quick listen and maybe try broadening your listening borders.

Check the comments below for a few shots and a link to a full gallery on Flickr.

*I'm from Texas, I can call it goofy.

The thing I love about pop-punk fans is that they're always looking for new bands. If you're one such listener, allow me to introduce you to Grayscale. The Philadelphia act will fit perfectly in your modern pop-punk playlist alongside such heavyweights as The Wonder Years, Transit and Real Friends. We're streaming their new EP, Change, in the replies. Produced by Gary Cioffi (Transit, Misser), the effort will be available digitally tomorrow through Anchor Eighty Four Records. It features three new songs and an unexpected cover of Barenaked Ladies' "The Old Apartment."

Kyle HuntingtonMariage Blanc's brand new album No Autobiography came out this week and is a must for fans of Pinback, early Death Cab and 90s indie-pop. I also haven't been able to stop listening to Platonick Dive's O V E R F L O W. If you like your post-rock with a 65daysofstatic sound, get on it.

If you're looking for a good way to watch Coachella this weekend, I recommend this page.
There's lots of acts at Coachella I want to listen to this year that are all playing on different channels. Since I'm way too lazy to remember to switch between them, I hacked this together so that I could just select all the acts I care about, and it will switch between them for me so I can just leave it on in the background. Right now it's only setup for weekend 1, but I'll update it before next weekend so that you can use the same URL to listen then also.

Ferry Corsten has remixed Andrew McMahon's "Cecilia and the Satellite" -- check it out in the replies.
This weekend, McMahon will join Corsten and Markus Schulz at Coachella—McMahon will sing live during their set as New World Punx. "I truthfully have no idea what to expect. This will be my first time guesting for an electronic artist and I'm very excited about it," McMahon admits. "Dance music has such a powerful effect on an audience and to be onstage at Coachella taking that in is going to be incredible."

I can't think of many bands that have had the kind of legacy Acceptance have had on this website. We knew they were special when they first launched and their full-length album has reached "cult classic" status for many of us over the years. They've been the band I've most often wondered "what-if" while spinning Phantoms for the thousandth time. After the band announced their upcoming Skate and Surf appearance, and two shows, many have been wondering what is next for the band. Today, we've got some answers. Check out my Q&A with the band to find out what brought the guys back together, that their future is now, and what we can expect now that the band's been writing again.

When Hopeless Records recently announced their signing of New Jersey indie-emo-rock-pop act Dryjacket, I wrote a really straightforward headline: Hopeless Records Signs Dryjacket, Which Will Be Your New Favorite Band Soon. So far, the band has dropped a music video for the opening tune from their debut EP Lights, Locks, and Faucets, and hit the road with Light Years and Bonfires (plus announced a late summer tour opening for Fireworks). Things are looking up for the young band, but now you get to see why I'm so excited about them by streaming Lights, Locks, and Faucets in full in the replies. The group makes poppy, melodic, guitar-driven, easy-to-listen-to emo songs, and presents them in...

Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy recently talked with Purevolume.
For us, we always were amazed at how serious rock bands took themselves. We were always back in our hotel rooms laughing, because this is the best job in the world. I mean, you can take your art seriously, but you should never take yourself too seriously. So I think we also had a blessing, going away for three years. It was great for our band, because when we came back, we knew. In reality, it was three years, but it was more like six years because the Internet moves so fast. So we knew that sonically, we had to change, had to make something that reflected that. So you had to understand that the world had moved on, but at the...

Autopilot Off have released another new song called "Lining Them Up" -- check it out in the replies. It's also available on Bandcamp. Beyond releasing new songs when they finish them up, the band doesn't have any other plans at the moment, but I'll take it.

The AbsolutePunk Podcast is a sucker for anything acoustic. And Morrissey. And we appreciate Brand New. This week we talk about Brand New releasing lyric books to fans and the significance of the band's recent actions and the stranglehold they have on the majority of this website. Then we look at Four Year Strong's future and compare and contrast their career with a variety of other bands. Are they regressing by going back to their "earlier" sound? Do we judge these new songs differently than other bands that tried something new and went back to the more accepted sound? And how does this all compare with All Time Low's new album and their career arc after Dirty Work? They're aiming for a...
