Sumerian Records have announced they dropped Capture the Crown.
Weeks ago we announced we would be dropping a band. Everyone at Sumerian puts incredible amounts of time, energy and passion in to every band we work with and it's important that as we continue to grow, we have that same fire burning for each artist on the roster. We are now ready to let you know that we will be parting ways with Capture The Crown due to musical/creative differences. We wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors.

Mike Hranica's (The Devil Wears Prada) new book, Home for Grave, is now available on Amazon.
The story behind the song, Home For Grave tells the tale of Ian Mitchells: a normal man from an ordinary town. Eager to complete his homework as a boy and caring as a young gentleman, Ian is the product of logic and responsibility. However, while his intentions are true and his actions are harmless, the line drawn between Ian’s birth and death is strewn with painful loss and perilous mediocrity: a combination often unnoticed within the somewhat neverending process of life and humanity. Through the stages of youth, love, and death, Mike Hranica lends poetic description to the tragedy of routine...

These stories seem to be a dime a dozen these days, but they still draw me in when I read them: Britney Spears' songs are being used to deter pirates off the east coast of Africa.
Ms Owens, who regularly guides huge tankers through the waters, said the ship’s speakers can be aimed solely at the pirates so as not to disturb the crew. "It’s so effective the ship's security rarely needs to resort to firing guns," said the 34-year-old, from Gartmore, near Aberfoyle, Stirling. "As soon as the pirates get a blast of Britney, they move on as quickly as they can."

Foals would rather you steal vinyl than stream it on Spotify.
I’d rather somebody stole the record on vinyl than bought it or streamed it on Spotify. I think you should listen to music on vinyl and I think basically anything is better than [Spotify].

Daytrader wonders how you'd feel about them playing some shows again.
So, we never "officially" broke up, and we have been talking about maybe playing some shows again. How do you internet friends feel about that?

AFI's Hunter Burgan has written a "letter to his former self."
Your passion for music will lead to many opportunities. You’re smart enough to know which of them to seize. I have no doubt of that. You have a lot of hard work in front of you, but you will enjoy it, and when you become me (I know that’s a weird phrase) you will have plenty to show for your efforts. Follow your heart, be true to yourself and remain curious about the world around you.

We're excited to bring you the EP stream from Winnipeg, Canada's Sights And Sounds. Signed to Pure Noise and Distort Records, the band will certainly be making new fans on their UK tour with Bring Me The Horizon and Pierce The Veil. Silver Door will satisfy the post-hardcore and punk palette and I am confident this band will be making an impact in 2014 and beyond. Listen to it in the replies.

Check out our interview with Less Than Jake's Vinnie Fiorello. We mostly discuss See The Light, which will be released on November 12th through Fat Wreck Chords. We also talk about the upcoming Fat tour and the band's future touring plans, which includes a cross Canada trek in 2014.
We’re not going to make Pezcore pt. 3 because that’s silly and regressive. It is upbeat and energetic, which I think some people are misunderstanding as back to the basics.

We're streaming a new Such Gold song titled "Choosing Cages" in the replies. It continues on the melodic hardcore path the band carved out on their last effort, Misadventures. The track will appear on an upcoming split with Placeholder as part of Secret Audio Club's Wax Packs project. The 7" series comes packaged like baseball cards, and they're due out January 28th.

In the replies, you'll find a compilation of tips and tricks that we've accumulated from an assortment of Fest veterans, who are generously lending their knowledge to form a bit of a Fest survival guide of sorts. Vinnie from Less Than Jake offers up what he calls the "Gainesville Coffee Crawl," Chris from Fake Problems contributes a bunch of nonsense, and there's even more where that came from. Check it out in the replies, feel free to comment with your excitement for the four-day weekend – which kicks off tomorrow! – and don't forget that to pick up your tickets online before they're taken down...

Epitaph Records is streaming Survive This!'s new album on YouTube. This is the album that includes a song called "Pardon Me" which contains lyrical gems like, "just wait until I get my hands on you, bleed bitch bleed [...] I've never hit a woman but you're wearing me thin." I'm just going to say how I feel about this one: it's absolutely embarrassing that a label I have respected since a kid would put their name on this trash. Disgusting.
