News has been pretty quiet on the Glastonbury Festival front this year in terms of the line up, but tonight the NME Awards are taking place live in London's Brixton Academy and Foo Fighters picked up the award for "Best International Band" moments ago. The band were unable to be at the event so recorded a video message which sees them declare that they will be headlining Glastonbury this year.
Toronto-based Cedar Boulevard have recently trekked across North America on tour and are now unveiling their "hard-hitting" self-titled EP. Already critically acclaimed and drawing comparisons to You, Me and Everyone We Know, My Chemical Romance and early era-A Day To Remember crossed with Pierce The Veil instrumentals this is a pop-punk band for those who like theirs to have a real bite. Founded after two members left their lives in Australia to put their all into their music, this is a band who cares passionately about their craft and are ready to cement themselves in the scene. Listen to their brand new self-titled EP, which was released just this week, in the replies.
Head North will release a new EP called Bloodlines on March 24th via Bad Timing Records. We are premiering the first single called "The Planet." The song has a lot of elements that remind me of what I love about bands like Have Mercy. The vocals start off in the spotlight, with only a pallid drumbeat and distant bass, before the chorus lets frontman Brent Martone let his emotion loose - both vocally and lyrically. Fans of Have Mercy's The Earth Pushed Back should really enjoy this one, as it makes it pretty clear why they're on the road together. Give it a listen in the replies to see what I mean, where you'll also find tour dates. If you like what you hear, I'm confident you'll enjoy...
Bayside have posted a new blog post in response to their video yesterday. This is really great to see and a positive step in the right direction. I hope more bands step up and do something similar. The full thing is in the replies.
I have seen some interesting and poignant comments about past Bayside lyrics being violent and misogynistic. I'm not going to deny it. I have always written songs from the top of my head. I write journals and then I turn them into lyrics. Literally. I wrote some songs when I was younger in which I was venting and at the time, it was a cathartic experience to get the crazy thoughts out. A lot of people do this in their heads and in private journals and my...
Laura Marling has unveiled the video for her single "False Hope", a fully electric and fantastic performance, which can be seen in the replies alongside the UK and European headline tour dates which were also revealed today. Also, Noisey has a piece on Laura Marling's recent two-year move to America, how she detatched herself from her life and what she is known for there, lost her mind a little only to find it again and write the forthcoming album Short Movie.
"I wanted to talk to people about the fucked up stuff that is going on the world - not preach about it, just talk. But nobody wants to there. Negativity is a bad smell in LA, and you can catch it. That ended up sending me a bit...

Paper Mag recently interviewed Tom DeLonge about UFOs, government coverups, and other things of that nature.
I think it's the biggest story of mankind. You take Christianity: a guy named Jesus came and died on the cross for everybody's sins. That's not as big of a story as what types of intelligences are living across the universe. I mean, the deep space project by Hubble, which is taking our most exotic telescope that we've ever made at the time, and focusing on the blackest part of space for 11 days straight. Literally a grain of sand, if you held it out at arm's length, is where the focus of this orbiting telescope is at. For 11 days. And it came back with a one-inch by one-inch...

The band Simple Mind is recording a "reimagined" version of Brand New's The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me. Their cover of "Limousine" can be found in the replies, and some info on why they're doing this is up at this interview.
In December of 2013, I caught Brand New for one of their discography shows, as well as their Bell House show in Brooklyn. That show went down in their fanbases’ eyes as one of the best Brand New shows of all time. It was an incredible experience for me as well and I realized that this band was pretty much in my musical DNA. I wanted to delve into their songs and put myself into them, because I felt like they were all a part of me. I also just love the Brand...
