Kevin Devine started today, and then later today finished, a moderately lofty Kickstarter campaign to fund his next two full-length records. According to the description Devine offered up on his project page, he wanted to raise a sum of $50,000 to fund the recording and releasing of one solo and one full-band album. These funds would go toward costs like the recording, producing, manufacturing, publicizing and marketing of the records; furthermore, the funds would help Devine tour and promote the albums following their release.

When I write "moderately lofty," I mean it. Devine pegging the costs here at $50,000 is certainly not ridiculous. He's seen some success as a musician, at...

PropertyOfZack recently spoke with Chuck Ragan of Hot Water Music and he revealed that the band will be taking some time off after its winter tour.
From The InterviewProbably quite a bit of time off in 2013. We may do some stuff here and there if it comes up. I’m completely overloaded already in my own direction. Everybody has got stuff going on all over the place. But who knows? The best part about the band, nowadays to me, is that we just do stuff when it makes sense and have fun doing it. There’s not a whole lot of pressure.

Silverstein's second release for Hopeless Records - This Is How The Wind Shifts - is the band's finest effort to date. The record's core concept is each track has a parallel track that tells the story in a different light - what would have happened if things were different due to a single event, thus the album's title. Today we are thrilled to premiere one piece of that concept, the infectiously catchy "Massachusetts." You can stream the song at the band's profile or in the replies. If you dig what you hear, This Is How The Wind Shifts is available for pre-order here. The band's upcoming headlining tour kicks off on January 25th and you can check out the dates and pre-order your...

The Warped Tour is going to help launch a new "emotional media" site, called Vixlet. I spent a few minutes trying to figure out exactly what this is going to be, but the quotes in the article don't give much more than buzz-words. That said, I'm excited to see what comes out of it. Obviously, I believe the internet and music go well together.

For the Fallen Dreams frontman Dylan Richter has left the band. His replacement will be announced soon.
StatementI would first like to start off by saying that the past four and a half years as a member of this band have been the best years of my life. I have met a lot of great people, and I’ve made a lot of great friends. The places I’ve seen along the way, I would have never imagined ever visiting in my whole entire life. This experience would have never been made possible without the members of this group, our fans, friends, families, management, booking agents, and our record labels. Thanks to the endless support of Mike Hocking, Ryan Nelson and everyone at Merch Connection, Craig...
