PureVolume recently interviewed Aaron Gillespie (The Almost). You can check it out here.
It's like this curse as a musician where you can sometimes second-guess yourself. With this album I was like, 'Let's just write this record and see what happens.' I think as scatterbrained and overpopulated as the world is right now, it just needs honesty and I wanted the music to be fresh and honest even if the music isn't some crazy, avant-garde thing.

PropertyOfZack has published a tell-all interview with John D on the downfall of Bamboozle with serious details of what went wrong, and in turn why Skate And Surf and GameChanger are coming back. Check it out here.
There was a falling out at Bamboozle. A really bad one. But it wasn’t with Live Nation as a company. It was with a few individuals at upper management. And the rumors are true. I F bombed them. I went in and told them to take their job and stick it as far up their asses as they could put it. I said that, because I had reached a point.

Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo is not on the band's current Australian tour due to legal discrepancies with his band mates and management. Read his statement below.
I want to personally apologize to all of our fans in Australia who have bought tickets for the tour expecting to see me in my usual place on the drums.

So that you all know the truth, as of the end of the business day on February 14th, I was notified that I would not be drumming for the tour in Australia. I’m saddened, and to be honest I am shocked by the situation.

Last year, I discovered 90% of Slayer’s tour income was being deducted as expenses including the professional fees paid to management, costing the band...

Just read this article over at The Verge that explains how, "Spotify plans to ask labels for the rights to extend its free tier to mobile devices and make substantial cuts to the royalty fees it pays artists." And, while I am glad these services exist compared to piracy, I can't help but agree with the conclusion from The Brief:
No matter the outcome, artists are on the losing end: Spotify wins, and if their talks result in a favorable outcome, paves the way for Pandora et al to follow suit; the labels, who get shares in Spotify in return for their licensing agreements, win; users, who get access to a giant catalog of music whether they pay or not, win; and artists get to watch rich...
