You can check out PropertyOfZack's recent interview with Nick and Jono Diener (The Swellers) here.
From The InterviewWe were in Rolling Stone. I thought that was cool for a bunch of dudes who put out a record without a label. That is pretty cool and made my parents real proud.

You can read Alter The Press' interview with Code Orange Kids here.
From The Interview I don't know about musically but there were a ton of influences. We just wanted to take the best parts of the 7"'s and the splits, trim the fat and try to make something short and straight to the point. We wanted to make something different that stood out amongst other hardcore LPs.

Today I want to spotlight a track called "Hear Our Song" from an incredible band called Safe from NY. Channeling the likes of Jimmy Eat World, Hot Rod Circuit, and Hey Mercedes, Safe is a throwback to early 2000s emo-rock that I love so much. I'm sure many of the site's more seasoned readers will appreciate the band as well. The band just released its debut full-length Cinematic Ocean which you can grab on iTunes and make sure you listen to "Hear Our Song" on the group's AP.net profile.

Kevin Lyman's Unite the United Foundation is auctioning off items to benefit the Kenadee Lucker Educational Fund.
MessageWe are all in shock about the sudden and tragic death of Mitch Lucker of Suicide Silence. Although the world and our lives will move on, he leaves behind a beautiful daughter, Kenadee, who will need the support that he promised her, and sadly will not be able to fulfill.

With that said, we feel his music family from the Vans Warped Tour and Rockstar Mayhem Festival can step up to help in the best way we can and that is to dedicate our winter charity auction proceeds to a trust fund for her future education and care.
Please show your support by checking our...

New Found Glory has posted a statement on their website regarding the Billboard article posted about earlier.
Message From the BandHey Everyone, we want to address an interview that misconstrued something that Jordan said and mislead people in thinking we are going on some kind of "hiatus". What Jordan was trying to say is we won't have an entire new album of originals until 2014 without letting the cat out of the bag about our live album idea with some new songs for next year. Unfortunately the press took that the wrong way or wanted to get some attention and twisted his words around. We love this band more than anything. NFG is proud to have the same members for 15 years now and has...

Earlier this week, Jason, Thomas, and I (along with various other people) were tweeting back and forth about the potential of a vinyl repress for Brand New's Deja Entendu. The conversation eventually evolved into a discussion of what vinyl records we covet and spawned the idea of this week's discussion thread. So vinyl lovers, what is your holy grail? What's a repressing you'd kill for or how much would you pay for an original pressing? What albums do you wish were actually pressed on vinyl (Cartel's Chroma was a popular answer on Twitter)? Let's get weird.
