Read my review of the Boston, MA stop of Say Anything's "Rarities and More Tour" with Eisley, HRVRD and I the Mightyhere. It features footage of Max Bemis playing "A Boston Peace" live for the first time ever.
The intimate setting also afforded mastermind Max Bemis with the opportunity to get closer to the crowd. He said that, since they had the next day off, the band could go extra wild that night. And wild they went, for 75 intense minutes. Bemis deserves recognition for embracing the old material. He easily could have cashed his check for the rarities compilation without ever playing the songs; instead, fans are being treated to an entire tour dedicated to them. Bemis...

Today we're premiering the title track from Relient K's upcoming album, Collapsible Lung. It's my favorite track off the album, as it carries that emotional resonance we've come to expect in Relient K's music. You can stream it in the replies or over at the band's AP.net profile. The new album is in stores next Tuesday, July 2nd, and you can pre-order it here.
We have decided to part ways with Bradley Walden. This is not a total disbandment. There needed to be a change within the group and letting him go is more than a positive one. We apologize to any of our fans who showed their love and support with the previous line up. The last thing we wanted to do was let our fans down. Itís just a change that needed to happen. We wish Bradley the best in all future endeavors.
The Dismemberment Plan will release their new album, Uncanney Valley, on October 15th via Partisan Records. Additionally, the group will be performing at Riot Fest this year.

You can check out our new interview with The Summer Sethere. The band is currently on the Tilly's stage on this summer's Warped Tour, and will be touring the U.S. in the fall. The band's brand new album Legendary is out now.
Yeah, we've been radio minded with this record especially. We've always made pop music; as far as a band, we've always been a little more pop lenient. I think there were always times during our past two records in which we thought about doing some radio stuff, I think it's hard for a band to push to radio too pre-maturity, because if it fails, you're blacklisted. So we'd always think about it...and then pump the brakes and make a new record.
You can check out our interview with Architects (UK)here. The band is currently on the Monster Energy stage, and are not to be missed, especially if you like heavy music. The band will be writing a new record in September, as well doing another U.S. tour in the fall.
"Devil's Island" was one of the hardest songs to write because it's so prominent about where we're from and the London riots that were going on at the time, and it was something that we'd like to get across in a nice way, and we were really happy about it.
You can read our new interview with Big Chocolatehere. He's currently on the Spotify stage on this summer's Warped Tour, and someone you definitely want to check out if you like electronic music.
I was nervous, because that was my first real breath into this kind of stuff, I really feel like I've grown a lot and changed a ton since the last two years. So I was really nervous to come back and see how the Warped crowd would take the new stuff, and now my worries are all gone.
You can read our interview with New Found Gloryhere. The band is currently getting ready to release a new live album in the fall, which includes three new tracks.
I think the live record definitely captures how we are as a live band, with the crowd interaction and people singing along, it really sounds awesome in my opinion, we've been getting mixes back from it. We did it in Anaheim. But the live record is also going to have three new studio songs on it as well.
Listen to a mashup of Paramore's "Pressure" and The Wonder Years' "Coffee Eyes" in the replies. This is the Internet, so make sure you make a comment about it too. Also, the same guy mashed up Fall Out Boy's "My Songs Know What You Did In the Dark" and Paramore's "crushcrushcrush."
