Working on new songs for a new Gaslight Anthem album in 2014. Dig it. Tourís been great, Brianís very pleased he hasnít has many photos of him taken. Heís busy in the back of the bus writing new songs, something about Bob Dylan and Led Zepplin and Neil Young in the same band. We donít know what heís on about. Weíll leave him be for nowÖ We havenít seen him in anything but sunglasses for the last three days. At least Ray Ban is very pleased. More to come, this will updated WAY more frequently now that weíve stolen it from Brian. Though he may arise from his tomb of 60ís and 70ís records and write something odd...
Weíve noticed a trend of people co-opting pop punk to mean whatever the shit they want it to mean. And hereís the thing: we get that punk is supposed to be all-inclusive and itís open to interpretation. But if we canít set up at least some broad musical boundaries, the genre is meaningless and everything is pop punk and we can include Dr. Dreís The Chronic.

We're sorry to announce that the four of us have decided to end our journey as Sharks.
Unfortunately all of our upcoming dates have been cancelled and we have no plans as of yet to play any final shows. We sincerely apologise to anyone who has bought tickets or were planning to buy tickets to any of these shows. On a positive note, we have just finished making a brand new music video for 'Gold' with our good friend Tom Lacey, which we'll be releasing for all of you in the coming weeks. We will also be holding a sale on all of the remaining Sharks shirts we have available, none of which will be re-printed.
Today we're streaming a new track called "This Is Your Brain On Love" from Houston, TX duo Fox & Cats. This is the title track from the group's upcoming EP set for release July 23rd, and trying to think of a way to describe them became sort of a challenge for me, although one I enjoyed because the song is a solid listen. Imagine pop song structure but with the influence of The Front Bottoms and Weatherbox. The song is also available for free download. Listen to it in the replies.

PureVolume recently interviewed Justin Pearson Mars of Retox about the band's new album, the genesis of the band, and where he think technology is leading all of us.
It's just people's people's uneducated opinions on how we sound and our uneducated opinion on how other things are. I read so many times in reviews for the Locust, "I love the keyboards" when it's actually the bass or guitar. That's not the listeners' fault or necessarily a criticism because even with RETOX it's not as obvious as a song with structure from, say, the Ramones. When the Locust released Plague Soundscapes and we kind of blew up a bit people were like, "I can do this with one hand, that's garbage." I wanted to...
