Shirts for a Cure were robbed yesterday at Warped Tour.
Yesterday, an unexpected misfortune struck Shirts for a Cure. Our booth on the Warped Tour was robbed of a significant amount of donations we have received throughout our summer fund raising effort. These funds were designated to help with our ongoing financial support of the Community Health Center in Chicago. We do not want to let this organization down so we are reaching out to you, our community of loyal supporters to help us continue to help others. Please help spread the word (repost, retweet, retumble) and donate at: www.syrentha.org/donate Thank you. #fuckcancer

Very Small Array has put together a chart and analysis on the obscurity of hit songs.
Some pop songs are timeless classics. Some play endlessly at weddings and on oldies stations. Others find renewed vigor in movie trailers or because their lyrics can be applied to Golden Grahams. Still others just, well disappear. We started with the top 10 songs of each year from 1900 to present (as calculated by the Whitburn Project), recording each songs Google hits, Wikipedia presence and last.fm scrobbles to calculate an obscurity score.

If there is one thing I love in Austin, it's going to punk shows. The crowds are always some of the coolest people with the craziest stories. July 16th was no exception, especially with Lower Class Brats and The Applicators, The Casualties filled Red 7 with killer energy.
Formed in 1990, The Casualties took the stage with less umph than Ive seen before but I think its because they were lacked the mohawk of frontman Jorge Herrera. The band tore through song after song of their enormous catalog, most of which is hardcore punk- so hardcore to the point that I cant always understand whats being said.

Living in Gainesville for four years taught me lots of things, and one of them was that there existed in Central and Northern Florida a hotbed of talented punk and emo bands. I watched groups like Gainesville's Dikembe and Orlando's You Blew It! play house shows before they signed to Tiny Engines and Topshelf Records, respectively, and I discovered Orlando's Henrietta when they put out a split with Tallahassee's Echo Base (who they will hit the road with this summer - dates in the replies) and South Florida's Gillian Carter. Henrietta, which will release its debut LP, The Trick Is Not Minding, on August 28 via Animal Style, had a few older EPs which I then checked out at the time - and...

You can read our interview with The Summer Set here. The band is currently on the Warped Tour, and will be writing for a brand new record immediately after the tour is done, shooting for a Spring 2015 release.
Legendary came out in April of 2013, Id love to have a new record before April of 2015 just to say we got it out in under two years, thats really my main reasoning. I want to shorten the two year album cycle to about a year and a half, Id love to have it out in February.

You can read our interview with This Wild Life here. The band is currently on the Warped Tour, and will be releasing more video content in the fall, as well as writing new material. The band will also be one of the opening acts on Sleeping With Sirens and Pierce The Veil's winter co-headling tour.
Were going to do a really large U.S. Tour in the winter that isnt going to allow us to do any fall touring because of Warped Tours radius clause. So well be home and weve discussed doing some different things. Were definitely going to put out more video content in that time, well be writing more because we want to get ahead of the next record our records been out for a month now,...

In celebration of this week's release of Anberlin's final album, Lowborn, we are posting an in-depth, three-part interview special looking back over the band's 12-year career. Part II with vocalist Stephen Christian can be found here, while part I with drummer Nate Young is here.
Ive had so much success in the long term, and Im not trying to say it in any monetized way or the amount of CD sales. Im saying it by the fact that I went out, and Ill be able to tell my grandkids one day, Hey, follow your dreams, and really mean it, and then say that I did. I went out, had this crazy pipedream, and I just pursued it with all I had. Look at the places I got to go, and look at the...

The Front Bottoms will be releasing a split EP in the fall with rapper GDP.
Were going to put out a split EP in the fall with this rapper named GDP from Jersey. Hes a fantastic lyricist. I think it will be very positive. Hes in a project called #$ (Hash Money) its him and this DJ called Space Jesus. Tomorrow were going to meet up with him in Seattle. Hes going to come to all of the shows in California. Its all about keeping things freaky. It keeps things interesting.
