Raquel Banks talked to Shaun Cooper from Taking Back Sunday for 34th Street.
It’s just part of life, and I don’t read the internet except for my Twitter feed, so I don’t see what other bands are up to or what other people are saying about our band. I’m a grown-ass man. I’ve got enough going on in my life with my wife and my kid, and I’m just a pretty happy guy. I’m living my dream, so when there’s drama, I don’t care or really even give it much of a second thought because it doesn’t mean anything. People get all hyped up about stuff on the internet for a couple days, and everyone likes complaining and bitching and moaning and talking shit and at the end of the day, it doesn’t change my...

It looks like Mest is getting back together for some shows.
Mest was formed in 1995 on the SouthSide of Chicago in a town called Blue Island by the singer Tony Lovato and his cousin Matt Lovato the bassist. After touring the world for many years and releasing 5 records the band decided to part ways in 2005. No talks of ever playing together again had taken place until a couple months ago when Matt sent a message to Tony telling him his daughter was learning Mest songs on the bass guitar and she demanded he tell him. Through that one message it lead to the conversation of what it would be like to get on stage together with the original lineup and play a couple shows. Tony and Matt then...

Jason TateAs always, check out my blog and the AP.net podcast.
Lueda Alia Arms & Sleepers' instrumental hip-hop album Swim Team is still always on repeat.
Keagan IlvonenEveryone should go watch Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton, it's a documentary about Stones Throw, one of my favorite labels ever. It's sad, inspiring and reminds you to follow your dreams. It's great stuff and it's on Netflix, so there's no excuse to not watch it.

Tom DeLonge has written "the fastest punk song" of the last 15 years of his career, and is involved in 6 contracts with best selling authors to write 15 novels with accompanying EP soundtracks. These deals are part of why he couldn't work on Blink182.
One of the reasons all this Blink stuff went haywire was because I am in 6 contracts with Best Selling Authors that are co-writing 15 Novels with me personally. Each one has an EP soundtrack that launches with it. I told my manager the contract that was sent to me for the Blink deal contained weird new language that I had to drop all that music for almost a year. I said I couldn't, but I could record the album in and around those things...
