Butch Walker just posted a bunch of tweets in a row addressing when fans think a producer changed a band and how Fall Out Boy and Panic! at the Disco don't want to keep making 90's pop-punk albums.
I love how people assume when I work with an artist that the actual ARTIST has nothing to do with deciding how it will sound. I love my day job, but these kind of shallow assumptions take some fun out of it. I've seen em say the producer "ruined their favorite band." ..When most people have no clue what they are talking about or how it works. Sometimes, God Forbid, the ARTIST comes in with their vision. Good on Panic and FOB for wanting to evolve and change. Most bands in their scene can't...

A behind-the-scenes look at how Cobra Starship's recent lyric video was created can be read over at Shutterstock.
Going in to this shoot, there was a very ambitious concept: light painting all of the lyrics around New York City using a Pixelstick. The shoot would incorporate stop-motion techniques, as well as hyperlapse shots, going from Brooklyn to Manhattan over the Williamsburg bridge, as well as through Times Square.

What happened when Milo went to college? Check out this great profile on the Descendents frontman.
Despite the unconventional shifting that he does between the worlds of molecular biology and punk rock, Aukerman says heís never suffered "any kind of fallout." Fellow scientists, he says, "are very interested in someone whoís not just stuck at the lab bench all day and who can actually go out and do something completely different, something wacky and bizarre." Likewise, for peers in punk rock, "even if they don't really understand what I do necessarily, it's so different to them that it becomes more of a facet that can be fascinating," he says. Even Aukermanís parents have come around to...

Gene Simmons has declared that "rock is finally dead." Now that we've got that settled ... what's next?
Rock did not die of old age. It was murdered. Some brilliance, somewhere, was going to be expressed, and now it wonít, because itís that much harder to earn a living playing and writing songs. No one will pay you to do it.

Our interview with Finch can be found here, where they talk about reuniting for their first album in over nine years.
I donít know what people are expecting and expecting of us. I just hope that people like it, thatís all. If people donít like it, thatís OK. It wonít stop us from making music. I donít think that ever has. Weíve never stopped because we didnít think that people mattered, it was just because we werenít comfortable. We stop when things feel odd.

A Disney representative has responded to Rolling Stone about the whole Deadmau5 thing.
Disney vigorously protects its trademark rights, and we oppose Mr. Zimmerman's attempt to register a logo that is nearly identical to our trademarks for his commercial exploitation. Our opposition is not about the use of the Deadmau5 costume. The music was appropriately licensed, and there is no merit to his statement.

soÖi've been keeping a huge secret and i'm ready to share it. A few months ago i headed off to California to meet up with my good friend Alecia, who you know as P!nk. i brought a guitar and a book with a few songs i'd been working on. I had no clue what would come of it, but was hoping for the best; the best being 1 song. Better than the best happened and after 2 weeks of just the two of us in the studio, we wrote and recorded a full album. Iím so proud of these songs and canít wait...

Trent Reznor recently talked with The Wall Street Journal about the Gone Girl score:
"I was listening to that calming, placating music and thought, we need to tap into this. The movie is about the facade of the good neighbor, the good Christian, the good wife. So the notion was to start with music that's attempting to give you a hug." The result is a score composed of lilting, haunting synths interspersed with doleful piano melodies and accentuated by the orchestral arrangements.
