Last week (in spite of two traffic jams on I-95) I made it down to Philly's Electric Factory to see The Maine on the American Candy Tour. Real Friends and Knuckle Puck were out to support. Check out our photos and show review in the replies!

Save Face are releasing a split with My Heart, My Anchor on May 26th. Their side was produced by Jesse Cannon (Transit, Man Overboard). We are premiering the song (and video) "Brain," which you can check out in the replies. The song is definitely reminiscent of early Transit in ways, but it has some cool noodly guitar parts that have some prog influences and the vocals veer toward screams at times. This is the first song the band has released as a four-piece instead of having five members. If you like what you hear, you can pre-order the split.

Ghost Thrower surprised fans last week when they announced they're releasing a surprise album, Batsy, on May 15th - tomorrow. Frontman Travis Alexander recorded the album by himself at a friend's lake house in New Hampshire over the course of a week this past winter. The seclusion yielded some of the band's most desperate material yet. This is especially apparent in the new song "Seaside Suicide," which you can stream in the replies.

Sudden Suspension recently signed to Bad Timing Records and will release a new EP called There's A Bigger Picture Here on June 16th. We are streaming a new song off of it called "As Good As It Gets," which you can hear in the replies. The track is a straightforward fast-paced pop-punk jam, not unlike the material on Forever Came Calling's Contender or Knuckle Puck's EPs. From the sounds of it, the EP should be a good one for summer drives with the windows rolled down. The band will be doing a summer tour with Bad Luck - dates for that are also below. If you like what you hear, be sure to pre-order the EP.

Warner Music Group said it now makes more money from streaming than downloads
Streaming revenue from the company’s recorded music unit, generated by companies like Spotify and YouTube, grew 33 percent in Q2, Warner CEO Stephen Cooper announced during the company’s earnings call. Warner says digital revenue grew 7 percent overall — which means download sales from outlets like Apple’s iTunes decreased during the same period.

Matt Pond PA had their stuff stolen last night in Chicago. They have set up a GoFundMe page for donations.
We've been blindsided, robbed in Chicago after one of the best shows of the tour. The worst of the worst made off with our passports, money and computers. Now, I've staggered a good deal in this life. But this time is especially heavy because I truly care about these people. Because we also lost words, pictures, music and privacy that mean more than anything that comes with a price tag. (Although, the price tag of our itemized list comes to $12,000.) If you'd like to help us out, we'd truly appreciate it. Insurance covers some of what's gone, but it's far from all.

Y'all should be anticipating this record.
