Howdy everyone, I've got another fastest finger contest with our good friends in This Wild Life, this time for their show at the Starland Ballroom tonight in New Jersey, as part of the AP Tour, featuring Mayday Parade, Real Friends, and more. The first two people that can tell me Anthony's favorite hockey player and what team he plays for will win a ticket to the show tonight!

We premiered Shy Technology's "High Strung" back in July, and since then the song has really taken off, even being featured on Selena Gomez's Spotify Discovery playlist. Now the band has released a music video for the track. Hit the replies to check out the endearing new video, complete with Hawaiian shirts and a wacky wavy inflatable arm flailing tube man.

Hüsker Dü have a new online merch store. It's the band's first official website.
“There are more moving parts than we’d like to deal with, but we’ll see what happens,” Norton said, pointing to possible vaulted live recordings and film footage that could be issued anew. But it sounds like that's all still loose talk. “The main thing is, there’s ongoing communication between the three of us now,” Norton recapped -- another development that's only been decades in the making

On a Russian radio show of all places, Johnny Greenwood talked about Radiohead finishing the recording process for their untitled 9th studio record. He also said the band plan to tour next year.
“We have finished recording of the new album but we keep reevaluating the work we’ve done,” Greenwood told Russia’s Silver Radio. “We hope we’ll get it right soon, and after that we’ll start planning the next year’s tour.”

We made it to the 100th episode of our podcast -- now it's time to shake things up. Today we'd like to introduce you to the new podcast: Encore. We've undergone a name change, a little re-brand, and we're coming at you with a brand new special episode this week. This week's topics look at the reasons we decided to make this change, the process we went through in picking our new name and logo, the announcement of a special teespring campaign for limited edition Encore t-shirts, a special segment with guest Drew Beringer (where we talk about new music, what Drew's been up to, technology, and all kinds of stuff), and then -- of course -- we end talking about Jesse Lacey's emotional speech...

I was lucky enough to sit down with Lydia to discuss the band's new album Run Wild for almost a half an hour. We talked to the band working with two different producers, the Illuminate pressing that they had nothing to do with, and why Leighton hasn't listened to his debut record in years, among other insightful topics. Check out the full interview here.
Leighton: To be perfectly honest, I have not listened to that record in years.

Matt: It’s like looking at a picture of yourself in high school.

Justin: You don’t want to look at it, but it’s the one hanging on your mom’s wall.
