”Flicker, Fade” possesses the sincerity that made me fall in love with Taking Back Sunday in the first place, with its eruptive and incredibly catchy chorus sandwiched with the band’s mastery of soft/loud/soft dynamics, as John Nolan delivers his impassioned yells buoyed the song’s chaotic outro.
Sacramento's Fox 40 is reporting that Hunter Moore was released on a $100,000 bond today into the custody of his parents after being arrested by the FBI earlier this week. Moore is reportedly being required to "completely dismantle his website" while in the presence of federal agents and cannot use the internet while the federal investigation is underway. His parents having to install parental controls is the best part of this.

It's podcast Friday! Today's episode has Drew, Zack, and I talking about our most anticipated albums of the year. Or that's what the premise was until we kind of just started talking about music and anticipating being let down by music. Bonus: Drew's one true love, 30 Seconds to Mars, is revealed ... and I piss off a good portion of our listeners by trashing on their favorite bands. The episode comes on the heels of our "most anticipated" feature, as well as right before we announce the results of the reader poll for your most anticipated albums of the year (there's still time to vote).

As a measure of personal/mental health, we...

What a touching experience.

Watch Grey Gordon's new video for “500 Miles” at Noisey. The video was directed by Joshua Ihrie.
"I'm really happy with how this came together,” says Gordon. “The whole idea was hatched and executed within the span of the week. We wanted to do something simple as opposed to overly conceptual. “500 Miles” is a song about coming home, so we thought it would be fitting to keep with that theme and highlight aspects of my day to day life in Indiana. Not included is the 6 hours a night I spend watching Batman the Animated Series and listening to Gucci Mane."
